I drive an S2000 (Arguably one of the best ICE driver's cars made)... and test drove a Model S. Regret every single day because I can't afford a Model S yet thank goodness I drive one day a week only lol
So very true.

I couldn't agree more. It's very much like an electric light bulb vs an oil lamp. It can also be really dangerous to switch back. I find myself thinking that I have plenty of room to merge into traffic, pressing on the accelerator (gotta get out of the habit of calling it the gas pedal) and not going anywhere while the engine makes all kinds of racket. I've had a few moments of panic and had to wave a sheepish "I'm sorry" to a few drivers. I'm strongly considering getting rid of our last ICE vehicle and getting a ford focus electric in addition to the tesla. I should have gotten the tesla second though because nothing else really measures up.
While I don't have a Model S I would say the lack of regen braking throws me off for a bit when going back to an ICE. Sure, you can engine brake but it doesn't slow you down nearly as fast as regen does (at least it doesn't feel like it) and the ICE makes all sorts of noise in the process.
