    More people are coming to what I have been saying for a long time...speed is no longer important. It's just another factor.
    Yeppers, this is how I've been feeling for nearly a decade now too. Speed isn't necessarily even breaking into my top 3 virtues for cars I drive and consider buying. I'd take sound and steering feedback, or especially ride quality, over speed any time, particularly in Canada, where unlike in California - the other place I mainly drive, at least until Covid - you can barely stretch a decently fast newer car's legs without being into the "seize your car for being naughty" speeds of 40 or 50k over the 100/110 limits on most of our highways. In Cali, doing 80 or 85 even on the Freeways is pretty commonplace, here, you get crucified for that. Even IF we could get away with Cali/etc type speeds up here, a car's speed still isn't nearly as important to me anymore. Acceleration isn't a bad thing, but again, you can't really use it much beyond a couple of gears in most cars these days.

    Next spring I might check out the CT5-V - my uncle has an older CTSV, and I really liked it the few times I've been in it.

    I think part of getting older is realizing there’s more to a car than outright speed. Still nice to have sometimes when you want to rip off a long pass on the highway.

    Having a nice infotainment system is definitely a gamechanger.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    having used both, Wireless Android Auto is a bigger game changer. Only complaint I have about it is it drains the phone's battery kinda quick. Wish my truck also had wireless charging, but, I can fix that.

    100% right. The Lexus LC500 has been really speaking to me lately.

    I always double check them on the road. Hmmm

    I’ve been using wireless CarPlay for some time now. There’s a pretty serious issue with it, it works fine on its own but wireless charge at the same time, it’ll overheat the phone after half hour. Thought it was my old iPhone XS but nope, new iPhone 13 Pro has the same issue. Not sure if same problem exists with android auto wireless. I’ve gone back to wired CarPlay.

    We've really liked ours, I tried to find something to replace it with this spring, and despite driving a lot of cars, I couldn't find anything I liked better. Our car is a first generation model, we might even just "upgrade" to a newer model in spring 2022.

    My phone has never overheated using wireless CP.

    You can switch between? BMW it’s wireless only now.

    No wireless charging on my car tho, if that’s what “wires charge” means to you in chinglish

    haha I edited the autocorrect. You must've quoted before that.

    Ya, Wireless CarPlay + wired charging is fine, but that defeats the purpose completely. It's the double wireless that fucks shit up.

    Anyways, back on topic, I drove the Taycan in Forza Horizon 5, and yea, it's hilarious how it manages laptimes. Insane straight line speed. Brake like a motherfucker for every little turn. Zero balance. Suspect that's the Plaid's story too?

    I'm sad that these cars are going to be taken away from us. So we can all drive fucking blenders with batteries.

    Sounds good for a 6. Easily over 500hp with a tune I'd imagine.

    Might have to consider trading my beyond civic (F150) in for one, as much as I like driving a truck for a daily, I certainly don't need a truck that often.

    Also, that blue looks so good.
