The loaner I had the last 2 days while having the diesel recall work done had a heated steering wheel....and it was super nice....
I would love to have cooled seats, I'd rather have cooled seats than heated. I rarely use mine.

15% on a vehicle 2 years old isn't enough for me.

Although one of my customers just bought a new 2016 Hell cat for essentially 15% off. He felt that was a good deal so I dunno. I think I would had tried to get more off, but he's loaded so maybe didn't care as much.

when I built my D Ram, they took off roughly 18% and it was a new model year (granted some of that was incentives from Ram).

I just bought a new jeep for one of my guys a couple weeks ago and it was roughly 14% off MSRP for a 2018 sitting on their lot.

Even though it's new, as soon as you drive it off the lot, you will get hit with a 2 year old resale value. I can bet that is way more than 15%. I would expect a bit more off personally.

Yeah I used my cooled seats in my truck year round.

Heated seats are nice on super cold days IMO - but I only run them while the heater is still warming up. Ice cold leather sucks when the car has been in an open-air parking garage all day in the winter.

Yeah I figured so... 15% just doesn't seem like enough. I'd think that 15% *to start with* ... not as a final price.

Right now the diesels are holding their value - comparing prices today to prices a year ago for used ones, they literally have not changed. At all. Tho I imagine some of that is now due to pent-up demand and the inability (until last week) to buy a new one.

Yep I only use mine on super cold days too, like single digits cold.

I've never gotten to experience a heated steering wheel or cooled seats. I thought heated seats were dumb until I got the gti. I hate that my rabbit doesn't have them now.

pleb status.


On a side note I'm giving a presentation in an hour about artificial intelligence and how it relates to the insurance claims space. Going to be about 60 people there.

Picture everyone naked right?

This is true. I have felt the joys of cooled seats in the summer not bad!!


And good luck sounds like a interesting presentation. In for live stream!
