    Hello Everyone or Anyone!

    A quick thank you to everyone who helped make this the place it is. You all helped get me over the decision line to order and now (happily driving) my 2018 MS.

    Looking forward to learning with everyone and helping others join the EV community.

    Enjoy the rest of your summers!

    Congrats! Welcome. It took about a week for me to really believe it was my car, and the grin really hasn't faded in two years. I seem to be putting around 20k per year on the car, about 50% more than any past car.

    What was the biggest factor in your decision? What's your favorite feature/aspect so far?

    Walter,

    Thanks for the welcome...
    I always wanted an EV, and specifically the MS.
    I have to thank VW for helping to get me over the decision, as I owned a TDI for 5 years thinking I was driving a clean green car...Well, VW bought the car back and I used that $$ to offset the purchase price (plus the $7500) to make my car a 50% "mental discount" (or justification!)
    I decided to make sure I was no longer buying petrol and wanted to be excited to get in my car to go driving...Feels like being 16 again trying to find a reason to go for a drive anywhere!
    Love the regeneration braking. I dont ever plan on buying a new set of breaks for this car. Under normal conditions, I tap the breaks around 7 mph to come to a complete stop. The overall customization of every option makes this just a ton of fun. Also dropping the hammer on a safe onramp just makes me giggle every time!

    Cheers,

    Brian

    PS. Also got the car's paint corrected and ceramic coated - looks awesome.

    Congratulations and welcome to the family! Looks like you got the same spec that we recently ordered apart from we ordered the cream interior, it really does look great and has made me more excited for when our Model S arrives!
