Anyone in the San Antonio, TX area already have a Roadster or waiting for a Model S? I'm waiting on a Model S myself. Thanks.
Never got s confirmation. I'm gone next Saturday, I'll shoot for Saturday, 4/20.
I have contacted the Pearl Brewery folks again to see if we can set up in a lot Saturday morning, 4/20. Sort of an Earth Day celebration, I hope they say yes. They said they'd let me know, I'll update you when I hear.
Anyone here tried out the chargers near the movie theater at the RIM shopping center? For that matter are there any nearby alternatives? I usually stay at the Westin La Cantera, and I don't believe they have chargers. With a 60 kwh, getting to San Antonio from Austin is no problem, but getting back is!
Just a FYI for anyone coming to Austin. Both the Tesla Service Center and the Tesla Gallery have HPWCs available for free charging. The Gallery is in The Domain and the HPWC is in the parking structure across the street (free parking, open 24hrs). The Service Center HPWC is probably only available during business hours.
Funny, I stayed at the Marriott cy at the RIM Saturday night, worked great for me, it was about a 10 min walk to the marriott so i did a full night charge ($1/hr at ~21 miles /hr) an they had vid surveillance. the problem you might face is of the 5 chargers, 3 were being used by ICE cars when I showed up. Even worse , one was a manager of the theatre. (Saw him get out of a silver small sedan). But an overnight should be free.
Just discovered this San Antonio connection. Took delivery about a month ago on a black/black pano 85P, grey 21" wheels, with all the bells and whistles. Simply amazing! I' m never going back to ICE.
@dhruska- Welcome.. glad to see more and more showing up in San Antonio. I actually just saw my first MS (other than mine) in town yesterday. A white one headed north on Bulverde.
Keeping an eye out for the rest of you all. Hard to miss those sweet looking DRLs.
@riceuguy- Only charger I've used in town is the free one by Kohls (281 & 1604). Chargepoint, 30A. Call the 800 number if you don't have a Chargepoint proxy card and they'll start it. I got about 17-20 mi/hr. A lot of nearby restaraunts and shopping (make sure you stop in Kohls to keep it legal).
New guy here - took delivery of my grey model S about a month ago in San Antonio. i absolutely love it.
only two slight problems noticed thus far.
1. wasn't watching it closely enough recently on an evening trip to austin and back. Ran the AC full blast up there and didn't have enough range to get back. had to stop at random hotel at 11 pm to get at least 10 more miles of range. big pain but lesson learned.
2. my car gets hot (and it's only May!).
All in, I am thrilled with the car and smile every time I pass a Valero. This needs to keep happening for electric car sales.
@rmiggins: Congrats on delivery. I noticed the heat too, so I took it and got 30% Solargard Ultra tint installed on 4 sides and the rear. Supposed to block 95% of heat. It made a noticible difference. Now I feel way more heat come through the windshield than I do the sides.
360 Tint in town did mine for $430. They've done a couple Model S's now.
And don't forget there are chargers at the Austin Service Center and the Domain Gallery, in case you need them in the future.
Hopefully we'll get some good news about Texas Superchargers this week.
There is an iphone app called PlugShare.
Pulls up a map of all EV charging stations around your location and provides details about each one.
9 more days! August 7.... Bated breath.
Jie - Congratulations, hope your baby is delivered on time and they don's have to do a T-Section!
I have ordered a Model S in grey, but have a few days before the start of build date and would like to see one in silver. Anyone out there close and willing to show off your silver S?
I will be in SA for a conference on Sunday and will have my silver Model S at the Westin Riverwalk if nothing else comes through before then...feel free to email me at my screen name @gmail.com
