Re: Why are new cars so expensive?

"They" aren't "all" expensive, only those tiers you drool over and lust to have. Adequate transportation models are available (of course those models are equipped with less uh neighborhood status...).

Re: Awesome. A new noise!

MCA FB is the array of Forum topics plus even more but like Carlisle parking lot open-ended bench racing sessions where there are ad billboards literally everywhere and people you don't know write everything that happens down so they can figure out how to sell it to someone else.
