I picked up my Special Signature Red 2012 Model S yesterday 9/19/12.
The Obeche Wood (Matte) was an exellent choice. Really glad we did not get the "shiny" version.
Got the 19" silver rims. Saw a couple Sig Reds with the Black performance rims and again, I am glad I went with the silver rims.
Tan perforated Napa leather. Again awesome, especially against the Signature Red. The "red" is more like an "ox blood" and really quite beautiful.
Pano-roof is sooooooooo cooool.
The 17" display is so far ahead of anything else (slightly angeled towards driver, as well), I don't know what to say. Bluetoothed my phone and tablet while I was still in the showroom. Auto-links contact lists, recent phone calls, etc. Could not link my iPod.
Oh and Tesla is giving everyone free internet until they get the wifi up an running. Thanks Tesla. Way Cool. Browser is not yet Chrome, so you can not yet link to your g-mail profile yet. But reportedly coming soon.
Charger does not yet have a timer (like the Roadster) so I have to wait until 11:00 pm to plug in for the lower energy rates. Going to be a pain at first.
This car is miles ahead of the Roadster in so many ways I do not know where to start (and the Roadster is fantastic). BTW it took all of 15 minutes for the first "that's a great looking car. OMG is the new Model S"
Please post with any questions or answers (like why i did not get a 110 adapter for the charger plug. or why there is no timer on the charging function, or why i can't link my iPod, etc).
