As everyone else says, the car is simply incredible. Straight line handling, power, quiet , the fit and finish. Quite frankly, although I have only put on about a 125 mile since I got the car, I wouldn’t change anything. I know there have been a lot of complaints about the surround view and I don’t get it. I am coming from a 2018 Panamera and the camera is night and day over the one in that car. Although the car did not need charging I went to an Electrify America station not too far from where I live. I did not realize there were chargers at multiple locations and I used the 150kw station. It took about 20 minutes to go from 80% to 98%. The app worked fine. As I was driving away I saw the 350kw station. I will try that some time to see the difference in speed. More details as I put more miles on her but so far Fantastic!

Such a beautiful car! I am starting to come around to the surround view, it takes a little getting used to but now it's coming in handy.

Always good to check for 350 chargers, Plugshare is what I use. And if the first one doesn't work immediately, just try a different one before calling the support line. This will save you a lot of headache!

Welcome aboard!

Regarding the EA Stations:
Since you were already at 80% SoC (State of Charge) you would not have noticed any difference in charging speed between the 150kW and 350kW stations. (or for that matter, a 50kW station would have been nearly as fast).

You won't see the difference a 350kW station can make until you are down around the 20-40% SoC range.
