There will always be people saying you're just paying more money for the name, but o well. Let them fix their Hyundai with the tools they saved money on by buying from Harbor Freight.
This is the attitude that killed American cars, and it took them damn near 20 years to sort of get it back. The "we are BMW, we are the sh!t and we don't need to try" eventually comes to a screeching halt. While other manufacturers are innovating, you are at a standstill. Much like Lexus (LS400) FORCED the germans to upgrade their models, and fast, it is car companies like Hyundai that will keep car makers such as BMW on their toes, trying not to be complacent.
