    Nice. You should repost it without the music in the background maybe. Glad you finally got to drive it.

    so you can hear the silence of the car?

    Here is a pic of the test drive car. (its not me in the car) It wasnt a EU version. They brought it from munich store to Böblingen. At the event they had 3 Model S. And all the slots were full throughout the day. There was also huge interest from other people that were around. Besides, as i was driving around with the model s, many people in other cars were staring at us because in every start in traffic light i let them see the 600 Nm torque. Then when i stopped at the next traffic light and the ones behind me came they had their jaws dropped and were looking at us like wtf )

    While it's fresh in your mind, if you were to "nitpick" 3 things that you observed during your test drive (about the car itself) what would they be?

    hmmm...im thinkin since 5mins about your nitpick stuff but i cant think of ...
    hmm...now i have one! the doors having no side storage is maybe a point i could pick.

    But there is one big impression after the test drive that i have, which is i think overshadowing everything else. That is the incredible "Star Trek Warp Drive" similar driving feeling. It felt like you are driving on butter. Like a spaceship. And very very quiet.
    Of course in the curves when u floor the gas pedal, the stability control hits in, which i think could me more aggrasive then it was on my test drive car. I dont know whether you can change the settings there but i can imagine when the AWD version comes out, the handling will be even better.

    Thanks for the follow-up. Yah, there are definitely times when it would be handy to have clever concealed storage like was demo'd on the, I think, Fisker Atlantic.

    Yeah! That's one of the cool things about the car. That and some people might not like the music as much and find it distracting from what is going on in the video. Anyway, looks like you had a great time.
