    I don't really care what a car looks like on the outside. I rarely see it anyways, so no big deal. If an Aztek drove awesome, I'd be all over it.

    I do care about the interior because I DD my cars, and I care enough about my surroundings when I'm road tripping, or stuck in traffic. I spend a lot of time inside a car so creature comfort and aesthetics are pretty important to me. When self driving actually happens, it'll matter even more because you'll always be look at your surroundings and not the road.

    One interesting thing about the 3, they stopped using Mercedes switchgear, and not sure where it's sourced from now. It looks 10x cheaper than the S, which relied on 2 generation old Mercedes switchgear. The steering wheel on the 3 also felt like a toy, huge downgrade from the feel of the S/X steering wheel.

    Surprised you find the C63S undertired (255/285). The Model 3 Performance is 235's all around haha.

    Also these Dunlopís are garbage.

    I have to say that being in W205's interior, so far I have not lusted after another interior yet. Usually it get tired of it after 2 years but I don't see any other cars with comparable quality in the same price range.

    The only thing I would bitch about is not enough FPS on some of the menu transition screens but I'm sure they fixed that with next gen system in 2019.

    “Experienced auto x and performance instructor” but he let his tire pressures jump up to 50psi and wasn’t keeping an eye on them between runs?

    Model 3 Performance price drop. Performance package which has the track mode when it releases is now free. $84,800, autopilot $6600, $91,400 plus tax. At that price I’m getting closer to dealing with the interior haha.

    Cheaper EV's would be awesome, and there's a lot of brainpower working towards that goal. It'll happen

    Even if gas went to 3.00/l, I am still not there to spend that money on that blob styling... It needs to be half that price to get people into something so visually unappealing with its appliance like looks.

    I saw my first Model3 at Mec a couple of days ago. Horrendous styling. I don't think that's an opinion thing. That's jsut the objective reality.

    I rode in a new Model S in San Francisco last weekend (for the first time actually). Guy spent the whole time demoing and bragging about the auto-pilot. Nothing could be more boring to me than a car that drives itself. Convenient? Sure. But it's hard for this car enthusiast to get excited about turning the automotive landscape into a bunch of boring electrified transportation pods. Gross.

    It really highlted to me how Teslas and EVs aren't for Car Guys (or Enthusiasts). Rather they are for technology enthusiasts who spend time online hunting down the latest iPhone leak.

    It's depressing.

    Tesla is awful.

    Disagree with this. I hardly use AP because I live in Winnipeg mostly, and it's not required, but when in LA, it's amazingly useful. Come drive the 405 and tell me AP is boring. It's very useful. Was the guy showing you a car-guy? Doesn't sound like it. Brand new model S and he only showed you AP? Did he have the performance addition?

    Everyone has their preference, I like the S and 3. The S looks better than the 3, but I still can live with the 3. Which car really looks perfect these days?

    Truth. What kind of enthusiast wants to listen to a bloody electric motor when they hit the throttle? No thanks. I've driven the p100d and yeah, it's fast as fuck but there is zero emotion driving that car. Wouldn't even pick one up if they were $30k.

    Tesla discussions sound like a cross between vitamix discussions and roomba discussions.
