My Car Makes Me Feel Stoopid

Needless to say this owner wasn't very happy with his X1.
However he's not happy with Tesla either. After reading this
I have my questions but i'll wait to read your comments.

I bought a BMW because it looked like the perfect combination of power and practicality.
Instead, I’ve end up hating BMW and will never buy another car from them.

The Tesla Saga:

Banned By Tesla!
Dear @ElonMusk: Thank you for reaching out to me. I heard from our phone conversation that you feel that my post,
“Dear @ElonMusk: You should be ashamed of yourself”, was a personal attack on you. I also hear that you are not
comfortable having me own a Tesla car and have cancelled my order for a Tesla Model X.

Update:

Despite the acrimony, it appears that Alsop is still a fan of the Tesla vehicles.

“Since we had our conversation, I looked around and realized that it is not possible to
buy the equivalent of or even a pale copy of the Tesla Model X (or Model S, for that matter),
which is real testament to how distinctive a product your company has produced,” Alsop wrote.
“Indeed, I’m likely to just keep driving my irritating BMW X1.”

This reportedly strange move by Musk follows an equally odd rumor that emerged last week that
claimed that Musk took a Model S set to be shipped to a customer for himself. Musk was allegedly
using it as personal vehicle to test Tesla’s autopilot feature, according to BGR.

TiAgX5 is on a distinguished road
I have a friend in Southlake TX with a Model S 85D, Tesla has picked it up with their "service transport" truck THREE TIMES because he has been unable to get in due to the door handles not extending during unlock process.

Even the best car in the world (online Tesla fanboy speak), is WORTHESS if you can't get inside it!

Elon Musk must have his head up his butt if he thinks a gullwing door SUV will save Tesla (different is NOT better Elon). Gullwing doors are for low/small sport coupes (easy access).

With gas under $2 & Audi entering the EV market with the E-Tron, the writing is on the wall for Tesla.

The Tesla vehicles are city/in town "look at me toys". I do regular runs between Coppell, TX and Spring Hill, FL (1100 miles) with a V8 E53, on ONE gas stop. The Tesla would need FOUR LONG recharge stops for this trip. It would need two recharge stops on a run from Dallas TX to El paso TX, one recharge stop from Detroit to Chicago!
