    RasmusDC got a reaction from sub68 in Whats your dream car.   
    must admit i am a retro guy, and to be honest a retro guy that would like something that could be used as a daily driver..
     
    i love the ELECTRIC GTV.
     
    or a Singer 911 or perhaps the P1800 Cyan, but the GTV with a slightly tuned 5 cylinder from volvo would be a nice daily driver.
     
    but to be honest with me the importance was a "reasonable" engine, the P1800 with a racecar engine, nope, a singer with the 3xx hp. there was once a Pagode Mercedes, with the AMG63 driveline made by mechatronik that was also SO nice.

    love Red Dwarf when i was younger, was an excellent series, also loved firefly
     
    Tried the Expanse, and it seems to be a nice series, but the main cast, the crew of the rosanante, they just seem weak, there is no character in any of them, the only one with a bit of acting chops there, got written off, because of a off screen issue with sexual harrasment.. and that is fair.
     
    the fun thing is, of the full lenght movies of star trek with Patrick Steward, i think i like on of the most unpopular of them... i LOVE Insurrection, just from the calmeness the bit of detective work, and the protection of a species.

    it is a company lease... i pay full price for it, so it is actually as expensive as owning it myself, because i have no need for a company car, but if i loose my job or just leave, or anything goes wrong then it is not my problem.
     
    the Passat has a 3 year lease with a 1 year option, i was on the one year extension, i had to trade it in before october.. so had to find something.. the "new" passat was the SAME car, just with poorer interior (VW savings) cost me more, and with the same piss poor 1.4 driveline with the DSQ200 gearbox.
     
    so had to find something, the Tesla is an EXCELLENT first time driver, the first time you sit in this car, it is just a JOY to drive, and the acceleration, and even the Longrange dual motor, seems wicked fast.
     
    So my choice was in the "passat cost" to take either a "passat like car" for the same price, or go plugin hybrid or full electric because of the savings in denmark on these cars (it is humongous) an example is that a 150bhp BASE line DIESEL A6 is 580.000dkkr a TOP SPEC s-line prestige A6 50TFSE plugin with 300hp is 500.000
     
    so after driving the 330E which were the only real option (A6 was not on shop floor yet) it was easy to see that that car was best to drive in PURE electric mode, so we looked pure electric.. and the choice is meek. the E-tron in the premium spec is a bit too expensive, then all that is left is the KONA and the Niro.. which was a BIG step down from the passat (and when you have seen the EV6 and the Ionic 5) just really old, or the LR tesla.. so went tesla.
     
    I´m trying to get it returned, and just ordering a 50 TFSE or a EQC or something else full electric. just to get onwards.

    I´m learning, i think i was stupid enough to join the Tesla hype. 
     
    Needed a new car, the Passat were 3 years old, and it was time to do something, all taxes was removed from Electric cars in denmark.. (in a span of value, so REALLY expensive ones still are taxeted) and with the 150% taxation that is quite a saving..
     
    so a Model 3 LR fell from a "taxeted" cost of 760.000Dkkr to 460.000dkkr,  so i jumped on one, a new one delivered here in March..
     
    I don´t get people, i love my car number 2 a Petrol driven 200hp Polo GTI from 2019, i HATE my Tesla..
     
    * assembly quality is piss poor at best, and the fun part is i went through 80 cars on the lot, and all had the same issues, every panel is a bit off, not with the shutlines, which looks fine, but sticking out.
    * all bolts that are painted, has been touched at the Freemont plan, there are areas where brackets are, without paint, because the "trunk" was aligned after paint, doors where aligned and all other stuf.
    * my car was FILLED with black hands in the white interior, so it had to be deep cleaned by Tesla after delivery
    * crooked steering wheel needed a 4 wheel alignment, jumpy ride, got a new tire, and wheel alignment, did not fix it, had to go to an external shop to get it properly fixed.
     
    and so many more small issues, and the thing is.. it seems like i am one of the "lucky" customers that got a good car..
     
    No doubt Tesla has a really great software side, but the automotive part is poor, the fun thing here is, that this is not "lack of" ability to assemble a car, since it is systemic poor quality, it is obvious, that it is a design issue, of to many welds, that make the chassie skew, and generally just a car that is designed without the knowledge on how not to create these issues.
     
    fun the small things you also learn..
     
