    Can't decide between Model S or Audi S6

    There are some people who have had to replace their windshields three times. Do you not think the leather wear is a real issue? I actually dont like the audi but what these are issues that were not even mentiomned in the threads

    Can't decide between Model S or Audi S6

    Thank you for the candor regarding the range. Any insight on the strength of the company, future resale of the vehicle four or five years down the road?

    I have range anxiety turning into range fear

    All the reading I have done makes me feel that the 300 miles of range should really be 200 miles (even less...177 according to some posts) . At this point I would not be able to make the 220 mile trip to Orlando or Key West without some great anxiety. I, like most people, enjoy driving faster...

    Installing "high performance drive inverter" in the future on a 85 non perf?

    Has anyone heard or is aware of this possibilty in the future. Cost of doing so? I'm nearing my decision and it would seem to be a better option to purchase the 85 kw and attempt to make it go faster in the future. Is that an option?

    ?? Tuning the 85KW battery into a perf 85kw?

    Have any owners looked into the cost/possibility of doing this in the future. It may save money to buy a standard 85kW and tune it up at a later date.

    Battery: Will it be upgradeable in the future?

    Dumb Question? Will there be an option in the future to replace an existing battery with a higher charge battery? I have heard of 120KW in the future. What kind of implications does that have? Will you be able to upgrade a larger battery into your existing car? Which car, i.e. 60Kw 85KW...

    Help Interior Im debating between the perf and the 85 kw. Does anyone know if they would do the perf interior with Napa Leather and no the performance interior? I'm not a big fan of the pipping and the sections of the front seats that are not leather of the perf. Any advice/insight would be...

    Requests for configuration help.

    Thanks for all of the insight. Im getting somewhere. It seems that off the line....all three models are similar. 60, 80, and perf. I think the difference will come in after the first 30 MPH. I feel like thats when the perf will crush the 60. In my mind it seems like the value is in the...

    I'm in the same boat as you Alpha. I have an S5 so I like the speed. Really dont try and smoke the other cars, but It is nice. Did you test drive the 65KW?

    Actually the 650 i gran coupe seems more like the perf to me. I would think that 65 K for 60kw is a better value giving 5.9 sec. The 85kw is 5.6 but costs 10k more, for an additonal 3 sec advantage may not be worth it.

    Requests for configuration help.

    Thanks Doug and Alpha. I presently own an Audi S5 and do enjoy going 0 to 60 quickly. Maybe I meant to "justify" the price difference. Its a huge price dif for the 4.4 seconds. Not being able to test drive the 60 Kw makes it tough. Also difficult is that fact that many say that in reality...

    I have to configure my car and need some help from owners. I like to be able to accelerate quickly. For that reason I am considering the P. I will likely only drive to work and back (10 miles). Supercharging is not as important because I feel that this will not happen in my area (Miami/Ft...
