Wheels look fine to me.

Maybe this is more your thing Spot. It's an RS3 so an expensive car. Are the wheels big enough?

I too think the Alfa wheels look fine and in general proportion to the car.

So, a twist in the tail ...

It’s electric !!!

As I say, he cancelled his Tesla 3 order ...

I’m think the electric Jag, or an i3.

He works for a solicitors firm that specialises in green energy, so makes sense I guess .... although taking your clients out in a 5.0 Mustang would be classic !!!

I think it'll be one of the new Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaags. E-Pace? Is that what they are called? If Jaguar can get these out and made fairly quickly, it will hurt Tesla a little, but i doubt Tesla will be too concerned in the grand scheme of things, Jeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaag is still a relatively small player on the world stage.

P.S. - how can a solicitors firm specialise in green energy?

My brother gets involved in the legal work in and around wind farms ....

Buying land, planning, approval, selling them, etc, etc

At a different firm he used to specialise in buying and selling race horses .... loads of legal work around that apparently

Ah, cool. I thought he wasn't going to tell you!
He can merely ask Spot for his advice and experiences on the vehicle.

I disagree. My V8 loves animals and trees - ones that died millions of years ago and turned into oil. Also, in nearly 2 years of V8 ownership, I have not once run over a dolphin.....

A very good point. I feel it my civic duty to drive my car as much as humanly possible.

The fabulous weather we're all experiencing now is purely down to Hugh hooning around in the XFRse!

the i3 is brilliant!.........and he chose well going for the newer 94Ah and the range extender.......but.......sadly.........he will become miffed very quickly with the expected range against the actual range - its nowhere near inline with what Ze Germans say it will do.

wait til you feel the acceleration from about 20.....its super addictive (maybe that's why mine never got over 100 miles on a full charge Very Happy )

Indeed it is - I managed 14mpg on my way home from work the other evening - not for selfish entertainment reasons, but because I care about everybody.

I do think they look a bit....posing pouch.

I think the 1M looked better, more subtle but still beasty.
