I heard that as well, and even though I kind of like the new S, I don't think it has the same presense that the last one did.

As far as Jaguar is concerned I don't know if I could buy a $75,000 that has similar styling to a Ford Taurus. I really wish they had kept the old XJ, it was such a beautiful car. I know it would probably look dated now, but there is something about the new one that just looks like a cheap, American version of the old one.

The S320 is a mercesdes

mercedes generally has letters before the numbers, ie C, CL, E, S, SL..while BMW has the number with a letter at the end 328i, 740 etc etc

I don't even have a permit yet, but once I get my permit, my dad promises to put me on the waiting list for a green Prius... I'll be an environmental friendly driver, even if not a very good one.

I was thinking randomly today that I want a red Mini Cooper with a leopard print roof and rearview mirrors, I dont know. I dont think it would be tacky, though Id have to see the finished product. Or a black Mini with a white roof and Double-C on the roof and a quilting effect on the body, and double-C in the hubcaps.

Im really surprised Karl hasnt done a Chanel Mini, it's unlike him to not capitalize on something soo young and cool.
