What does everyone think about the Model S doors? Did you notice there's no frame around the glass. I guess I have to open and close the door a few times when I test drive it again to see how I like or dislike it. Older cars that I have been around always had an unstable feel in my opinion (rattle when you close it, can't really push on the glass to close it, etc). Any other comparable car (BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Lexus, etc) that is NOT a convertible usually has a door with a frame. It just seems more practical and solid to have a frame.
So I went looking for non-convertible cars that have a non-frame door like the Model S. I found some high end cards, wow!
Any opinions about the doors?
