Serious orange peel, you say?
Hmm.... this is more like the real thing than I imagined.

Still, for $14 it better come with more than 200hp, and a better interior.
(am I doing this right?)

I just sat through a two hour address from our CEO. It is not inconceivable that for the next year you will be able to get some smoking deals on cars. The incentives to get the industry back on track will be huge.

All bets are off on the ages of the buyers of used ones though!

True but insurance companies don't determine what's built, well for the most part. I suppose you could say the influence how it's built, but not what.

So, @Tcoat, do you feel harmonized? Didn't realize that's what they called it these days!

Sounds to me like the new "fitment". Either word would have worked as well.

All I require for this new gen to surpass the current gen and convince me to buy new is a hatch version with an option for 4 doors, and an H6 With 300 HP....

H6 would be nice but I wonder how much weight it adds and will it affect handing too much.

It would be amazing if any new car could be built with zero recalls and then "talented technicians" could just try to succeed at routine oil changes.
