haha i would be, except i know how to handle my car so i dont need an electronic nanny to do that for me. i can use the e-brake is the hill is super steep. if its not super steep, which is 90% of the time, i can go from the brake to the gas fast enough to barely roll a couple inches. if people behind me have a problem with that, they shouldnt come so close to my rear bumper. computers in performance cars were made for running the engine. THATS IT. electronic nannies that help you drive are for sissies and women and old people. if you talk on your cell phone while putting on your makeup, then yes you should probably be in some type of mercedes that will brake for you when there is a stopped car ahead of you. that makes me feel safer with those kinds of people on the road. if you need something to stop you from rolling backwards on a hill, then you should stop being distracted, start concentrating on DRIVING ONLY, and learn how to handle your machine so that you dont need electronics to help you. cars are becoming so damn boring it makes me sick. if i wanted a luxury experience id buy a mercedes. if i wanted sporty refinement then id buy a bmw. if i wanted raw performance then i'd probably buy something cheap and fast, or cheap with the potential to be faster without re-mortgaging the house. and i wouldnt want or expect it to come with the refinement and electronic nannies that the bmw and mercedes come with. /rant
