    there not that cheap when u think about it.. u have to past customs and what not..
    its only really worth it when u import a rare car, or something north america doesnt have. and besides rhd would be kinda annoying to drive here in canada

    yes, i do meant the selling price was relatively cheap, especially the really special models. Of course custom and shipping charges are killers.

    what is a mondeo estate, a suv, station wagon, truck? The torque vs hp profile resemble a tractor

    it is here in the U.K we are getting say a 2.0L Petrol with 140 BHP and 2.0L Diesel with 140 BHP the Diesel is quicker to 62 MPH. we are getting Diesels put in cars which are over 250 BHP+ a V10 Diesel has been made from Volkswagen. The mondeo can do around 130 Mph top speed and has a 6 speed gearbox . Look forward to getting it replacing the slug of a Peugeot.

    Ha . . . just laugh it off. The couple doesn't know the meaning of environmental friendliness.

    My goodness, common-rail diesel is becoming very popular in Europe. I wonder if Hong Kong has this type of modern diesel engines available in sedans & SUV?

    a bike or a pair of in-line skates... zero emissions other than that required for the manufacturing process, and for the rider exhaust (you know what I mean).

    The funny thing is, the 3.8L V6 mustang from the mid 90s can't even outperform a honda civic si

    basically, all mustang after muscle car era to mid 1990's are craps. The one with a 5 L engine is better because 5L engine hasnt change for decades because after 10+ years, most bugs in the 5L engines have been corrected. I remember one guy showing me his turbocharged mustang in the mid to late eighty. He tells me all these problems and setback he has but he still brag about it because it's a turbo.
