Even Lexus' menu pad thingy is better (just) than this VAG nonsense.

The old BMW i-drive doesn't seem so bad now does it ?

Stellantis (U Connect) and FoMoCo (Sync) are the best in the business.

I find it amusing that a Ford Fiesta has better systems than a top of the line Porsche.

What frustrates me is that it's almost obsolescence built in, consumers are upgrading their cars based on infotainment and lighting vs engineering.

100% agree. Thankfully (like him or hate him) Elon Musk is turning this concept on it's head.

Only because they knew they were about to be slapped with a class action lawsuit from many customers who's screens had stopped working.

At lease they approved the recall for cars out of warranty, thats admirable.

I can't help but think they're screwing with us R/H drivers who are right handed. That's assuming that L/H drive vehicles have those controls on the right, of course. Those among us who favour dexterity on the left must be rejoicing though.

Have never thought about that. No wonder the missus is quicker at navigating our screen.

This is still the best 'tyre test' video made, IMO - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXgWWNJVdYA
These are my thoughts and opinions - sometimes I'm wrong, but not often ;-)
