    Those are about 2,300 Nissans, including Infiniti EX, M, and and FX models that were bound for the United States, and Nissan lost about 3% of its value because of it..

    I think way too many folks like having a sunroof. When you think about it, as a driver, it's a pretty useless feature. You don't even get to enjoy it much.

    A must-have for Cali operations; no point in having California sun and weather without letting as much of it into the car as possible..

    i'll bite on the sunroof thing.

    I, as a DRIVER, not a motor vehicle operator, love having a sunroof. Those summer cruises, whipping through the woods, or cruising along the river, or just driving wherever, it's a much more pure feeling to have the sun hitting your head, and even more air flowing around you. It's like a grab at a convertible, but not having to deal with the soft top in the wonderful minnesota winter.

    Good point about the soft-top. Might take another decade, but I see the technology on hard-top convertibles becoming less expensive. We'll be seeing models from Ford, Chevy, and Dodge being made available to the general public. Folks will be able to enjoy true open-air driving. No more worries about thieves or girls basically driving alone in rape-mobiles.

    Trust me, if I was anywhere near an R8 I would have noticed. I suppose someone could mistake one for a TT, but I look at cars far too much to miss one (and far too much for my own good...).

And three, the top is down. Any determined pervert can easily yank her out of her car, or jump in through the top. Thus the term "rape-mobile." Since that's usually what often follows next.

    If you're a guy, you have to worry about some low-life slashing your soft-top if you park on a lonely street at night. Either as a prank, or to steal what's inside your ride. Leave the top down, and your seats might get slashed. Or, more likely, guys walk by and use your car as a trash can. If you're a woman, there's an extra disadvantage.

    I posted that one on the day it was introduced; As much as I like the look of the satin finish, it's too ridiculously high-maintenance for a daily driver..

    You'll see what I mean when you see it, it's one of those cars that doesn't stand out unless you're looking right at it, an ideal cops-don't-notice car..

    I'm pretty sure that's at the wrecking yard. All of the cars are damaged. The article along with that photo said the owner crashed to the car into the gates of his villa. Note the square damage shown in the second photo here.

    Car enthusiasts should take turns beating the owner with an instrument of their choice.

    Car crash at the track would be understandable. But who's the trust-fund baby who's so horribly inexperienced at driving that he crashed into the gates of his villa?!?!

    I'm coming over, and I'm bringing a rubber hose as my choice of instrument.

    I noticed it was in a junkyard. I just personally found it amusing that regardless of it's awesomeness its ultimate resting place is no different than a humble automobile. Kinda reminds me of humans.

    If you mean two eyes, two ears, and all the same organs inside the torso, then yes; you are completely right. If you mean as a whole, if you mean in all the important ways that count; nope. I've run into adults who were indeed very different and much better (or worse) than other humans in the areas that matter most.

    I was inferring more along the lines of no matter how tarted up with stuff(implants, clothes, accessories) people can or will try to do make themselves "nicer", in the end we all put our pants on the same way so to speak.

    That's funny you should mention the sound of the Veyron, it's exactly what I find unique about this car. I find the high pitch moskito sound of all the ferrari/lamborgigni really ugly. I think their sound is empty, metallic, ears hammering as opposed to the powerfull and "filled" sound of the Veyron but that's just my opinion.

    Actually, its those very "trust fund baby" types that make things like Veyrons possible. Lord knows it wasnt made for you.
