My S 85 has been in the shop for a week which I spent driving a brand new loaner P85. The difference between the two was astonishing, cabin of the loaner was way less outside noise (I made a previous overestimate), no air leaks, no rattles, creaks or buzzes. The ride was smoother as well, despite having 21" wheels instead of my 19". When I got my car back I felt extremely disappointed in how loud and rickety it was in comparison.
A quiet cabin without distracting creaks and buzzes is really important to me. I have been to service centers a few times to correct the noise issues to no avail. Honestly, my S feels like a cheap car in the inside. I couldn't really figure out why until I drove a newer S. Just the subtle (and not subtle) differences were like the difference between a high end BMW and a cheap Hundai.
Maybe the problem is because I got the textile I interior. I didn't want a cheap interior, I just didn't want leather.
Apparently the only way to correct this is just to sell the damn thing at a giant loss and buy a new one (with leather). Kinda pissed.
