Budget sounds about right for a film with BB mostly in car mode and radio talking still. Most of that budget I expect will get used on the decepticons. Barricade seems likely with the motif of muscle car and police car. So I think we may still have some car chase stuff, but this film overall seems more like a character piece that'll focus on BB's recuperation from years on the run and fighting. Probably nearing the point he gives up on his scout mission or has given up, and is stumbled on by this auto maintenance class. Kind of breakfast club meets Herbie, with a dash of classic driving/chase movies. Neither were on earth yet at this point. The movie isn't even released yet. You haven't read a script. You have no idea what they're planning or how they planned it. How do you know it's not quality? I think you need to stop talking non-sense and let them do their thing.
