      You're just a kid with no experience. Why should we take your opinion on what EVs are like? Simply put, you don't know what you are talking about. [emoji849]

      Actually MOST households have two or more cars (the figure is about 66-70% depending on study). That's vastly more households than we can even build EVs for. So no, most people in the US can use them.

      I'm solidly middle class and I got the full state and federal credit on my Volt. How the **** do you think the middle class is getting ****ed by having more and more affordable EVs???

      I know, right?

      Gotta love enthusiasts ****ting on sports cars 'cause they don't like some of the owners.

      He doesn't repeat it any more than so many guys repeat how bad having no airbags is, and usually it's in response to people saying or implying that. Sorry, but from the outside, both are as bad as...

      Interesting the responses here vs the responses in the "drive your classic car" thread.

      "I drive my classic all the time 'cause its not meant to sit."

      "OMG you're gonna die instantly if you...

      Leasing a new car doesn't make someone a nonenthusiast. Sorry. And a limited poll of one small model does not a trend make, either.

      And again, unlike other companies, BMW's base was made up to a disproportionate amount by enthusiasts. So THEM making the decision to alienate enthusiasts is a bad one. Toyota, and Ford, or example,...

      Yup. Teaching him to mitigate his OWN risk, by not bubble wrapping him and coddling him. No contradiction at all.




      The problem is people like you think they will die from EVERTHING. They...

      I have read it. I disagree with them and their reasoning/choices. And I've explained why.

      So your response is essentially that we need to mitigate ALL risk, for them to grow up in bubblewrap and in a fully sterile environment so that they don't have a life so that you know they can't get...

      Fine, Ross, the ability to feel what the tires are doing down to the squirm of the tread blocks, and the confidence it inspires to place the car accurately in corners, is just subjective bull****...

      But that reputation can leave them when the people who generated that reputation leave. Perception IS reality, as TCL likes to remind Caddy fans, and if the perception is allowed to negatively...

      We had a poverty spec E36 325i with an automatic and yes, it still did deliver the driving dynamics BMW was known for by enthusiasts. Enthusiasts don't just buy the M models, which are exclusive. BMW...

      But no one would have bought/be buying them for the badge, had the enthusiasts not promoted the cars as worth buying. That's the disconnect you missing. The lease rates are attractive, but still more...

      No, a lot of us reading agree with you. The kid is at fault for speeding and reckless driving, AND we all can learn not to dawdle out there in situations that put us in harms way even at the speed...

      Good points. Where did BMW's volume COME from? From enthusiasts buying the cars and telling everyone else how good thy were, thus getting status seekers to buy them. Without the enthusiast base, and...

      Not the same. The emissions equipment is in use every time the engine is running. It's more like the VW was equipped with cruise co0ntrol, and he did't use it, but the car still crashed into the back...
