Thanks for indulging me with answer. I could of responses.
- So this is all acceleration related, which is clearly a benefit that I've read from every single person who's driven a reasonably powerful Tesla.
So this is the most interesting part to me. The steering ratio is quite tangible for sure----but is there any feel? I LOATHED the steering on my mustang after a while. I'm not a fan of it on our Tucson either. The steering in the M3 isn't the second coming, but it's a bit more communicative than the other cars mentioned. How about the resistance of the steering? Sometimes steering with a perfect amount of effort can make up for a lot, IMO. What do you like about the chassis? Does it understeer? Is there body roll? Is it fun to push into turn? What are the options for loosening up the stability control? How does the car handle mid-turn disruptions (either bumps or acceleration)? I believe the CG is pretty low on these, but I don't recall reading much about the specifics of the chassis.
- The heavy regen allowing you to mostly utilize one pedal driving. This feels great and you wonder why isnt this standard.
- The steering ratio is 10.3:1. Super quick. I cannot find another vehicle with steering this quick. The car feels more agile and sporty than what is usual for the segment. Some folks do not like this though.
- The suspension is sportier than what people are used to in that segment.
- In pictures, the interior looks too spartan. You sit inside and you get it. Very Scandavanian interior. Like a future Volvo. The screen is brilliant.
The comparatively spartan interior definitely isn't a problem for me. Though I'm not sure if I would like to live with the huge tablet on the dash.
The way I'm reading this, driving a TM3 is basically like driving an i3 with 2-3 times the power. I liked how peppy the i3 was when accelerating to normal side road speeds (<55mph).You may read this list and say "yea sounds cool but so what" but its only when you take one for a spin, then you get it.
