    So, how are all you "AWD+" owners (Boosted LR AWD) feeling about your investment and experience?

    Still loving it here, especially the P-level BOOST while rolling! :D

    I think its great, would have bought it again. Its pricy but a lot of fun :p

    I wonder if tesla will raise or lower the price in the near future though. I live in Norway so its pretty wet and icy on the roads until april, so I dont get to floor it from 0-60 mph without spinning. But when i floor it from 60+ i feel the improvement. It kicks much more now. I get the same feeling of a fast car, that I had in the beginning of owning my tesla, that slowly got "normal" after owning the car for a while.

    I have it and enjoy it. Faster = better. My personal best 0-60(1ft) so far is 3.58, best recorded on Dragy is 3.47. $2k was a tough pill to swallow, but Tesla knows they can just take our money. It really isn't fair.

    Side note: Fastest for the full performance version is 2.98, so we are still almost exactly 0.5s behind.

    The 3.47 is Magnus Mako, not me, unfortunately. There are a few people gunning for that top spot.

    One of my buddies with a 2018 AWD with a 980 rear motor, and my 2019 AWD with a 990 rear motor did some 0-60, 20-60, 40-60 test today pre-boost to see the comparison before we both do the boost upgrade. They were about the same, I had 3% higher SOC than him and ran a little bit better times, but very close.

    I’ll upload a few Dragy pictures here shortly.

    why would 980 vs 990 motor reference is important here when getting acceleration boost? Should both return the same result as Tesla promised? Sure likely 980 is binned, but still. Just curious and congrats

    It shouldn't matter, but we were curious if there was any difference.

    Can you remind me whether or not the upgrade has any effect during regular driving, or just full throttle? (or whatever they call the throttle on electric cars)

    I should NOT be readying this thread. I hate looking at the option to upgrade every time I log into my account!

    Throttle is fine but most call it an Accelerator pedal and some even say Go pedal. Just don't say Gas pedal. Not sure what "regular driving" is since I MUST be first from a red light.:D .....but regular/slower driving is not effected.

    But it's so easy. Just click the button and it's yours. You know you want it. You deserve it. You earned it. :)

    I can see significant others filing a class action lawsuit against Tesla some day for making these upgrades just way to easy purchase.

    I would say BIG effect on "all around driving". The car feels like it is many hundreds of pounds lighter and more "sure of itself". Kind of feels telepathic now as jetting from rolling position "A" to "B" feels instantaneous. Definitely an "overall driving" experience, and not just a "launch" experience. YMMV
