VW had about 1000 test cars for ID3. Audi had about 400. Taycan had 600.

It's ok to be skeptical. Doesn't change anything.

Not the engine but the WHOLE CAR

"don't release a car that has not clocked 10 million kilometers and two winters"

And this is combined testing miles. Not 1 car.

Most ICE engines can do 1M mile in a "short time". Specially in the lab.

1M mi / 60mph = 16.7k hours = 694 days

He bought it from Tesla that way. It wasn't lowered to the floor. Nothing extreme.

I see tons of suspension failure with the Model S. Something is wrong there with the build quality.

So I tested it. It was still loosing pressure slightly when it was empty. But once I filled it up, it kept 1.7bar nicely for like 10 minutes.

Everything works and looks normal now. Oil is clean,...

I don't get this logic either. Only obvious issues surface right after purchase. Hiddens remain hidden until they cause an issue. A visible cracked frame suggests there is more under the hood.

Tesla got away with many things without recalls. Battery issue is a clear example of that. Model 3 missing/loose suspension bolts. I guess this latter stayed under the radar because there aren't many...

Still factory bushings.

This cracking issue happens to manuals and M3s. Rare to see them on automatics as these latter build up the torque smoother.

Yeah, that subframe cracking is horrible. Usually seen on cars of 10+ years old, rather 15.

Meanwhile Tesla doesn't have issues with delivering cracked new cars

It already behaves the way I like from the factory. So can't care less about OTA. Tesla needed OTA because they want to ship beta versions years before the design is completed.

I have active sway bars on the 550i. Has no tilt in the curves. Even this car feels better than the Model 3.

I don't know how to describe the difference. I feel more in control.

They do compare. I drove the 2018 M3 and the Model 3 perf around the same time when they came out. M3 handles much better. The only pro for the Model 3 was the acceleration. Rest is a meh.

Timing error is likely when the chain tensioner breaks.

The engine was running on lower oil pressure though. That's not fun.
