Speed of getting in and out, doors and more

Speed of getting in and out, doors and more

I'm a late comer to the reservations.. 19K+..

As I watched the unveiling video, couple of questions popped in my head - sharing them here to discuss:
1. Falcon wing doors operable only through a button inside? Why Elon did not invoke the door handle? Anyone here tried that? (scenario - child forgot the backpack in the rear seat and we are 50m away from the locked car. How am I going to get that backpack out?)

2. Automatic front doors - knowing me, I would rather open it myself and get in. Also, have you noticed that demo car unintentionally opened the driver door and Elon had to close it awkwardly. Anyone experienced this in person?

3. Turning radius - does anyone have this data?

Thanks.

Suggest with your reservation number that you will have plenty of time to view and even test drive car before needing to configure. Patience is s virtue.
