I park really far away so that I can take the looks in on the long walk to the back of the parkinglot.

It must look good if it has me coming back for more after 3 years

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

I have the same problems. Something about the unusual lines of the One really makes you want to analyze it's looks. Where it really gets bad is when you start making mods. Some of you newer owners are really in for a fun but expensive modfest.

...you have a GoPro cam stuck somewhere on the car to record and re-live the drive ALL THE TIME and have blown 2GB of hard-drive space with random 1er footage in the 2.5 months of owning the camera!
