    Re: New BMW X5 (2018)

    You seem to think that there is only once good place for all? let them make up their own minds. I have lived on live on both sides of the Atlantic and can live on either side as I choose, but much prefer one side, but that may not be the same for others, some will be happier on the other side. If I could not live in Europe, my second choice would be NA for example. I'm sure you are happier there and I completely respect it for the above reason. That wasn't my point, I was only saying that your view of Europe, or what I have seen from posts is does not really correspond to reality, its a bit biased for some reason.

    It does not correspond to your reality. It corresponds to mine and the hundreds of people that have helped me forge this reality. Everyone is unique and different and there is not one place that’s best for everyone.

    What in the world makes you think Tesla is setting any type of leading trend regarding interiors? Nobody is following or cares about Tesla interiors...

    Smiley When I first sat in the Tesla S, I was so fascinated of the big iPad style display. Now I think it is annoying and not the best solution. Try to use touch displays for everything in a moving car. Good luck. Smiley

    You live in a different world the most people living in the USA do. I don't even remember the last time i drove above 140kph... You take autobahn curves at speed where you tire pressure matters for your life... Two very different worlds, one made of millions, the other of a few thousand people...

    And still...thousands of people die every year in the US because they text and drive (just imagine using a touch screen, same thing) while driving and I am still alive and accident-free (for over 34 years...). Smiley

    I will tell the dozens of people that are either reluctantly moving back to Europe or doing everything they can to stay in the USA that their brain is playing a trick on them and that they are wrong mail

    Humm ....  nothing is as black and white as you say. I have friends who moved to Miami , stayed there 4 years and happily moved back to Switzerland last year. They were very much involved in the French community in Miami and told me so many stories about French being so delusioned after a while there and moving back. My friends had a good time , loved it for what it was but after a while , missed old Europe.

    It is not for everyone, no place is. Also Miami is a large city, certain areas I would never move to.

    Some Europeans moving to Miami have the typical Smiley European mentality and they don't get along with life and people in Miami. It is really a matter of mentality. I do not feel at home in Germany or Europe but I have no choice. Smiley We met an older Russian who wanted to move back to Russia after spending almost 20(!) years in Miami. Very rich guy, he told us that he doesn't feel at home in Miami but his (deceased) wife loved Miami. Now he is without friends (he started talking to us at the pool, he owns a big condo in the neighboring building, everybody knew him) because he just cannot connect with Americans and "Latinos" (his words). To each his own I guess.

    Of course nothing is black or white, people are always different and this is what makes them interesting in the end. Smiley

    Re: New BMW X5 (2018)

    Well, I think the new X5 is so boring that a thread devoted to it morphs into another “best place to live” discussion.  Didn’t we already conclude the sweet spot is Leawood, Kansas?  wink
