On the other hand, how much time do you want me to spend on this task? How far back in the ~1,190 posts do you want me to go to weed things out??

I suspect they just mean the digression in posts 1166-1189.

As a non-side note: I finally rode in a Model 3 last week.

Things I liked: performance, body gaps looked nice and even, glass roof didn't feel hot even though it was sunny midday, plenty of room in the rear seats, frunk . The rear trunk opening was a lot better than I thought it would be. Screen has a set of static icons across the bottom that don't move and always do the same thing. Like buttons. Aluminum hood was nice.

Things I didn't like: too much on the screen (the vent controls especially?), the rear seats weren't that comfy, the brake fluid reservoir is hidden under plastic cladding under the hood, and no option for smaller wheels than 18" with correspondingly larger rubber. The "aero" wheels are actually just regular non-aero alloys with a fairly flimsy feeling hubcap.

The 12v battery is apparently under the same plastic cladding in the trunk. Not great for access, but much better than BMW with the i3 (WHY???).
