Twice a Model S 90D owner but new to this forum

    Hello world!

    For a quick summary, I love cars; but more importantly, I also have a decent enough physics background to know that ICEs are a waste of energy for transportation, and my first attempt at owning an EV, back in 1996, ended up in a nono: I didn't want to hire the batteries (this was a Peugeot 106 electric).

    I have known about Tesla since 2014; but what I wanted was to replace my main car with an EV, and the SC network in France was too sparse. Also, I wanted the facelifted version.

    So, when I was contacted by Tesla for a CPO facelift 90D (which is what I wanted), and knowing about the SC network in France at the time which was more than adequate, I rushed to get it, and I did. That was in September 2016. And when AP2 came out, I placed another order, and traded the one I already had for the new one. 37000 km on the old one, and now 9600 km on the new one.

    I drive a lot.

    This may be commonplace in this forum, but I'd never trade this car for another one. Part of it is for the car itself, but a huge part of it is also the SC network.

    Since then, I'm a happy camper. But since I'm a guy who likes technical stuff, this forum seems to me the best place to learn more and make my Tesla yield more as well.

    Owning an EV in 1996 puts you in the top 0.01% of forward thinking consumers. I look forward to reading your opinions.
