    Okay. Intrigued. But none of us should hold back. Been a long wait.

    Folks I am aware of a sig model s here in Ma having trouble with title and taxes and therefore not drivable. Has been forced to sit in a garage (imagine). Cinergi concerned for you. Please confirm they will be delivering title with car and that sales tax to Ma will be waived - think you will need more than bill of sale. Will share more info when I have it!
    Perhaps I could put you in touch with our first MA sig owner who is now busy paving the way for you and me.

    Good times. I don't know the details of my delivery yet. They're supposed to have everything all set *when the car arrives* including title, registration, etc.
    What do you mean sales tax waived? Is there a program to waive sales tax for EVs in MA now or something?
    I'm paying cash for the car so that might make it easier for me (if your friend is paying with a loan) ... As it is, I have the Roadster trade-in which is already complicating things.
    I'd love to talk to this person and cross-share information!

    Why would MA sales tax be waived? There isn't any sales tax exception for EV's AFAIK.

    I'm waiting for a delivery date before I say anything ... *Theoretically* the car is on a truck and on its way, but I haven't had confirmation of that yet. It's *supposed* to be here at the end of next week. I'm not holding my breath (given everything else that's gone on thus far)

    One of my co-workers said he saw a blue Model S with Mass plates driving on NH-101. I asked him if he was sure and he replied "it had the big T on the back." He is a gearhead so I trust his vehicle recognition skills.

    Hmm, hmm. That's hard to credit. The only blue Model Ss produced to date (that we know of) are marketing cars, but none have made it into New England. The only possibility I can think of is that we have one of the very earliest SSL Signatures that opted for a custom color (and chose blue). That's not unbelievable, as we've heard that there were ~6 custom-color cars but only two are accounted for (GGR's BGC and Roblab's Hershey bar).

    Forgive me if I have weak details, but my understanding is that Somehow the car was delivered to MA without the title. Further, none of us want to pay tax to both CA and MA, and the car is bought in CA so that is where the tax goes. But in order to bypass paying tax at the time of registration in MA ( as you would usually do), you need proof you paid tax to The Terminator (CA), and a bill of sale is apparently insufficient. Tesla is evidently providing some additional proof. Vagosites here not helpful but clearly sounds like a real hassle. Please PM me if you are expecting delivery within 2 weeks and I'll try and get more info. Meantime, please chime in about what you know about the challenges of delivery in MA.
