    Reading this pisses me off. First off the damn things run $50,000 to begin with. So the damn training and $500 should come with it regardless. And if they really appreciated us they would offer something better, like 0% interest, or something like no payments for 1 year. And to be honest the damn thing has a horrible paint job. The boys at Saleen could come up with something better.
