I finally sent through my order for a brown 85 yesterday night, after convincing my wife that the Model S has indeed more cargo volume than our current Q7 (her initial reply was: "yes, but part of it is in the front"...).
There are still a couple of open issues. My 18 year old son won't be able to sit in the back because he is too tall; no superchargers in Italy; what is the REAL energy consumption when you drive on the motorways at 140-150 km/h (90-95 m/h, which is common here in Italy, even if the maximum speed limit is 130 km/h); a very steep price-tag compared to that of Tesla in the US and to other more "normal" cars.
But I simply couldn't wait any longer.
PS - I get a call this morning from the anti-fraud division of my credit card company, saying that someone has spent €2,000 on Friday night with my card on a web-site called Tesla. My answer "That was me" is followed by a long and uncomprehending silence.
