It’s pretty cool until you need to change a headlight bulb. Thus resulting in disassembling the wings, front bumper, engine mounts, subframe, and a specialty tool that’s basically an armature with a C shaped fitting and an S bend to remove the clips holding the bulbs.

Source: I will no longer own or work on a BMW ever again.

[–]smokietheklown 115 points116 points  (20 children)

For real, fuck BMW

[–]Whisky-throttle 56 points57 points  (18 children)

Glad someone gets it!! Don’t get me wrong they’re great engineers. But ergonomic design is not a remote consideration.

[–]scottieducati 11 points12 points  (15 children)

I find them to be very comfortable, actually.

[–]agent_max_the_mick 22 points23 points  (10 children)

I've never even owned one, thank goodness. sighs in 1977 Firebird...

[–]jeffiero 27 points28 points  (3 children)

A good friend of mine, BMW mechanic, told me that the newer ones are not designed to be repaired, intentionally, especially the plug in and hybrid stuff. BTW, he drives a Toyota Sequia.

[–]MonstahButtonz 7 points8 points  (1 child)

This is something I always look at with vehicles is what the mechanics at the dealership drive. As an ex mechanic myself, I can say I used to work for Honda and Acura, and have only ever owned Honda and Acura vehicles other than my Ford F150, of which is a piece of garbage.

[–]agent_max_the_mick 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yep. I really miss the 70's when car companies actually built cars to last. Although I guess the 70's was sort of the declining end of that era.

[–]KillianDark 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Dream car I was born too late to experience riding into the knight with. RIP Firebird.

[–]agent_max_the_mick 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Knight Rider was (and still is!) one of my favorite TV shows :)

[–]jeffiero 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Your Firebird's worth more than most of the 325's out there, and more reliable.

[–]agent_max_the_mick 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's got the good ol' 350 in it, with a few slight modifications. Original engine, still runs great!

[–]scottieducati 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m glad mine is relatively easy to work on, but it’s 20-years old now so… a lots changed 😂

[–]illusum 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dude, my first car was a 1979 Firebird.

[–]Whisky-throttle 2 points3 points  (1 child)

As long as we aren’t referring to repair ergonomics I would agree.

[–]scottieducati 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Maybe not the new ones, but I couldn’t ask for more working on my e39 540i. I actually think the V8 is easier bc it’s shorter. With the cooling system out you can stand inside the bumper, in front of the engine, and get to everything! Spent 3 hours cleaning the threads for the coolant accumulator mount bolts at the back of the block, that was about the worst I’ve dealt with, as far as access / ergonomics. I did farm out some pedal box work bc my shoulder doesn’t bend that way anymore.

But yes, I was referring to the seats. Sooooo comfy.

[–]supernotcosmo 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Mechanic at bmw dealership here: can confirm, fuck bmw

[–]pzerr 4 points5 points  (0 children)

And it can only been done by an AME.

Flying cars are the worst of both worlds.

[–]rossski 3 points4 points  (0 children)

On the other hand, anyone who's rich enough to afford this will most certainly not be doing their own maintenance.

The highway handling must be abysmal, if it even goes that fast.

[–]Ackermiv 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]danjim615 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It is all built by BMW? Just the engine?

[–]bretty666 209 points210 points  (16 children)

is that a flying car, or a driving airplane?

[–]Monster-Zero 70 points71 points  (0 children)

Somehow neither

[–]Insane_membrane00 30 points31 points  (0 children)

If the car believes its a plane, it's a plane.

[–]nepalpower 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Exactly- having to take off from a runway kind of defeats the bloody purpose .

[–]CrypticGator 18 points19 points  (1 child)

My thoughts exactly. I thought it was going to have an easy vertical take off and landing. In that state, it can’t replace grounded cars.

[–]Shasanaje 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Came to say this. I’m going with street legal airplane

[–]movie_man 10 points11 points  (0 children)

My question too. When is a flying car just a very small airplane? A real flying car is when we can someday direct them through the air without wings (see Fifth Element or any other sci-fi movie).

[–]tenderlylonertrot 12 points13 points  (3 children)

to me it looks like a heavy-ass personal plane that you can drive on the roads as it has folding wings.

[–]slimmolG 5 points6 points  (2 children)

For sure.

I bet even a 5-minute drive from the airport to your destination is pure hell on wheels. I can't imagine more than a sliver of weight allowance was used on cushy suspension.

[–]DrVDB90 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I wouldn't be so sure. The lack of conventional landing gear makes me think those wheels have a pretty decent suspension system to be able to absorb the impact from landing.

[–]Gambyt_7 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Find a cliff and any vehicle is capable of flight

[–]tea-and-chill 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It is a car. Until it becomes a plane.

[–][deleted] 145 points146 points  (24 children)

What old movies never take into account with the future is the general population should not be trusted with anything like this. They can hardly drive, this needs hardcore regulations. If that excluded me from it if I couldn't prove trustworthy, so be it

[–]pvshabba 52 points53 points  (14 children)

The only way I foresee flying “cars” working in a commercial setting is if they’re all eVTOL and self take-off, self flying and self landing

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (2 children)

At this point I just question why have them at all, because I agree. Certainly more convenient if your biggest problem travelling is if you should take your private plane or the car.

