So glad my wife has, if anything, a weirder and wider taste in cars than I do, no such "testing and approval" process required.I disagree it looks nicer, its a radical design, and that has to pass the WAG factor, explain to your partner why it has gull wing doors. The Model S looks like a normal car, and therefore is easier to explain to the other half
We have various forms of these scattered around our house.The 'trick' is to avoid getting married and make the 1970s KEFs part of the deal
Having owned many MINIs (big, long doors, low seating position) and having had kids in car seats in other cars too, regular "swing" doors are a pain... but we just accept it's what you get with a car, so we work around it (and get lots of door dings from those who can't seem to cope/bother, the swines!).With regular doors you can often slide out if a car has parked too close. Not always true but most of the time. Withdoors that go up you have to be able to fully open them to get out. Fine in a supercar when you don't drive it to the shop[s but most of the time not a good idea IMO.
Sliding is the best for access certainly.
