    2018 BMW 330i, any recommendations?

    Test drive a Tesla Model 3 first <img src="/forums/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="smile" title="smile" height="15" width="15" /> it will make that BMW feel very old. BMW 3 series is the most switched from car for Model 3s. Ive had many BMWs, and I'll never own another. They fall apart.

    Tesla Model 3 Owners Only - Thoughts?

    One week in, and I couldn't be happier with the car. Makes me wonder I didn't switch to BEV sooner. Wife and I are already talking about replacing our Mini with a Model Y in a couple years.

    Took delivery today. Love it I think the writing is on the wall that BEVs are the future and will be here to stay. Massive investments from all concerned parties are happening now and in the pipeline. It will take time, as all things regarding transportation changes take time, but the ball is...

    Well said, although the gap will continue to narrow as infrastructure builds out, charging speeds increase, and battery density increases. Only a matter of time.

    Also just realized I can charge the Model 3 on my existing garage circuit (dedicated 20 amp, NEMA 5-20) at 7 miles per hour. That is plenty for now. Delivery is "within 2 weeks"! I'm also getting 10k miles (or 1 year) of free supercharging.

    The 2019 Audi e-tron

    It's a good looking car (except the ugly fake grill) and will sell well to existing Audi owners due to it being very similar to ICE Audis. However, it is quite inefficient and lacking in range compared to a comparable Tesla.

    Geothermal and hydroelectric run all day and night, and California (and North America as a whole) have plenty of both. Those are the two we should be pouring resources into, in my opinion, as they don't require storage and have extremely long service lives.

    Thanks Jeff and others for the relevant comments. I'm going in for another test drive today with wife and baby to make our final decision. Regarding solar, it doesn't really pencil-out here in Oregon for a few reasons: power is cheap (and we pay extra for 100% renewable... about $3-6 more per...
