I learned recently that, upon becoming a Tesla owner, I will have use of the Tesla reserved parking spaces at the Houston Galleria. There are 4 or 5 of them roped off and 2 of them have Roadster chargers available.
This is a huge perk - not that I spend a lot of time at the Galleria (and when I do it's often just to visit the Tesla store). But when I go, if it happens to be on a weekend or during holiday shopping season or whatever, it can be a royal pain to find parking.
In addition, there are EV parking spots at places like Whole Foods (again, I rarely go but my wife likes it). And I was tipped off by someone on this board that my favorite restaurant Twin Peaks has two EV parking spots available only steps away, which I've yet to see occupied.
I don't anticipate actually needing to charge at any of these places since I'm getting the 85kwh battery, but I find that I'm very excited about the prospect of having VIP parking at many venues. [Side question: can I plug in at a public station without actually charging?]
Anyone else discover parking or other perks they will gain with the purchase of their Model S?
