This is also a very salient point... Especially coming from a dude who pretends to have a tesla

Although prices and inflation and yadda yadda... You are NOT getting what you would think of as a $60k car. I paid $48k for mine and even that might've been a little too much.
Granted the S is better appointed and equipped, and it did just about justify it's $70k tag, but even that's swole up now.
Lmao my dumbass neighbor recently test drove a $50k Venza and commented that it felt a lot more premium than the $70k Model Y he has. Something like a GV70 can be had for mid to high 50s and will be a fuck ton more premium than the Model Y

Buffalo, NY. Again.
I'm kind of the opposite

Yes when you first get in a car with 11ty buttons is a little wtf and intimidating. But it's nice after 3 minutes of figuring out what everything is that you can just operate them by feel.

I had a 2021 pre-refresh Macan loaner recently that legit was the most flight simulator feel vehicle I've ever been in. But it's because a number of seat and climate control controls are duplicated on the passenger side so they can do it. But while driving I could turn on or adjust the cooled seats, soften the suspension or throw it in sport mode, and bump up the temp a little without looking down. After I got used to it after a few days I didn't notice the button mess until someone else got in and commented on it.

That being said I'm borrowing a friend's X7 since the beginning of the month while my kids are in town and the half digital controls half button controls in that thing are fucking needlessly complex. Tbh I don't even know how to see the odometer on the fucking thing and almost everything I do on it is counter intuitive. I fucking hate modern day BMW
Yeah, I'm not saying the Tesla is the best, there are ABSOLUTELY some things that are lacking (ESPECIALLY with the capacitive button on the fucking yoke) ... I'm just saying it's not as bad as it seems at first.

I agree. I like the physical buttons for things that are frequently changed. My Cayenne Turbo was like that and I loved it. Then went to a Model 3 which was the complete opposite end of the spectrum.

Brought the X in because the left Falcon Wing Door is about 1.5mm misaligned when it closes.

The 2016 Model S 70D they gave me as a loaner is the most colossal piece of shit I've ever driven. The "Teslas are poorly built non-luxury cars" definitely applies to the older ones. My wife's 2013 S4 was (just sold it for a Model 3) nicer in every way, and probably faster, too.

I was at an arcade for a tournament yesterday and like 6 20-somethings that were introduced as the Tesla Boys paid to have the karaoke dj come in for a couple hours so they could make tik-tok videos of themselves. It was absolutely awful and my ears still hate me.








So which one of you was it :squint:

Alright boys. You guys are way more up on this shit than me. Are there any legit Tesla competitors yet? Performance-wise anyway?
