That's stupid. Silver? Really? My $1,700 Camry does the exact same thing as this thing.

It gets me from point A to point B.

Quite a nice car. There are folks who it may appeal to and the cost is indifferent. Sales of 7 series are quite limited and beyond that this is small subset of them.

The main issue with me is a car is still a disposable item after 10-20 years, I personally cannot see spending more than $20k-$30k on a new vehicle.

...presumably for the same reason some people like stacks of paper or glossy detailing product on the dashboard. The driver doesn't much care about crashing.


LOL I guess not! I like as non reflective as possible but hey.....I never had the option to have the most reflective material all over my dash!

I agree about the silver...

The rest? not so much; otherwise there would only be Camrys in this world, and what a sleepy world THAT would be.

And don't think I am some expensive/premium car fan etc.
We own a 2003 Elantra with 211k miles; We own a 2014 Mazda6, and also own a 2005 BMW 3-series coupe.
Believe me, while I respect and like all 3 there ARE differences between those 3 cars, and some of them are not subtle.

Bling, designer logo on the upholstery, TVs on the seats....hmmm, looks like a donk for rich people.

This Gucci donk can be had for much less...
