RE: SUV and SL ban?
I find it somewhat puzzling and rather appalling. Everyone in the world seems to hate the "ugly" Americans and their "pompous", "hollier than thou" attitudes. Yet, the idea of a very large, obnoxiously gas-thirsty monster on wheels (SUV), born in the US, seems to be taking hold everywhere. Is the SUV marketing really that effective?
Nothing that comparatively speaking dwarfs a 5-series BMW should be considered a logical alternative for family transportation.
I know that the Land Rovers, Range Rovers, the G-Class, etc. have been around for quite some time, but their numbers made them an oddity, not the norm. I wish people would wise up and start driving inherently safer and much more fun automobiles. There are a lot of sports sedans out, and there should be a lot more sports cars, too. I mean, come on, a Porsche SUV?
