Business accounts usually have a good deal, when it comes to exchange rates etc.

Money comes from everywhere, can't just sell clothes for my eatin n' drinkin. Japan be expensive man. redface.gif it's pretty hard to get anybody to feel sorry for you if it's forex though, like losing a quarter when you try to make your dollars into yen. It sucks. I've found the best solution is to take the American approach and pretend that everything that makes me uncomfortable just doesn't exist redface.gif

This intrigues me, how does this work? Is it strictly automotive or is it more general? What's the next color trend on the horizon?

A Mighty Wind was funny, but Best in Show was really hilarious.

went to the car show today, pretty good showing

 

a couple of favorites

Audi A7, looks very good, low and wide, much better than I expected

the A8, awesome

 

Jag XJL portfolio(?) looked pretty swift, long, wide and low, but not my style

 

the masi's gran tourisimo and quattroporte, very stylish, but again, not my taste

 

caddy vts sedan, black, American muscle car with some German refinement...a really nice package

 

mercedes SLS AMG, very nice

S63 AMG, kind of cool, but odd looking at the same time

 

Lexus lfa, cool, but silly money for something not really THAT great

 

new 911S, nice, but not my cup of tea (I like fast sedans or large coupes with decent rear seats) but it does look very nice: longer WB, shorter overhangs, seems wider and a appears lower

more 'curvateous' and organic in form

 

and a real surprise, the new BMW M5 in blue with the lt grey interior..monster

not a 'pretty' car, but definitely functionally beautiful...no price on it yet, deliveries start end of the summer...

 

I was hoping for an Audi S6 and/or S8, but no luck

 

I got a couple of crappy cell phone pics, will try to get a few up

post #3158 of 14976

yep, like them both

waiting for guffman wasn't too bad either

was there one other they did? more recent?
 

but spinal tap (many of the same crew) is killer

Hmmm, test drove the QX 56 today. Really has some nice acceleration. Fit and finish look pretty good too.

horrid looking tho pio

Piob, those are HUGE. Did it handle well?
post #3162 of 14976
the infiniti is not a bad choice if you can get past the exterior. We have the M56 and, while I hated the car because of the looks initially, I love the car now. It's got a lot of neat features, great ride, tons of power and all around fun to drive.

This model is a huge improvement over the prior one. The prior one was based on the Titan platform and drove exactly like you would expect a pickup truck to drive that was build in the US. This one is based on the Patrol that is built in Japan and widely considered the SUV limo of choice for wealthy folks around the world (not sold in the US). It handles quite well, low body roll, but feels bigger than my GL. My GL drives like a far smaller vehicle and handles way better than any full size SUV with a nice ride has a right too. The QX is almost there but not quite. However, it sits a bit higher (I like that) and accelerates like a bat out of hell, beating my GL by about .4 second 0-60. Also, Nissan has improved the slush box. It is not a seven speed too and nearly as good as the MB.

I've never seen a Nissan Patrol (or anything Japanese-made in that same class) in Japan, fwiw. redface.gif

Is it a size issue (no small dick joke)?

There's a youtube out there of a turbo Patrol drag racing a lambo somewhere in the ME I would guess from the audio.

Huh, seems there is a ton of Patrol turbo. Do a youtube search.
