So, I finally picked up my 85 yesterday. Everything looked great. The delivery specialist I had mostly dealt with was busy with someone else, so the walkthrough was done by someone I didn't know. He did a good job. There were two hiccups, one semi-major, and the other minor.
Getting the 85 battery is supposed to get you supercharging capability and upgraded tires (Michelin Primacy instead of Goodyear). I noticed when we looked at the car that it had the Goodyears on. Surprisingly, nobody at the service center knew about this. I committed to my car shortly after the new pricing structure, so I suppose it's possible that mine was one of the first few to have this. Anyway, they changed the tires for me with no issues after checking to be sure that I was right.
Their was also some minor issues with bluetooth connections to my phone (Samsung Galaxy S4) and to my wife's iPhone. The iPhone problem was known by the person guiding the walkthrough, but the S4 linked, but would not play any music. I think the problem is solved.
Anyway, car charged at 24 mile/hour on a 208 watt/40 amp 15-50 wall outlet at home.
I changed the license plate lights to LEDs ($5 upgrade on a $90,000 car is kind of ironic, no?).
First real driving will be this week. I still have to figure out how to mount EZ pass.
