    I think my issue was the way your experiences were presented as factual knowledge about a car that we don't have all the info on.

Me suggesting that it looks like a bad prop from Steel Dawn? That's an opinion. Hate it all you want; I have no more standing to make that statement than you do. I'm not even going to be upset if you buy one. I have a friend who's a graffiti artist - he wants one because what he sees is blank canvas.

Me? I've never seen a wrap that looks good. And "It's okay, you can cover it in wallpaper" doesn't seem like a compliment to me. But again - that's opinion. Some people love wraps. I've never met them, but surely they exist. Their opinion is every bit as valid as mine. More so as they generally pay for wraps.

My issues with stainless? Presented as experience with material that has been commercially available for over a hundred years, that has been used in car bodies before. My issues with Tesla's fit and finish? I got two buddies with 3s and another with an S. I seen it. My issues with Elon Musk calling "not-body-on-frame design" revolutionary? I mean... every Honda, Toyota and Nissan out there for fifty years but whatever.

Your issue is that I disagree with you so I must be wrong. Opinions can differ but facts know no master. Go ahead and attack my opinions - I have no basis to argue they're more valid than anyone else's. But if you're going to attack my facts, you have to do more than dislike them. You have to disprove them.

You're the one that should be disproving the evidence. There is video evidence of the cybertruck being hit with a sledgehammer and not denting and yet here you are stating that the car is going to show door dings and I am supposed to believe you because of a myriad of mildly relevant reasons.
