Hello everyone from Germany's south west,

I've been following the youtube channel for quite some time now, lurked around the forum a little bit and am currently deciding wether to order a reservation T-Shirt. :D

A little bit about myself: I am a freelance software architect / developer, Model 3 + powerwall 2
reservation holder and had some stock (from March 2015) until Wednesday.

The reason I got into Tesla was overall technical (nerdy) interest in technology at first, am now a little enthusiast mainly because of my 1 y/o son because of whom I really want to cut CO2 (and other) emissions anywhere possible. That's why we installed a solar array on our roof and are now strongly considering the Powerwall 2.

Currently my wife and I don't drive the cleanest cars as recent studies found out, after Dieselgate they suddenly improved testing, who would have guessed :D so we want to switch the smaller car (Hyundai i30) for a Model 3 and maybe the bigger one for a Model Y. The problem is that the bigger (and newer :( ) one (Hyundai i40) is a Diesel car and the state of Baden-Württemberg is currently considering banning Diesel cars like ours from inner cities which basically means that we have to get rid of it in the near future.

Anyways I am looking forward to discuss EV / Tesla / Model 3 with all of you.

@Forrest , herzlich willkommen auf M3OC! Immer froh wenn hier ein Europäer sich zusätzlich einschreibst! Wir sind aber schon ziemlich global und der @TrevP spricht selbst ein bisschen Deutsch! :D
Südwest Deutschland? Heißt das Bayern? BMW Land? :p Ich fahre jetzt einen X5 2.5D und freue mich auch auf den vollkommen sauberen Model ≡ um zu schalten!! Leider habe ich spät meine €1,000 ausgegeben... darum wahrscheinlich noch 2 Jahr warten... :rolleyes:
Viel Spaß hier!! :)

@Michael, merci beaucoup! Non, je suis situé à Baden-Württemberg, pays de Daimler et Porsche. Je vis seulement 20 km de la France. Super Deutsch, mein Französisch ist leider nicht mehr so gut.

@TrevP J'ai appris hier que tu parle francais et aujourd'hui que tu parle allmand! Grand compliment!

Unfortunately I reserved also way too late in July 2016 and I really really want AWD (my wife not so much) so I won't get my Model 3 any time soon as well.

Danke! Ton français est excellent, bravo!
Yeah, there's more of us who have a while to wait yet, but, worry not, the reward will be worth the wait!! ;)
Schönen Tag!
