    I am not really a fan of the C63 styling, but compared to the Model 3 it is way nicer. The M3 is a real beauty IMO.

    You'd figure with the billions of dollars Tesla burns they could have tossed a few hundred stacks into the design furnace.

    I really like the approach jaguar took with shortening up the hood, I know in the past for men the length of your hood was a great way to make up for the lack of length in other areas... but personally I like snub nosed cars and being able to see what is in front of you better.

    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.

    245/265 on the sedan...

    Also these Dunlopís are garbage.

    I am very used to the chirping of the TCS

    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?

    Yeah I don't know wtf is going on with his tire pressure references in that. You have to check your tire roll over, then fine tune a perfect pressure from there. Is he trying to run 50 because that is the cold sill pressure? Also 50 is pretty high.

    I don't think you can take anything of value out of that article

    I will be watching for the model 3 with track mode and proper tires at a proper event. I don't really care about personal testimonials on Tesla websites, haha.
