I spent all of last year in Japan, and believe me, some of those are not too extreme. Those people are NUTS about their cars..Of course, on most rides, DVD, phone, etc is standard, and the cars are literally "thrown" away after 3 years because of the Japanese Compliance Inspection (JCI) that sometimes costs more than the car is worth at that point. I knew Americans that were exempt from the inspection that were driving 1999, 2000 Lexus' GS3 and 400's for under 2 grand...CRAZY!!
