My understanding of the pros and cons are:

I no longer live in the sun belt

Should be slightly faster and possibly more range (they are quoting the same range, but the Model S dual motors get about 8-10% more range.

Iíve driven dual motor S as loaners and really donít notice the additional motor noise. But the traction is better..l

Yikes.

A quick googling confirms you are correct. I had no idea. (Obviously)

10 percent increased range? That seems impossibly huge.

And the cover comes off. You lose the aero impact, but it looks a lot better.

But I think Iíll be ordering the 19s...
