    Well I first walked into the Tesla store in Austin Aug 19[SUP]th[/SUP], and signed up for test drive on Aug 30[SUP]th[/SUP]. Order the car on Aug 30[SUP]th[/SUP], and Sept 1[SUP]st[/SUP] confirmed and upgraded to P85+ from P. She arrived early this morning in Austin, and I just picked her up this afternoon. Couple of minor hiccups, but all was well in the end. There are some swirl marks in paint, but we can get that handled later this week.

    Drove it straight home so I could get pics posted, so haven't really driven much yet--going to let rush hour traffic die down. TuneIn Radio is wayyyy cool though!

    Will have more on going thoughts on the car, ride, any issues, I will post in the blog section here, so new buyers can see details, photos, interior, charging, etc.

    Thank you all for the answers and putting up with my sometimes looking for the wrong in the car, vs the right. It’s okay now, and I’m mentally ‘at peace’, since it’s finally in my hands. 800+ posts in a month—think maybe I was a little obsessed.

    Don’t want to post too many pics, but here are a few for those wanting to see P85+ in Black/Black. :love: Window tinting tomorrow.

    I was thinking the same thing. But with temp control from the Tesla app, he can turn on the AC a few minutes early.

    Last 12 cars have been blk/blk in Texas. It's really not a big deal at all--put good ceramic tint on and you're set. AC works great in S I noticed as well. Pano, no heat issue.

    Thanks for the kudos guys--loving this car!

    Congrats Texex91!!! Could you share which version of 5.0 software you recieved? .104? Someone on the 5.0 thread said .104 had iTunes Radio feature. Were they confused with TuneIn or is this a software addition you can confirm?

    Thanks guys! Waiting for traffic to cool down, and hit the road!

    As for version 5.0 1.35.106

    Will check GPS later when I take her out. SC did say a lot of the new ones lately have issues. SW will be fix, but don't know when.

    Great looking car. A little over 3 weeks from order to delivery! What, if any, difficulties result did you endure as a result of Texas' franchising laws?

    Really not a big deal. Little paperwork FedEx'd to/from Tesla, great delivery team here in Austin, and just have to go register it and pay taxes at County Tax office. Not as simple as a dealer, but really nothing hard either.

    One more:

    GPS seems fine so far...
