Characteristics of a Snob

While playing NFS Shift, I noticed that the Honda Civic Si and Infiniti G35 made similar engine sound, a pathetic whining noise. I knew a couple of chaps that own both cars. They started off with the civic and then saved enough money to get the Infiniti G35. In actual reality they went from a VTEC 4 cylinder to a V6 piece of crap.

The reason why they bought the G35 was because it was the cheapest V6 sport coupe. You pay in what you get for was certainly the case in this situation. In otherwords, you are what you drive. All the people I know who are Infiniti owners worked at snobbish consulting firms. Don't believe me, check out the parking garage at the consulting firms.

The Nissan 370Z is a fine sport automobile. Its engine is more powerful, by driving it on a stretch of the Nurburgring and I achieved a slightly higher top speed than the G35. I like the body style better b/c it sort of remind me of the Bugatti Veyron. I wonder who came up with the design first?

More snobbish nonsense:

VW owners believed that their cars are more superior than Hyundai. Guess what? They are not because Hyundai utilize the same cheap parts as them. Let's look at 2 popular VW models:
2008 Scirocco and 2006 Golf GTI

Scirocco sound a lit bit winey than the Golf but it has faster acceleration. The Golf GTI seems to have higher gear ratio for top speed. Both cockpit interior are boring like GM cars.
My recommendation is go for the Hyundai line of vehicles, they are more refined products. Koreans know how to build a car.
