      If you wonder why AJ cannot be seen in the driving part and you see some more exterior shots than usual: there was a camera hardware problem, but of course team Autogefühl also survives such situations to bring you the most detailed reviews no matter in which circumstances! :-)

      What do you mean it's always on? It's a performance SUV. Not a freaking KIA. Performance cars this side of a telsa all make mean noises. Instead if trying to turn a performance SUV into a quiet docile get-about, how about you find another vehicle that has those traits and fits your needs? Its reviewers like you that BMW listened to and completely lost their way. The X40i brings back that classic BMW experience but you'd rather have it sound and behave like every other SUV on the road. The M40i isn't for everyone. Stop trying to talk BMW into ruining the M40i's experience when the reality is that you are better served with another vehicle.

      The length of the hood (bonnet) is disproportionally long compared to the overall size of the body.  It just doesn't look right.  I like BMW cars and their performance oriented philosophy, but I would not buy this car because I don't like the way it looks.

      Volvo was competent to pack all of the hight tech in the very minimalistic style. Kudos for them! BMW and the others are so distracting with over complex interior design and control features, tons of buttons, so many lights . Yes, it looks so technical but actually is so confusing and not a modern approach to deliver smooth and reliable car control !
      German are about pseudo luxury.
      Volvo is clear winner in this category.

      Really don't see the point to upgrade my X4M40i to this. Same stuff but in a different package. I don't see how this car can compete with Porsche Macan S/GTS. As some people stated here, the design is very subjective. BMW used to build simple cockpits, but not anymore.

      Dude.. no offense but no one cares if you like fake leather more than the real thing. You saying it on every video is annoying and either way any of us prefer real leather for many different reasons. About the video. Complaining about the MX3 to lack a ¨relaxed mode¨ is also ridiculous. I mean you are buying an M car. That pretty much says it all. If you want a tamed car but a different version.

      about 1 year ago
    • Autogefühl
      Autogefühl In reply to Juan G

      Thank you for taking interest in this very important topic!

      We have researched this issue for many years now so please take your time to go through our extensive resources stated below as they answer every single question we have yet received concerning this matter.

      At Autogefühl, we have already received several thousands (!) comments, messages and mails that more and more people want to combine enjoying their car with reducing the environmental impact at the same time. We believe that sustainable luxury is possible or at least we should do everything to support that. Those many thousand people confirming this trend, motivate us to give you the most authentic information and background on the product parts. It is not about what you bought in the past, and it is not about blaming anyone, it is about what you decide in the future and what you can decide and influence as a customer. So we want you to have all information that you need for a decision you later enjoy and like best yourself.

      In Summer 2017, Tesla motors has decided to be the first manufacturer to go all the way with sustainable seat materials, only offering fabric/cloth seats or leatherette seats in different colours. They have banned all real leather from the seating surface and at the steering wheel in the white trim or on demand. So Tesla shows where the industry will and must be heading, just like they went forward with electrification first.

      Check out our special video addressing car CEOs as a first summary and also see conditions of animal skin production:
      https://youtu.be/LNSUzZXzpdc

      List of practical reasons against animal skin seats:


      1. animal skin seats are often sold as an expensive option, by going for base trim level seats you can save a lot of money and get a better price-performance-deal (often the manufacturers claim that animal leather is top of luxury because they can earn the best money with it)
      2. animal skin seats get hot in summer and you stick to the seat, probably you need seat cooling
      3. they get very cold in winter and you need seat heating
      4. on cloth or microfibre surfaces, you basically don’t need seat heating nor cooling
      5. animal skin seats wear out very fast and look like an old sofa
      6. if you want leather look or need seats that can be wiped clean easier, the leatherette (faux leather) surfaces are meanwhile highly evolved and it is possible that it feels even softer and better than anything else (See our Tesla Model X review https://youtu.be/y2wNGFKa4M0) So Tesla shows a good example for that and as described, non-leather materials are now standard for ALL Tesla
      7. More manufacturer names for their good alternatives: Mercedes MBTex/Artico for leatherette, Dinamica for microfibre. BMW Sensatec, Toyota Sof-Tex, Lexus Nu-Luxe (all faux leather)




      To the environmental reasons:


