Every Tesla Model 3 should have this bolt-on body kit

Only last week did I say that Tesla could do with a tuning arm, then I see this on Top Gear's twitter feed.

Electric cars: New vehicles to emit noise to aid safety

As silly as this sounds sometimes, as an EV driver (of sorts), at low speeds it's very annoying that pedestrians won't move out of the way because they don't know you're there. The safety angle is of course far more important though.

How this border transformed a subcontinent

Here in the UK, the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 have covered India's independence fairly well over the past 10 years and I know more about it than I ever thought I would, but there's so much to the story.

I had no idea about this 'second' site of importance to Sikhs. I visited the Golden Temple 10 years ago, although if I had known, there's little chance I would have had to make that journey to see it.

'Eating Animals' trailer

I came across this on an episode of the BBC's film review podcast. Sounds like really interesting viewing. I'm a big meat lover, but have a greater appreciation behind the sentiment of going vegan.

Jony Ive to form independent design company with Apple as client

Jony Ive has collaborated on a number of products with Marc Newson before, so not a surprise that they've decided to embark on a joint venture. The collection that stands out most in my mind was their Product (RED) auction where they sold a one of pair of rose gold AirPods.

The title really should have been 'Jony Ive is to leave Apple', John Gruber has a good take on it all, as usual.

Tesla Model 3 vs Merc-AMG, BMW M3 & Alfa Giulia QV drag race

The thing that struck me most watching this on Top Gear this past weekend was how ordinary the Model 3 looks. It's a serious machine and does not appear anywhere near as attractive at the other three in the lineup. Performance may be very good by standard but Tesla are in need of a tuning arm.
