Do I understand from your statement that you understand us "Europeans" to all be on the poverty line? Oh how we all aspire to be wealthy and sophisticated like you Americans!

p.s. I'm not trying to provoke a European - American war (I like you guys) merely pointing out that it is statements like that which tarnish Americans as ignorant.
Best chuckle of the day! Amen brother.

It's because you are all on the dole.

Face it, the US is awesome, and the rest of the world is a 3rd world shithole that can barely afford to eat.

Just in case there is any question /sarcasm

2016 model year; 5000 units to the US...

Pretty standardized trend here at this point, why does everyone expect different?

Mebbe the added "S" will allow you to turn off stability control?
..yeah, right.. who am I kidding?
Anything with an "R" badge of any kind and no ability to turn off the electric witchery is FAIL in my book.
