    RE: Delivery Specialist:

    I asked my OE rep (yesterday) about the possibility of me (and others here in Texas) getting a rep to come by after the car is delivered to do a post-delivery orientation to the vehicle. I guess I am like many others on this forum, in that I have read so much that others have posted that I feel like I have been remotely oriented. Nonetheless, I am also a firm believer of "if I have paid for it, I really would like to receive it"

    Hence, my OE rep stated that Tesla is still working with their legal department to see how they can care for us in the Lone Star State without being in opposition to the law - sort of like the Get Amped tour being approved under different circumstances in sites in Texas. Nonetheless, I assume they will get something figured out, whether it would be as a Ranger Service visit, or a Follow up customer service visit, or something.

    We shall see.

    Maybe they will create an orientation app for the touch screen...

    I would be happy to have a dedicated webcast with Q & A's from us available. I'm sure they will try their best to get us the info.

    I don't like spending $990 for "Tesla Personal Delivery" when that's not what you get. I'll take the car over to the Galleria store if I have questions. They've been very impressive thus far.

    Does anyone know the exact Texas law that is causing all the problems for Texas? I called the local office for Senator Cornyn and spoke with someone for about 20 min who was very interested in the matter. It is of course a state issue but he said he would look into it. I'm trying to speak with a human at Gov. Perry's office about this issue but am having a hard time getting ahold of someone.

    I've not been able to find the actual laws, but there is reference here: http://www.txdmv.gov/whatyouneed/pub...ler_manual.htm. In the licensing section it states that manufacturers can't be dealers and then much of the rest of the document outlines the things that only licensed dealers can do.

    I reached out to NADA about a week ago to try and get their take on things and understand why anyone could justify this regulation in a state that supposedly believes in the free market, but they have not responded to my e-mail. The goal this weekend is to draft letters to state legislators.

    It is in Section 503 somewhere. I am continuing to look in between cases.

    I don't see the part in chapter 503 that actually prevents a manufacturer from being a dealer. Sorry I'm missing it, but can you be more specific?