      1. The way the cows and other intelligent and social animals are raised and held are not according to the basic values that we all share (also see videos below)
      2. The factory farming industry can be accounted for at least 40 % of climate emissions and thus is (according to numerous sources you can look up) the number one reason for climate change and environmental destruction. It is the number one reason for deforestation, two thirds of all agricultural land on earth is used for growing animal food crops. If you would feed humans directly by using the agricultural land, you could produce much more food for everyone. See this interesting essay for more on climate emissions background: http://www.worldwatch.org/files/pdf/Livestock%20and%20Climate%20Change.pdf
      3. It is not only cows who are suffering, but also the environment and to a big part also humans. Think of slavery-like working conditions in slaughterhouses (there are plenty of documentaries about this) or think of chemically altered drinking water in animal skin production villages as also seen in the video footage.
      4. The discussion, for which body part the cow is killed first, is very patronizing. But if you really think it would be important why someone gets killed in first place: There are many productions where the cow is killed for the skin first, sometimes even while still being (part-)alive, the skin is the most profitable single part of the body.
      5. So even if a cow gets theoretically killed for meat first, in every case you give additional money to an industry that relies on killing, pollutes the environment and harms people with chemicals. Let's say you are standing at the meat counter. And you ask for the leg of the cow. The butcher tells you: "You can eat that without worrying, the cow was slaughtered for the neck first". The next customer demands the neck. The butcher tells him: "It's not your fault, the cow was slaughtered for the belly". A the next customer demands the hide, what answer does he get? You see, that argument of "byproduct" comes from the meat and leather industry to cover up that you contribute to killing no matter which part of the body you buy.
      6. To the often said argument, animal skin would just be a byproduct, please google/youtube "leather is not a byproduct" you will find plenty of information. A good overview on all those issues can also be found here: http://adaptt.org/




      To “But leatherette is not sustainable due to petrochemical production”
      1. Indeed some fabrics and micro fibres are oil based, however most oil is spent on energy production, heating and fuel. The share of oil used for artificial cloth etc. is very very small.
      2. If you look at the whole production process, the leatherette is way more sustainable than the leather produce.
      3. The best to-come solution are indeed plant-based materials like Pinatex (based on pineapple leaves) or new materials based on mycelia (roots of mushrooms) or other innovative natural products. That’s the future.


      More special video episodes:


      1. A initial special video from Autogefühl considering the use of leather can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8f91KgbVbJQ
      2. And another one right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMNgcLE0LDU
      3. Furthermore, you’ll find the footage of leather production also here, where people are walking in chemicals etc. and animals have to watch their friends being slaughtered in front of their eyes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JipYvuDsI6s
      timecode starting 27:46
      4. This is another video which very well summarizes the torture of leather production, shots taken at big farms which directly produce for the automotive industry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgHs239bAnE
      5. Please note that those videos are made by well-known journalists and cameramen who were not influenced by any animal welfare organisation, they supply their footage to the animal rights groups of course. I partly know the creators of the video footage personally and they are all authentic. You don’t have to search long to find cruel production environments anyway.


      Manufacturers reactions:

      We started the very first inquiry years ago, with the result that car manufacturers do not reveal their sources of animal skin AT ALL. If it all would be clean and happening without harm, why don’t they show it to us whereas they are showing us every other detail of their products? They have good reason not to, because there is no such thing as a clean animal skin production without harming cows, humans and the environment. The only thing a manufacturer can do is increase their effort for a better future, and we are helping with in-depth talks and interviews by presenting the increasing customer demand for sustainable luxury. Tesla was the first one to react in a major way now.

      So meanwhile, we more often also get feedback that a lot of manufacturers are working on leather-free interiors and are aware of the situation. E.g. Bentley, Mini and Kia have started vegan car interior programmes. Besides Tesla, Mercedes already shows major choices for sustainable interiors, you always have to pay attention to the details when ordering, of course - and we are happy to give advice. However, much has to be done still and the Autogefuehl community is massively helping in boosting the positive change!


      Help to raise awareness on this subject. Thanks!

      What I have seen so far this is not my favorite video.! THe selection of place, light, angles of the camera was not really good this time. The speech introduction was some kind of a byproduct of usually calmness and precision.. I believe Autogefuel deserves better. The videos are usually have very high standard on the presentation, entertainment and comparison detail. The English was not Professional. Expressions like so far and so on doesn’t make it more professional. I really believe this is a substandard performance of Autogefuel. Apologies for my comments but I was this time really disappointed.
