“That’s one small step for man, and one giant leap for mankind”? Volkswagen is removing the incredibly stupid & distracting haptic buttons from their steering wheels, and going back to actual real buttons. It’s a small victory, but hey it’s a step in the right direction. 

The Neil Armstrong quote seemed fitting…

Because I’m pretty sure we sent him to the moon with far less tech than is in a MK8 GTI. Begging the question: Why? Why is there so much pointless shit in a driver’s car that’s supposed to be engaging > infuriating. Maybe if we’d stop the nonsense… MK8 GTIs wouldn’t have to be 45k. That would be neat.