    * i HATE the navigation, not being able to run POI´s or multiple routes (and the Elon explanation of this is because he know better what "OPTIMAL" route i need to drive than i do, and of course i do not need to see other areas of the world) an example is us driving on vacation, "Elons" route 193KM, motorway 130km/h all the way, 10 minutes faster than the route i wanted to take, that was normal road... 90km/h 191Km .. the fun thing is here, that my route left me with 20% MORE battery left... 
     
    * And apprently i need to be a part of the TESLA "CULT" where i do not complain. 
     
    Trying to get rid of the car, and get a A6 55 TFSE. simply just hate it.

    I remember doing stuff for space travel in my younger days, that was a bigger dream for me than this. 
     
    JPL engineers, NASA employees, Space X. are a completely different league, being able to uncover something no on has ever tried before, and having no room for failure would be the dream.
     
    That type of job also sorts away weaker links, and people are like minded. (my guess)

    RasmusDC reacted to Falcon1986 in recreating my "unifi" controller with new hardware   
    The nice thing about Ubiquiti is that licenses aren't required for you to use their gear... Unless I'm misinterpreting what you mean by "remove all licenses".
     
    If you can, please update the UniFi Controller from both the old and new setup before running the Site Export Wizard.
     
    When you start the new controller on the UDM-Pro, adopt your devices again and everything should be up and running.

    2019 VW Polo GTI Manual 
     
    Both owned from new, ordered a Tesla Model 3 LR to kill the old Passat, since the Tesla is a Full Electric, and that is fully exempt from taxation here, and tax is aprox 150% on top of the price. so in theory it is a 76x.xxx Dkkr car (120k ish dollars) for 460 (75k ish)
     
    no pictures of the Passat on my phone, other than all the quality issues, the fun thing is, i am really not a fan of the VW group... wife loves the cars, they drive okay, but there are so many quality issues with them.
     
    YES i have bought a tesla, but to be honest, looking at youtube videos, the issues they have, are NOTHING compared to my Passat and Polo.

    RasmusDC got a reaction from Letgomyleghoe in Whats wrong with vegeterians?   
    the only ones visual in the enviroment is extremist, i know plenty of people that has a full vegaterian diet. some choose it because of health reasons some actually does not really have the taste for meats..
     
    none i know have a negative focus on the rest of us, i know one Vegan however and she is VERY extreme in what she does.
     
    To be honest, i don´t even consider them if we make a diner for a lot of friends, we make what we want, that is just how it is. when we visit them, we eat meat free.
     
    but there are elements like than in ALL areas, i remember the BIG thing in our city once, was that a cafe made a "childern free area" inside.. people with childern could sit outside, or in the back.. simply to give others some room. there was an EXTREME outrage, of moms breastfeeding in the door of the cafe, and trying to force people away.. this was even people that would NEVER eat at that cafe..
     
    to be honest, why not accept that some people don´t like childern screaming when they try to have a romatic diner, or just some food. 
     
    Everything for everyone today is "MY opinion" .. "MY lifechoice" no respect and acceptance, for some people, and to be honest, if you have any of these in your life, then simply cut them out.. they have NO value, if they cannot tolerate your opinion, or lifestyle

    RasmusDC got a reaction from gal-m in What is a lot of money to you?   
    it all depends on perspective, even though i don´t really like the guy, i saw a video from the VinWiki guy about what he felt was his defining metric of measuring wealth.. and for him, it was the amount of money that he could loose without it stressing him out..
     
    I personally have always focused on a bit of the same... setting myself in a situation where day to day expenses is not really a problem..
     
    if we get friends visiting, i´ve put myself where, i do what i want, when we have food, so maybe using 200-300 dollars on a good homecooked meal and something to drink, is not something, where i feel they have to "repay me" later.
     
    i remember (In DK where cars are amazingly expensive) buying a 1 year old car, that was a dealers car, so 4000Km, and still under warrenty, a 265.000dkk car that had a new price of 380.000dkkr, so a GOOD discount because it was a Mazda that really wasn´t anything anyone wanted (A Mazda 3 2.2 DE Premium sport 186HP diesel) in DK a decent car.. (this is many years ago)
     
    i remember HATING that car, and some dealer issues has just made me distrust the car, after 1 month i sold it with a 30.000dkkr loss (around 5000dollars) for me that really did not annoy me.. rather get rid of the issues, than fighting for a long time to make this work..
     
    talking electronics i think 500-800 dollars is not really a thing.. YES if it breaks i will use warrenty and stuff, i´m not throwing money away, but i have lots of things with that value, that really just stands in a cabinet.. should sell it... but i don´t really care.
