Why not be different? get something totally different than what everyone is using and find a setup that works for you. Have the shop order you parts.
IS THIS the reason Xray gets beat up for having a loyal following, because everyone else and their mother has an Xray?
Come on now, he asked, "what's the best electric sedan". Advising to go against the grain does not answer his question, nor is it good advice.
Anyway, LHS support does mean something UNLESS you are already prepared to buy extra parts from a special order through your LHS or from an internet reseller.
As for Xray, hardly anyone on here will tell you Xray sucks, just the opposite. Practically anyone that has owned an Xray sedan in the last several years will tell you that they are durable cars. YES, parts are more expensive, but you will break fewer parts overall which thus negates the cost parts comparison completely.
Over the last 3-months, the only Xray parts I've needed are 1-front suspension arm, and 1-suspension holder, total cost = $11.00.
