Agree! The more dealer BS I'm seeing and experiencing the more this model makes sense. Sure pro-dealer "lobbyists" will tell u Tesla's sales/service model isn't mature... but u just gotta bite the bullet and accept the trend.Read this article today and this is what I really like to see happen: Death to the car dealership — the Tesla sales model is poised to take over America
Do you see any benefit working with a dealer?
It's pretty easy to see and test drive a Tesla.I think dealers need to be involved somehow because I don't see the majority of people willing to order a car sight-unseen and without taking a test drive. Purchasers of Teslas (and EVs in general, now) are usually a different breed. It would be nice to have some type of hybrid system where you order your specs based on the manufacturer's price and the dealer gets a cut for handling the test drive, paperwork, and delivery.
