  3. No. Tesla should put regular door so customers can choose between Model X and Y. It save cost too!

  6. Yes. I think FWD will be appealing to customer and help spread the words about the Tesla brand

    You are right - after one hand slam, I was much more careful. "Fool me once- shame on me..." I am trainable. The door closed when I stepped on the brake pedal, not knowing that would be the closer trigger. Learning curve.
    As I get older and more feeble - reaching out to grab the door handle to close gets more awkward. Its nice to know that there are solutions to get the care to self-close. Do I have to buy a new model S to get the closer- or is there a retrofit option?. Can a refresh S get a few parts bolted on?

    Worse it has hollow handles that feel like a cheap plastic toy, they could have at least made them feel better not like they are going to break off in your hand. The seemed to use the cheapest low grade finish materials in the 3 they could buy.
