Good Afternoon/Evening Fellow Tesla enthusiasts,
I am not a guy with tons of money in the bank, I simply make a good salary along with my wife and have always wanted to treat myself to a Fast, nice, luxurious car. I love cars. I have had many over the year, Toyo Priuses, BMW Z3, Nissan Maxima ect. I currently own 2 chevy volts. The itch to get a performance electric car has taken over... ;-) I am approved for financing and am realizing that this is a HUGE commitment and want to make sure I am not being someone else's beta tester. I have an order (not yet confirmed) for the 85kwh (not performance). with the tech, sound system along with dual chargers. I wanted the sunroof but have read too much chatter on here about wind noise/leakage ect. I am very concerned about this. Additionally, I have seen pictures of cars where the paint is not absolutely flawless. Elon personally was stating he wanted them to come out with "piano finishes". This seems to be a theme of cars needing to go to detail shops. Am I disillusioned about the company and car? I am am a HUGE fan of Elon and his work. I really want a Model S but for the amount of time I will be paying for it, it needs to be perfect.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you everyone.
