I was getting my MINI serviced and had them drop me off at the Tesla showroom. On that note, that might be my last oil change before trading in.
Most of what I'll cover is interior and thoughts on adding accessories.
First off, from photos I wasn't sure I liked that the 17" is permanently facing the driver and making the whole dash non symmetrical. I'm still not fond of it and as a design change it should had been centered with a symmetrical dash and have a 3 position pivot. The other problem is the lower left corner cuts into legroom.
I didn't have the seat all the way back. I'm 6'1" and the current setting for all the way back was good for me but the limit IMHO is 6'4"ish.
Not a deal breaker thought ; )
I did play with the remote for adjusting the steering and it telescopes out quite far.
I took a shot of the rear under belly to see if mounting a hitch was possible for bike racks. Doesn't look like there's an accommodation.
But when I mentioned to the rep they showed me the roof rack mounts. Nice!
A shot of the sunroof fully open. See how it extends be on the B pillar.
I took a shot of the brake caliper clearance for 19" wheels to see if you could go smaller. Less unsprung wt to spin up when accelerating. 18" for sure but I'm thinking 17" wheels would be the limit.
I'm pretty set on black but the green is quite dark and can look black in some light.
I tried to capture the lacewood sample as well
A few interior shots of screen.
Still sold on it bigtime as #3562 and looking to get the 160 range model the wait continues.