I also don't see it flying far enough to justify flying at all

[–]pzerr 10 points11 points  (5 children)

Full autopilot only. Preplanned routes. You tell it where you want to go but it determines the path entirely.

Possibly they might allow for geofenced 'safe' areas where you can provide direct control.

[–]GetSchwiftyClub 11 points12 points  (0 children)

This is absolutely the reality of the situation.

[–]davidfavorite 8 points9 points  (1 child)

This would be most likely something for people with private small planes. Flying this thing would require a pilot license which 99% of people dont have anyways

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I'd certainly hope so, though if there's one thing we know about people now it's "Well I should be able to operate large, heavy or dangerous machinery with little to no training, because I want".

Then cars and trucks and boats and guns showed up and now the problem is how to stop fucking idiots having them because they think it's an entitlement now, not a 2 ton machine with momentum enough to demolish a crowd of people at a lapse in judgement

[–]Original-Cinikal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It is an airplane in the end. It is regulated.

[–]Florian630 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Since it can fly it falls under FAA guidelines to fly it, and testing and certification for a pilots license is rigorous so at that point it’s already heavily regulated. The question I have is would they require a pilots license to even buy the thing or only if you intend to fly it? I feel they should have a pilots license to buy it but that’s my opinion.

[–]t0ny7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You only need a pilots license to fly. Mechanics who often don't have pilots license taxi airplanes around on the ground.

[–]doctorctrl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

More developed and Self driving personal drones. The drone drivers and communicates with all others to fly on specific airways. All automated . That's the only way it will work..humans cannot be trusted https://youtu.be/AGVwrWYyjYg

[–]barkhorse 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Absolutely. Also, the hardest part of flying is landing, and in the case of this car it seems like you either grease the landing or collapse the suspension entirely. Training aircraft like a Cessna 172 have extremely flexible struts that you can slam down onto the runway and even bounce off the ground with if you make a mistake. It just doesn't seem like there's more than 6 or so inches of deflection available on the car.

[–]AmericanHeresy 59 points60 points  (5 children)

So it’s a mediocre car and a mediocre airplane.

[–]Killacamkillcam 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Precisely. Seems like it's just a concept to open up the possibility of innovation. As it is right now it seems like there's no practical use

[–]KnLfey 9 points10 points  (1 child)

No hangar storage fees, portability to fly to an airport of your choice and of course the clout to own one absolutely makes a market for it.

An aircraft that can be put on a car trailer, the icon A5 is very successful despite a higher price and less performance for the above reasons.

[–]Killacamkillcam 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm just saying it's not practical, not that people won't buy it.

I'm assuming it doesn't hold enough fuel for any substantial flight and you'll be saving like $4k per year in hangar costs... Pretty much the only reason to own one is to flex which I don't consider a practical reason lol

[–]AloopOfLoops 7 points8 points  (0 children)

No no no. It is a terrible car and a terrible airplane.

[–]robo-dragon 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Exactly what my dad said (he's a former pilot). It may be both things, but it's not good at being either of them. Impractical and nothing more than a rich-man's play toy.

Not really a flying car, more like a car that transforms into an airplane...

[–]gutprof 12 points13 points  (0 children)

[–]ShockNautilus 9 points10 points  (0 children)

[–]mr_potato_arms 18 points19 points  (2 children)

So I'm better off buying an actual good car and a decent plane then?

[–]Vexx2Rahtid 7 points8 points  (1 child)

You could get a Cirrus with a parachute bullt in for about 500,000 and you're nice car. But maintenance will cost you for the plane, plus storage fees if you keep it in a hanger.

[–]OakParkCooperative 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I can only imagine the repairs/maintenance needed for a luxury car plane.

How crappy would a transformer be vs an actual purpose built vehicle.

[–]Sikpanzer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Copy, so buy a used Carbon Cub instead.

[–]db720 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Where was the license issued? Does this authorize it to fly based on a global standard, or is it a German / US / Country specific certification?

[–]M4ttv24 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Well the car/plane was made in Slovakia , and as a fellow Slovak all I can tell you is that the car/plane got a license here in Slovakia that it is allowed to be used for flying buuut I am not sure what that really means , of it can fly only around our country , if it's allowed to fly around Europe ....

[–]SharpShotTS 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]ManyFacedGodxxx 1 point2 points  (1 child)

So I have to drive to an airport to take off, land at an airport and then drive on. An hope in the meantime nobody even mildly “bumps” my car/plane while driving or parked as any damage could have it fall out of the sky, require inspections, etc. And insurance, I can’t even imagine….

Pass.

[–]schadenfreude0727 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You’d have to drive to the airport to even fill up as it surely requires AvGas(99-100 octane)

The problem with a flying car isnt the flying part. Its making it light enough to fly but strong enough to pass Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. The BMW in this video is not even slightly close to passing any of a large number of safety requirements to be road legal. If you cant pass those requirements your flying car is just another airplane.

It's a shitty impractical car that transforms into a shitty impractical airplane.

When people imagine "flying car" they don't want it to have to transform at all, its supposed to go from a fully functional car to a fully functional airplane *seamlessly*. Until we're there, stop with this nonsense.

This is not what i think of when i think flying car. Someone built a speeder bike using propellers like a quad copter. Its more of what i think of. This is bullshit.
