I love hearing that I own a good car! and I don't care how optimistic the reviewer is! After all, I own the sucker now anyway!
Well, bottom line is it is a good car. Solid, reliable, quiet, nice to drive, peppy, nicely finished, a hatchback. It’s not an Ipace or Tesla but it’s not priced like one. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy another.

Sucks. And weird as it’s an American brand. Anyway, the leaf SL Eplus is a nicely featured alternative.

I know, but rarely have I seen a review sooo favorable.
Which calls it into question, along with many of the statements and behavior from the author.

But to be fair, 2 out of 3 Tesla review are kind of guilty of the same.

“In spite of delivery with a few dozen panel gap issues, a tear in the seat fabric, cracked paint, and the trunk not latching, we’d still have to give the M3 a 5 out of 5 because we are driving the future”

Tesla Kia Chevy, Nissan. Its all good. With ranges all in the same ballpark, it comes down to personal preferences.

But we still need to realize that Tesla is $$ more money. I still find it unreal that so many seem to think the cars are on par due to similar MSRP. That is something I simply cannot understand.

Agreed. I had another 100 day mile ahead of me today, so I indulged and charged to 100%.

Per my earlier quote... please watch from minute 3 to minute 5. Y delivered with wires hanging out of the car, and a speaker literally fell off...but wow look at that glass roof.

Thank you for that! I watched from about 3 minutes to about 7. That's hilarious.

The interesting part is that Tom in the video used to be Mr. BMW i3 fan (dare I say fanboy?) and BMW would sometimes relay messages via him. I recall he installed some charging at his restaurant including a https://insideevs.com/news/327565/bosch ... a-at-9995/ and maybe some level 2 EVSE(s).
