I didn't mention distraction at all.Something about not being distracted by infotainment - i.e. infotainment that is non-distracting is important. Having to engage with a touchscreen for basic functions is distracting.
So we agree, infotainment is a key consideration?
Agreed, I'd say I'd not buy a car because of infotainment. I really hated that in my Jaguar you had to use a physical button and then the touchscreen to sort heated seats out - a Tesla takes this idiocy to the extreme and Audi have begun to follow suit.Just lost a few brain cells reading this argument.
Nobody actually buys a car just because of the infotainment, but of course it can be a factor between two otherwise similar cars.
they have lane-following/auto-cruise as a get out of jail card when distracted by the infotainment, and you have retina tracking.If they spend more time passing about with the infotainment than the steering wheel or accelerator pedal they shouldn't be driving
Does look like the bmw panels are not yet oled so there will be some nightime glow and inferior viewing angles.but touch screens and big ugly panels are a step backwards
For many people the aesthetics and the tactile feel of the interior are important, especially as many owners won’t even run the engine to even over 5,000 rpm, never mind using WoT or getting to the redline. It’s the feeling inside that matters to many.Anyone that buys a car purely based on the infotainment is an idiot.
It wouldn’t surprise me if they write it off, given the age and value of the car…
