  1. If everyone drove cars just to have fun, the roads would be filled with small hotrods. Most people look for something else.
  2. Is there a significant difference in consumption between the original model and the facelift model?
  3. Shouldn't the dealer you buy it from update everything before handing over the car?
  4. Brilliant car! Ridiculously overpriced over here though :(
  5. Good write up. I've read a lot of reviews by now, it mostly boils down to "you can't race with it" and "it's not a BMW". When you read a raving review and the guy ends with "it's a brilliant car, but not a German", it seems idiotic to me personally. You have to take into consideration that reviewers usually get a very short period to test a car though, this one takes getting used to.
  6. If only they didn't have crazy prices. I can't justify getting a loan because I think Tesla charges too much for their cars, even though I think they're on the frontier of a new generation. Hopefully they won't have to compromise too much with the Model 3, but their huge net losses every year don't give me much hope. Elon Musk did fuel the EV hype though, we can thank him for that at least. Everyone I know knows what a Tesla is
  7. Seems like normal behaviour to me really. Most professionals usually assume the guy on the other side is a moron. The paddles are probably some inside joke between Lexus mechanics since they are there just for show.
  8. Why do you assume getting up to the required speed fast is more energy consuming than getting there slower? If what you say is true, it would mean the engineers made a serious mistake.
  9. Some very smart people on Priuschat speculate ACC shoots to high rpms to get to speed because it's the most efficient way for the hybrid drive.
  10. I highly doubt it since people rarely deviate from the brands they know and are comfortable with. Even if they get advice, they probably get it from some friend who has a very comparable brand knowledge.
  11. I always liked Tesla, great cars which are brilliant to drive. My only problem with them is, IMO you don't get the car you pay for. I find them way overpriced. Hopefully one day Tesla (with model 3 maybe) or some other manufacturer will make a properly priced, great EV. Enjoy your new toy, it'll be great fun.
  12. The looks and the LFA inspired dash alone make the F-sport worth it IMO. Drive both a luxury and an F-Sport though, you'll need to accept a little less comfort and a little bit more road noise with the F-sport.
  13. Tell that friend of a friend, he's an idiot.
