    I'd have to test drive it first. People who have driven/own both seem to like the 3 better since it's not such a boat. Now the Roadster, I better not ever sit in that thing or I might want it. Still ridiculous sums of money for cars. Maybe if we don't go into a recession here in the next couple years

    Have you considered starting an email chain with yourself instead of wasting board bandwidth?

    I lol'd at the fact that he was posting live updates in here like anyone on this forum was actually watching along and paying attention to him.

    Buddy got a model Y. I can't believe the fit and finish hasn't improved on Teslas lately. Body panel gaps are off and his rear spoiler/ lip thingy wasn't molded correctly and thus pulls up off the adhesive.

    It's impressive sure, but it's an EV so who really cares? It'd be kinda like bringing a UAV to an airshow. Sure they're cool and all but lemme see that old F-22, nah mean?

    I was hoping it wouldn't have to come to that, but it seems to be your goal.

    Good to know; Tesla just ordered a couple of UPS systems from my company. I was worried that they would put them under their QC microscope; I guess not!

    https://www.tesla.com/support/meet-your-tesla/model-s

    2.74s 0-60 with 3 people in it, according to draggy
    @ 9:00 in. Headphone warning, backseat passenger screams, a lot.

    That's a good point. Should implement the Dole hack so he can only post in this one

    agreed, 100%. Looks like it's what they thought a 2021 steering wheel would look like in 1983.

    There is no way NHTSA approves that right?

    Edit- just noticed it goes all the way around the bottom. Thought it was a left and right handle only. Maybe they would approve that then.
