The best of Germany through the years.

Or at least some pretty good ones.

Some nice cars in that selection. Plenty from Porsche, I hope to have another one day, I will never forget the combination of a roaring flat 6 and the beautifully balanced steering. I think the Mercedes is super impressive, who would have thought a 2.0 litre could have 415 bhp and a 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds, puts most electric cars to shame...

I don't know about the US but in the UK BMWs don't have to follow the rules of the road. They can overtake when it is unsafe, force their way into queuing traffic, park where they like (even disabled spaces without having a blue badge). They are also not required to use turn signals. I'd love one for those reasons.

We have that here, but not limited to BMW's.

Everytime I visit the US, I'm baffled as to why whoever's responsible for highway safety thought it was a good idea to use taillights for indicators (blinkers). When your lights are on, it's near impossible to see when someone is turning. Very dangerous.

Yes, it is much better when the turn signals are yellow not red. I'd like to see the center brake light converted to a dual function yellow/red light. When the driver lifts their foot off the accelerator it should come on yellow so following drivers know the car will be slowing and then go to red when braking as usual.

Alot of EVs use brake lights when lifting off the accelerator because the regen can be as strong as braking.

Yes, and for those using the brake lights is a wise idea. For cars that just coast I'd like to see the other idea.
