Very cool...got to meet Elon at the Austin store grand opening and got a picture with him and even got a brief conversation in. He was super accommodating and very friendly after what has had to be an incredibly long week (Europe, SpaceX, etc.). The store folks were also super nice and helped run down some additional detail on my delivery date (they think more like end of April, which is baffling to me) and even let my 10 year old pose for a picture in the Roadster (their idea!). The two Tesla chargers in the mall garage (The Domain in Austin) will be opened up for 24 hour access after grand opening weekend is complete!
Overall, a lot of fun, and I'm now the proud owner of a Tesla hat (paid, not free). Plus the guy looking at the car had questions about price, etc. which in Texas the store employees couldn't legally answer, so I was able to have them cover the airs while I answered his questions! :-)
