It has awesome performance, a unique and modern style, it's much more practical, and costs less....
I've read some long-term tests on the R8, and snow (provided you're not plowing through inches of it) won't be a problem. Just get proper tires and enjoy making rooster-tails. I'd be nervous of using it as a daily driver, though. Some idiot will put a ding into it soon enough, and you'll probably rash the wheels within a month.
I remember that season when Harris had a blood clot go through his heart. I wonder what will happen with the Cornelia Marie now.

Also, what kind of view options are there? My preference is to be able to control the view similarly...
Finally beat Mass Effect 2. It is a great game that didn't disappoint, and I tend to be pretty picky. At first I was worried when I heard that Bioware was going for (their words) a "Call of Duty" combat experience. I'm a CRPG fan, ever since I blew up the Master with my Turbo Plasma Rifle in the original Fallout. I like my character sheets and statistics and formulas. Mass Effect had that, albeit highly distilled, but still recognizable. And Dragon Age, another Bioware...

The UAW won't be getting much of anything else. I actually like the Ford Flex. It's like a Coleman water cooler on wheels, and it's low enough to the ground to escape all pretense of going off-road. I saw that Merc someone posted before, only the one I see is...
My copy of Mass Effect 2 (collector's edition!) came in yesterday and I played it for the first time. Holy crap it is awesome. I miss the deeper rpg elements Bioware had in their games from 5 years ago but I can forgive them because they've kept the in-game Codex and the planetary exploration is relaxing, almost therapeutic. So far, ME vs ME2: + No inventory! Well you still get a quasi-inventory of alternate weapon selections, armor customization and your medi-gel...
No, you're confusing help with halp. The UAW needs lots of halp.
Sounds awesome. Any major revisions for the interior? I know that's a big criticism of the C6.
