    Hey everyone. Took possession of my new prime today! I’m really excited. I’m in Iowa and primes are just now coming around.

    My previous cars have been gas guzzlers. I had a 370z, but got a dog so I went to a Mercedes GLA 250 4matic. My Benz lease was up and I decided it was time to get something worth the money instead of dumping so much money into maintenance on a Benz. Even made the commitment to buy it.

    99.9% of my driving should be electric. My commute is going to be about 10 miles round trip and there’s even a free charger at work, which I believe is solar powered, and I figure by the time I’ve got this paid off and am looking for a toy car there should hopefully be some fully electric reasonably priced EV sports cars(I’d love to get back to the track some day)

    One thing I did have the dealer do is disable the reverse beeping that everyone loves to hate.

    Any other suggestions for a new owner from you guys that have had the car for while? I’ve been getting used to more eco driving for the last month or so since I decided on a prime(upped my mpg substantially on my old car) so hopefully it won’t tske me too long to achieve amazing efficiency while driving.

    Congratulations on the new addition! You're going to love the feeling of driving in EV. Ask your dealership if they can disable it or reduce it down to 1 beep. Enjoy in great health!
