If the drip wasn’t visible when the lid was closed, I would have left it. It was visible in the gap between the hood and bumper...

Jeez that is crazy, who would ever think that options would be removed from the car being it was used

This seems really shady to me and it sounds like there isnít much the buyer can do about it.

This one is ridiculous since the option was on the Munroney sticker. Sounds like his best option is to contact Tesla service and ask why features were removed from the car when it was sold originally with those features.

I know there are a few people with the know-how to turn features on through a hack -- and I could see in those cases that Tesla should disable features not paid for.

But this is ridiculous...

I don't have any doubt that he's a POS, but I'd call that weak evidence. Well-liked people with mysteriously deep pockets throw their money at frivolous purchases all the time, while kids go to bed hungry every night. That isn't evidence that they're pieces of shit.

Are you saying the Obamas’ pockets are “mysteriously” deep? Or do you mean other people
