    I was driving into work this morning about 530am.
    I had the radio tuned to a HD station with the volume up a bit much.
    The music was coming through so clear and crisp. It was the best I had heard from the system, which I think it excellent anyway.
    It just blew me away. It made me think we need a thread for what BLOWS YOU AWAY about this car! Please share!

    Ok...so, took my mother-in-law to dinner tonight and she was blown away that Quicksilver can go over 300 miles on a charge. She thought that it was one of those short range City electric cars and when I show her the Tesla charging network map on the display it blew her away the second time. So, this blew away moment was brought to you by my mother-in-law. :D

    I’ll bite... what blows me away is that I have had mine for 13 weeks and still get giddy at the opportunity to drive 1 mile for an errand. :)

    Driving it. This past weekend we went into the mountains and I did the whole 3.5 hours, from traffic-congested city to winding mountain roads and loved every minute of it. :)

    I just discovered a few days ago that I don't have to hit the "arrow" over to the right on the music UI to get it to expand upwards and show my favorites, then again to have it take up almost the entire screen. I found it works like an iPad style where I can drag it up from anywhere and push it down the same way. I know this is small but I had no idea and... MIND. BLOWN.

    So today I got back from a work trip. I was parked at the airport for 31 hours and only lost 5 miles of range.
    What BLEW ME AWAY was that via the last few updates, it appears that Tesla has corrected the excessive vampire drain that I had.
    Now granted the temperatures have gone up and probably help but this is right in line with the owners manual 1% per day.

    After driving a Model S 100D over the weekend, I was blown away by how much more I like my Model 3 than the Model S now. Never thought that could happen, as the Model S is an amazing car. But the 3 is better :) Smaller, more agile, better (forward) visibility, oh yeah, and it's mine!! :D

    How has this car blown me away today, let me count the ways

    1. No keys in my pocket ever again
    2. Never have to start or stop an engine
    3. ACCELERATION
    4. Don't even have to push the "park" button because it does it for you when you open the door!!

    Love this thread and I'll wait a few more weeks until I get to appropriately contribute, but I've read about number 4, but yet it's a very interesting concept. Can you explain more about how it works and how you trust it? Will this work if you have "creep" enabled? Do you have to make sure and open the door before taking your foot off the brake?

    Once the car is stopped and "hold" mode comes on (press the brake a little harder and the car will hold position) you can take your foot off the brake, then push the thumb button to open the door and "P" will display for park. Hop out and walk away. This works with creep on as well but I prefer leaving it off. With creep on and before hold mode activates it will not auto-park and you get a warning message if you pop the door.

    Saturday we dropped off some glass recycling. We had several paper bags of glass bottles and jars along the back seat floor, not filling all the way tightly. The bottles didn't rattle or shift noticably at all! I love how stable the battery and floor design makes this car!

    I never knew #4 existed. I will have to try this today. But I really like Creep Mode (No! Not in that way) and sometimes I cant get HOLD to activate. I might not be doing is correctly

    Ok...looks like I may have another 3 order coming...my younger brother drove in from Wichita Falls yesterday and last night I took him to dinner. He came by our home before I got home from a late meeting and as soon as I drove up the front curb, he came out and stood at the stop of the steps (see my avatar pic) and just froze! I opened the door and got out and he was still standing there froze staring at the car. Finally, he said it looks even better in person and ran down to check it out. :D He was just blown away! After dinner, I let him drive it home and he was just blown away a second time! He is seriously thinking about putting down for a reservation. This blown away moment is brought to you by my brother. :D

    With creep mode on it's a little more tricky but can be done. To engage hold just press the brake harder once stopped, once the "H" shows up release the brake and open the door. I've tried to be a creep also but found out it didn't suit me:).
