Run flat tires because it's just so hard to change a spare.

I can't believe this thread is on page nine already, and nobody mentioned idiot lights, or the newest edition: idiot gauges! If you're going to bother putting a gauge on my dash, make it freakin' functional!! I don't need a temperature, oil, or battery "gauge lookalike" that always reads midscale! I want to know the coolant temperature, the oil pressure, and the battery voltage level, thankyouverymuch.



also, as an aside: the "aux lights going off when the high beams go on -- those are not "aux lights", those are "fog lights"... and in any situation when you would need foglights on, you definitely do not need high beams on. (and, vice versa is just a waste of electricity: the high beams are far brighter and reach further than the fog lights would).
