    and they say BMW drivers are arrogant...


    http://www.teslamotors.com/customers/story-vernon-h
    apparently the Tesla Model S is the safest car on the road. Tesla put this vid on their website of one of their customers run-in with an E60 M5. the M5 driver was some retard teenager that zipped right through a stop sign in an intersection at night. the Tesla was clearly rolling though his stop sign as a proper stop is, look left, right, left again, assure you are stopped for at least 2 seconds and proceed. this guy was too busy paying attention to his passengers and rolled through the stop sign, and he SHOULD have seen (as well as heard, S85 is loud) the M5. what happens is the M5 barely misses the Tesla but the Tesla clips the guy in the rear panel, sending the M5 flipping and rolling and finally stopped by a tree. thank god BMW M builds solid cars, the kid came out bruised up and that's about it really. probably a concussion. nothing serious. no way am i condoning this kid's reckless behavior, he had what was coming to him. but the driver of the Tesla is partially at fault as well.

    everyone knows hybrid owners are smug as $#@!. this guy is so convinced that the kid in fact hit him, and because of this small little clip his car is the safest thing to ever exist. "I am convinced that fortuitous timing and the solid construction of my Tesla Model S saved our lives, the lives of another couple and prevented four young children from being orphaned." really? M5 took the flips and rolls and tree hit like a champ.

    Most people who say things about BMW drivers are just jealous they're not the ones driving the BMW, they just don't want to admit it. I also wouldn't say people with BMW's drive like idiots anymore than other people, it just so happens our cars handle better than most so yeah, we can change lanes like a boss if we really feel like it. Plus, people love BMW, they really do, if they didn't, then why would they bother paying attention and telling stories about their run-in with a douchebag BMW guy again?

    Tesla...I'm just not sold yet on electric cars. I think the biggest issue I have is all this focus on bringing transportation pollution down when personal transportation vehicles are such a small percentage of what "pollution" is actually caused my fossil fuels. Most of the fossil fuels in the United States is used to power our homes, not our cars. Dumbasses like this Tesla owner think they are smarter than everyone cause they drive an electric car....no buddy, you're just a schmuck.

    The Tesla Model S is pretty sick though.

    If they give it another electronic motor up front for an 800 hp all wheel drive with instant torque...

    Holy sh*t, no doubt he was seriously flying. If the Tesla would have rolled through that intersection 2 or 3 seconds sooner that poor guy might not be here.
