I was originally in favor of SBS when it was first announced as an additional layer on top of limited service.
Except it hasn't been executed poorly. It certainly could have been better, but you endlessly complain about the attempts to actually improve it. (SEE WOODHAVEN BOULEVARD)
If a partial implementation as already resulted in a downgrade for auto users, there is no reason to assume that a full implementation will lessen the negative impact on auto users. It will only exacerbate the situation.
A. There is no reason to assume that the partial implementation will align with full implementation as to the effects it will have on autos.
B. There is no reason to assume that there is in fact a negative effect on auto users.
Therefore, as both premises are false, there is no reason to assume the conclusion is true.
A parallel situation is the bike lanes on half of Queens Blvd which has greatly worsened traffic there. It can not be assumed that when the project is fully completed, that traffic will even get worse, not better.
While the bike lanes are essential and therefore cannot be removed, bus lanes should be installed as well to get eliminate the delays.
