I picture your dad driving a tercel. He is saving every penny while you piss it away on a bloated Audi. Your mom has to be crying into her mahjong hand.

Something from 30 rock:

The first generation works their fingers to the bone so the second generation can go to the college.

The second generation works so the third can snow board.

I screwed it up but you get the point.

Gayest choice in cars ever! You're an Asian house wife.

Bentley are for old corporate lawers, but if you're happy with it. They are amazingly comfortable and have a great sound system. Great engine too but the car is heavy as hell.
Enjoy it.

Only color in North America means someone ordered it and didn't end up buying it. Hand polished rims means some YTS kid rubbed them down with a bottle of turtle wax.

Congrats you've just leased the turd someone else created and was causing constipation in the Audi inventory.

Looking forward to the pictures.

Congrats, I want to see pics. Also, is there a pic of Neil floating around? Matching the car with a face would make this image whole.

That's going to be confusing. Why would that only make it in one color? Cost savings?

Drive safely

Neal keeps his true identity very secret ... I imagine him as an Asian Danny DeVito ... dripping with gold medalians and built up cowboy boots to compensate for the lack of height.

Not being a hater, but most people will think it's a Chrysler 300.
Personally, if I could afford one, I would have one.

someone ordered a custom color and didn't take delivery ... it probably looks like shit and they hated it when it arrived ... style and taste are inversely proportional to wealth.
