So Tim has sold the 300SE? I've seen SOME evidence to support that theory...
Has he bought a 560? or a Veyron?

Check out the front page.
Note I was talking about power on the front page, with a 300hp 560 now being the power leader.

It's up to Tim if he wants to reveal the car he plans to purchase. He can create a new thread if he is so inclined.

The individual reclining rear seats is a nice option, as is manual climate control.
