Hi all,

Took delivery of my R1S at El Segundo facility. First off, very impressive facility and the employees are super nice and friendly. Scott was my deliver team member. I got there about 45 minutes early for my appt. It was the only S on the lot. Very cool in some stupid way. I walked around it and enjoyed the experience. Lots of oxytocin being released. LOL

We went over the car. Too much info to digest in just an hour +. Got on the road and went to charge my phone and sadly the wireless charging pad does not work. Or let’s put it this way, I’m not sure where I needed to configure it? Or do I need to configure it? Other than that, the paint looked great. The ride home was awesome. A guy in a Tesla was behind me filming my S. The drive on PCH was awesome! One early observation. Conserve mode mileage gains are real. In sport, I was at 190 miles, In conserve I was at 220 miles. Conserve is for grannies though. There was enough power, but I”m spoiled from my Tesla M3P. Once I switched to sport mode, the SUV launched. It felt amazing moving such a heavy vehicle at Tesla speeds. I”ll keep posting as I learn more about the S. Would Love feedback on the wireless charging. Do I need to set it up or should the charge deck surface just work?

So worth the wait.

Assuming the wireless charger is the same one that's used in the R1T, it just doesn't work for most people/phones. The coil is buried too deep to get a good connection and it doesn't hold your phone still enough for it to stay connected even if it does connect for a moment.

I set it using the app on my phone, #391 is mine!
Where do you find the instructions to do that. My app seems super basic. They have a long way to grow to catch Tesla app
