1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Importing cars from the states has heavy tax consequences. That as well as annoying procedures and regulations.

    "If your vehicle qualifies for importation, you must register it in the RIV program when you report to the CBSA office on arrival in Canada. The RIV program registration fee is $195 plus goods and services tax (GST), and the Quebec sales tax (QST) for vehicles entering through a port in Quebec, or the harmonized sales tax (HST) in those provinces that are participating on the HST assessment. You will also have to pay any customs duty and other import assessments, including taxes that may apply"

    I know. I suppose I should have picked something more generic to begin with. Oh well...

    Kind of a shame about the new Aston, all of the proportions are heavy handed and it plays way too much to the tastes of the tasteless. The DB9 still looks good in light of this thing; this rear treatment looks like it came out of a Wings West catalog from the mid 1990's:

    Looks ok to me. The rims are shit.

    They ruined the 911 with that heavy back end, looks off now:

    JV killing it in this thread now too I see.

    FWIW, paying cash when super low interest rates are available? A dollar today is worth more than a dollar in five or six years so you are in fact paying more by buying cash.

    You're 100% right.

    Problem is that some people are so bad with money that they'd never complete a payment cycle. We all know someone like that.

    I think the rear looks good.

    Wheels are ghastly, though. WTF were they thinking!

    And the irony is that he's financing his M5 too, I believe.

    :facepalm:

    Not that there's anything wrong with financing if the interest rates make sense and you can get better returns elsewhere (what you're saying).

    He also took student loans and credit card to fund his investments. You can pull this up, in this thread from about a week ago.

    I don't understand Zagato. Every time the main idea is changing the back. Their Aston was ok, but the BMW is terrible - I think the proportions are off.
