    Is there a Tesla option if I’m not trying to hump a woman out of my league or pretend I’m Batman?

    Tesla serve a purpose, the Criminal California Politicians will continue to raise gas.. For their own pockets. They don't care about the Environment, California has more regulations than anywhere else in America and still one of the worst air standards. People need to stop drinking the Kool Aid.. Research John Coleman, founder of The Weather Channel.. You will be shocked at the Truth behind this Global Al Gore Mansion Living, Jet Flying Warming Bullcrap😒😡😎✊

    Stress to your wife how nice it will be in a hot (think Florida) or cold (think Minnesota) climate . Paint the picture of how nice it will be after two hours of shopping to summon your car to the store entrance with the interior temperature at 70 degrees. Sold American!

    I've taken my Raven MX on two road trips over 1700 miles, one road trip at 1600+, and three other road trips at just under 800 miles since June. So far, zero range anxiety.. trusted the trip planner. Yes, Super charging isn't comparable to quickly gasing up.. but neither is driving a gas car in any way comparable to the miles driven in an EV due to comfort features and safety <3. It's a trade off, in my opinion an easy one to make!

    I just went to the Nashville store and did a test drive.. amazing experience just hanging out there and talking to people. It is extremely different from a dealership, probably because they don't work on commission and a lot of people there like there jobs. Great video

    "Oh in a few years"
    I totally agree with that approach. Save and invest so you earn interest/dividends and even capital gains, then buy when you have the money. Rather than borrowing and paying interest. F that. Treat your money like its precious and youll have more. Dont pay more if you can pay less, especially for the same product. And in 10 years time, 20 years, you'll be in a far better place than spending so much of your wage on interst

    This is weird. I didn't "convince" my wife about getting a Tesla. I just showed my natural excitement and enthusiasm and she was obviously on board because there was never a doubt that we would be getting one.

    Hey Ben, your subject is "What My Wife REALLY Thinks about Owning a Tesla" It is mostly you talking. Your wife is articulate and it would be helpful to hear what she says. We already hear from you. This would turn my wife off. Why don't you do a spot with just your wife speaking without you leading her. Just a friendly suggestion. Thx Mark

    Will never buy until the price comes down. We don't pay over $22K for ICE, so the value proposition doesn't work. A car is just a way to get from A to B, so don't care about bells, whistles, acceleration, or looks. Safety is a thing, but not worth the capital investment.

    Jenny's comment at 2:05 hit it on the head with us, my wife is still apprehensive to drive our one-month-old Model 3. I think I need to just drop her in the deep end.

    PS Can you answer this question for me?
    I recently followed the advice of Trevor @ Tesla Owners on-line to install a Samsung T5 SSD as a music server/TeslaCam. Everything is working, however… Most of my music files are Apple lossless or AIFF. A small percentage are AAC (a small step above MP3 in quality). All of these files play back through the Tesla just fine on my iTouch via BlueTooth. But through the USB connected Samsung T5, the Tesla connection will not recognize the AIFF data (AAC plays back fine). Is there a workaround? I really don't want to reenter all of this material into iTunes through the lower quality AAC, since I use this music on other devices. Am I doomed to listen to music in the Tesla by tying up my BlueTooth connection? Thanks.

    I love your vids and this series is helping with my wife. I am in the market looking for a Model S used and looking to get one but my concern is I want one with enhanced autopilot which I believe is autopilot Hardware 2.o or 2.5. If I am wrong let me know, but when did Tesla start putting those in the Model S? What production years should I be looking for? On the the used Tesla site I just keep seeing autopilot with convience features.

    One selling point that will help me convince my wife to buy a model 3 is being able to cool the car while in the store. It will be so nice to go to a car that is already nicely cooled down on a 115 degree day in the Arizona desert. I could see her sit up and look interested when I talked about this feature. The navigation is another feature that will help convince her.

    On the range anxiety. It's a mind thing. You only get it if you flirt with Empty. I used to do that with a Saab Turbo, way back, because I wanted to explore the reserve. I once even chuffed onto a petrol forecourt with the last vapours of fuel. Just don't go anywhere near that 0% and there's no range anxiety.
    Nice video, pepys.

    Living in Copenhagen, wife goes: "I'd like to visit Amsterdam and London. Can we plan a holiday?"
    Me: "I'd really not like to fly too much anymore."
    Wife: "Why don't you buy a Tesla then?"

    Here is something to think about. I never go 300 miles to a fill up in my BMW M3 (16.6 gallon tank 15 mpg….max). So right around the maximum of SR+. So I wonder how many people out there are getting less miles per tank than the duel motor's range?

    Picked up my new X LR a week and a half ago. We went over the car in and out. In total, it took about an hour so yeah, I had a very good delivery experience. The car was flawless. 3 days later I had it wrapped with XPel coating. Ceramic coating (CQuartz) will happen in the next 5 weeks.

    I’m looking forward to when the model 3 sport long range is available as a cert pre owned. That’s what I’m hoping will be my next car.

    Wow I think she nailed it. As a single person most people probably wouldn’t even look at it because of the cost. People just need to experience the car, test drive it and it’ll truly change your mind. These cars are amazing, and ahead of any others out there.

    2:19 'Extravagance' ,…she points out she was worried the car would be too ostentatious… whereas Ben is proud of a finer car. Women are about minimizing conflict or emotional stress socially and a woman would ask herself if her friends and neighbors might feel bad that she has such a nice car. Men: Because women chose mates based on male hierarchy and rank, men will seek to reach a higher status. The issue is to find and keep a mate so he can father children. The car raises him in the hierarchy.

    I bought one for myself a few years ago and told the wife after the fact! Lol boy was she pissed but after she drove it and took over for her daily car I’m now trying to get her to agree to trade in our big longhorn dodge for another one but she is fighting me on it because we need the size of the truck for the kids. Wish Tesla comes out with a truck 1.5 ton size crew cab size soon because she is pushing me towards the Rivian which I do not want. Tesla is my main brand I want to stick with!

    Usability is sometimes the top issue. I have a couple friends with medical issues they have to deal with. So seat feel and ease of entry is a big deal. Some have a dog so durability is high. Initially cost and monthly cost are always top.

    I started with a $30,000 budget for a new car. I decided I could add $5,000 because of the reduced monthly costs. Then researching crash avoidance and safety computer was worth $10,000. But the Prius fulfilled most of that. And model 3 was still a bit more. So I admitted to my self that I would spend another $10,000 for political and environmental reasons. That put me at $55,000. In 2018 and Washington 10% tax we were just barely to a long range. Almost did that but did some final research on AWD so I added the $4000 to afford that. So we are done. Nope my spouse said Red and 19” wheels and I added aftermarket 18” wheels and snow tires.

    All said and done it caused us to not spend money other places and we rolled the whole thing into a 15 year house refinance. The largest snowstorm I ever saw the next January made me very happy to have the dual motor and insanely awesome traction control.

    Then in 2019 they gave us Full self driving to try for 30 days and they got $8500 more from us since it doubled how long I could drive by my self.

    If we are still driving it in 20 years it was a good financial decision. If not. O well it was great fun so far.

    The Biggest car is not always the safest. Excellent statement Jenny. It is really hard for people to acknowledge that.

    I bought the P3D and my husband loves it. He was a lifelong stick shift sports car guy. He drives my car whenever he can. Getting his own X next.
