    Yup, I definatly need a leather interior. I'm sir smokes-alot, so leather seats are big plus if I don't want the smell sneaking into my interior

    And by American luxury I mean nice big comfy seats, gadgets everywhere and everything you can be sure of European cars will only have it 15years later. American cars had ABS, electric windows and powersteering in the '80's already.... That was something we've had to dream of till mid to late '90's....(on some cars it was an otion if you had lots of money to spend as well though)

    I want a carphone too! Not a cell phone through the radio, but a carphone with a cord, and the dock where the center console is! That would be spiffy.

    Well for the carphone, I imagine a SIM card slot that could work in tandem with your cell. Basically a duplicate card that only allows 1 card access to the network at any 1 given time. So you cant use the carphone and the cell phone at the same time. But I think the cool factor is there!

    THe car I was looking at before I bought my Japanese Honda was an Audi A4, 1990 I believe. It was very nice. All the dash was digital (no needles, all lcd), and their was a carphone! I wanted it sooooo badly, but $5000 for a 15yr old car (at the time) or $7000 for a 3 year old car... Hmmm!

    @2K1..... Yep, audi's go way overpriced! $4000 still isn't unusual for a 1990 audi80 cabrio...... And yes, they really go for that.... I still don't get it.

    I have a nice 3pc jazzkit for that (jep, I know it's expensive, but I figured I have to do myself a favour and get one after 7years of playing kits that were as expensive but couldn't satisfy my needs.)

    Yeah - someone was saying that our SMALL drinks @ mcdonalds is a french large or something to that effect.

    The education system here in the US beats into our minds that we need a complete 3 meals a day otherwise we'll die/be unhealthy. Some people, very unfortunate people, dine on fast food for 3 of those meals. I personally have 1 meal a day but with tons of snacks like fruits/yogurt/coffee throughout so I am not hungry....

    I used to be one of those dudes- I weighed 280lbs at my worst. now i'm down to 190lbs and attract more women than a shoe sale ;]
