    The BMW M5 is $50k more that the fully loaded P85D, no prizes for guessing which car Stephen would rather own. Keep watching till the end of the video.
    Enjoy.

    As always the comments below the article make for interesting reading. First post accuses the Tesla of being a play thing for millionaires. Which part of "the Tesla is 50k cheaper than the M5" did they not get....?

    What is it with "journalists" that means they don't understand a lot of the things they review. While this was a really positive review I still was annoyed when they said that the brakes were not conventional. For some reason they think that the regen is somehow linked to the brakes, when we all know that they are simply Brembo brakes and regen on the drivetrain.
