      The CUE continues to get better with new updates for the '16, but still not great. I have a loaner SRX 2015 (included maintenance and loaners) right now and it is better than my 2013. Screens are...

      Actually the "necessary evil" is more like "they are a better choice" for you.

      Living in an urban neighborhood I find all of the above surprising. Somehow we manage to do all of the above with...

      Seems like the limitation on high rpm's for such a small amount of time wouldn't be solved with an oil cooler. Basically if I want to rev it hard for 15 seconds it wouldn't matter whether I had an...

      I am surprised you keep saying this, like you have some great idea that no one has thought of. So you think it needs to be the best performer, have the best interior, best exterior and at the lowest...

      :thumbup: Take the tax credits away and watch the numbers of hybrids/electrics drop, hurting the adoption of the technology (manufacturers) far more than the consumer.

      Wasn't the last Boss 302 the highest hp, NA Mustang they have ever produced at 444 hp and this engine is 526 hp? I think a significant jump and I think part of the reason they did it. I don't see...

      Seems like virtually no one buys an i3 because of the "give away" lease rates. I agree with the consumers who get the bargain basement leases but it makes me think that virtually no one wants to pay...

      Any guesses on what % of new BMW's are now hybrid/electric? My guess is 3%. Anyone?

      3% to 100% over 10 years is a big jump.
