  2. Not that; talk about unfair import tariffs / company partnering in the Chinese market. That's years and years and years ongoing. Chinese import tariffs were (until minutes ago) 25%.
  3. Not that far. Late Jan 2018 is when Trump announced the opening salvos in the trade war.... that is, actually announcing tariffs. I know because I watched the stock market drop.

    With today's ability to mold plastics, one would think inspiration from the past would take hold to bring design / style elements into modern cars.

    Lexus News: The Uncertain Future of the Lexus GS and IS

    I like the E-Class, but the CT6 is way more handsome of a vehicle. When you see those lightsaber fangs coming at you, it really grabs your attention. It's an Escalade. Luxury comes at a price.

    My dad had colon cancer so at recommendation of his doctors I started doing colonoscopy at 40. The worst part as was mentioned is the preparation, and bloating after the procedure, try to schedule the procedure when you are off from work before and after. Otherwise it is not a big deal.

    I Drove a McLaren and Now I'm Ruined

    The previous owner of my company had 650 Spider which he occasionally brought in, among a number of others like 911, Lambo, MB AMG and few more. The cars like this McLaren or Ferraris, Lambos are amazing and drool worthy, it is just too bad they out of reach to 99.9% of people.

    Lexus News: The Uncertain Future of the Lexus GS and IS

    I want a Cadillac about 10 inches longer and 3 inches wider than the Ct6. Whether the next gen CT6 grows in size, or a 'CT8' appears, I'd like to see a range topper noticeably larger. As for pricing, overlap already occurs everywhere. Doesn't the E63 overlap the S550 by 10 or 15 grand?

    Lexus News: The Uncertain Future of the Lexus GS and IS

    Displacement tax still hits that, 7.5% tax on 1.6 to 2.0 liter engines, as high as 20% on 4 liter engines. The 2.7T would get hit with the same tax as the Cadillac 3 liter TT V6, might as well use that then.

    I've had it done. nothing to be afraid of. you're knocked out the whole time. It is largely due to the American diet. They don't follow this recommendation in countries that have better balanced diets.
  23. When it comes to any American car marque, Sergio DGAF. FCA should ideally be broken up and out of Sergio's hands.

  25. They should build a Wagoneer 7 seat SUV to compete with the Pilot/Traverse/Explorer, and a Grand Wagoneer to compete with the Escalade and Navigator and an Ultimate Wagoneer priced at $150,000 with Wrangler off road capability and Maserati level interior with a twin turbo V6, and offer a Ultimate Wagoneer Hellcat for $200,000 and an Ultimate Wagoneer Enzo with a Ferrari V12 for $350,000. The demand is so high for SUVs all 3 will sell out.

    New England Journal of Medicine now recommends that men start getting every 5 years a colonoscopy starting at age 45. Used to be age 50, but due to increases in cancer, they now have recommended that doctors have their men patientes get this starting earlier. American Cancer Society is telling everyone now. https://www.cancer.org/healthy/find-cancer-early/cancer-screening-guidelines/american-cancer-society-guidelines-for-the-early-detection-of-cancer.html So, yes I have hit the big 50 and just had my yearly physical. Great shape, but have to do this procedure. So anyone have some words of wisdom that has had this done before?

    For the most part. He does buy some super exclusive/ultra high end cars that he keeps. For instance, he has an older (05-06) Ford GT, an 05 Porsche Carrera GT, an older SL65 AMG Black Series, a Porshce 918, an 08 Veyron, and a new Chiron.
