Rum, beer, women, movies, nice websites, gaming, etc., without interrupting the flow of martial threads.

I paid roughly $10K USD for a brand new 2018 base model with 14 miles/22 km on it.

lucky America - consider, that it is imported to the US,
here, where production is done, for the basic model is over $3000 more!,
why?
when here average Joe is earning something like 5000 euros. /a year of c./
Thank You uncle Sam :-\

Nice tout, gonna check it out.


During something uncomfortably close to half a century of driving I have had fewer repairs needed with automatic transmissions. One man for datum does not an argument make, and it is possible that when you give me a stick shift I am a bit of a Mario.

The quaint idea of downshifting for corners and rocketing out was obsolete with BMW's invention of the antiskid brake. You are not going to lock a wheel, because the computer won't let you do that, so you can brake while you corner, no problem.

In my day, some people could parallel park and some couldn't. And we liked it that way.

Some could heel and toe and some couldn't. And we liked it that way.

Some could modulate their non-power assist brake pedal like Nikke fookin Lauda and some couldn't. And we liked it that way.

I dreamed of being an F1 driver and now everyone is. This equality garbage is for the birds!
