I received Tesla email to spec out my Model S Performance late last week but I'm having second thoughts.
When we signed up for the wait list, we were told by reps that Tesla was working on some modifications to address some items that have pretty much become standard on a $100k car. I am aware that this an all electric car, that drives like a rocket, and has phenomenal range. But we also need to consider how this car will be used.
Can you please tell me if any of these items have been an issue for you? Or is it just me?
1) Armrest and cupholders in the back seat?
-The armrest is to keep some distance between the kids and also to keep them from sliding around as I take those hard turns. :0)
2) Usable armrest and cupholders for the front seat.
-Neither my wife nor I are 6'6", so if you slide the armrest forward, you have no cupholders in the front.
3) Storage compartments between driver and passenger footwell.
-Don't see the need to let everyone that peaks into the car see what is in there.
4) Park distance control.
- I know there is a rear camera, as an option, but what about the front and rear park distance control. I would like to keep the front and rear bumpers scratch free and with the wife driving, sorry ladies, I NEED park distance tones. (As annoying as they are)
I know these do not seem like major issues but they are standard items in comparable priced cars, S class, 7 Series, Jag… I realize they have other issues, like gas, but I'm looking at daily usability.
