Photon Red FE in SF Bay Area
Black/black inside. 20" wheels, so a stock FE in red.
My wife drove it home and didn't kill anybody. The car is fast, comfy, and gadget filled. I drove it on our canyon road and had a blast. It's not a lightweight sportscar, but it definitely handles GT-like. The ride is smoother than our other vehicles, too. The stereo is a solid piece, but nothing amazing. 5k in the aftermarket is what it takes for that, no matter the car.
Issues? The dealer didn't stow the tow hook nor install the nav system USB drive. Also they had all tires at 50psi, which I fixed at home. Otherwise it's awesome.
I'm really impressed by the standard FE seats. The lumbar goes farther than I want, which is unusual. They hug me just fine for the twisties. The thigh support extends way far out. The steering wheel comes out farther than most cars. There's still plenty of room behind my 6' body for a passenger.
My goodness does the car accelerate! I love the one pedal driving. I got a timely warning arrow when I did a double lane change and got right behind somebody. The HUD is a must-have. No creaks or rattles.
This one is for the wife. In a year or two, we'll see how the EV market is. I can see us getting a second I-Pace. I wanna try a Taycan, though. No rush. I'll drive my RAM in the meantime.
