    So, I went by the Marietta, Ga. showroom today under the guise of getting another test drive in the Model S (had to get another fix). Everyone there was fantastic, as usual. Got to drive a P90DL this time. Yes, I scared the bejeezus out of myself with a Ludicrous acceleration run...two of them in fact! Spent a lot of time with auto pilot as well. Actually taught the Tesla guy about holding the cruise control lever towards you for a few seconds and the autopilot will actually follow the speed limit changes for your route of travel. Made me feel special! ;) Left the test drive with a feeling that these cars are awe inspiring in every way. Also left with the feeling that they also demand your respect with the level of performance at your finger tips.

    The interesting thing I noticed was that as we were returning I saw at least 20 Model Xs in their lot. All of these were customer cars that were getting ready for delivery. The gentleman that gave me the test drive said that they were incredibly busy with Model X delivery. I guess the factory has figured out all the issues with the X and are really stepping up delivery. Don't know if this is the case in all parts of the country or world for that matter but I noticed that Bjorn Nyland is noticing deliveries in Norway as well. I see this as great news and seeing all those cars waiting for their owners got me all excited wondering when it will be a lot full of Model 3s...one of which will have my name on it! :)

      @Dan Detweiler,

      I'm envious of your P90D test drive! I've stopped by my closest Showroom....120 miles away...no test drive scheduled but checked things out. Still have to schedule a TD. Can't wait....did however check out the Design Studio....color palettes etc.....they had a P70 Multicoat Red on the floor that I sat in with NextGen seats (man those are nice! Super comfortable) and a Blue Model X I sat in as well.....talked to the Manager as well as the Delivery Specialist....nice group of folks.....they said schedule a TD whenever It's convenient for me however the SC is out of the way and requires a special trip up there.

      It was funny, I called the showroom directly on a whim and said that I was a Model 3 reservation holder and heard about the Model S 60 that came out and was considering getting that instead of the 3. I said I wanted to come in and drive an S to get a better comparison. He scheduled me a test drive for 3 hours later. Scheduling through the web site had the first available test drive at a location much farther away 2 weeks from now. Might be worth your while to try that route.

        @Dan Detweiler,

        I'll give that a shot....when I walked in I told them I was a Model 3 Res Holder as well....the DS said she was as well....we started talking about the 3 and I walked over to the Model S and started in on those...then checked out the X. She said I could either schedule through the site or call them directly.

        @Dan Detweiler,

        Not to thread drift, and I know this is an S....but Holy Cow....this is too good AND put "too much of a smile" on my face NOT to post this.....:) Don't know if this is a Ludicrous like you test drove but I'm speechless.....I've owned bikes and this is crazy fast. Like I mentioned I haven't even test driven a regular S yet!

          Love that video :)

          I have a friend who is taking delivery of the one of the very first Model X Signature series in Canada next week. I'm going to meet him as I have something planned with him for a future show.

          In any case, my wife perked up when I told her and she asked if she can come along to get a "ride" in the Model X. She's never really asked for a ride in a Tesla other than suggest we do one at one of the resorts around here when they do the occasional test drive events. Now I'm scared she will try and talk me into a Model X!

              She's totally on board with the Model 3. We could technically afford a Model S but shelling out $100K+ for a car isn't in the books. She's a long-time VW customer and was asking if the E-Golf was available in Canada because I think she'd consider trading in her City Golf for one. Sadly not.

              Our S was supposed to be my wife's car... Until she spotted the Roadster, and that became her car... Besides, a 75 X is less than $100k and you can still wait for a Model 3. And I'd gladly give you my referral code for that... http://ts.la/dennis5317 (We really want to go to the (Gigafactory tour/party))

              Or "Happy wife, happy life."
