Thanks for the write up, its good to see a fellow NJ person in a 3.
I'm currently deciding between a CPO P85D / 85D or a 3LR. Price and range aside, do you feel like the S is still the superior car?
The P85D is an amazing car with “insane” acceleration and near-SUV levels of utility. It feels magnetized to the road.
The 3 feels superior in terms of technology and design (for now), but obviously won’t win in a drag race.
I think you have to weigh performance (S), range (3), Autopilot (3), cargo and passenger capacity (S), and the like to determine what’s superior to you. I mean they’re both excellent cars.
