Thanks for your welcome, and I share your reactions.
When I also couldn't get the charger unplugged the first time, I opened the frunk and used the release cable in the corner. I had that little bit of knowledge, but not the simple 'unlock' clue. And it isn't just being
unlocked that works. I have charged it with the car unlocked, and the plug is still locked unless the 'unlock' key fob button is (seemingly uselessly) pressed, or it is again locked to be unlocked.
I had trouble making the rear kick opening reliable until I saw two videos linked to here. Nothing has proven hard so far with a little guidance, but frustrating when you don't have help when you need some. When I was just working off the manual book, some things were not so clear.
I have yet to customize my own home page, or charge away from home, or adjust the height of the suspension. All in good time, which should be soon. I also finally saw the de-icer elements in my windshield for the first time. I could barely see them, and only when a friend pointed them out at night. As some have said, with my focal point well in front of the car, they remain invisible to me even now that I know what to look for. But he picked up on them from a glare flare or imaging smear of a car's rear lights, as others say annoys them (or worse).
I have the black screen issue twice, but resolved it with my naive go to tactic without any knowledge: a simple power cycling. Now I know the 'wait a few seconds' trick, and it may never happen again.
A small thing I finally noticed that I like: on start, the HUD shows the leaper (briefly). Too briefly for me to see it for my first dozen starts, when I was watching the main screen (where it also appears, of course). It struck me as way cool in the HUD, maybe more than is reasonable, but I guess I'm just a fanboy now!
