    So you find it absurd that I would question having a six year old Rover as your DD yet tell me you would feel uncomfortable owning one outside the warranty? This thread is really getting weird.

    I'm a partner in the company, and that's how I bought it. Leased at first, and when the lease was up we just bought the car cheap. As said before, I also have a mechanic (working on my Jag) who can fix anything on the Rover if it goes wrong.

    I really don't have anything to contribute, but I want to urge you to keep posting.

    My most sincere apologies for my posts on the previous page of this thread. I would also like to offer my condolences for the post of this alien-like creature. My grandson edited the post while I was in the bathroom. I believe that particular character is referred to as "Noidberg" if I am correct.

    This is the worst, most unimaginative trolling I've seen in years. Shouldn't you guys be on honda-tech or something?

    With all regards, sir, why does it matter whether this gent owns this vehicle through his company or through a personal transaction? What matters is the machine itself, and he most certainly uses the car as his own.
    Thank you,
    Neville D. Irving

    Sure, fair enough. It was a company car, now it is mine. Still registered under the business' name though. I would describe it as a company car, apparently others would not.

    Registered under the company but you own it? Okay, that makes sense. Or not.

    Allow us to permit for this discussion to depart from the subject of the ownership of this vehicle by Mr. Lebowitz (I fancy your watch, by the way) and move onto more concrete matters consisting of less scolding and offensive back talk.
    Thank you,
    Nev

    Dear "jet,"
    I’m sorry, but are you not astounded by the possibility to change gears in 100 milliseconds? The Ferrari is capable of doing so - unlike any traditional gear change. Have you ever had the erotic pleasure of being behind the wheel of a fine automobile such as a Ferrari? I doubt it. It is such as your body is one with the car and your minds are in sync. I highly doubt that you have ever felt that sort of spiritual connection to a vehicle; especially one of the caliber of a Ferrari. I suggest you at least care to test drive this wonder of engineering.
    Sincerely,
    Dr. Irving

    Yes, I do find it an absurd statement.

    I also don't see what's so hard to understand about someone being a partner in a company and having a car registered to the company. You own the company, the company owns the car, ergo you own the car. It's not that difficult to decipher.

    Correction:
    The fellow from the tele program my grandson was watching is named "Dr. Zoidberg."
