    question for those who have owned either a P85+ or a pre-April 2015 P85D (i.e. has the + suspension), and now have a P90D or P100D.....

    how big of a drop off in driving quality/fun is it?

    is it possible to enjoy a "regular suspension" Model S after living with the Performance Plus suspension for so long?

    i'm thinking of getting a P100D but i drove an 85D loaner about a year ago and it was terrible!!! lifeless, disconnected steering. even in "comfort" mode it was ponderous and slow. i was so put off. whereas my P85D+ was light on its feet, point and shoot, nimble, with razor sharp steering and reflexes.

    please tell me the new P100D has better driving feel than that loaner i got.

    I find the same point and shoot lightness in my P85+. I love it.
