That's awesome. He gets a few things wrong, but I guess you can't fault him for not knowing as much about the car as we do:

"And there are some places where you can see the cost-cutting, like in the rear trunk, where there’s no trim panel up top, just bare metal and cutouts for the speakers that would be there if you had ordered the premium sound system"

from the article:
I’d get the enhanced autopilot to ensure my participation in the self-driving future and skip the rest.

Pretty sure the author would be participating even if he didn't purchase EAP. Cameras and sensors are collecting telemetry as long as he's opted in in the settings.

I find it Ironic that mechanics vote this car so highly, especially as EV's need lets maintenance and servicing.
Lots of mechanical components in EVs. Pumps, fans, suspension, brakes, etc...so lots mechanical things to fix on EVs. Service/Maint yeah...lower...but mechanical components still to break down.
