I don't like it, not at all. More gizmos to distract you from paying attention to the road.

Do you really need your car to tell you when the light is green, or when there is traffic coming? Use your eyes!

I feel what you are saying. This is going a step too far. You still should to have full control over the car at all times.

thats what i was thinking. Looks like its a full LCD gauge in some of it... then again i could be wrong. when i paused the video it looks like there is a shadow/reflection on the curved part of the speedo hashes. however in some other clips the animation of the needle makes it look like an LCD gauge.

I would welcome a feature that pulls my M to the curb, opens the passenger door, and says, "hey beautiful, I'll get you there faster" -- I get so tired doing that manually.

lol

Ideally, driving a car you keep you head looking out the windshield, not down into the dashboard. Someone is going to get fixated on the warning lights and symbols and forget about the big picture!

Not so sure this is a good thing unless they go to a heads-up display.

Do all the gizmos come with fries?

How much more intrusive can they make technology? Just give me headlights, turn signals and a horn and I'm good to go.

I'm surprised how bloody quiet our cars are, I never hear ambulances when I have music on, they really need to have emergency vehicles mute the car audio on top of the dummy light (or instead of.)

Can I just black out the window trim and leave the side marker and reflector or will that still look odd?
I like the black and silver look.

Yes I realize as well I need to get CF overlays for the wheels...

Lol, thanks for the overwhelming confirmation.

I tried to post some replies but try don't seem to be showing up...

Anyway, can I just do the window trim, the like the "black and grayish" theme?

I am getting CF overlays for the wheels...

I wouldn't disconnect tje gong...it "gongs" for other reasons besides tje setbelt....

BTW a passenger in a mustang died next to my house yesterday....it's weird...driver lived with little/no injures (belt on) passenger thrown from vehicle died on scene (no belt)...if we are all paying for national healthcare you better die on scene or else wear yur belt!!
