    Well, I may have more money than brains, but I am going to get a 90D (AWD) and sell my December 2014 Model S. 17,250 miles on it.

    Moving to Arizona snow country has a lot to do with it, even though getting snow tires on the 85 would help a lot by itself.

    The AWD option was became available days after I ordered the 85 back in September 2014, but I was new to Tesla, and worried that AWD cars would have mechanical problems, etc. I could have changed the order right then, but I chickened out.

    Bad decision, and I have regretted it ever since.

    Mid-March delivery, and the $1200 referral credit exactly offsets the $1200 destination and doc fee charge.

    I was considering similar from a 12/2014 P85D to a P90DL inventory vehicle, but the numbers were a bit high for my taste (~$30k + tax on that amouont). So I'm sticking with the Lud upgrade instead.

    I upgraded my 3/14 build this past December to a 90d, I don't regret doing so at all
