I think in 20 years, you're going to be in for a BIG surprise. Maybe ICE will be around, maybe not. BEV is the future. Tons of R&D money is going there, just like hybrid R&D money did. One thing is...

Don't like this trend, either. Cheapens the look of the car. It's not cost cutting, it actually costs more to add that crap to the car.

Well, yes, I see your point, but again, I think this is the misunderstanding that I'm referring to. In my own opinion, I don't think low profile "impact sharpness" is considered "ride". I believe...

This is a good topic. I, myself, feel a bit differently. I believe the vehicles ride has to do with the suspension and its tuning. 100%. Tires don't "ride". However, tires do make a huge difference...

Yup! When I have to drive in Miami, I'm terrified, and I'm a pretty confident driver. Miami's just too much for me, which is why I stay away unless absolutely necessary.

Good drivers are a non issue. Who recognizes good drivers? Courteous gestures by drivers happen so rarely, here, it's unbelievable. It just doesn't happen. Turn signals? What's that? Oh, I'm blinding...
