Needless to say panic ensued followed by a quick sprint back to the car
    Hey Timpoo,
    Meant to ask now that you have your car, did you manage to get the side table in the froot or did you loose the bet and we are about to see a YouTube video of an australian model S driver dancing naked through the sun roof?

    There is an article on the i8 in the AFR today. Not a bad review but seems a little ambivalent - and one comment was "There is quite a growl in Sport....".

    - - - Updated - - -

    PS The car was listed as base price $299,000 plus costs.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Sorry about the side on view - somehow changed on upload.

    I wonder who would purchase an i8 over a Model S?

    Slower, more expensive, still uses fossil fuels....seems like a bad deal to me!

    I guess if you really want a 2 door with kers, it's still considerably cheaper (and easier to attain) than a 918, P1 and LaFerrari. Also better looking than an NSX, though that's subjective.

    I certainly wouldn't, but the i8 has a very 'supercar' look about it. I saw a few through europe, and had a good close look at BMW velt. It's definitely a head turner.

    Hi Guys - I was thinking of taking a drive to the Blue Mountains today - having the 60KWH model it might be a bit tight getting there and back - just wondering if there are guys around that are willing to share their charger in such cases / emergencies - I'm certainly open to anyone changing at my place - I live in Pymble.

    Does anyone know if a source / central point of contact exists for all Tesla owners willing to share their home chargers whilst we are waiting for the superchargers to come??

    PlugShare - EV Charging Station Map - Find a place to charge your car! has blue markers for peoples homes (you to sign into plugshare to view details, i think its a basic attempt a privacy from robots ) you could use that. or you could just make another custom map or thread on the forum. plugshare isn't tesla exclusive but why reinvent the wheel. and it has filters so you can exclude all the J1772 and the wall sockets (3112).
