"Modern cars" or "Why I'm glad I have an E30"

TCL thread

Okay, I take several things from this thread:

  1. Just as cars used to be designed to rust/break, they're now designed to run forever, but require dealer visits for all maintenance.

  2. Old cars rock. Engineered by rules-of-thumb and experience, not by CAD tolerances down to 1 mm / part. Understressed, overbuilt engines that were evolutionary.

  3. Wow, I don't want to own a new VW. Oh yeah, I knew that already.
