    Model Y will be around 10k less but they are in the same ballpark cost wise. Which would you go with and why.

    P100DL. Looks wayyyyy better, faster, much more contoured seats, air suspension (so higher clearance than the Y when in 'Very High'), better interior IMO. If you can swing it buy a Raven Performance. It's such a night and day difference between the Ravens and the pre-raven cars. If not, at least make sure you get MCU2 (built after mid-2018).

    Model Y, because:
    1) it is new.
    2) I rarely put the electron pedal to the metal.
    3) Elon hasn't told us everything good about Model Y.
    4) Model Y has faster charging
    5) Easier to get in and out of Model Y.
    6) Model Y is more energy efficient

    i got a charger installed. Was going to buy my friends 2015 P90DL but then I thought it was just so dated. The price point on a 2018 performance is too high for me. I could swing a 2016 p100d but with the way tech is advancing so fast my plan is to keep waiting. If they unveil plaid I imagine raven cars will depreciate more. I want to jump in but I don’t take a 65k plus purchase on a depreciating toy/luxury item lightly... I think model Y performance is a good value but I do want air suspension. I’m just gonna hold fast for now and see if/when plaid is released and how it affects values

    I would go Model Y. It will probably hold its value very well especially at the beginning; not to mention the latest tech. In general, I wouldn't ask this question in Model S specific forum...you'll get colored opinions.
