New Car

After two years and two months of waiting, I finally got the call and was able to pick up my Model 3. There's lots of sensationalist stuff in the news about Tesla lately, so I wanted to share that the cars are real and super fun. I know at least a few Wing Commander fans who are big EV people, so I figure there's probably a few more out there who would be interested in the pictures too. And for anyone thinking about picking up an electric car, I would highly recommend it!

That is an amazing smile, I don't think I've ever sported a smile like that.

Car is nice too.

You know, now that you mention it, I'm not sure I've ever seen a ChrisReid photo without that smile :). I think it's a trademark.

I was pretty happy to finally sign everything over! The Model 3 doesn't have ludicrous mode, but it's still about three times faster than my old car. Just washed it for the first time and the roof has a crazy color effect when wet due to the tint/filtering.

Yeah, I got solar panels installed a while back and had them route a 240 volt NEMA 14-50 at the same time.

There's no engine, since it's a Tesla, just bonus storage space and a large crumple zone under the hood. No oil changes, spark plugs, belts, etc. The one cap there in the picture is for the only fluid you can add - for the windshield cleaner.

It's excellent. Can't imagine going back to any other type of car now. Software updates keep adding new features so it's even better than it was two years ago.
