Things go viral for a reason, and it's often not because the content is praiseworthy. This is definitely a news story written for the traffic spike it will inevitably bring. C'est la vie!This article only fuels his agenda; making him more known, and ticking off more folks in the process.
Did this article really need to go up? This guy needs to be ignored; he's being fed more salty tears, of which he's more than happy to drink, or bathe in.
There are people out there that live off of others' dissatisfaction. If people articulate that, then:
As a friend of mine who owns a BMW once said "BMW stands for 'By More Warranty'" BMW has the highest resale rate after one year because most people cite "lack of reliability" and "high cost of repair" (Not blaming you, just BMW's poor engineering as of late.)As a BMW mechanic, I can confirm this guy is going to need a new engine within a year from a warped head and/or engine block.
Probably not, at least if we're talking about the mining operation in the back of the car. I can't say I know exactly how much the power produced from from this hybrid car's gas engine costs on a kw/h basis, but it's undoubtedly a lot more expensive than electricity from the wall at home. And this is not something you can leave running for long when the car's gas engine isn't running. Its battery apparently has around 5000kw/h of usable capacity, which would only be good for running this for maybe 3 hours at most with the engine off before the battery would be drained. And of course, if the trunk needs to be open, you can't run it while the car is actually driving anywhere, and you wouldn't leave the car unattended in a public place with the trunk open containing thousands of dollars worth of computer equipment. It might also put additional stresses on the car's electrical system, leading to expensive repair costs down the line. This setup is undoubtedly just for use as an impractical conversation-piece to show off.A small price to pay, I guess? The mining operation will more than make up for it, right?
I don't actually know, but I am curious.
