      Hmm, it sounds like you've taken most of the right steps. Frankly, I'm surprised they haven't agreed to cover it (unless as one poster mentioned there's some ongoing litigation around this issue).

      I'll just leave this here so you can read up a bit on what's actually going on in the industry now, as opposed to ten years ago. ...

      I also routinely traveled to Monterrey, Mexico, in my last job to support my line. And even though the area was considered much safer than other spots with significant cartel activity, local law...

      Wow. You seem pretty worked up because I tried to help clarify point of the post. I don't care who posts it: if you miss the point of a reasonably worded post, especially after others have made the...

      A trifle paranoia about going to the country with the most kidnappings of any country in the world, and the 8th most per capita, which has seen a 285% increase over the past ten years? That's not...

      I would *suspect* that a lot of this is based on where the car was made: for example, most Asian countries would have very high import taxes for cars built elsewhere, but cars manufactured there...

      As mentioned several times, this isn't the point of the OP's question. The question isn't "where is the cheapest car sold", it's "which country would have the highest price on a car that is sold...

      No. Outgassing comes from plastics and flame retardants, not leather.

      They are very similar, and in most state laws are inexorably linked. And any subtle differences have nothing to do with the discussion at hand.

      Exactly. I'm all in favor of castle laws (as is the state of Texas), but every one of them that I've read is intended to PREVENT a crime from occurring (or prevent a "larger" crime from occurring)....

      I'm not exactly sure what your point is: if a car manufacturer claims the interior is leather, it is leather: leather is the hide of a cow or bull that has been chemically treated to be pliable and...

      Never mind that this isn't actually an invite, it's an invite to APPLY to hopefully be chosen to attend. How do you get this "exclusive" invite to apply? Well, you've got to be the kind of high...

      Finally drove an F80 M4 today. Overall, I liked it quite a bit. I agree w/ Toaster29 that the door panels and dash are a step in the wrong direction in terms of plastic quality. Very cheap...

      WTF? Does Hawc have naked pictures of your sister or something? This is a useless, pointless, look-at-me thread, like most of those started by OP. You had it right the first time when you locked it.

      I think you're probably right, but I'm going to measure it anyway. The only power draw I should have before ~5:00PM is the fridge and whatever the hot water heater pulls to maintain the water temp...

      It's actually fairly common to run the filter at night. In the end, as long as the water is getting turned over a few times a day, night/day doesn't really make a difference. Weekends/holidays are...

      Wow! Other than when the Cougar Ace listed over and all of those Mazdas had to be destroyed, I don't think I've ever heard of a car being "totaled" during shipment. Any idea what happened?

      Ran some calcs based on my last few bills, and the results weren't as clear cut as I'd hoped. We used ~1500kW/h average the past few months. I didn't mention a few other power hogs: pool filter,...
