A "pop up" is typically a temporary location for a store. The lease could be as short as a month or two.

Received my invite today, and rsvp'd for wifey, myself and our 12 year son. Be good fun to have a test drive in the dark. Guessing they wont have any AWD/autopilot testers in UK yet...?

I'll be going.

I wouldn't mind a test drive in one with 21s and the air so I can compare. I ordered mine blind, so it will be good to see if there is a significant difference.

I also have some niggles I'd like to book in for rectification.

i tried 19's and 21's, couldnt tell any difference in road noise or vibration. not sure about the air, i dont think either test cars had it. tesla guy who i was with said in his opinion most folks couldnt notice so if i wanted to save some £'s, drop it off the must have list. ps. also be v. interesting to see if any of the cars have the new style bucket seats/fins. or i could just wait until end feb when my 85 is delivered. most excited to see what my wife makes of driving one. she just sat in back seat last time out. also looking forward to trying the music streaming properly so hopefully they have good 3g!¬

Not likely to see a D or next gen seats until next summer!

Air vs Coil ... Just done a back to back. IMO, the difference is that you feel more connected to the road with the coils, whereas air just soaks it all up.

You feel it most on road humps - air just floats over them. :)

Hard to say which I prefer. The coils are really great, but you don't get the height adjustment. The air is also great, but it leaves you feeling (even more) detached from the driving process.
