Took my first test drive last week (S85) and had three distinct Tesla Grin moments:
1. 0-60 MPH
2. 50-80 MPH (this was the bigger grin. it's just so cool)
3. Total confidence when merging into traffic via the highway on-ramp.
I have been building all kinds of financial models to see if I can make a purchase work and think I'm there (will likely be next spring sometime after bonus season). One question I had for this forum is about having two HPWC locations installed at my home. We are a two car family with only a one car garage. There's a place to park in the driveway outside the garage and my wife and I often swap places there based on who gets home first. I was thinking to definitely install one HPWC in the garage but thought about adding a second somehow outside. Has anyone done this? Or, have you installed a 220v outlet outside and charged that way? Pros and cons to this approach?
We could always move the cars at the end of the day to ensure the MS gets the garage spot but want to think through solutions to charge in both places if possible.
Thanks and stoked to be a part of this community (hopefully soon!)
