    AWD would be a killer, err.. lifesaver feature in the winter. I’ll probably switch to a V60 plug-in hybrid with AWD when we make some kids.

    Nice to see this point being defended by an Italian.

    I say once you put a scorpion badge on it, it's a man's car. I thought this was a minority opinion, but there seems to be a lot of support on this thread for it. [me- 6'3", bmw 135i coupe]


    Also wanted to add, it looks like there are price drops on the "Last Call" items on the Schiit website, including Eitr for $99. Get 'em before they're gone forever...

    Actually Holland is not incorrect. It's an informal way of naming this small country with a big taste. Us Dutch are not known for being very formal

    I guess that depends on whom you speak to.

    Damn, why are the Schiit shipping rates all over the map???

    I ordered a Hel last night and the cheapest (USPS) was $15.99, I just ordered a Magni3 Heresy and USPS was even more, but FedEx was under $14?

    I drive a V60 AWD here in Colorado. Not a hybrid unfortunately. Drives great up to the mountains and never a problem with snowy/icy conditions. We let the kids make kids now, just enjoying the grandkids.

    I just turned 30 earlier this year so there's still plenty of time for me to make kids, and practice making them, too. :darthsmile:

    Some speculation ahead.

    Im thinking that there is some kind of algorithm they use to determine shipping rates. Based upon value of the item, plus size, plus weight, plus shape, and distance. I think Schiit might also be adding a minimal processing and handling charge as well.

    I play around with adding items to my cart from time to time, and I'm often confused by the pricing. Seems like shipping rates for single items has increased a bit, but grouped items hasn't increased by the same amount.

    USPS seems to be much pricier then it used be.

    Its cheaper shipping wise to ship me Vidar saga+, loki, modi 3, and some tubes, then it is to ship an Aegir and Bifrost 2, by almost 20 bucks.

    It's almost 5 dollars more expensive to ship a Bifrost 2 then a Bifrost 4490.

    2 dollars more expensive to ship Aegir over Vidar.

    Probably insurance costs.

    Flat rate shipping would be nice, but that would probably cause wholesale price increases.

    Tradeoffs eh?

    Moral of the story, buy as much Schiit in the same order as you can.
