bugatti still charges for special options. At 1.5 mill shouldn't it be a checkbox also?

No one is spared from this. The Mustang and the E92 M3 are blatant offenders. But the 911 made a career out of it.

EXACTLY. What's wrong with that? Simple lineup. If a customer wanted a 911 GT3RS4 Type S 3.9, let them have it, but keep it out of the model range.

Probably because you're hungry and are about to be stranded.

Albee is an apple customer. Walks in, points at the pretty one, asks if it comes in white and walks out a happy customer

Bugatti has already been criticized for all their "limited editions". We are not the first ones to observe this. The car is limited enough as it is, lol.

that's not as exciting. I'm guessing i'll fill up with something like 16.3 gallons. Just have to be careful of the right turns

I'm dropping by Bryan's tonight since my work is already so close, and I have to stay until 6:30. I might stop by Cerritos, but I'm not sure. Christie's sister is paying us to camp out for her to get the iPhone.

You're just like a walking electromagnetic pulse, all electronics around you get fried and scrambled.
