I ordered a Tesla model 3 SR in April and I am able to take delivery this weekend, however I’m now unsure of whether it’s the right move financially. I have a lease on a 2020 BMW X3 that will end next month and was wondering if I should just buy that out and drive it for a few years. If it makes a difference I’m in SoCal so gas is $$$, but no EV charging in my apartment.

Tesla: $830/month + charging and insurance
BMW: $600/m + $150 gas + maint/insurance

Any thoughts? Is the Tesla worth it?


I am currently serving my notice period ending on October 5 in the company "A" But my fnf is supposed to take place somewhere between 15-25 November.

Meanwhile, I am supposed to join somewhere else, let's say company "B" on October 12. As fnf at firm A is supposed to take place around November 15-25, will they release my UAN number.

I just wanna be sure the final fnf date does not cause any issue with my employment at Company "B"

Please someone explain.

Is this a good idea? A searchable database of men who belong in the ‘men are trash’ category. This would be for men who are guilty of high crimes against women - STDs, violence, theft, being married, hiding kids, cheating.
There’s a platform where women can submit the name of the man that hurt them, evidence of the hurt and it can be verified and the names of the men will come up, the grievance that was verified but no details.
