Long time lurker on the forum (like back in the Eberhard days)…I’m about a week into driving the Model 3. I have really enjoyed other forum member’s reviews (and they kept me going through the wait)….I thought I’d give back with my own first impression. Day 1 reservation holder Config Email 4/10 VIN received 4/12- 15,8XX Delivered 5/3/18 (NY then home to CT) White, EAP, Sport Here’s the bottom line…I was excited about so many aspects of the car (in no particular order). 1. To drive electric (environmental impact) 2. Autopilot in its current state to ease the burden of my 80+ mile round trip commute. 3. Technology and ultimately self-driving 4. Coolness factor. All of these things have either met or exceeded my high expectations. But then I realized on day 2 of ownership that I forgot to get excited about one other thing that I hadn’t even been thinking about, given all the other attributes of the car…the Model 3 is an honest to goodness, real deal, kick-ass sports sedan. The acceleration is awesome (not P90DL awesome - which I have driven), but still plenty of power to be really fun. I am also convinced they have software de-tuned 0-30…because the punch from 30-60 is even better, which makes me excited about software unlocks in the future. Handling is fantastic, right on par with competitors in the class (I have driven many of those too) – it’s a blast to throw into the corners. The initial quality and overall feel of the vehicle has been great…no squeaks, panel gaps, software issues, etc. It’s just really, really, fun to drive and everything else seems to not compare. After reading some of the negative stuff, I just wanted to say I have had no issues whatever. Also love the steering wheel…not the look necessarily, but the size/feel/thickness…very M3/sports car like. The last course of business was to protect her. For any CT folks, after searching around I decided to go to Automobilia in West Haven. These guys are awesome and did a fantastic job (PPF on the front, 9H, light tint and center console wrap). They have done a bunch in Model 3’s in CT (which was suprising to me, I thought I was one of the first). I just got her back after a long 2 days…looks awesome now perfectly detailed with the coatings.
