    Hello all. This is my first post on TMC. I've been in a full size Range Rover for the past 10 years (3 separate vehicles). I passed on the MS years back inasmuch as, at 6'2" 215 lbs with 2 kids, it was not the best 'fit' for my situation. But I was definitely hooked at that time (I had even procured estimates from my electrician for the wall charger in my garage), and the Tesla bug never left my body.

    I thought I shook the bug until one year ago, when a father of my son's friend rolled up in his MS one night for dinner at our house. He loved it (and still does) so you can imagine what we talked about all night. However, I was only one year into my latest vehicle and the timing was off. Plus, the Wife Acceptance Factor at the time played a role as well.

    Three weeks ago, at dinner with other friends, the topic of cars comes up because one of the guys is in the market, and he says he is looking at a Tesla. BAM - the bug immediately hits me again and my eyes light up. I can't get it out of my head for a week. So I make the decision to go see the MX, figuring the MX may be a better 'fit'.

    What is that saying thrown around here... "don't test drive it until you're ready to buy it"? Well, it's true. And that launched 30+ hours of due diligence including, but not limited to, procuring trade-in values, pricing options, picking colors, browsing this forum about known issues and loved issues and xpel and dash-cams and wheel sizes and P vs. not P and everything else in between. After all that, I talked to my CPA to learn the full extent of the tax benefits to my situation. Another huge check mark. I was almost there....... But still one final unanswered question remained: What about the WAF? So I signed up for the 24 hour test drive and she LOVED it. And that folks was the final straw.

    Today I placed my order today on a MX100D, Midnight Silver Metallic, 20" Sonic Carbon Wheels, Black interior with ash wood, Five Seat, Enhanced Autopilot, and Premium Upgrade Package. Looking forward to the December (or sooner!) delivery.

    I am still in disbelief that there is a "Thank you for your order" e-mail in my inbox. I am very excited to join the party, and I am looking forward to being an active participant on the forum.

    I am trying so hard to be patient and looking at this pic just made me relapse. I still have 2 days to wait until my order locks in. Did talk to the electrician today. Your car is beautiful.
