In order to do proper diagnostics you'd need to know how the program works.
So far nobody in US could figure it out, while Stuttgart is not helping.

I'm not sure what Frankfurt has to do with anything, but if you expect the manufacturer to help you change their design, I'd say fat chance, even if said manufacturer were FSO, let alone DB.

Fact that you know meaning of Fabryka Samochodow Osobowych vouches for your high education, but still no excuse for rude behavior from time to time.
I already corrected Frankfurt to Stuttgart, but with you education you had to know what I had in mind this way, or the other.
Seeing how you like other languages, try to find meaning of "upierdliwy"

It's hard to know what you had in mind when you're out here proposing shade tree solutions like your "backup system" and the like. The closest English word to the one you give is probably "stubborn", which I'm not sure how that applies either. About half your posts are about how wonderful diesels are, the other 49% are about how you buy cars for $500 then sell them for $15,000 or something with the remaining 1% parading your idea of engineering. Do you seriously expect anyone to go gaga over all that? I must admit, though, you outdid yourself with that "backup system", you and Feliks Andrew should go into business together.

Grouchy is closer translation, although English does not have the exact word
You remember what you want to remember. Others might disagree.
Just because you can't understand something, doesn't make it bad.

I understand it fine. It's not a question of being bad, it's just that it's not very practical. People aren't going to re-engineer their cars, especially based on a cockamamie idea of some guy from the internet.
