    Never had a customer come in and ask for a Nespresso. Don't expect I ever will, until you get here.

    Good story with the coffee here btw... the hill tribes started growing coffee here as an alternative to opium - lots of benefits in that, like not getting shot whilst getting the crop to market.

    I got this from a reader on quora

    What you call the bland nose of the Tesla Model 3 is a natural engineering progression. It contributes to one of the lowest coefficients of drag of any production car and contributes the natural beauty of function.

    A low Cd is a good thing, indeed. I would suspect that it could have been achieved with a range of 'looks'. This one suffers from the discontinuity I mentioned earlier.

    I do not mind the 3's grill-less nose. I think it looks decent enough. It's the bubbletopped roof that sours me on the car. I know it was meant to seat a wide range of folks, but that roof needs to be about 2 or 3 inches lower

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Are you thinking of the Model X suv with the "falcon" doors?

    My co-worker's, in white. He took the aero wheel covers off and added a trim kit, looks better like that. To me it is the nose, looks odd, but I see so many now I'm getting used to it.
