I really like that steering wheel. Kuttapan can you find out if there is a similar one available with air-bags.

Thumbs up

F450, IMHO, the Maybach don't belong here.

I know, that stretching the already stretched version of the S-Class (as Top Gear puts it) might be equivalent to toeing the line. But still, it's done real nice and no way looks weird.

Although, Top gear says (in jest) it's slightly longer than Finland.
Now that's wacky

I don't know, most stretch cars crack me up. Even the stretch Cayenne looks wacky IMO. But I suppose since the Maybach is unusually long already, I just thought it was really weird to want to stretch it even more. The reason I posted that was not because it looked funny, just the idea.....

Hope you get what I mean.

Saw an Ikon with a really wacky paintjob at Santacruz. The upper half was painted pink, while the lower half was painted white, something like a candy or a lollypop!

Reminds me of those bars we used to attach to our BMX cycles so another person could stand behind!

provided they actually are resilient, they could be quite functional - imagine all the rear fender benders it could avoid

Stretch Cayenne, Hummmmmmmer, etc, now those are wacko.

And i get your drift regards the Maybach. Some people just aren't satisfied, i guess!

They are a new type of parking sensor. As soon as you feel the bump, stop reversing. Foolproof method without damaging the bumper.
