Stopped by the Tesla Dealer in LA today

Like I said, I finally stopped by the dealer and looked up close at the cars. They seem very well put together, and the dealership itself is very impressive as well. The general manager was actually very nice, which is not very common in most dealerships. Kudos to Tesla.

I thought so.....but calling someone a 'kid' at 17 might draw a reaction either way.

Around here... L.A. if I were a salesperson I would be VERY nice.... to anyone.. from kids... to the guy who looks homeless...


You really should be in general IMO... no reason to treat strangers poorely... some people you know, on the other hand, may be completely justified...

P.S. Glad they took care of you... never stopped there personally. Nice BMW.... very cool

I actually talked to the general manager about you haha. He said Aaron called him last night and said he's been loving the Tesla.
