So Trump drives a Palluride into a bar. The bartender asks, why didn’t you just lease a $600 a month Velar?

If this doesn’t do it, I don’t know what will. :slight_smile:

trump would drive a palluride b/c the DRLs match his skin color.

DP: I got my car in MA. Registration took ~8 weeks start to finish. If everything runs smoothly it could be ~5 weeks but I wasn’t rushing (for my own reasons). Remember no temps in MA.

Shipping with v reputable transport broker was ~$900 for a sedan from NYC to Miami, though should be a bit less now that less people are moving down here, but obviously more from MA to Miami.

Some suggestions from the internet

*the pictures here are provided as a joke. The makes / models are for joke demonstration purposes. The joke itself is that you can charge an EV if you bring a GAS generator with you. It is the posters understanding that one of the cars in the post includes a gasoline engine, and therefore does not require an external gas generator, however the picture came up on the initial search and seemed to have demonstrate the point. Additional research would have required time that the poster was not willing to spend on a joke.

I put a disclaimer in my post to remove the confusion.

If he was getting consistent 70mph the road had to be fairly empty. Noone outside of seniors go that slow on the turnpike in NJ. The NJ official driving motto is “If we all go 80 they can’t pull over all of us”


Oh how much I hate videos that could have been a radio broadcast. Point the camera outside, on the instruments, on something relevant to the video. Use 2 cameras for PiP. How do you talk about instruments and keep filming yourself? Show weather forecast that shows winds at the time, something useful.

I can honestly say I don’t care about the range at all and even less so in a Bolt of all things (haven’t driven American in 20 odd years, and unless something really changes not planning to start). Until EVs can be charged in at least as many places as I can fuel an ICE car and at the same speed, it’s really irrelevant to me how far they can go on a single charge. When we take road trips, they are not planned around specific gas stations, they are planned around where we want to go and what we want to see. I don’t need to be held hostage by chargers that may or may not exist and when they do may or may not work. EVs are the future, but I’ll wait until others work out the kinks. I’m also going to wait until either all cars look like god awful shit (Hyundai EV, ix3,etc), or EVs will look like normal cars (eTron, id.4).

Forgot to add from the video. It’s 13mph an hour wind kind of headwind but not really, and the temperature is 64 degrees, which is a few degrees lower than he would like it to be for the range test. Pardon me, but are you effing kidding me? These are cars considered good for general release? I need a degree in meteorology to know if I’ll make it my destination.

no offense, and I will try to state it as mildly as possible, but I don’t care about EV opinions from anyone living in California. You guys seem to live in your own la-la land fueled by government sponsorship which then immediately gets negated by the completely outrageous taxation and cost of living.

I don’t need them to be in my neighborhood, I can charge at home (unlike millions of people who can’t), but I did check and there aren’t that many and the ones that are there seem to be in dealerships. There are giant spaces in the country where there is nothing at all. Also that map seems a little misleading as it lists private complexes, or at least so it seems at a glance

Great. That’s exactly when it will make sense, no reason for me to waste time and energy (haha) on it now. 10-15 years ago (don’t remember exactly) one of my friends was all about solar panels. The solar panels now are way better than his, the savings in electricity is nowhere near what he thought, because you know, NJ and the house is not turned exactly like it needs to be, but he has the badge of being an “early adopter”.

I’m all for other people being beta testers for EVs, killing themselves to test driving aids, etc. I’ll wait for production grade models.

Looking at the map the chargers exist where tourists go. I hate tourists, I want to go where locals go, screw the tourist traps. The best foods I’ve had, the coolest sites I’ve visited, and the weirdest people I’ve met were not on any map or tour guide. Noone puts chargers there unfortunately. The one place where this kind of backfired was Oahu though. Winding up in an area covered in posters of “kill all tourists” and similar, in a bright red wrangler was a bit scary :slight_smile:

If it makes you feel better, staten island is a dump (and I have good friends still living there, and they agree with that assessment even while living there), jersey shore is a cesspool (that can’t even be debated, that’s just an axiom of existence), and I stand by what I said about California in general. I’m a big fan of an idea of selling California to Mexico or pretty much anyone who wants the headache (and no, I’m not a member of the party that you just thought I am). You being offended has no relevance to me whatsoever.

They’ll probably delete my posts soon enough, everything I say is considered an assault on someone’s sensibilities. I’m kind of surprised Ursus didn’t materialize yet, I’m sure he’ll be along soon enough

Why is that funny? It was a very professional F U, and much better than some other dealer responses we’ve seen around here.

If you thought that was amusing, do I have a video for you

That makes me feel… oh wait it doesn’t.

Also, you sir are a liar. There are at least 2 posts that you liked:

You may go an remove the likes to make your current statement true.

Why are you still here? I POLITELY asked him why is this funny, he decided to be a dick.

For the record, Funniest/most ridiculous dealer replies you've ever gotten - #565 by john6866 same question from another user, why don’t you jump down their throat as well.

And why did ignore expire and I see your posts again? Need to set it for longer this time.

But, but…

Actually, you liked a lot more of my posts :joy:

I was talking to chris, not you. You seem to have a bigger problem with me than I do with you.

Huh? I quoted your response to Chris since it is exactly what you implied about me: you called him a liar for liking your posts. So, I turned the tables on you.
It seems that everyone here has a problem with you, btw.
