    Today is my 33rd birthday, and Tesla was kind enough to deliver my beautiful car to me at 11am this morning. Weighing in at 4647 lb and 4 oz, she is healthy, but has yet to be named.

    P90D, midnight silver, pano, 21" grey turbines, black next-gen seats, CF décor and spoiler, black alcantara headliner, red calipers, autopilot, SAS, UHFS, and premium interior

    Horrible lighting. Didn't realize it until I looked at it on my laptop.

    I've seen some questions about what the range will be. This was a range charge that I let sit to balance batteries. 273 miles

    I've spent some time driving a P85D and when I first launched in this I was a bit disappointed. It didn't feel any more significant than insane mode. I did notice some additional pull, but nothing mind blowing. I haven't had a chance to really play around with it yet, but I did find this

    When the battery is ready it will say "Ready", which when I first found it was ready immediately. The "Preparing..." was when I was charging again tonight so the battery needs to warm up a bit first. My initial test with this enabled I did feel it more, but it wasn't the best test with luggage and people in the car. I'll test it and try to get a video of at least the dash during day time.

    Here's a 90% charge.

    To compare with a P85D after balancing the batteries

    254 vs 273 @ 100%
    228 vs 246 @ 90%

    So 18-19 extra miles

    The real congrats is being your age and being able to afford a Tesla!

    @Pete90D. Thanks for info on battery preparation; something new :) Any impressions on ride quality, noise levels, high speed passing power, supercharging speed?

    I tried to post another shot of the charge at 90%, but it's waiting for mod approval

    A P85D vs P90D, both with balanced batteries is

    254 vs 273 @ 100%
    228 vs 246 @ 90%

    So 18-19 extra miles

    Ride quality and noise level is roughly the same from what I remember.

    Passing power seems to be a bit stronger, but I haven't tested it with the max power option turned on. There were a couple times it felt kind of weak, but still faster than a lot of cars.

    The applique curves slightly different and the letters stand out more.

    I don't think I remember the charger port door automatically opening when I pulled up to a supercharger, but unless I did something without realizing it like the keyfob being pressed while in my pocket, the door opened automatically.

    :cool:When you get a chance let us know what the supercharging curve looks like and what the actual energy consumed is when going from 100% to 0% charge.

    And huge thanks for posting all the info!

    Those photos you posted about "Max battery power" are very interesting. I believe that is something new.

    Driving from Mountain View to San Francisco, around the city, back down, to the airport, and back to Mountain View... 100% down to 28%

    138.7mi
    53.2 kWh
    383 Wh/mi

    Remote S says I added 52.48 kWh to get back to 90%

    So I'm guessing Max Battery Power is similar to the Roadster's Performance Mode in that it allows the battery to operate at a higher temperature? Awesome car by the way. And happy birthday! :smile:

    I'm going to go try to capture something on the GoPro... haven't tried that at night so we'll see what I can capture.

    I agree. The new setting is very interesting. I started a new topic. Pete I hope you don't mind me reusing those photos about that new setting.
