  2. That segment is so small it is a waste of time and resources to go after. Most people DO NOT want a coupe on steroids as a CUV. Waste of effort and time for all auto companies. The Germans can continue to beat themselves up over it for the what 100-200 sold a month.
  3. From time to time, various manufactures will give SPIFFs on selling their hardware. I know I have seen retail folks use crazy lies to get you to buy a product they get a $25 spiff on. Yet a quick sale can come back to haunt a person if they are not careful.
  4. Technology is cool, but we are not there yet and I think it will take a generation, aka 10 years to get there.

    This will so make the auto's last longer and be much more comfy come this winter for you. Awesome move! @Drew Dowdell Seems really weird but since the image posting bug, the emoticons now seem to have a bug that if you use a keyboard shortcut it gives the weird image icon and the shortcut for it but does not really post the emoticon. Yet this time it worked for me. Weird even the menu now has some weirdness to it. Weird, the image showed fine of my screen capture but submitting it shows the same problem we had before with images. Must be an expansion of the bug in the software.

    @Cory Wolfe Great to hear from you, sorry to hear about your job. Stay positive always good things happen. Have you thought about going into content writing for the High tech industry or the auto industry in regards to the various positions the Auto companies have for content writing or as I stated High Tech? I know of plenty of positions where we could use solid folks creating solid quality manuals, white papers, blogs for technology. Wishing you all the best on your next adventure.

    We survived the 70's and 80's putting the kids there with no problem before the Gov had to protect us from ourselves!
  9. BMW has some ugly CUVs. The coupe thing is just VSS-S is GM's new platform, what does the initials stand for?

    Ford News: Ford To Cut Platforms Down To Just Five

    This pretty much settles why the V8 is way better than a Turbo 4. THE SOUND!
  11. Agree with @Cubical-aka-Moltar Green house has not really changed and other than the license plate, it just looks like a scalled down size between the 3 CT versions. Truly hope they are clearly different looking.
  12. OK, for those that do not want to read the long heavy testing to see who wins what, here is a recap: Features (Cores & PCIe Lanes) Winner AMD Overclocking Winner Tie Coolers (heating/power consumption) Winner AMD Motherboards Winner Intel Gaming Performance Winner Intel Productivity Performance Winner Tie Value Winner AMD Bottom Line Winner AMD
  13. Gotta love Toms Hardware reviews. Great review of the bleeding edge new CPUs from Intel and AMD. https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-ryzen-threadripper-2-vs-intel-skylake-x,5727.html?utm_source=th-newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20180815-th

    For it's day when new, not a bad looking SUV, but the Envision wins hands down as the better looking ute.

    Yes, from an engineering standpoint all the box's are ticked and it does beat my TBSS. Take driving experience into consideration and I still would put it up against a CX9 and in most cases unless it is another well experienced professional driver would win. But your point is valid and I do agree with it from that standpoint.
