    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    Assurances mean tulipe. It's not like a manifesto commitment.

    Which also mean tulip. How many of the points in the Tory manifesto have they reneged on? To use a cliche, there are only 3 certainties, birth, taxes and death...
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Default Electric Cars - are they worth it? (potential tesla buyer)

    Hello,

    I am on the verge of buying Tesla - but before I do so, I want to make a deep research about electric cars in general so I started forum research, as I believe here I can find real opinions of real people.

    Any of you guys have had any experience with EC?

    I am concerned with range and repair costs. From what I have found in various sources decent EC guide here - https://www.startrescue.co.uk/breakdown-cover/motoring-advice/motoring-developments-and-the-future/the-electric-car-cheat-sheet--2017 - I will be able to drive 100-150 miles fully charged depending on the model.

    Is it really that bad? Or in other words, do you think I will feel the difference?

    Second concern, perhaps even more important - repair costs. I have seen guys saying they needed to pay like £9000 for a minor scratch - https://forums.tesla.com/forum/forums/insane-cost-repair-teslas-achilles-heel

    I know this isn't exactly EC forum, but I am trying to collect as much information as I can. Any advice or comment regarding above issues would be appreciated."
