Ok here it goes...
(...) My wife did not like the car at all. I guess I’m glad I didn’t put in a second reservation :)

your wife sounds like a spoil-sport ;)





still jealous of her dyson supersonic though....
The exact quote...

“It looks no different than our current car [Hyundai Sonata]”.

Important to note she is not and never has been a car person though she has eyes for Model X right now.

Nice guys (2 of them). They really talk the car down. They say Autopilot is “crap” compared to S/X. It was a bit odd to be honest as they have no reason to upsell since they’re not selling anything. Also take that with a grain of salt as they said AP 2 in the S is better than AP1.

I will be going Midnight Silver for sure. I wasn’t feeling the white in the partial sun/cloud cover. Plus those bugs on the front... yikes!

@SoFlaModel3,

I was going to ask what she didn’t like but you answered above! I see she likes the X, does she like the Model S? I guess more drive time for you in the Model 3.....no competition in your household!

She has decent seat time in the passenger seat of my dad’s S now. Hard to say. I don’t think she likes it either. The X catches her eye though. Good news for me — we don’t share my car ever. She drives hers and I drive both. Usually when we go out I’m driving regardless of which car, so she just prefers to be a passenger.

Ouch! I mean, the Sonata is not a bad vehicle at all (sister car to my Optima I believe) but still, ouch.

I would be so happy if my wife didn’t like the 3! But I’m pretty sure we will be fighting over who takes it to work each day.

Guess who will be begging to get to drive it -even if occasionally - until Midnight S≡R≡NITY gets here... in 15-18 months?! o_O

Some women or rather people are kill joys..,

Don't buy the car if it's going to piss your wife off...not worth the headache...

If she is just not interested? Well good luck in that marriage..,

How often does your wife show you a new dress or shoes or whatever and you could really care less but you act excited...?

Turnabout is fair play...

Imo if you dig the car...a good wife would at least pretend to be interested..lol for 45 minutes .. ;)

Just as a courtesy ...

So to clarify (and be fair), she has heard me talk non-stop about this car for 20+ months, so she put in the time. She doesn't mind me getting the car at all and she won't mind being in it as a passenger either. She just doesn't see the big deal (hype) with it, but again she's not a car person at all.

She's a "bag lady" and that hurts more than car payments :eek::eek::eek:

In the land of immediate gratification 20 months is a very long time..

Projecting balance is always important even though many of us are extreme car or electric car enthusiasts...lol

She sounds cool...good luck...and definitely buy some bag she is dreaming of when your car comes in to share happiness.
