    SL550 or Jaguar XKR?

    Quote: Originally Posted by Sleestack AMV8 isn't available in a slushbox yet and the DB9 is more than I want to spend on his car. In that case, if you spend little more there's a Bentley Continental GT. I do like the Maserati GT alot, but no avail at the moment.

    SL550 or Jaguar XKR?

    It's really tough choices, but why limit yourself to those two cars??? -MBenz SL550 -BMW M6 -Audi R8 -Caddy XLR-V -Aston Martin V8 Vantage -Porsche 911 S4 -Jaguar XKR I think all are super nice in its own way. But personally I'd go with AMV8. Why? Because you'd be James Bond, not German.

    Panasonic RP-HTX7.... I am totally amazed.

    no one into pda-phones ?

    I know many people who use Blackberry and happy with it. Also while commuting, the Blackberry 8700 series seems to be the most popular choice. Also my company uses pretty much Blackberry officially. Not much audio and camera capabilities.

    E2C or 3?

    I had an older version and still much better than E2 for sure. If the newer version improved with tighter bass, it should be even bettern than Ety ER6i.

    How's your MLB team doing?

    Wow, totally suprising to see so many METS fans... It's about time they pull together. I'm more Mets than Yanks. I really think Randolph did a great job putting the chemistry together with this young talents and expensive veterans. Can they win this year? Perhaps not. But I hope so...

    HDCD/SACD/CD Player recommandation?

    I have been following this Samsung HD-DVD960/1080 for sometime. It's really interesting to upconvert to 1080p via HDMI...I don't know if there's really picture and image improvement though. Only the 1080 model carries SACD/DVD-A capability, but the 960 seems to be the economical choice around...

    Who Will Win The Soccer World Cup in Germany, June 9 -July 9, 2006?

    Talent wise, England has the best chance since their only cup in the 60's. But they don't have the heads to win it. Experience wise, Brazil should win the cup with all the players in top leagues around the world. But they're proving to be not so hungry of a team. Team manager wise...
