    My major drain problem is not vampire drain, it's demo drain from showing friends and others the acceleration in my new model 3. I guess I can live with it though, it's just so darn much fun!!

    I've had a my car a little over a month and I still charge a little more than I should to account for the added " show launch" to my friends and family. Zero complaints so far!!

    Right? It's too fun to not just drive and floor it when possible.

    I'm driving a Model S loaner right now and since I get free supercharging with it I've been driving it as aggressive as possible and it's so much fun. When I drive my Model 3 I try to see how efficient I can drive.

    I have a steadfast rule that I have to be the first off the line at every light, and at least 50 yards ahead of everyone else within 5 seconds. This is just to test battery efficiency of course.....

    @chronopc Tesla had my vehicle for about 3 weeks to fix a trunk gap after delivery. I was give an S 85 and you better believe I took advantage of the free supercharging. I was smashing it every opportunity I could!!

    They are fixing a paint smudge on my car. I don't care how long they take. :D

    The first week of driving the car I drove it pretty much like a grandma. It definitely felt like a boat compared to the 3, but once I got familiar with it, it was GOOOOOO time! Thankfully no poles were used as brakes


    Hopefully they do a good job with the paint the second time around!

    It's a small smudge on the driver door so it should be an easy fix. It's not really their 2nd attempt since they sent it to a body shop.
