Too many reviews are just raw stats and this is diluting the real experience of owning a car.

The car media is mostly interested in the next best thing; they're like spoiled children.

I totally agree with that. It's hard making reviews of how it is like to live with these cars, since we test these cars anywhere from 2 to 14 days usually. But I do try to put these car into context a bit and not concentrate too much on the rare numbers, because frankly speaking, I don't care about numbers.

Oh and... I am from Munich
