Heres what would make Model S perfect in order of importance in my opinion:
1.Better interior: I was thinking about leasing the 85D but then I thought your paying mostly for the technology. The cars in similar range of 100K have a much better interior. If the seats were better and the car was a little more luxurious I would have got it. Although I really like the interior design thumps up on that!
2.Cooled seats: Yes I am aware that you can heat and cool the car through the app. Cars that are half the price have cooled seats. I live in a place were cooled seats are a nice feature to have. For what you pay, there should be cooled seats.
3.Being able to play my old iPod through a usb port: I have thousands of dollars worth of songs on my iPod but yet I would have to look down and scroll with a tiny wheel to change a song. Thats not safe! I thought the Model S was supposed to be the safest car on the road. Its a computer on wheels and can't play my old iPod that I could do in 10 year old cars.
4.Own climate controls for the back: This isn't a big deal but similar cars have a 4 zone climate control and your rear passenger can control it. I don't want my kids while I'm driving asking me to heat their seats when in other cars they don't need to ask, they just hit a button.
5.Stop updates on no notice: I would hate to be the person with a P85+ and the P85D come out. Tesla changes to much to fast in my opinion. I was reading something were a guy just received his 60kwh Model S and he goes to lunch at noon and a way better deal comes out for a new car called the 70D.
I bet everyone is going to thinking I'm crazy but when I lease a 100K car I don't want to have to wish that the car has certain features. I decided to lease the Audi A7 because it didn't drive as nice but the interior was enough to give up the 85D. If Tesla makes improvements to their line up there should be no reason why after my lease is up I couldn't be in a P85D. The Model S of right now just wasn't the right choice for me. For most people it will be. It's not a bad car its just I think for what you pay, there should be a bit more. I apologize about my poor vocabulary I wrote this in a hurry.
