Re: [Rant] Another Useless Car "Feature".... Heated Steering Whe

It is a luxury vehicle... It is very likely with a cold package so folks who drive in the winter would likely get this. Heated seats are soooooo nice. Though I would not get heated steering wheel but luxury vehicles have things that most other cars don't.

They have all wheel drive cars (and BMW with X in the model is all wheel drive). Sat is horrendously expensive and I believe wifi has been played with but what wifi do you connect to? Do you really want BMW to start a wifi network across the world? A city can't get wifi to work well - how do you expect BMW (or any other car manufacturer) to do so? Not to mention - there are serious limitations to wifi...

Most people that BMWs don't read their own codes at all - especially the higher end models. Most people don't know what the causes are for codes - hint - the codes do not list cause so a mechanic will still be needed.

In short - just because you think it is stupid - does not mean everyone thinks like you... There are LOTS of folks who think ABS, airbags, crumple zones, seat belts are all crap and not needed.

I absolutely hate them. I find the warm feeling it gives to be very awkward and uncomfortable.

I never had a problem with my ass getting frozen off by sitting down in a car seat at -30C (celsius, for those who don't know).

Causes me to shiver and back ache badly. If my ass\back is warm then I am warm....
