Is This Bs Necessary...


Recommended Posts

I know other vehicles probably have even more bs installed on them, but I usually don't pay attention to such stuff. This Autoweek bit just happened to catch my attention regarding the 2014 BMW X5...


"Competing with the likes of the Audi Q7, Mercedes-Benz M-class and Porsche Cayenne, the X5 comes with a long options list, such as head-up display, night vision with human and animal detection and a spot-light function, lane-departure warning, lane-change warning, road-sign information, a 360-degree surround-view parking assistant and … you get the picture. The new X5 will also offer full internet access, in-car use of Facebook, Twitter and other on-line services plus a dictation function with speech recognition for e-mails and texts."

Really?! Fucking marvelous.

I thought you typed that it included a "road rage" detection system. B)   Oh wait - that would be for the driver of the new X5 while trying to decode all that fancy-schmancy stuff.


Anyone else besides me notice how thick the owner's manuals have gotten?  My wife's 2002 Mercedes has (2) thick booklets plus a spiral "quick reference guide".
