Nov 4, 2019
First (mainstream) test of Model 3 (not sure which version) on Fifth Gear tonight at 21.00 on Quest.../ VBH reviewing..... should be interesting!

I was waiting for VBH to turn up at the end and point out to Jason and Karun that the all the cars in the "Cayman" group test (inc. the Audi TT and BMW Z4) cost over £50k and were all (in some cases a lot) slower to 60mph than the TM3.

I know that the TM3 isn't considered to be a sports car, but it would have been interesting to see how it measured up against those "best in class" cars.

Also, at £25k more, the Merc comparison was a little unfair.

Also2, if VBH can't get even start in the right "gear" (and there's only two to choose between!) can we be sure that the SoC was high, the battery warmed and all performance modes were correctly set. i.e. "Track Mode" selected and "Range Mode" off ? (Top Gear, I'm looking in your direction !)

Why is she driving a left-hand-drive NL-plate on UK roads ... does it really take that long for TV to get a piece onto the airwaves that this happened months ago - before June UK launch even? Dash shows 20C @ 17:15, plenty of leaves on the trees, clearly wasn't yesterday.

No wonder New Media is a threat ... Film today, Broadcast tomorrow ...

Or you can just watch it on their YouTube channel.

I would love to see her claim of "two elephants can stand on the glass on the Model 3" put to the test.

So this glass is either insanely strong or randomly cracks by itself as lots of people reported it?
