Awww... and I thought Jeff wasn't about like high profile attention seeking... what a waste of money.

You act like higher priced vehicles offer zero added benefit. That is not true. Jeff bought a nicer car because he wanted something that was better than a lower priced car. You don't have to turn a high ticket item into some sort of character flaw.

Not 0 but its terrible value for money. If he wanted performance over flash, he could have done MUCH better. Its not necesarily a character flaw, it could be a human flaw, maybe early middle age crisis? How old is Jeff nowadays? like 38?

so now you have the monopoly of value judgement for a car and can divine a character flaw via that? Typical forum posting is typical

"Performance" is one dimension of quality. You're biased perspective on cars is clouding your perspective of why people buy cars.

I do not have a biased perspective on why people buy cars. Actually that is VERY far off. I just thought JEFF, specifically Jeff, was more of a function person. It turns out that that is not true, that is all I am saying.

Fair enough.

Or maybe I should say fare enough to maintain consistent linguistic incorrectness with my previous posts.

These start at $40k. People are talking like he bought a Ferrari.

Good luck to him. I drive a crappy ford but then I don't like having to worry where I park it or some tosser running a key down it. Insurance cost are stupid were I live too.

Doesn't Norm Chan drive a Lexus too? Same model?

I always enjoy reading threads like this. i find it somewhat fascinating, sad and potentially comical to read opinions about money and nice things or about the people who may or may not have them. poor people awkwardly hating are always my favorite posts.

So that is why Giant Bomb was sold to CBSi....

I was under the (apparently misinformed) impression he bought a Honda Civic like over a year and a half ago.
