    Somehow I had never seen this video before.
    These people (from CleanTechnica) were not going for a test ride, but instead were standing at various spots along the test drive route, taking video & pictures. These provide some nice, different angles of the cars.

    @MelindaV said it was one of her favorite. I didn't see it either till she posted it.

    I have seen this one, but it's not the one I mentioned as a favorite ;) at least the one I am thinking of is ride alone one with Doug Field (the one with MotorTrend I think)

    I did, @garsh , yet thank you very much for posting it today... it's been so long already and I can't get tired of seeing both alphas driving back and forth... The car was a real beauty as is so it's fine by me if they didn't change anything besides the tweak to make the trunk more accessible.
    Maybe it's just me but I was getting the impression the matte black was accelerating a bit faster coming out of the gate... I thought the two alphas had the same battery size, no?

    it's probably just the difference in the driver. I can guarantee I would take off slower than @Red Sage would in an equally optioned car
    (antidotal based on prior comments by RS's of passengers fearing for their life)

    I swear... I have never killed a passenger... yet.

    Strange thing is...? My Buddies are all much wilder drivers than I am... And I feel just fine when they are behind the wheel.

    I love the lights and fog lights. Nice and bright. With so many daytime videos and reviews, I was wondering what the lights looked like.

    Thanks.
