How to arrange a test drive

So I used the web form to request a test drive a week ago. They'll generally get back in 1-2 days, I'm informed.

Nothing yet. And no, the reply wasn't eaten by a spam filter; I run my own spam filter (Barracuda 200) and checked.

So I request a call from the San Jose store a couple of days ago. Nothing yet, and they're not picking up their phone this morning.

Next would be the Fremont store. Ah, I see they're not even open to the public; really: it's "by appointment only."

You know, I'm starting to really regret signing that petition at I can go to any BMW, Jaguar, Audi, Mercedes, etc. dealer and drive any car on the lot TODAY. But with Tesla, it seems I have to...well, I don't know what, really, since I haven't even been able to talk to anyone about a test drive. Offer burnt sacrifices? Approach on bended knee?

Whatever the problem is, it's got me seriously re-evaluating my interest. I wonder what the service experience would be like.

And of course Tesla called not ten minutes after I posted this. Perhaps they monitor the forum? In any case my test drive is set up for the San Jose location at 2PM next Wednesday...

Please post your thoughts after the test drive.
