I'm on the edge of ordering a Model S P85. I noticed that people refer to private threads. From what I have gathered that in order to post private or view private posts that you have to be an owner or have an order in for a vehicle, right? Can a person see and or possibly post in the 2 weeks leading up to the final decision of buying the car?
I'm trying to gather information to decide to purchase a Model S at this time or maybe wait till the spring of 2014. It would be useful to see what posts are going on in the private forums but not to post in them. One advantage in being private is that you have a very good chance of not having misguided information from people being malicious about the car or Tesla. That would benefit future owner. In the general forum there is a chance of a troll posting stuff since anyone can become a forum member and possibly misguide future buyers. So I have to be a little careful of negative comments and see how others comment back.
But if anyone could READ the private posts then they would be more assured that the info was most likely valid.
