As a matter of fact, when taxi operators begin picking up a vehicle, it tells you that the total cost of ownership and passenger requirements have been well optimized in that vehicle.
That is my point too. For many of us who puts our hard earned money into a vehicle have some unique requirement. Based on that we would have already narrowed down our requirement to a few choices and then he wants opinion from other to finalize it. This thread itself is an example. But the entire thread is hijacked and a hype is created depending on who shouts better

anup and I met electronically on this thread - we found a lot of similar interests, findings and thought processes - therefore I guess we may have gotten a bit carried away where we possibly ought to have PM-ed each other and shared experiences / views.

However, by airing those thoughts abot Ghosts in the machine and hill driving etc I dont think either of us have committed some kind of infraction or have we?

However, it also appears that when we Scorp owners wax even marginally and occasionally eloquent about our machines there are many predators swooping down on us so to say! WOnder why

I doubt any predator would swoop down unless given a chance

The threads to wax eloquent about our cars are the Long Term Ownership threads - long may we wax on them about our dream machines. And God help any predator who would dare to swoop on one of those ownership threads or try to hijack itcheers:
