New 5 series

Postby akirk » Fri Oct 14, 2016 6:46 pm

Interesting article in autocar on the new 5 series, which has the option of an autonomous driving function...

- BMW claim liability remains with the driver (Volvo take full liability)
- the car will talk to other BMWs...
-- so if you put on the foglights it will warn local BMWs (I am sure that they will be delighted to be warned in bright summer sunshine! :) )
-- so it won't warn other drivers - bad luck, you have to own a BMW to be warned, everyone else can die :)

Don't be silly - definitely an optional extra :)
