Twitch streamer Eric "Erobb221" talked about his experience owning a Tesla car and the various add-on features that cost a lot of money.

Fans told him to view a viral tweet by Joe Pompliano highlighting BMW's new monthly subscription service that is required to enable the car's heated seats.

Initially, Erobb221 did not believe Joe Pompliano's claims, however, he backtracked from his statements saying that he pays a monthly fee for using internet services inside the car.

Eric spoke a bit more about other add-on features that he did not end up buying:

"You have to pay $10k for the Auto-Drive. So you get the car, you pay $10k for Auto-Drive, like self-driving, full self-driving capabilities. And then you can pay $2,000 for a speed boost. So, I haven't bought it yet. You can pay $2k for like, it makes your car faster."

"I don't f***ing care, man. 'You're an Elon b**ch.' Dude, okay! I hate this! I don't like... just because I like the f***ing car, a Tesla, doesn't mean I f***ing love Elon Musk. I don't understand this. Like, if you drive a f***ing Ford F150, do you love Henry Ford? Like, I don't understand!"

Erobb221 read a few more fan comments and said:

"It's so dumb! Hit a nerve because it's the most annoying s**t, man! He made the car? Okay, I get that. Doesn't mean I'm f***ing obsessed with the person! A lot of people make a lot of things. I like what they make, doesn't mean I love who they are! Okay? P*ssing me off, man!"
