Hypothetical conversation...

Noob: I love Sti's! Their V8 makes them so fast!

StiMan: They have turbo 4 cyls.

Noob: No they don't! I hate 4 cyl cars, they're slow! The STi is fast because of the V8!

StiMan: (brings out links to technical cutaways of the Sti, reviews, etc). Well, this 4 cyl car is fast. Thinking it has a V8 because you hate 4 cyls is retarded, as it's proven they don't have V8s.

Noob: Retarded? Quit giving me attitude because my opinion's different! I had a 4 cyl '94 Impreza and it was slow as hell! I KNOW 4 cyls are slow! I hate them! V8s are fast! The STi is fast, so it has a V8!

StiMan: I proved they have turbo 4 cyls!

Noob: Well, I've hated 4 cyls so long, I'm going to continue to hate them! You can't change my mind! I don't care WHAT proof you posted that they have turbo 4cyls, it's my opinion they have V8s to make them that fast!

StiMan: Dude, we all proved that Stis don't have V8s. It's a fact, why can't you figure that out? You're just being a moron.

Noob: You just can't handle that I have a different opinion than you! You're being mean to me just because my opinion's different!

Chorus: Yeah, StiMan, get off the rag. He has a different opinion than you. So what? No one here needs to know any facts!

..............................

You people act like that noob, but *I'm* the one with the problem. What a f*cking joke.

Guys I am sorry. Ill tone it down. I dont have distaste towards all Fords anyways. I'd take a 93 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 over my Camry anyday, but I certainly wouldnt trade a Taurus for it, or a Focus for that matter (maybe a SVT, but...) Id take a 350 PowerStroke over a Toyota Tundra or a Ridgeline. Chris, I am sorry to have cause all of this trouble, and I know that the Focus that rolled was simply a fluke that can happen to any car.

The A-Class? That's that tiny little wagon thing right? Kinda shaped like an old Oddesy? I hate those things.

LOL....On initial testing at Mercedes a test driver was carrying out a slalom to test suspention etc, and without any warning and travelling at a reasonably slow pace....it flipped

Needless to say they modified the suspension before it's release lol

Just a little edit to my last statement guys.....I seem to recall the problem being something to do with downforce rather than suspension...Either way though, it wasn't too good for publicity lol
