Aah, Rob - the CA-AZ roads won't be the same without the BeautifulBrownBomber around! Whoever picks up this beauty will have one of the most gorgeous Model Ss in existence. Such a purty color!

Rob, will miss associating you with Hershey! Saw it recently when at @Zextraterrestrial/@Jouler's gettogether - it's gorgeous!

Good luck with the sale.

What pictures do you want? Pretty much standard Signature with everything, black interior, most people know what Obeche gloss is, but I don't have pictures of the dash.

I happily drive a hundred miles to show it off.

Curious why are you selling your Sig?

I know a lot of people will wonder. So.

I really like driving this car. But I see the benefit of many things that the newer cars have, from self closing charge port doors, to the car telling me not to pull into the car sitting there in my blind spot checking out the Tesla. I like the idea of having Pilot Assist when driving down I-5, especially when my wife tells me, "You're drifting!"

I have been told I have cancer, as some of you know. I have maybe 5 years to enjoy driving, maybe more, maybe less. Maybe Milli will be doing more of the driving, I don't know. But I wanted to upgrade, and enjoy it while I can. Which maybe is dumb.

My brother had told me he wanted my Sig, and I was happy to have it stay "in the family". And then he decided he couldn't swing it, so, since I have about got my new car finished at the factory, I sort of don't need two cars.

So, if any of you know someone who has been waiting for a good deal on a great premium sedan, let them know, OK? Thanks.

I hope you have many years driving and enjoying life in whatever car.

Totally understand and it is not dumb, enjoy driving your new car. If it makes you happy it is all good.

@roblab, good wishes are with you. Been there and survived. Although I have loved many who didn't. You are absolutely right. Make the best of life right now. Go for that P90DL!

I lost my wife of 10 years to cancer last year. My Roadster was my "eff it! Life is short!" purchase for myself after she passed.

Take every opportunity to have fun...and that goes for everyone.

How many rated miles do you show on a full charge?

Last time I checked, I was getting 245, or about 7 1/2 % degradation, which is pretty much in the expected curve. Looking at the curves, you know, the degradation drops quickly at first, then levels out to a slow ramp down, so we are in the slow ramp with this car. Problem is, in my experience, the "estimated range" varies so much depending on how you drive, and since I live 1500' above the valley floor, my curve always reflects my high usage at the end of my drive. Don't know how that affects this.

By the way, perhaps important to some, I have the original A pack, which supercharges 4 - 5 minutes slower than the B pack. So I arrive at my destination 5 minutes later. Dang.
