Given the recession and all its only proper to cut back on certain extravagances. I prefer to light mine with US Treasury Bills, its not like they're worth anything anyway.

The Citroen C6 would be my choice for a luxury car . It's unsurpassed suspension system is best equipped to handle the 'Burgh's terrain. In fact, Citroen invented the hydroactive suspension and in a quality test blew the BMW away. So refreshing to see such refined elegance while being high tech and outside of the boring and conformist Audi/Beemer/Merc mundane. The only problem is you can't buy them in N. America ( which makes them even more exotic!) But may be coming back to Canada soon. My uncle, who used to race professionally in Europe, no longer races cars but sells these. He would give me a real good deal on one but I still would have the problem of having it shipped it to the U.S.

I would not mind seeing Citroen (or its parent company Peugeot) in the states. However, fixing them would be quite the task. Even with Saab (which has been in the US for decades) mechanics are baffled as to how to fix them.

I could make a long list of European cars I wish were available in the U.S. (the ones that particularly irk me are the ones by U.S. companies).

I would love to get in on the ground floor of a dealership in Canada. My Uncle said sales have slowed in Europe but have risen everywhere else outside of Europe, so it makes sense that they probably are intent on coming to Canada.

Both my cousins are mechanics that work on Citroens every day( at my Uncle's dealership)They are a very progressive,high tech car company and have been for years .Like I said about the suspensions, they are perfect for driving around here.But just like everything else there is only so much market for auto imports and big companies like BMW with their clout( and I'm sure politics play a role as well)crowd out smaller companies from even being able to import here.
