Unfortunately no, but hope you get all the up to date Gossip :) ..
eg Warrantees, new battery costs, any change in personnel ? Who actually decides on cust. service/warantee stuff/ parts charges ? is UK 100% aligned with US policy on customer relations etc. ?

If you run short of juice dont forget that on J5 M4 (near M25) there is an HPC at
Heathrow/Windsor Marriott Hotel
Ditton Rd
Datchet
Slough SL3 8PT

really close to Tesla ... there again there are rapids @ Fleet, and Winch.
Enjoy !

Finally made it. It's hotter than hell in here - impressive number of cars on display though.

So - some highlights:
No new Supercharger location announcement
SC is Elon's top priority - US, UK, China
Free airport shuttle (LHR) from West Drayton - car checked while on holiday and stored for free
Model S being pitched to HMG for ministerial cars re: recent announcement

Not a lot then, like the idea of the airport valet service type thing though, nice.

There was news that an SC agreement had been signed today, but no details allowed yet

But I did get to meet @dpeilow - every day is a school day. Learned much.

like the valet parking idea, that could save a few hundred each year, wish they would just get on with the superchargers

They aren't the rate determining step, believe me

Interesting comment: less than 50% of Model S owners thus far have ever visited a Supercharger. Worldwide was the context, but wasn't stated explicitly

Well it was quite a low key event by previous standards but the new Country Director, Georg Ell gave a nice talk. I found out that this will be the only service centre for London going forward (there were plans to keep West Acton open for Roadster but this has changed - good).

Good to meet Mark. I really enjoyed the chat, we'll have to do it again sometime :)

I was the only Roadster owner there. In fact the young employee directing parking on the way in clearly didn't recognise it.

I tried to fish for info on the 400 mile battery but they knew no more than we do. Apparently it was not meant to be discussed yet ;)

Disappointed re charging too. I was told at the last minute there was a 32A socket, only to then be delayed until after the speeches so we would have only got 30 minutes on it. It was for my friend's Outlander PHEV so not a disaster, but still.
