I currently drive a BMW 330i, Test drove an 85kWh @ SantanaRow, could not wipe the tesla grin for an hr ! what an Amazing drive. I've been lurking around forums here and teslamotorsclub for quite some time (countless hrs).
60kWh,White,Tan,Obeche Matte, Tech, Air, Super Charger - All ready to hit the finalize button. None of the software issues or lack of x,y,z, features or interior, battery degradation, charging issues ... mattered BUT Here is what's stopping me
> The doors, door handles
* Doors closing and opening was iffy, doors on the car @ SantanaRow were not closing shut solid !
* I read a couple of posts about doors not opening or opening by themselves
* Door seals having too much water after car wash etc
* I read / watched reviews that "squeaks and rattles are low to none", but how is it after a couple of months ?
Could folks having the car comment on how the doors & handles are holding up ? I understand TM is addressing them fairly quickly, but hard to accommodate the downtime with the busy schedule.
Being an embedded Software Engineer myself I have a stomach for software issues and to a point hardware but, as basic as doors and windows ! I'm still dreaded by couple of the annoying issues I had with BMW e46 - window regulators, rattles all over the place. Don't want to get to the same state.
Thanks a lot for the amazing posts in helping me decide the options.
