Aside from their pernicious influence on our political system, efforts to accelerate ecological catastrophe, and run of the mill fraud and thievery, nothing I guess.
One thread, please.
That is a patent filing, and it states they “might” add light up emblems. The article even states they “might borrow the idea from Mercedes”.
Acura does not currently have any illuminated emblems, take if from me, the guy that works for Acura.
Somebody posted the take rate for the light up star once for the S-Class vs the CLA. Unsurprisingly the take rate on the CLA was several times higher than on the S-Class.
Personally I’d rather not have my ride look like a poor imitation of a nuclear spill but to each their own.
I think the funniest part of the Mercedes Illuminated star is that you can only get it if you cheap out on options that really matter, like adaptive cruise and automatic emergency braking. You are literally making your MB shittier from the factory for the sake of adding the “look at me” emblem.
Its much better than this dipshit coming down the road at you in full bloom.
I never said it was the drivers’ property. I also said that in this instance, I don’t have a problem with what MB Financial is doing with the location data.
Actually, I would hope that Mercedes couldn’t do that with traffic cameras. Or your phone. Because government surveillance is invasive enough. I’d hate to think that GCHQ and MI5 were somehow subcontracting as repo agents.
Mercedes being a luxury brand is a marketing myth created by Mercedes Benz USA (and partially responsible for why we have the 25-year import law here.)
A rock?! That’s an offensive weapon mate.
Not just knives apparently:
I don’t care if you loose your job or whatever. There are plenty of other alternative vehicles you can drive for much cheaper than a new Mercedes.
It’s a complicated story, but I ended up driving a Range Rover for a couple of months in college that didn’t belong to me. The daughter of the owner, who gave me the keys, made it very clear that the bank was looking for it because they stopped making payments. But, they were looking for it in a completely different…
Right? Unfuckingreasonable for them to abide by the contract I signed.
I hate it when a company threatens to do X if I do Y, and I agree to it. And then I do Y and the company does X. The worst.
As the proud owner of a 2019 Camry SE in Supersonic Red, I feel the need tell you to go and fuck yourself for blindly tarring every Camry owner in history with the same brush.
Sorry, I understand that it’s more economically advantageous to post videos on Kinja due to non-skippable ads and whatnot. It’s just that video is a super-duper inefficient way of conveying information, which is usually completely inaccessible to those of us checking the site from work, and this was actually something…
No I’m not watching your stupid video. If I wanted to watch videos I’d own a television. I go on the internet to read. Jesus.
