Agree, and they actually did it on April Fools, unlike VW who was just plain stupid trying to manipulate their hype and press of EV's.

This is very well done and very funny.
My 1st reaction as an engineer was "yeah, makes sense, if you turn the wheel, automatically you can activate the turn signal..."

Overthinking it as always.

The truth about turn signals is that everyone should use them more often to be a safer driver for the benefit of everyone on the road.

Any plans to film a sequel which describes how an AI-enhanced iDrive will send a Taser-like shot of electricity to the steering wheel so the driver will be reminded to use turn signals?

This functionality - which utilizes a progressively increasing voltage level should the driver ignore the warnings in the HUD and 27" display - cannot be coded out.

Niice! haha

If we could only also teach people who use the turn signals WHEN to use them. They are also called indicators to "indicate" the change of direction coming. I see too many people turn them on when they are halfway across the lane already. Kind of late for its purpose.

Or leave em on for miles at a time. Half the time I'm guessing if a vehicle's going to change lanes based on behavior and positioning (no signaling), half the time I'm guessing if the vehicle's NOT going to change lanes because they've had a signal on for a full minute and it's clear.
