I am about to order a model s, but I can’t decide whether to go for the s85 or the s85p. Both models I will have fully equipped with any of the possible options given.
Because there is a significant difference in pricing I am interested in your opinion which model to choose.

Thereby, if I will decide to buy the s85p, will the “Performance Plus Package” actually have an added value? Have any of your bloggers driven both models and noticed any differences?

Finally, If there are any Dutch bloggers reading this, who bought/ordered a model s, could you please inform me which supplier you have chosen to install a charging station at your home? There are so many options to choose from. I live in an apartment building having a parking spot in the basement garage. I am aware of the fact Tesla providing charging stations yet I am looking at the sustainable aspect of having other neighbors using the station as well.

I look forward hearing your advice!

Thank you

Kind regards,

I am amazed by the number of reactions you all have given me! Thanks!

I finally made up my mind! I choose the pearl white P85 without the Performance Plus Package. I did add a panoramic roof, tech package, sound studio package, parcel shelf, twin chargers, 21” grey wheels, extra decor lighting, security package and park distance control.

I am an aggressive driver, so I hope I won’t regret the 21” wheels! I won’t be liking changing the tires every 6000 miles. But then a girl like me wants something eye-catching :)

I am crossing my fingers the car will be delivered within the year 2013, because here in Holland that will give me tax benefits!

Best of luck with P85+ if that's the direction you choose.
I'm sure you'll be happy but just realize there are many sedans on the road faster.

Coming from a BMW M3, I've chosen the P85+

The standard 85 will not disappoint. If you like power go for the performance.

I also gave up the look of 21 inch wheels to get the better ride and road hazard ability of the 19's

In my world the women in my life use the wheels as curb feelers. Have polished out gouges in low profile rims to often to keep doing it just for the look.
