I wouldn't call BMW's way a benefit, unless people were replacing their wheel speed sensors more often from wire fatigue failure. Essentially, it's a non-issue, and the nice thing about Porsche bundling more wires together and making them more permanent, is that they become stronger and have more stress relief.

Wheel speed sensors are still a wear item, but the harness shouldn't be.

While you're at it, tell BMW to stop using wires to put power and signal into the trunk, doors, engine, transmission, and drivetrain.

I have no doubt cyberlando is your offspring with logic like this.

This week has not impressed the boss much. I've been too sleepy during work hours, and haven't been saying the right things.

She's doing pretty bad, and not living in california anymore, so I don't have that ability. You should tell her on facebook or AIM or something.

I have no doubt cyberlando is your offspring with logic like this.
And the trunk bundle breaks doesn't it? I do recall using that exact example.
It should be a replaceable part of the harness with a connector.

Sigh, I think you're making a better case that he's your offspring.
