    BMW have got some impressive shit on show at CES 2016.

    Check it out.

    The stuff from 4 minutes 34 seconds is absolutely unreal!

    I saw a "normal" i8 out on the road a few months ago. They're really not bad looking up close, although it's hard to unsee this:

    I'm usually a Luddite when it comes to cars, but I can see the usefulness of a lot of the technology in the video. I'll admit I'm not the best at parallel parking, so the auto-park thing could benefit me in some situations. Not sure how (or if) it would work with a manual transmission though

    This car is only useful for people that have garages and agendas! Pretty cool shit nonetheless.

    Automotive technology tends to head downmarket over the years and this will probably be no exception...stuff that you could only get on cars like the S-class 10-15 years ago (adaptive cruise control, etc.) is now starting to be available on Hondas and such
