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.

    Pretty much. In fact, I required stitches right at my hairline when I was 9 and the distance between my scar and current hairline hasn't really changed at all.

    How expensive are european imports in comparison to cars from the US?

    I mean, if an old and used BMW, Golf or Alfa were roughly the same price (new or sued, doesn't matter) as those you've shown here, I'd pick the former ones every day.
    I realize I may be way off. Just interested to hear the price difference and how common european cars are. Mostly thinking about the middle or upper-middle segment with Jaguar, Audi, BMW, cheaper Porsches, the sportier Golfs, etc...

    European cars are definitely more expensive, especially to maintain. That being said German cars are super popular where I live. For example I live on a block with 8 houses on it and 6 of the houses have at least one BMW, Mercedes or Audi in front of it, and I don't live in the wealthy part of my town.

    If you are at all mechanically inclined, ownership costs of European cars can be greatly reduced.

    For example, I have a '78 BMW 320i, which is a beater, but would be really expensive to have any "professional" work on. Luckily though, BMW has a hugely active DIY community which has allowed me (who was previously entirely ignorant) to do all the work on my car over the past 4 years. Like, pretty much anything that can go wrong with your car, there are gobs of threads about it on various BMW forums.

    My wife has a 2010 ford fusion that has just had a couple of hiccups lately, but has cost us more to maintain because there is very little good information about DIY troubleshooting and repairs.
