Here are some things to expect at first: It's a very low car. That makes you more alert when you realize you are a silent mouse in a world of lumbering elephants. You will drive very carefully until you settle in. Give it a few weeks. The headlights don't reach very far. About half the reach of a taller SUV but it's ironic because on dark twisty roads you want to drive twice as fast. Yoga lessons are nearly required for ingress / egress with the top on. You will look as graceful as a wounded pelican getting in and out for awhile. You have to relearn all over again to be a passenger. It's quiet. If the radio worked you would hear it much better. The good news that without a radio, you can bathe in the world's coolest sound of a jet turbine. Enjoy it! On a quiet road every single rock that flys up to hit the car resonates loudly and sometimes when going though a dirt pile it sounds like the car is being pelted by a rock shooting machine gun. Very disconserting. It's unusual. People will invade your space. Don't think you can get away with going out without makeup or unkempt in any way. Other drivers will be looking at the car and by extension they will want to talk with you. Some will judge. You might have to plan a bit of extra time on trips to the mall or store. It's at 50 percent chance someone will approach you with questions. Once you say it's electric then prepare to stay another 15 minutes. Don't have anything incriminating in the trunk and carry some Tesla brochures to hand out. When giving rides you can actually "feel" moment by moment the realizations that your passengers have that this is a special car. It's when they expect the shifts. And that realization builds with the lack of each expected micro-slowing. Once you are used to it, it plays out in slow motion. A joy to "watch" as a Tesla grin is born. Misc. At first there is a "car key shuffle". When about to leave and stand at the back of the Roadster to close the trunk you will want to use your right hand to push and latch the right side and then your left hand for the other side. All the while you are holding your keys. You don't want to scratch the paint so where do they go? The mouth becomes a quick answer. Similar when getting into the car. Where do the keys go when you need both hands and feet to enter in spider-assist-mode so the keys are thrown in first. Getting out you may end up reaching around and putting them on the roof. The stick and center column are flimsy. Fisher Price would be proud of the shift feel. Get used to it or maybe you can upgrade. Drivers leg may get sore (black and blue) where it pushes against the tight fit center column especially if you are used to Italian style splay leg seating. After a while you will build up calluses or learn to float your leg away from center. You might be surprised to find that in mountain driving, the combination of lock to lock and a relatively wide 32' turn radius that your hands will be all over the steering wheel sometimes accidently honking the horn for no good reason. Takes a while to discern the various pump and fan sounds. When charging be sure that the slide switch is forward. Just because the car is making a lot of cooling (cooing?) noises it does not mean it is charging. More to come.
