Yes, unfortunately for those of us around here, California is light years ahead of New England! If I were in CA, I'd do the twin chargers.
I've driven both the standard and performance versions and I've no doubt most will be happy with the standard 85kw version. I'm old and retired now and my reason for going performance was very simple. I can't wait to spank the a$$ of my son-in-law's new Caddy CTS-V!! He's been trash talking me for a while but I notice lately that he's been studying the Perf test results more and he just went out and bought an air cone for his cts-v that is supposed to add 25hp. Bring it on Youngblood!!

I don't have any habits, that's why I want to make sure that I don't get stranded without the use of my car for more than a few hours. My Roadster only gets charged once a week on average, since I only drive about 250 miles a month and I take the best possible care of my battery by not charging when it's not necessary. That's why I prefer not to face a potential 9- or 10-hour wait... as you said, it depends.
I drive a CTS-V and would bet that your Performance S will beat him in the short run. I have yet to launch the V at close to its rated 0-60 time. I have the 6 Speed manual so perhaps if he is driving the automatic he might keep up with you even in the short race. Watch out when he pulls about 5,000 RPM in 4th all you will see is tail lights, he will be gone.
