    This is absolutely true.

    As far as performance and fuel consumption of more efficient gasoline assemblies are concerned, BMW's engines in comparison to most brands simply look like science fiction.

    Although, for example, in the undercarriage department (steering precision, materials, positioning) Bavarians are quite a few steps behind, even today. However they've mastered having advantages in snow conditions and diesel aggregates.

    Of course taken into consideration that it's different priorities for different people.

    yeah the rich dont give a shit about the environmental impact apparently lol

    i garauntee you they could make car engines way more efficient right now than they let on, BUT to do the switch over and make it standard would put the car companies out of business because of cost. SO they stretch out minor improvements over many years to allow the companies to adapt and afford it. Its all about money

    and it sucks

    ^There's been a multitude of people who've tried pushing the "eco friendly" cars forth, without much success.

    But yeah, it's slowly progressing.

    its cuz the big car companies shut them down, because they know it will cost them too much money to make it a standard car building practice right now.

    back in 99-2000 they came out with an electric car, but they got shut down because they were fucking up the program for the other companies.

    ^Not only that, it's also the shortage of copper that's holding the electric cars behind. And the fact that most people want to have a bigger/faster/etc. car than their neighbor.

    I'm surprised that materialism hasn't been chosen as an Olympic sport yet.

    :funny:

    That reminds me when my friend had her phone in repairs and her little sister lent her own phone. When it was time for my friend to return the phone, the little one went: "That's ok, you can keep it, I'll get mom to buy me the new iPhone anyways."

    Shopping Olympics worthy.
