Well we are all different and have different body measurements, height, build and weight. What is comfy for one might feel like a bad of nails to another. And for me doing a little inspired driving on that 8 hour drive, with European standard for roads with twist and turns every 100 yards, sliding around in a leather seat with no side support was not a good experience.liveforphysics wrote:As a guy who has sat in the drivers seat of a Tesla Model S for >12hrs a day for a few days in a row, I have no idea what folks are talking about with respect to them being uncomfortable.
I have never experienced a more comfortable driving experience, and this is coming from a guy who has driven Rolls Royce's and Bentley's etc.
If you don't want a stupid fast car that doesn't spew carcinogens into the faces of everyone around you, you're always free to choose some dinosaur powered hunk of shit to drive.
Well luckily the seat issues is more or less mute, Four Sixteen is a proof of concept that shows the sensors and airbags will work even after you take your seats to be tailor made. But it shouldn't have to be that way. There should just another thick in a box in the contract. Boom. Here is your optional seats. In fact, the highest earnings any car manufacturer have is on their option list. Last E-class I had it was like 6K $ extra to get the bigger screen for the navi. Inside there where electronics for like a 100$. When customers enter the showroom and are in a shopping mood - pls let them shop. That is salesman 101.
Btw why are so many Tesla owners getting all defensive when others have negative comments of any part of the car? It feels for me like many owners means you either gotta love it like your firstborn with all its flaws and praise it nevertheless or bugger of from the scene and go drive some old gasoline gulper.
I've had many cars over the years. Mostly sedans or station wagons and mostly european brands. With all kinds of engines. Some fully loaded others not so much. Bu tI can honestly say that I have never felt the need to take the stand for any car I ever owned. Some guys hated the 535 diesel I had. Claiming it was too good a car to be stuck with a diesel. Couldn't care less. I do like the BMW high revving straight 6 petrol engine sound. But that sound i snot a deciding factor when getting an everyday car. With all the driving I did at the time a diesel was a better choice for me.
I was in the Norwegian Tesla showroom once, asking for the 4wd version, to try to confirm all the rumors floating. And I actually got ripped a new a hole by two Tesla owners strutting the showroom. They got all mad and told me if I didn't like it I could just fuxx off and get another car, then they made jokes about ICE and had a good time. What a couple of ass wipes. Sad thing is I got so totally shocked by their "attack" that I could not say anything.
Edited: Oh damn what a long rant. Bros don't drink and post. I did and look at it.
