          This piece of junk is more expensive than Lexus LFA. However no one complained about its price the way they did for LFA ... Perhaps because LFA is a better car than this and European fagrats could not take it in ... It must be it ... I don't see any other reason because LFA ended up being the fastest car of its time with street tires around Nurburgring. This piece of junk did not even do shite !!!!

                                          Wished mercedes gave Chrysler the chance to make the ME412 Chrysler back then. Guess they said f*** that car and went for the mercedes SLR because they knew after spending millions on that project. If they'd gave Chrysler the go ahead mercedes SLR wouldnt have gotten much sales

Jeremy normally wins but not always. Eurotunnel was very smooth and easy when I used it, riding abroad on motorbikes with pals. I decided to stay on in France a few more days and still just turned up at departures and got any train back.
