My new DD has a fair bit of tech.
is it good or is it just annoying??
I wake in the morning and get ready, before i say goodbye to the family in winter I start the car from the remote control to warm the engine and have the climate control warm the cabin.
I walk to the car and touch the driver door handle, this then unlocks the doors. I then open the rear door, I put my lap top and coat jacket in.
I then open the front drivers door, the key proximity allows all this entry.
I then prss the brake pedal as I sit and then press the start button the car to let it know thatI am here and am ready to drive.
I them move the gear stick into drive (yes automatic 9 speed transmission )
before I can drive I have to release the automatic hand break by pressing the hand break button.
I reverse the car out of the garage, but during this process (due to my wife having the direct straight in and out side of the garage) my I break sets of an alarm and automatically stops the car a couple of times before I have got out of my driveway (yes I get close to a garage and wall here and there but in 2 1/5 years yet to touch)
I then turn my parking sensors off by pressing a button and reverse out of my driveway.
I move the car into drive and turn the parking sensors on by pressing the button again.
I sit stationary as I type in the address I am going to into the sat nav (it won't let me type while driving ).
I have turned the voice giving directions off as she bugged the sh*t out of me more than anything else (be quiet woman came to mind frequently)
I get out of by local streets and onto the main roads.
I then press the adaptive cruise and then set the speed (the distance is set from the previous use therefore I don't need to adjust that ) and start the daily grind to my first clients home.
The car follows the car in front keeping the same distance, this I enjoy as I get to sit at the traffic lights untill the light go green. I then press the resume button and continue the car in front.
This works well until the car in front vears of and I nearly cause the car behind to pile into my rear (yes undesirable) .
I arrive to my clients home where I find a park. I look at the parrellel park as I arrive to it and press the parking button (no this does not mean I get to make out with a hot blonde in my passenger seat) I drive past the park. The car makes some noise and orders me to stop and put the car in reverse. I do so. the car then tels me to take my hands of the steering wheel and move. I let the car go backwards and the car turns the steering wheel on my behalf. I am then told to stop the car and to continue to not touch "MY" steering wheel. I move it into Drive as dirrected and "we" shimmy a bit and we are parked.
I then move the gear into park.
The automatic hand break goes on
I then press the button that opens the suv boot.
I then press the start button that stops the car
I then pick up my phone and flick the switch that turns the sound off so it does not make a noise in my clients home.
I then get to my boot to take out my bag and press the boot close button, the boot closes.
I then walk back to one of the front doors and press the door lock button.
The car is locked and I have arrived to my first appointment for the day
I no longer like buttons
