okay I've got time to sit down finally on my laptop. I did not get to go on a drive this time, but in about 3-4 weeks i will be able to go on a drive with it. Ill just list a bunch of things i noticed, nothin in order just what comes to my mind.
overall the car is super nice.
The look is perfect for its size
the screen is PERFECT, the size and distance the screen is from the driver and passenger is perfect. I was able to fully reach and control all aspects of the screen while my arm was sitting comfortable and naturally on the arm rest.
The screen and UI was extremely responsive, i couldn't believe how fast things were loading and zooming in and out of maps and in and out of menus.
This car i saw didn't have internet browser, but from what I'm told the cars in the hands of customers has internet browser.
i personally think the screen is in perfect view for driver and passenger.
The Vents are remarkable, this is the one and only feature i want on my Model X.
The vents blow air all throughout, it felt amazing and just very well done. controlled through screen but it was just easier to leave everything on auto.
The rear vents were okay, not that great, similar to model s.
The driver seat is very comfortable along with the passenger seat, yes lumbar support is the same as it is for the S and X.
The car definitely is nice, but after seeing everything it made me happy i have my X. It definitely feels cheaper and just not up to the standards of the S and X but thats understandable and it is how it must be. For such a low price it's a must.
The charge port door is SUPER flimsy and doesn't seem like it'll last long. the reasoning for the extra space in that area is to accommodate the European standards.
The rear windshield is incredible, really felt amazing being back there. tint level was just fine like the model x front windshield.
The trunk has tons of space including the hidden storage.
The Frunk is a bigger front than i imagined, but isn't as deep. I say you can fit 2-3 backpacks in there.
Rims are super nice the 19 inch ones.
Door handles from outside take getting used to.
The opening mechanism from inside to open the door is very convenient and works great.
Idk what I've missed but ill go back and read some questions that might jog my memory or if i remember something ill post it again.

EDIT:
the steering wheel feels normal, the middle part feels and looks pretty cheap, wasn't a fan of the bubbly look.
Yes there is a button externally to open the trunk like a normal car.
Leg room was just fine sitting in front and in the back, definitely wouldn't want to be the passenger in the back middle though.

This one will piss some people off but i have found out the official sizes of the batteries for both cars, but i probably shouldn't say until they are publicly released if they ever are. Sorry guys.
Also have a lot of pictures that i won't be able to share, again very sorry. The one in a month that ill be able to drive in I'm pretty sure i can share pics of that one and videos.
