[mod note: Post moved from World Map of Model S Reservation Holders I had an amazing day Friday (yesterday). Visited the NYC and White Plains stores, spoke with two specialists in Palo Alto/Freemont. Spoke with six specialists in all, two of whom knew less about the car than me, four who were very helpful. Couple of thoughts, which I thought might be helpful to share: Battery degradation will add up in 3-4 years, but not severe. Spoke with a specialist in Freemont who noted his Roadster range had lessened about 20 miles over just about 4 years. Our vacation place is 115 miles; so I am going 60kWh and saving a bit for my 2017, 600mile range replacement battery - Ha! The 60kWh battery will have supercharge hardware included (that is clear) BUT it appears that Tesla is debating about whether to ENABLE the hardware (by including the necessary software) without an additional fee. Seems punitive and I noted this. It appears there will be a fee for 60kWh battery to be supercharge ENABLED. Glad the Hardware will be included though. On charging, I plan to include twin chargers and add the HPWC at home later. There are some public charging stations that are well above 40Amps and the twin charger will significantly speed up travel time when this higher amperage is available. That said, it appears it will be easy to add twin chargers later, so not critical at all. Air suspension a must for this car, and I also don't want to wait! Speakers upgrade an excellent value and a must (Mark Knopfler never sounded so good). Tech package is annoying as much should be included (at very least the proximity key, I mean Kia and Hundai have that!), but the satellite Nav with 7 years updates and the Xenon headlamps make up most of the value there. I no longer care about the center console. Just hit me suddenly that it will work out well, however it arrives. Neither NYC nor White Plains had anything near the final concepts being bounced around. I was pretty thrilled to see we can modify the air suspension, brake regen, and electric assist on the rack and pinion steering, all from the touch screen. Very nice touch. The touch screen at White Plains was significantly more advanced than that at NYC/25th Street, and Jeff the White Plains manager is just awesome. 19 inch tires are the practical solution for me, in New England. Maybe I'll add 21 inch rims some day for a nice Spring drive... The roof Pano - I think it is a great touch - I use my sunroof now every time I drive except during rain or heavy snow, and I never pull the shade over it when closed...I am told it will have a pull-shade "like the Audi" by specialists. Some have noted the Pano roof may add head room in the rear. I have certainly noticed rear headroom tapers quickly toward the rear side and corners. No secret that Tesla is working to whittle a few extra millimeters while revamping the (cheap, easily broken) rear lighting. Of note, in both showrooms the front visors had been removed - broken lights? If the Pano roof adds headroom, it must do it by changing the overall roof construction, as the Pano roof does not reach the rear at all - it stops well before the rear headroom area. Color: Black or Green. Back and forth. Love the green - is a chameleon as others have noted. Have seen too much Blue in Roadsters, but it is gorgeous, the Brown is unusual but original, the deeper gray looks sweet with the chrome. Never had a black car and it is an easy-out as it will look "wicked good" and, heck, Elon chose black... Just not sure. Beige leather, and either matte or gloss Obiche. Lacewood is very nice in person. Carbon fiber a bit digital/cool for me, but may fit the car best is in some ways. Like the texture of the matte Obiche, like the depth and color of the gloss Obiche in ambient daylight (brought the samples outside). Is the gloss too Buick, or will it look nicely refined? I don't really care about finger prints, but they will happen on gloss. No rear seats needed as kids are older, or getting older fast. No need for privacy cover in back as I can toss valuables in the Frunk. Thoughts? Delivery party for Boston-area enthusiasts a must option as well...!
