Re: Mercedes won't fix $1.7 million car

sounds to me the fool didn't check on the differences in regulations for uk/europe/us road cars before buying it and is now, instead of actually wanting to fix the car, wants his money back to cover his stupid ass.

then again, it is hard to say anything conrete witout knowing the contract.

Re: Mercedes won't fix $1.7 million car

they can't even sell it for scrap metal cause it is carbon fiber.

They could sell it to those guys who want to fly in space, im sure theres a way to recycle carbon fiber.

Don't ever look at cars as just imports or domestics. Just because a car is made in a certain country doesn't mean that it is anything like another car from that country. An example of this is Mitsubishi reliability, just because they are Japanese doesn't mean that they are as reliable as a Honda or Toyota.

Re: Mercedes won't fix $1.7 million car

Another extremely rare car in a video game. NFSHP2 has a level where I take a murcielago police car(not a gallardo) and I have to ram the clk gtrs and Mclarens to sh**! I eventually got used to the level, now after reading that there's less than 10 IRL, I may have to sit down. What have I done...
