    Mike,

    Curious to hear how the tint and dipping go - good luck. Am trying to find a place or places to handle OptiCoat Pro or similar, tint, dashcams install, and powder coating rims. While presently near LA, can get the work done anywhere from the Bay Area (after 12/26 factory pickup) to San Diego. Don't think I'll mind the drive . So far am 2 for 5 in just getting places to return my calls/emails :/

    Agreed, I'm having the exact experience. DS delivery date was 12/20. I cannot get anyone to answer emails or my questions for the past week (yes I realize it is a holiday week, but still). All in all, so far it is the worst customer service I've experienced in a major corporation. It is interesting that it was an identified problem by GeorgeB over 2 years ago and hasn't been improved. Wonder if they are simply understaffed and/or undertrained to handle such things?

    Happy for all those who have received their cars prior to year's end.

    My family recently bought a used car through BMW, I can assure you getting anyone to respond through Crevier BMW was a pain in the butt. I literally left 5 messages to different offices and no one replied. So I took a trip down to their dealer, waited in the lobby for 45 minutes and the answer was "we're a big company so it'll take some time." This happened during December, and when issues with the car arose, I had to go through the salesman for help, when he found out The car had issues, he ironically took several sick days off. They were very quick to accept our payment for the car thought, that process was the easiest. I hope your experience after getting the car will be much much better.

    I should also add that text messages to reps were not replied on several occasions and emails were not responded to from Crevier.

    Appointment booked for 3 pm today. Looks like "late December" is going to come true. 64xxx

    My DS has been very responsive to emails and answered questions in a timely manner. A full report after delivery will follow if I can pry myself away from the vehicle.

    Got my S60 on 12/19. Great car, enjoying it so far.
    Very good experience with Tesla in general, but poor experience with DS (difficult to contact, difficult to get a timely response even by email).
    Here are some of my observations; most of these are probably well known, but FWIW:

    • I really like the voice command features, especially searching for music. However, it doesn't seem to be good at recognizing street names. I have no difficulty with google voice search on my phone, so I'm guessing this is because Tesla's way of using google voice search isn't personalized (?)
    • One-pedal driving is awesome, even better than I thought it would be (based on my test-drives). It really contributes a lot to the driving experience, once you get used to standard regen.
    • Autopilot:
      • Lane-departure warning is ok once you've trained yourself to recognize it.
      • Speed-limit warning is somewhat annoying since it doesn't differentiate between truck and car speed limits, and often gives me false warnings.
      • Looking forward to the rest of the autopilot pilot features (and improvements on the above)! I was told at delivery that they're trying to push out some new features by year-end.

    • I had a P85 loaner for a day (while the SC was installing my center console, and looking into a potential issue with my wipers). I didn’t find it to be much “faster” (I mean just the feeling of acceleration) than my S60. Maybe it’s because I haven’t driven a performance car before, but I find my S60’s acceleration to be way more than sufficient, and highly enjoyable.
    • I’ve found Traffic-aware Nav to be quite ok so far (unlike the experience of many others on this forum – perhaps recent firmware updates have solved some of the issues). On a recent trip to Gilroy (from Santa Clara), it re-routed me via CA-85 (from 101) and saved some time.
    • Few negatives/nitpicks (again probably well-known):
      • I still hate the fact that the car is so wide. It’s just been a week, so I might get used to it after a while, but I’m looking forward to model-3 (assuming it’s smaller and more maneuverable).
      • Visors aren’t much better (than the cars I test-drove in Sept). In particular, you cannot extend them sideways (when the sun is low and between the 2 visors).
      • Knee-level width for the driver is somewhat limited. I find my right knee hitting (or being constrained by) the center column quite often.


    I've benefited a lot by reading posts on this forum, so thanks to everyone.

    I would call it amauter at best with regards to plasti-dip the rims. It looks good at night and from afar, however up close dipping(powder coat) would be the preferred method if one wanted to change the appearance of there factory rims. It only cost $250. I met a guy who owns a shop in SD that would charge me $150 per rim to powder coat each rim. What is dashcam? I'd like to install wifi inside my car with a camera, so see who is peaking into my car. I've noticed a few people like to see the car upclose and personal. I added the Tesla T LED light in the front which gives it a superman like appearance at night.
