I was quoted (US) $6000 even. Plan to get them here when the snow starts (Nov-ish).

Got a quote at €7000 incl. service from my dealer in Duesseldorf which pretty much looks like a 'you have no option'-quote.

As options might have changed during the last weeks/month, are there any after marked options?
What are the options in Europe, or even better what is already approved/ available in Germany?

Incredible deal, The "other" Chicago dealer just gave me a quote a shade under double what you paid!

It seems that it is impossible to get Yokohama tires from anywhere but Fisker dealers. Each tire (without the rim) goes for about 700 euros, which amounts to robbery in daylight to put it mildly. Similar tires used on Bentleys cost about third of that amount. However after researching the market, it seems that we have no choice but pay this amount. I would like to dedicate those funds to bigger budget for software programmers @Fisker.
