I dunno. The whole car has a goofy space ship vibe. That's what you're buying into with this thing.

I like the blue a lot. Looks a bit like E46 Orient Blue.

yeah, but I'd say the only thing I like about that car is the color. Almost like when Keith Richards was asked about a song . . ."I liked everything but the words and music"

I know I'm painting a picture with a very broad stroke, but isn't just the fact that it is a lithium battery mean it could catch fire?
