    At least the number 22 loser cruiser will have decent brakes https://forums.tesla.com/forum/forums/consumer-reports-model-3-braking-distance-far-worse-any-contemporary-car-we-have-tested
  3. Notice how blue is irresistible to the laydeeez. I had forgotten what the stock pipes looked like.

    Same way they know to take money out your bank account when you tap your enabled card on the machine. Same way your media player knows to connect to your phone etc. I mean, you know you can even pay for your shopping by tapping your phone on the counter now? Not hard at all, cars could even carry a chip so when you charge at a public space the money comes out your account. The Govt will love that as they can track everyone.

    It already exists in testing, see post 97 Sent from my STV100-4 using Tapatalk
  6. Not as common as those tesla things. They're everywhere. Was that a genuine bump into an unknown RCF? Sent from my STV100-4 using Tapatalk
  7. A local garage has bought a Tesla and converted it to run on chicken poo. It's faster than EV and only emissions is hard boiled eggs. Bit dangerous for following vehicles though. https://www.fircroft.com/blogs/poo-power-chicken-excrement-could-be-new-renewable-energy-source-73252111625 Have we ruined the topic ALREADY?

    It's also a very wealthy state. With lots of high paid jobs including in Tech. A great market for something like Tesla.

    Which is my other point. A change in societal norms. Which can take a generation or more...or war. Sent from my STV100-4 using Tapatalk

    Exactly the point I've been making. But hey, it's cool and the future so if you mention any practical hurdles you just can't accept change. It's currently in public beta as far as I can tell. Sent from my STV100-4 using Tapatalk

    There will be induction charging. Theoretically could be one in every parking space and strips in streets. Sent from my STV100-4 using Tapatalk

    So let's assume we all decide ok "gadzooks, ganzoom is right - it is the future" and over 1 billion car drivers place an order, tomorrow, for an EV.... Tell me, how long will it take to make and supply the batteries? It doesn't matter whether one thinks they are the best thing since Kylie signed for agent provocateur, there simply aren't enough Kylies to go round. If you think people should just ignore these issues and carry on then that's your opinion, but they are valid concerns about sustainability. Not even to mention Tesla's finacial position.

    Amazed with the 300H

    Can't remember seeing this term in insurance, but modern cars record gear position and revs in the ECU so you're bang to rights if the police are involved. Lane discipline - agree - it's shocking - I usually avoid motorways for 2 reasons, angry lane hoggers and "smart revenue tax systems" Agree with speed limits. It should just be the speed limit of the tyres. 😋

    Petrol ?

    I don't think it's that straight-forward If you buy BP Ultimate you are getting BP Ultimate. If you fill up at Esso you will get Esso. The difference being the additive package. Stuff that helps clean and lubricate or improve MPG etc. Snake oil? Maybe some of it is marketing bullcrap but I am confident over-all we get good quality fuel from our branded suppliers. Supermarkets as far as we know shop around for the cheapest fuel. One month that may be a tanker of BP or Esso but there is talk of it sometimes coming from abroad. Maybe older batch? Who really knows who's prepared to say? These occasional blips in quality may lead to the anecdotal evidence of people claiming their cars did not run as well on supermarket fuel. And herein lies the problem for me - you don't actually know what you're putting in. Kind of petrol lucky dip. So if you've never had an issue and are happy with supermarket fuel I don't see a reason to change. It's very unlikely anyone will put long term damage down to fuel or lack of it to good fuel, so the answer, without lots of independent expensive testing, is likely to remain a mystery.

    And how does that alter the actual facts?

    That's not strong sales - that's crap production - Toyota produce about 200,000 a week by comparison. In 2016 Lexus sold nearly 678,000 cars. Even at 5000 a week that's only 260,000 - that's why there is a waiting list.

    Thank you for that. Really worth looking into for people with older kit and bikes. Sent from my STV100-4 using Tapatalk

    Post your Pics

    Not really noticed that aspect of steering wheel. Maybe because I look over the top of it? :D My carbon inside is silver. 35 is nothing as you say so worth a punt. I know where you could get a set of the carbon wheels. I'll distract him with aeroplanes while you get your socket set ready. Sent from my STV100-4 using Tapatalk

    Problem with steering wheel bling is that the other carbon in the cabin is silver. Unless yours is black? Ideally want same weave pattern too. Although should never use carbon to add weight......just seems wrong :D Looking forward to seeing the wheels and brakes. You could have your wheels dipped so they look carbon.
