veronica mars season 2 finale

pretty cool, watched it this week. some interesting suprises, but we all knew that woody was bad. this finale wraps up most of the intrigue of the last 2 seasons. i find veronicas sardonic and sarcastic humour quite entertaining.

lamborghini murcielago lp640




its being called the enzo killer, lamborghini unveils the lp640 version of the murcielago supercar. its design has barely aged since its september 2001 launch. 640 bhp with a 6.5l v12 engine. i think it looks smashing and cant wait jeremy clarkson to review it on top gear. the no nonsense interior carbon fiber, vaguely reminding of the bmw m3 csl, the beautiful lines and the spectacular exhaust make this an exquisite supercar. i especially like the dark gray body on black wheels. its going to be offered at 15-20K$ above the price of the "normal" murcielago. audi has been making good work with lambo. im impressed with audi / vw group. from bentleys to the bugatti veyron, they are really pushing it.

2006 BMW M5 E60


im going mad for this sedan. msrp in canada is about 120000 CAD. its about 90000 CAD in the US, since the canadian dollar is so high. right now i drive a 2004 subaru wrx sti. the m5 is unique in its slot for the moment. audi 2006 rs4 with 420 hp is a smaller sedan, the size of the bmw 3 series. the new 2007 audi s6 is coming out with a 5.2l fsi v10 from the lamborghini gallardo, since audi / vw owns lambo. the rumors are that a twin turbo rs6 is due out next year. the 2007 s8 also has a similar engine with 450 hp i think. the s6 is already in direct competition with the m5, how will the rs6 stand up? maybe with a dsg gearbox and close to 600 hp would be my guess. price is probably going to be an issue. the 2003 rs6 was already at 100000 CAD. now the rs4 is at 100000 CAD. i imagine the rs6 will be close to 120000 CAD. thats a lot of money. one third of my condo.

until the s6 comes out in north america, the cls 55 amg is pretty much the only competitor in this segment. but i guess, then its again all about the bimmer vs merk debate. even if jeremy clarkson found the idrive and the sat nav woman super anoying as well as the multitude of settings, i believe most m5 owners enjoy fiddling with that sort of thing. i know i would.

huff & british tv

im catching up on huff on showtime. im liking it a lot. i have to say that there is some good british tv out there, not that huff is british in any way, but top gear, vital signs, the street, new street law, frost, doctor who, the apprentice uk, it all has a distincitve flavour. just thinking out loud here, but i havent watched any dramas from france since ive lived there. i wonder how their dramas are today. its weird, but since i live in qc, i would have assumed that there would be some dramas from france on the quebec tv channels.
