It's hard to defend the EV when even pro-EV people aren't realistic about it. They think it will save the world and everyone will be loving brothers and sisters if we all drove EVs. Truth is, it's just another tool with some advantages and disadvantages alike. We can't ignore the disadvantages! It's not realistic and those who are against the EV will use that against them. I happen to think there are huge advantages to the EV, logistically alone!

But this goes for all those on both sides of any FAKE NEWS debate: if you can't be realistic and honest about your own point of view, you can't expect the other side to do so either.
Agreed and I can see some of the advantages. For instance EVs would work well for people with a short commute or someone that does a lot of city driving.

You have a good setup. EV for running around and ///M car for fun.

I love ICE cars and do not want Government getting involved In our lives (trying to ban ICE cars) like they are doing in Europe.

I'll be happy if consumers have both options.

Incredibly off-topic but do you know if the DTM/25AE rockers and front bumper work on a B7 S4 Avant? I imagine the front bumper will mount up without issue but the rockers may be different. Any idea?

I don't see why not but then again I've never heard of anyone trying. It shouldn't be too hard to see if the B7 S4 rocker panels have the same part number as the Avant. Afaik the 25Quattro bolts on to the sedan with no modifications just like the DTM.

If your VW was totaled, you were done a favor.
