I was given a delivery window of Apr 1 - Apr 15 for 60, std suspension, seq 10760

When did you order the 60? I placed paperwork Dec 2012 and they still havent told me delivery. Im waiting on 60KWH STandard. I was told April then May/June now they dont even really know. No VIN for me yet.

I pick up my S85 tomorrow at the factory. It has standard suspension.

There are some on TMC reporting they have their MS's w/standard suspension.

Not sure what gives, I reserved in 12/2011 (seq 6492), finalized in very early January, and don't have a delivery window yet. Got the "May/June" general timeframe from the delivery specialist last week.

@crttnarayan when did you reserve? I put my deposit down in January 2011 for a standard 60w and haven't gotten a delivery window yet. Calls to TM say I should be one of the first 60s, but I'm still waiting. And wondering what value there was to put down a deposit so far in advance.

I just got my VIN yesterday for a 60 with standard suspension to be delivered late April. Finally closing in on the end of an over 2 year wait. Put down my deposit February 2011.

crttnarayan | March 29, 2013

I finalized in mid December. Called TM 5 days ago and he told me I am still on target for delivery mid April.. No delivery button though. He also told me if I did not get the button over the weekend I should call again on Monday.

Anybody know who makes the air suspension.

Nicu.Mihalache | March 30, 2013

Picked up my 85 w/ standard suspension, tech, 19', pan roof on Tuesday - Wow! It's amazing.
I test drove the air suspension 3x before the delivery of my car and I honestly can't tell the difference.
Drive and handles like a dream... no regrets on my decision.

Possibly standard suspension is even better for handling than air suspension.

Been driving my standard suspension for a week and it's great. And I rode with a friend who has a P85 and he couldn't tell the difference.

Brian H | March 30, 2013

But can you adjust the height? Does it lower at highway speeds?

generubin | April 8, 2013

Question is, does the standard suspension use coils? I'm assuming it is a coil-over shock set up that uses the same control arms as the air?

Has anyone with the standard suspension looked behind the wheels, are there coils back there?

generubin | April 9, 2013

Well, I'll answer my own question. My Model S arrived today. The suspension is coils over Bilstein shocks. I have 19" wheels. I have about 2 hours behind the wheel of a 21", air suspension Model S. I don;t know if it is the 19" wheels or the coil springs but I much prefer this ride fir comfort and it still stays flat in hard coernering.

I mostly got air suspension so I could navigate steep driveways, including mine and two places I visit frequently. Well, that plus getting my car 3 months earlier...
