Car manufacturers have about an 8% gross margin. In 2000 they had a 20% margin. Think about that. 8% gross margin is **** and companies can't survive long with a margin like that unless they pump...

Don't worry -- you'll finally give up trying to manage scratches & other imperfections at about the 1 year mark and will then really begin to enjoy the car.

Observations at 9K

1. The drive train seems smoother, quicker, and more responsive.
