    Better late than never?

    Finally got around to posting this!

    My P85+ was delivered on a brisk evening in May (9:25PM CST May 2nd, to be exact). However, it was involved in an accident 11 days later on May 13th and I only just got it back on July 18th! Please forgive me, but I didn't feel up to writing about a car I was not in possession of.

    Due to this year's Polar Vortex, it was about 3 degrees Celsius and lightly snowing when my car was delivered. I actually had to wear my Sping/Fall jacket during the whole thing and my cameraperson had to take several breaks due to excessive shivering...

    You can notice pockets of snow in the background and all the plant-life was still dead.

    Doing the initial inspection was difficult because sunset is about 8PM at that time of year. Fortunately, I remembered my delivery checklist so I didn't keep the poor delivery guy waiting around too long. (Dude was making the 2000+ kilometer trip back to Vancouver the next day, only to pick up another Model S for delivery to Edmonton!)

    First Impressions:

    1) Tail lights were different-looking (I didn't remember the casings being colorless in photos I've seen)
    2) Tire noise with the P85+ is quite pronounced on our rough-coat pavement but my concerns about ride quality were unfounded. The car rides great! (the 19-inch wheels must ride wonderfully)
    3) Door openings were smaller than I'm used to, but I'm used to coupes (This is my first sedan)
    4) Regen was not as noticeable as I remember from test drives
    5) MC Red paint was darker than I expected (I though it was more like the red on the brake calipers, for some reason)
    6) Tan interior is lighter than I thought. I'm a bit concerned it will stain/mark up easily.
    7) What were they thinking with the key fob hook?! NONE of my key rings will fit it! I eventually let my mom tie a piece of yarn to it, just so I wouldn't lose it.
    8) Both Rated and Ideal ranges are very optimistic. I never came close to either one during daily use.
    9) Steering adjustment does not work like I thought it would (for example, I expected 'sport' to offer more precision but it just increases steering effort)
    10) Tire Pressures: Door placard indicates optimal pressure of 38PSI (Front) and 40PSI (Rear)
    11) Internet functions not well thought out for areas with spotty service (should cache album art and maps)
