If it was an XC40, okay, it kind of makes sense, but not for a regular V60.

Ah Buffalo - why the hell anyone would live there is beyond me. I'm sure the people are wonderful but I don't think I want to live on the wrong side of any lake when it comes to snow.

I almost took a job there last week too :lol:

The weather there is wild. My Nana, cousin, and uncle are all in Buffalo. My uncle lives in Cheektowaga and has 65in, cousin at UB has a foot or so, and my Nana in Clarence can see her grass still haha.

I've seen similar in Utah. The difference is those are mountains where you can ski. Buffalo is flat.

I don't understand legal speak. I just calibrate and test.

I'd be suprised to learn the manufactures were actually able to price fix. Usually everyone is under cutting each other to get the lowest price. I could see replacement parts being fixed though. We all know every auto-maker's replacement parts are more expensive than they should be.

I wonder if this is one of those times where the manufactures find a loop-hole in the regulation and take advantage of it. Same thing happened in 1999 when every HD manufacture was sued by the EPA for "Emissions Defeat Devices". In reality the device was just mode switching between two engine modes that emitted different emissions levels. The EPA had two test cycles, one transient and one steady state with different emissions limits. The manufactures decided to trigger mode switching by transient operation to maximize efficiency in both tests. Each and every one was sued by the EPA and fined for following the law but not meeting the "aim" of the EPA. :wacko:

Don't know why, but I was fascinated by this. I'm guessing it was made in London's late 30s.

EDIT: Found a better video that confirmed 1938. Yisssss.
