    I'm in love! :)

    I can't wait to take it on our 3k mile road trip to Maine.

    So freaking comfortable. I think I am most impressed by the handling as I pushed it a little thru some on/off ramps today. I had to keep telling myself, it does weigh 5700#. Acceleration is very adequate from the 90D, also not bad at all from 70-90.

    We did an Auto Park today at Tesla of Marietta, GA.



    My assistant and I gave "Pineapple" a paint polishing yesterday along with a debadge. Today we dropped her off with Derek Johnson of Atlanta Protective Films for her full Xpel exterior wrap. We will go with Suntek on the seat backs and door kick panels. Josh will be doing some tint and I'm still thinking about Clearplex for the windshield.

    I almost got the titanium but I was having trouble with the color shift. I've seen one around town and it seems more grey like the top pic of the before and after debadging. When I test drove one it seemed darker. Never like in design studio though. I toggled between white, titanium and MC (Midlife Crisis?) red up til the last day.

    Our S85 was MCR, we actually tried to change from Titanium to MCR while in preproduction but it was too late (without a reorder and losing $5k deposit) Ti is growing on me w/ the quickness.

    What are your thoughts on the figured ash interior? I was in love until I found out it wasn't glossy.

    As for the parking, did it not look like there was enough space to make the back-in on the first try had the X taken a sharper angle?

    That was the biggest shock of my delivery experience. I really wanted and thought it was glossy but how I was shocked!

    I am getting used to it now. Not sure if I would switch. My best recommendation would be to see the options in cars before you commit. Even a Model S would suffice for some of the choices.

    Love the non-glossy finish of the figured ash and matte obeche, my car having the latter. They don't show fingerprints and smudges the way the glossy finishes do.
