    That was funny when he opened the armrest and found a Roadster VDS screen inside!

    Lots of interesting detail, but the video quality is pretty horrible.

    Probably a temporary engine that drives the trunk-opener. Would be crazy if this would be the 'normal' sound.

    It sounds like opening a very old coffin...

    It is about the same as my wife's Mercedes GL450. The noise did not bother me.

    Keep in mind those are *prototype* motors...and almost certainly will not be used in the final version.

    Not sure I understand. This looks like it's still the prototype.

    Yes, but why should they drop multi touch if they already have it? There are no joysticks or other control-buttons for zooming in map mode....so multi touch is a helpful feature ;)

    I'm pretty sure it will have multi-touch.
