Technological Marvel

The electronic magic they put into this car is amazing and I guess if you can afford the car you wouldn't have to worry about what it costs to fix, but, when this technology becomes more mainstream you will never again be able to get your parts down at the local Autozone and spend an afternoon wrenching in your driveway. In fact, the cars today that use a lot of technology to control everything are too expensive to fix for it to be worth it. We are heading toward throw away cars with maybe a 10 year life. After 10 years the electrical systems start giving problems, you get all kinds of gremlins, and corrosion sets in. I've had German cars before and they are far from immune to this problem.

That being said, this is one very sweet car.
