    Good morning all,

    Inspired by earlier posts - I have ordered a 90D for March 16 delivery, all being well. I'm based in Manchester, England, my lease on BMW 730 ends then. In UK, we have a growing coverage of superchargers, plus Tesla has an agreement now with a big provider Ecotricity [which must have been covered elsewhere on this forum].

    I felt the 90 gave me the security of more range, plus four wheel drive for winter conditions and performance. I don't feel I need the extra power in the P90D. I also have a preference for 19" wheels, again comfort over appearance.

    Today was browsing ideas for a centre console.

    I have been reading the forum for some time, thanks for all the info you share.

    I will post if I have anything new to share here.

    Regards,

    Tony

    Tony,

    Congrats on your order! I love my S90D!

    I have and am a big fan of this center console: EVannex - Tesla Model S Center Console Insert (CCI)

    I wasn't thrilled with the Tesla center console accessory I saw at a service center. The piano black trim and leather didn't match my car and frankly it seemed a bit flimsy.

    Good luck!

    Congrats Tony! But the question is did you get it in Man United Red or Man City Blue??? ;)

    Thats the car I ordered! Last week but I went for the P90D with 19"
    I have only test drived one P85 before for 10miutes, and after that I rented a 70D for a weekend, when I was hooked!

    Wow, from a 730 to a 90D. I'm really looking forward to the smile report after the first week of ownership.
    Congratulations.

    Hi

    I am a United fan. I live and grew up around 4 miles from Old Trafford. I'm 59 now and I am lucky my Dad first took me to see United home to Liverpool in October 1962!

    My Dad still watches on TV and is 86!

    United not so good today, but I enjoyed the Rugby World Cup final on TV. Last 20 minutes were exciting.

    Anyway, I have ordered plain white with pano roof, but I have learnt about dipping and it interests me. There is a paint shop near me that does this. Might turn it purple for next winter :wink:

    I'm still looking for the forum rules, or how to ask the mods - how many posts to get a signature, and can we post an ad on Panjo, then promote the ad on the forum?

    All the best epicsurf, are you a soccer fan?

    Regards,

    Tony

    Yes sir, United fan as well. Haven't made it to Old Tafford yet but hope to. For now I get my live soccer fix watching LA Galaxy here in Los Angeles.

    Congrats again on the purchase. Hope to have mine delivered in the next couple weeks!
