So at least in Austin, getting a loaner is much easier lately. That said, in the last month I've gotten a P85 and a P85+ loaner, and here is the issue: My 60 feels much less impressive after driving the P85, and downright wimpy after the P85+. Don't get me wrong, I still love my 60, but how you people with the P85+ don't make random detours to windy stretches of road is a mystery to me. By the time I got done showing my wife, kids, and even my mom and my neighbor's kids the accleration and handling on the P85+, there was a wide range of squeals of delight, screams of terror, and dropped jaws. I think this confirms Elon Musk's concept of making service as painless as possible is a good one.
They even dropped my car off when I was done, which was indeed disappointing, because I wanted to drive the loaner more! Hmmm...does that mean my thread title is misleading? :-)
