Did you saw the new Chevy Cruz ad, waited all the time till light was green and revved up when it turned amber. Pretty insane. Is this what you should be doing?
I can do that in my Getz. I don't need a Cruz for that.

I can do 140+ KMPH also. Doesn't need a Endeavour for that.

Question is, would I?

Supreme excellence is in succeeding without resorting to battle. "The Greatest Victory is the one that is achieved without unsheathing the sword."

Hope the ad agencies are listening.

Are you quite sure about that? I remember various instances where magazines like ACI hint that they drove at high speeds on the highway and the car felt perfectly stable etc. etc. In addition, I know ACI takes cornering shots (with the tail out) on city streets since they mentioned in one test (that of the Nano) that they waited for traffic to clear before taking the shot.

Everyone speeds and honestly, I'm not going to complain about that as long as they do it in places where they don't put others at risk. I only have an issue with the beer comment since it is rather unnecessary (he's evaluating the car) and it hints at drinking and driving even if he didn't actually drink and drive.
