I started a thread about two weeks ago trying to decide between the P85 and straight 85 model. At that time, some of you may recall, I decided to save the money, stick with the 85, keep the 19" wheels and look forward to a late June delivery. Of course, spending an inordinate amount of time on these and other forums would help to pass the time and keep me sane.
During one of my final calls to Tesla, I inquired about any inventory cars they might have. Guess what, they had the exact car I ordered, but P85 and with 21" black wheels ready for delivery in about a week, with about 500 miles on it. Viewing this as divine intervention to get the P85 :-) over the standard 85, I said yes and I should be picking it up tomorrow.
I kind of like the idea that the car has a few miles on it, has been driven by a Tesla engineer multiple times (maybe the trunk will be tight), and I won't be finding the first of any major system faults. Plus, I get a pre 10,000 VIN!
Kind of worked out well. While I don't yet have the car, the folks (one in particular) at Tesla who has been helping me with this process are awesome. They were constantly communicating with me every step of the way. I was totally deadset against the spoiler, and this car was slated to be built with one. But, it hadn't been applied yet(again back to the divine intervention comment), so my contact at Tesla literally held them off of doing it. Talk about going the extra mile.
My HPWC showed up today and I will be ready to go tomorrow when I get the car. I've just been really impressed thus far.
