    I know it's late to be asking this question but I only have about 15 hours before I take delivery of my S75 tomorrow without the time to read through 1,000's of posts. Anything important that I should know at delivery? I've inquired about prepaid maintenance but have 60 days to make up my mind. While I've done a fairly extensive test drive, the controls are still intimidating. I'm almost 70 years old but still have a pretty good learning curve :) Thanks for any tips!

    I'm 60. I bought my car at 57. Have no fears, after a couple of days you'll feel right at home. In fact, after you have had your Model S a few months, it is when you try to drive an ICE vehicle that you will freak out. The Model S is very simple to use vs. any other car. Congrats on your purchase, be glad you have the finest car ever made.

    I completely agree! The driving experience is like no other. Especially if you're a quick learner. Best of luck and enjoy your ride!!

    Drove local roads back to my home from the delivery center today. Yes, very intuitive. The delivery specialist saw that I had an iPhone and said if I'm familiar with the iPhone interface I would have no problem with the numerous center console screens.

    When I returned home, I could not figure out how to turn off the engine (sorry I'm still thinking ICE) - LOL! So here I am sitting in the car, in my driveway, for five minutes Googling how to turn off the car! LOL again! I finally came across a relevant page that essentially said "open the door and exit the car stupid!" Everything turned off and the car locked itself down. Amazing!
