    Hi All,

    I've tried to search for answers but seems not much about Model S...

    I ordered my Model S in Hong Kong so no test drive for us yet. Instead I took the Roadster out for a quick spin. Very impressive, but tiny squeaks and rattles here and there annoys me... may be its the test car...however some said the Roadster dash does rattle a bit due to the floating design. :scared:

    I'm not sure if Model S would have the similar issue. Is the interior fittings and craftsmanship up to a $100k car standard?

    Thanks for sharing!!!

    The Roadster has those because it's built by Lotus (squeaks and rattles are a Lotus hallmark). The Model S had zero squeaks or rattles during my test drive.

    Interior seemed very solid during my test drive. Magazine reviews seem to be giving the interior high marks in this area as well.
