Default Fiskerphilly opening in Florida?

Quick question Florida folks. Harleyguy and I were talking, as he isn't able to service many Fisker's anymore. I had a thought (JUST A THOUGHT) of possibly renting space monthly or quarterly in central FL maybe Pompano area to service the cars. Sort of a "pop-up shop" Again just an idea at this point, not sure if the costs and time investment would be worthwhile as many owners seem to be migrating towards West Palm and Miami Karma dealers.
Feel free to share thoughts, and no I have no plans to do the same in CA or TX (or DC metro @Ninja)

Hi FiskerPhilly,

FYI. Pompano is in South Florida, not central.

I probably never would have sold my old Karama if I knew you could service it here in S.FL.

I hope for all Florida Fisker Owners you go through with it.

Joe, I have a place in pompano and give you two thumps up and will definitely be a customer. In fact my car is registered in Florida and if you do open, I would park my Karma there permanently -- keep me posted.

I think from your own perspect, it is not a good idea to start a shop only service one model. but for all karma owners around the area, for sure it is a blessing. so I think maybe new Karma auto should hire ya at their shop to serive old fisker customers. this way, ya get reasonable paid. and we have a professional and realiable service. haha😀

Not looking to go all in and own a business there. I have a contact with an existing shop I may rent space from time to time to limit overhead and simplify

Open a shop in Tampa. I'll get a list of Florida Karma owners to do a p100d swap 🙂

I can’t imagine there is enough Karma business anywhere to justify opening a dedicated shop in a fixed location, but setting up a visiting Karma expert program where Karma owners can take their cars to an existing shop by appointment is a great idea for cities without Karma authorized repair facilities. @FiskerPhilly may even branch out world-wide. There is at least one owner in Dubai who would probably pay top Dinar for a visit form Joe.

If this has HarleyGuy’s blessing (as it sounds to, given the first line of the OP), then it certainly has mine!

As someone who shipped a car half way across the country to have you do the RDM work, it sounds wonderful.
