    So, was driving around after dinner... stopped at Office Max. Ended up picking up a desk set. No problem, Model S has more than enough room.

    Needed a few things from Home Depot. No problem. Well, went a little overboard at Home Depot. My fiance and I started agreeing on things (imagine that!) and grabbed two+ carts worth of stuff.. light fixtures, LED bulbs, etc.

    Came time to load up the Model S. Hmm.... gonna be tight. I already loaded the desk over top of the floor storage area in the trunk unfortunately, so that was inaccessible.

    Loaded some lights and bags in the frunk. Perfect.

    Huge light in the back, check!

    Finally left looking like this with all of the cargo and my fiance in the passenger seat (with a box on her lap):

    (She didn't want me putting her face on a forum, so...)

    Here is everything unloaded...

    So yeah... moral: never underestimate the cargo capacity of the Model S.

    Two people, all of that cargo...

    Awesome on the storage. Will share with my friend. She was looking at SUVs and mentioned she was worried about the space. I was telling her that the MS competes with many mini vans on storage... so just imagine what Model X will have for storage. Storage is one of her top priorities.

    On a side note, I can't find it in your sig. But all that blue lighting in the car looks great. Is that the premium lighting package? I got this and haven't seen an example of it anywhere.

    Or she's made of Legos! Cool!

    (& yes, the Model X will have insane amounts of storage !) :cool:

    OK, on a more serious note, do you have any lighting mods in your trunk?

    I want to know where she got that outfit and does she always give you the finger when you take her picture?

    She's also making a face so it's probably just in jest.

    I had no idea the Model S could hold so many pixels!

    I'm guessing neither of you are fans of Tetris... You could have bought sooo much more stuff.

    Actually, I love Tetris.

    Problem was that I had already loaded those desks in, and they're pretty heavy. Didn't want to unload them just to do the puzzle better. But yeah, definitely could have fit more if I took the time.
