One has to remember that we are the minority; we are the 1 percenters who know our car's owner's manual front to back, and my wife says I look at other peoples' cars the way I look at other peoples' wimmen

The average BMW owner is not an enthusiast. I see them every day with their dust-packed wheels and untinted windows. It's just a car. They see 'active sound' on the window sticker and say to themselves, "Well, at least I know the stereo'll sound good!" and then when they feed the pedal they hear the 'engine' and like the car.

So for me, it's like Comfort Access or Memory Seats - I just don't care.
"untinted windows" seriously
Oh the humanity. Dust packed wheels?!!!!! When will it ever stop. How dare they call themselves BMW owners. What a load of pompous BS. How about you spend more time actually enjoying your car and less judging other people. Just because I have untinted windows, and enjoy my Comfort Access and memory having seats does not make me any less of an enthusiast. I for one think that electric starters are for wimps who don't understand the true joy of crank starting their own engines.
