If it’s anything like their cinema cameras, they’re gonna sell me a car with a bunch of features built in and then I get to pay them more money at a later date to unlock those features. Also, the AV menu will probably suck.

The independent shop I use has numerous customers with 200k miles, and then some. It was one of the reasons I decided to pull the trigger and snag one for myself. Life is too short to not drive an interesting car because a lot of people heard on the internet that it wasn’t very good.
