And let me restate that ... It is only in ONE CITY (aside from their experiments on a couple college campuses).
So, please, tell me who is the "EVERYONE is getting it" thing.
And regardless of what you just said, it still doesn't invalidate what I said before ... what people WANT, and what people are willing to reasonably PAY are two different things.
I'm sure if you ask everyone on OCN, people will WANT a [Insert the name of a $250,000 car here] and only have to pay $17,000 for it.
You say you want it and so does everyone else in your area ... are you willing to pay 50 TIMES the price you pay now for it?
