We have had our standard 85 Model S for 8 months now. I never did test drive the P85 before purchasing for fear that I might get sucked into the much more expensive model. No plus option at the time. I now have a P85+ loaner while I have a few minor issues addressed, and it definitely is like those first drives in my Model S all over again.
The Performance option is noticeably quicker than my standard. The Plus option is definitely noticeably more "sporty" on turns and general steering feel, also like the sport seating and Alcantara headliner.
All of it is nice and would like to have the, but. I am happy and still grinning on my daily commute in my S85. No regrets and now I no longer have to wonder if I made the right decision.
Options are great. And actually after this test drive, the breakout options in the new pricing seems worth it to get some of the options you want while leaving others behind.
