I had the pleasure of dropping my son off at Jaguar Marin last evening. As soon as I pulled in, and before I got out the car almost everyone in the dealership came out, with bright eyes and big grins. They LOVED the car. They were amazed at the look and lines of the car, did not realized how big Model S was, as the felt it would be a small departure from Roadster. They were astonished by the 17 inch screen - they said you could see the world through that screen. They loved the styling and profile of the car. In particular, one salesman said "I never owned a red car and I am a buff, but this red is the most beautiful red I have ever seen". I informed him, he would be too later as Signature red is now gone.
One of the salesperson previously worked at British Motors in Silicon Valley, and test drove Roadster during development in 2006. His dad owns a lotus, so was quite familiar with the Tesla program. In fact, he was informed then that Tesla had plans to develop a sedan in the near future. The bottom line is, Model S was a big hit at Jaguar Marin. One son has a MBZ - I guess, I will have to take him in at the next opportunity :).
