My hope is that drive system changes will reduce to near zero in 12 months simply because there isn't much left to fix/change, but that the center console updates (non-drive systems) will maintain a more typical approach to releases as apps are added/improved.
I appear to be on track for 26,000 miles per year on my Model S! Drove a solid 500 miles this first week of having the car...you'd hardly know it. My wife, to my great relief, was actually willing (maybe even eager?) to take the car off on her own a couple of times. Part of my scheme to get her to insist on buying a Model X in a couple of years.
I really don't think I'll get anywhere near 25k miles a year, I usually live in the 15-18k/yr range, but I don't think it would be too shocking to go over 20k in year 1 since we'll preferrentialy be using the S for the short trips to the store and other routine driving since we won't use gas.

Model X Reservation Sequence # 5966 (for the wife)
My wife is talking about an X now
She has only driven my car twice now. She is a little worried (of other drivers?) that she'll hurt it.
I think she may have had the pwr up to 240 kW and then got scared ;>
She'll floor is soon. I have the pedal down way too often.
Today I made it to work w/ no 0-60 run for the first time!!
and gentle takeoffs. Just not as fun at 6:00 without any cars on the road!

Maybe Tesla needs more prominent badging. Or someone needs to make up bumper stickers, "This is not a Maserati"
