He did a great job (as he always does) here. Wish he would have had the Limited to review:


Weird @ 0:09 the way the front turn indicators AT NIGHT look like they are pointing the opposite of your intention. That is prolly just to my eye, i confuse wayyyyy too easily...lol

Yup! > 馃憖 <

You wouldn't think it mattered, but it does something to your unconscious mind. o_O

From 2:18, even though I know what's happening, I actually think that car is preparing to turn right! When the left mirror signal comes into view, it adds a contrapoint which causes a moment of even further weird instability. Of course, we have all seen and discussed this phenomenon, so we're preloaded to sort the confusion -- but still....

I wonder if many oncoming drivers mutter, "What the...!" when they see an SC turning the "wrong way." Hopefully, that is the worst thing that happens.

As I have said in a past thread, your in a city you have never been in before, your lost, traffic is heavy, it' raining cats and dogs, the Santa Cruz facing you has a turn signal arrow flashing pointing to your left, you go straight because the Santa Cruz signal indicates it will go the direction the arrow points. The Santa Cuz hits you in the drivers door, "what the **** just happened". As HSC4ME said the mind reacts in strange ways, more so in unplanned stressful situations. The turn signal arrow should point in the direction the vehicle is going.

I've seen those arrows on our local ambulances too - as SEQUENTIALS! I love 'em.
