    The two screens in one is a terrible aesthetic. I hated it when I first saw it in hyundai's EVs. Any screen that is "popped up" and not integrated into the dash looks like balls.

            The current gen pre-LCI models all have 7/7.5 (2 separate screens). LCI ones have 8.5 and, I think 2022 and 2023 7-series and X7 are the only ones that have 8.

    Because contrary to what DAtists may say, the curved screen is a massive improvement on the previous version of idrive. Also, the new comfort seats are probably the most comfortable seats in any car under $200k.

            The entire premise is incorrect.
            There should be NO EFFORT (struggle) involved to instantaneously select and apply the control that you need.
            That's the fricking difference between tried and true Analog controls and this iPad horseshit.

            If it's effortless for you, then kudos, but the problem is loss of choice for the rest of us.

    I like that car interiors have gone back to a very classic feeling, not quite "minimalistic" but very simple and functionally laid out, compared to the absolute button nightmares they were in the 00/10s, but now the screens are just as bad as older cars ever were. I mean I don't care about the screen that much, I'm looking at a screen right now even, but especially on luxury cars there's 700 different menus. I don't feel like we really need 8 different drive modes and 4 different steering modes with 5 different traction modes and also 20 ambient mood modes. I mean goddamn. Normal, sport, comfort. That's all you need. Do you want normal traction with comfort braking and sport+ steering? Frick you, frick off. Make up your mind.

      there's 2 issues
      a) every day functionality being integrated into screens. im all for not having infinity buttons, but frick man, climate control, heated seats, and other frequently used stuff should remain physical
      b) obsolescence. screens that look great now will look like old shit in 5-10 years. classic car interiors are still beautiful because they were all analogue. but something from the late 00's or early 10's is really ruined by having a shitty 480p screen in the middle of it.

        Exactly. I think late 10s cars probably got the balance right, screens were just for nav/music and Android Auto/Carplay was available. Important stuff still had proper buttons

    "We have no idea how to design a dash, here's an iPad. We're hip and cool now, right?"
    If they don't integrate it into the dash and have it at a comfortable angle to use, it's objectively bad. And retaining a bunch of physical controls is best as well.
    Most brands never get it right. The Ford Fusion had it right years ago.

          Appealing to the lowest common denominator. Porsche makes good electric steering since 991.2. Camaro has good electric steering and it uses the same ZF steering rack as the F30 3 series. Hell, even BMW can do it actually. I remember reading an article a few years ago, where some journo was driving a pre-production G20 3 series and an engineer was riding along tweaking the EPS mapping. And he first made it really good, then really numb. What I don't get after reading it, is why they just don't make the normal mode numb like it's now, and sport good, that should be the point of driving modes.

            I agree with you; I don't care if the normal mode is that numb comfort steering, they should give us the option to get more feel when in sport mode. Hopefully they'll come to their senses in the future, but then I'll have to hope that all their cars don't have that awful beaver tooth grill.

    The steering wheels look like they are made of the cheapest goyfoam imaginable, coated in the most obviously fake Saran-wrap leather. My 2013 bimmer seems to have much finer leather trim and seating than the same model from 2020. Even the fake wood plastic in the slightly older modes is kind of charming and shows some thought, as opposed to the newer models using same black and silver plastic you would find on an RC car. It certainly doesn’t incline me to trading up for a newer model ever when the chinkshit trim is worse than my GF’s new toyota
