New forum member and new owner. My Roadster is on it's way from Malvern to San Francisco (one of the first of the 2018 USA cars). It will be the daily driver for 100 miles a day. By coincidence went for the factory trip on vacation back in the UK and while being guided along the red path, there was my build number! A rolling chassis, engine and everything! A genuine tearful moment, "driver meets newborn car". Next problem is getting insured in the US, AAA doesn't want to know. That and thinking up a suitable 7 letter registration that hasn't already been taken. Doubtless more posts when she arrives.

Welcome from London Audioman.

I lived SF on my one and only visit in the 80s.

Some nice driving roads in the Bay Area I seem to remember.

Hope the Roadster arrives soon and proves a great involving drive for your daily drive.

As others have said, welcome to the madness of TM. I hope your new car is all you hoped for, I do envy your ability to do the coast road down to LA in it, what a drive that will be.
I did it in a Firebird years ago and have never forgotten it.
Here for a good time not a long time!!
