Hey guys and gals - I have felt the draw of the Tesla for a number of years. When the Model S first came out I got 90% through the deposit process before I chickened out. But I've been obsessed from afar since they arrived. I feel the major element with that draw is my love of technology. I'm a 39 year old male who grew up with PC Jrs., Atari, Ninetendo, Commodore 64s and the like. I love tech - it's my career, it's my hobby, etc. I also love cars. In the last 12 years, I've bought 32 cars - either f. I tend to slant German - more than half of the 32 were German - mostly Audis, VWs, BMWs and Porsches. in nearly every modern Audi or BMW I've owned, I've been obsessed with upgrading some element of the technology. Buy a BMW 6-series without Bluetooth - no problem, I'll add it myself. I really enjoy that type of thing. That said, and for all the cars I've owned, I'm not overly mechanically inclined. I've changed a valve cover gasket on a BMW before, but I didn't enjoy it and I didn't have much satisfaction when I was done. With all that pretext, I'll get to my point. For the last month or so I've been actively seeking out a pre-owned Model S. I've never driven a Tesla - I've seen three total in person - sat in one in a mall once. That's it. Yet I've watched 100s of YouTube videos about every aspect of the car - ownership, delivery, technology, reviews, etc. I'm drawn in with each one. I've spent countless hours on this forum lurking through all the conversations between owners. I'm riveted. I'm currently looking in the 65k-75k range, which makes an S85 within reach and a P85 less so. So given all that, I'd absolutely love to hear some opinions from people on this forum. Is there anyone out there like me who was a frequent driver of performance cars from other brands that made the jump to Tesla essentially sight-unseen? What are your thoughts - what do you love - what do you miss (if anything) - what would you do differently. What advice would you give a guy like me? I'm sure I'll get a lot of "drive it first". I respect that. While I tend to agree, I never drove a 911 TT before I bought one and loved the surprise and delight I felt when I first got it. Anyway - I'd love as many opinions as possible. This hunt feels different and because it's the first electric I've considered, I think I may just be overthinking. Also - if you're one of the lucky ones to be waiting on a D delivery and would like to give a guy a good deal on a pre-loved Model S ... PM me Thanks all.
