I like the Bentley better. Just a personal preference. I'd be too worried about mashing the front end and side skirts coming out of any driveway.

And Asians love CASH.. asian in nature rather have cash in their pocket than a Line of credit. Hence why they survived 2008 =)

What an ignorant post. Sorry to be off topic here, but just want to mention last I checked US's economy is $15.2 trillion dollars while China is $7.2 Trillion dollars with over 4x the amount of people! Even if you add up China, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan, the US's economy is still larger despite only having 1/5th of the population of those areas combined.

What you need to ask yourself is why don't Americans feel rich and why is all that money going to the top 5% of the population. Don't blame the Chinese for our problems. This country actually has a lot of money. Somebody is being very greedy here and its not the Chinese with 1.3 billion people and only a $7.2 trillion dollar economy. What about EU and US with a combined 800 million population and a economy of $32 trillion whining about asians being too rich? Now thats greedy... lol Numbers don't lie but maybe the media sometimes does.....

The U.S. total wealth is $60 trillion - not $15 trillion. Our total debt is $15 trillion of which ~$3 trillion belongs to foreign nations (China owns on the order of $1 trillion of our debt).

The entire discussion stemmed from talking about about purchasing power as determined by the wealth of 'millionaires' among different nations (Chinese "millionaires" vs U.S. "millionaires). GDP is far more removed from determining the purchasing power of a nation right now compared to net worth, you fucking moron.

Then again I wouldn't expect some snot nosed, 22 year old baby to understand. Go back to jerking off to your Kate Upton pictures. This is discussion for grown-ups.

Who cares where his dad is from? He is obviously nice enough to share photos and his experiences with fellow car entusiasts. OP I am glad your Dad has such a nice stable and you get to share time with him enjoying the cars. Thats what it is all about anyways. I am sure he worked his ass off for the money and deserves it. No jealousy but props to obviously a hard working man who enjoys cars and showing them to his son.

Thanks for that, but again, he said "The US economy is $15 trillion" to which you said "US wealth is $60 trillion - not $15 trillion"...which he wasn't even discussing. I'd agree that wealth is more relevant than GDP, but for the sake of the argument
