You could also just buy the couch......
Ha ! Yes... Well... No : never in the world my gentle wife would accept this in the living room
Where are these made please? They look awesome.
This is an image I picked up off the internet a few years back. Try this place:
I got a good friend that is not only a very busy and cool guy but he is quite wealthy, too.
He does not show his money and acts very sensible and modest considering his serious means.
He drove a 20 year-old Mercedes Benz for more then 500.000 kilometers and told me that he would have no problem to take a trip to Italy with it, still. It was such a reliable machine.
Because there were some bigger repairs in the waiting it was economically not sensible to keep it anymore.
He sold it for 800 EUR and bought a big ca. 15 year old Volvo last week for which he paid EUR 1.200,-.
He said that the new car is such a heavy-duty machine that he would expect it to run for at least for 5 years to come without any problems.
Last week I got my new corporate car. A shiny 45 K EUR Mercedes Benz C class limousine. Quite a wonderful car but I really doubt that it will last nearly as long as those old dinosaurs do because of the silly ammounts of crazy electronics built into it. (In fact you can parallel park it automatically and such things.)
You cannot repair a contemporary car without a laptop and a degree in electronics anymore. And I am sure that they will not provide the spares on those for more then 15 year to come.
That's funny. I'm currently recording a song on this very topic.
Could not agree more. I am saving to buy a new Indian Motorcycle. I thought about getting a roadmaster or chieftain. But when they went to the new ride command which looks awesone by the way but It got me thinking I have to replace my laptops at maximum every 5 years or earlier and cell phone has never lasted more than 3. Knowing that why would want that on a motorcycle? My 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has had the computer replaced 3 years into owning it.

Very true - I know a guy whose indicator was faulty on his 5 series BMW. He went for a new bulb - no can do it's an LED. you have to buy the whole unit £350!!!
Oh and congrats on the new car audept. I also drive a BMW, so good choice. My next car will also be a BMW. But I do signal, just after I look in my mirror, and just before I manouvre
I think that the new goal for cars is not "forever lasting", but "maximum recycling" - at least, I hope so...
You are right, I went to the Porsche dealer in Nashville and bought a 912
No. Really? Do share - if I drive down to your place, can I at least sit in it?
I wish we had more of you down South Mike. I drove my daughter and her friend to Colchester today, my daughters friends Mum and Dad both drive an Audi, and she enquired what the strange ticking noise was coming from the dashboard. It may be the owners of German cars in general.
Me too. My favorite signal is the middle finger, what's yours?
On my way to work in traffic this morning I noticed the car behind me was being driven erratically, wandering out of the lane, getting left behind then suddenly speeding up and almost crashing in to me. The driver was a middle aged woman, not looking where she was going, putting on her makeup in the rearview mirror and sending texts on her phone sitting in her lap!
I saw some great bumper stickers: "Warning! I drive like you do." and, "Watch out for the person behind me."
Horn broken, watch for finger.
Oh she will meet with karma and go full frontal some day. Probably taking out a school mum and one or two kids, but hey... at least she managed to put her make up on.
