Model S Pictures debrief (San Jose 2012, Belgian & Dutch Test Ride 2013)

Hi Team,
Glad to find a handful of enthusiasts online in the Tesla Community.

While waiting for our Model S delivery, I wanted to share my journey in pictures... It all started back in the early years 2010-2011.. then a first encounter in San Jose in March 2012 :

First Belgian Test Ride in Brussels : http://www.flickr.com/photos/mgillet/sets/72157633525545222/

Dutch Test Ride (Brussels Store was not open at the time). This test ride was longer and allowed the family to join ! http://www.flickr.com/photos/mgillet/sets/72157633863170882/

I have a third Test ride to upload soon plus the Grand opening pictures debrief from The Brussels Store.

Hope you'll enjoy these and I look forward to engage with you.

@martin.gillet

Thanks for posting.

The last time I visited Belgium (in 1978), it seemed that all cars were required to have a "3rd tail light," a red light on or near the middle, that stayed on all the time. I think it was required for increased safety in fog and bad weather.

Did they drop that requirement? I don't see one in any of the Model S photos. The Model S already has a third brake light (top of the rear window), but the 3rd tail light is something different.

@BobW
We have had this third stop requirement for awhile but it was supposed to be on when braking. This requirement is still on, a EU requirement I suppose.
I'm assuming Tesla is abiding every legal requirement thus this is compliant with EU & Belgian laws.

:) Thx Martin!

Thanks! Wonderful pics, also from a photographic point of view. Super quality!
[What camera you use?]

Kudos for your kind words, glad you are enjoying these.

Most of pictures (check EXIF data) are taken using a Nikon D90 with Lens Tamron 18-270 as I often travel.
Time Line feed on premise is done using iphone 5. I add from time to time iphone pics and Dermandar panorama into the sets.

I happened to be there at the right time at the right place. I'm the only one who caught the Model S platform arriving in Brussels. It was not planned at all, I just visited the shop....

My five cents,
Martin

Great pix. You're quite a shooter!

Thanks Brian, I'm a serial shooter :)

BTW, 'Kudos' means congratulations, well done. Not "thanks". ;) So you praised and admired Geir for praising you! :D

Hi again, Thanks for the heads up then, as I'm using kudos as thank you ever since all my US peers are using it in the SAP Community network :)
Martin

Nikon D90 being a "prosumer" it is obvious that the photographer knows what he is doing.
Martin - kudos to you!

;-)
