    From what I read they expect to be 80% after 160,000km and at best case at 90%. But i might have read it wrong. And like I said, we are using bsaicaly the same technology, things need to change.

    I drive multiple cars but I have a Corvette C5 that I don't use during the winter. When I am driving it I do have people who want to race me in their cars. Also, it's a cop magnet, so I put a very quiet exhaust on it. I like to drive fast, not attract attention.

    I drive a 320d. BMW's are popular around these parts. And its a pretty decent car. It ran out of blinker fluid some time ago, but I dont use those anyway.

    I drive a jacked-up Ford F-420, that I took the muffler off of to make as mich noise as possible.

    Everyone I drive by is amazed at how humongous my dick is.

    If the turn signal blinker is blinking then it means there's a problem with the car or the driver is having cardiac arrest.

    I’m simple with cars. I don’t have one now since I didn’t need it but I’m considering getting a Honda.

    I grew up with my dad buying new luxury cars all the time. I was never that impressed with a 100k Benz over an accord ex like I just don’t get it...

    It’s a tool. Get me from there to there in safety.

    F150 Lariat with the 5.0 V8 but I have a supercharger on it. Very quick, I've had several people pull up next to me at the next light and ask how an F150 pulled away so fast. Crowd matters, near the military base people like it, near cities I've seen unhappy looks.

    FYI I do not have a loud exhaust, going fast and intimidating the slow Prius infront of me is good, loud exhausts that wake the neighbors are bad.

    BMW X7. i enjoy driving it.

    how others behave ? 50/50 - 50 percent drives nicely and smooth and 50 % drives like suicidal idiots speeding like crazy just to be 5 minutes faster .

    just today had a situation where in very difficult weather conditions someone in kia sportage took it as point of honor to get in front of me - not only it took him like 700m+ to take me over because of snow on left lane he was driving like 3-5km/h faster then me when taking me over ... but he almost landed in ditch becuase of wet snow on road when he was returning on right lane. . never will understand people like that.

    depends how long the trip is - trains are nice because you dont have to go through all the hassle of getting to airport which is usualy out of city where you live / spend more $$$ on plane tickets then on train , airport security checks , you can use your phone without problems of flightmode , and the bonus is that while driving a car i cant simply take out my ultrabook and watch a movie/serf web or do some work to effectively use time

    my general rule is 1-150km car , 150-1000km - trains and 1000+km plane find it most enjoyable way of traveling. the only exeptions would be short 1 day business trips when i return the same day without sleeping in hotel.

    17 Willys edition Jeep (2 door), have had people walking by comment nice jeep (few small mods bummpers slightly bigger tires but still the factory rubi lift and rock rails it came with). have had older man comment on the willys name, and of course the wave.

    also a old squarebody k5 only comes out when the weather is nice, get a few comments about not seeing them often or seeing one in this area not all rusted out.

    Mercedes e220T, a silver one.

    And I'm only learning to drive, so other "cars" react to me with respect or annoyance. Not that either matters, I'll be a respectful driver aware of the rules, even if others don't seem to have the same values.
