"EV QUEST" - the Song, the Jingle!

I thought it was time EV Quest had a song/jingle. So here it is - the EV Quest song/jingle

Was fun to make. It brought back memories of all these reviews.

Listen and enjoy, cringe or wonder why - Adrian. I’m willing to tour it!

This is the BMW i4 eDrive 40, rear wheel drive, gran coupé.  It's an EV I've wanted to test drive for a long time. In New Zealand, there's also available the smaller battery eDrive 35 and the higher spec eDrive 50. 

In this podcast I'll be checking out the i4's:
✅ Exterior

New Tesla Model 3 2024 review- What do I think? What does my dad think?!

New Tesla Model 3 2024 review- What do I think? What does my dad think?!

Tesla Model 3 Highland has been out for a while but today I finally got to check it out.  And for more review, reviewing I brought along my dad. But you won't be seeing him much on camera. 🤣

Updates included the reworked nose, new headlights, new body panels, updated taillights, redesigned rear face sheer. Does look better than the previous model and the deep blue metallic paint is a winner.

We're both impressed by the more aerodynamic exterior styling. ✅
