Definitely in USD. Cars are expensive there (try $60k-plus for a new 4Runner) and there’s a huge duty on anything you import.

It’s a thing in nice apartment buildings in Japan. I stayed with a friend there and needed a whole tutorial on how to work the shower control pad.

Get 7 days and don’t activate it until a few days into the trip—i.e. assuming you’re flying to Narita pay cash for the Narita express to Tokyo when you get there, and then go activate the pass a few days in, before you take the shinkansen to Kyoto. The main thing is to make sure it’s active the last day when you will Read more

Get a JR pass. Bullet train to and from Kyoto plus a day trip to Nara to see some temples and tame deer or to Osaka to go out drinking and eating ought to pay for it, and if/when you use the Narita Express to and from the airport or the green line to get around Tokyo it’ll just be icing on the cake. Even if it doesn’t Read more

I love Tokyo and Kyoto and have been to both a few times but have never managed to do much car-related there other than -spotting and riding around Kyoto in doily-filled Toyota Crown and Nissan Cedric or President taxis and shopping for die-cast models of JDM cars in Akihabara.

I play on PC occasionally and would join a group if there is one.

I thought REMOVING the name plate was the option you had to pay for...Porsche usually charges extra for more lightness.

They’re pretty shy. I’ve never personally seen one in Washington although I know they live here.

They would get them coming and going with both the listing fee and the buyer’s premium (authorized on your credit card when you bid), but on a high-dollar collectible it might be worth it to somebody to eat those fees to save a sale at a low price.

I completely disagree and think that fake “French provincial” in suburban Florida is much uglier and more offensive than authentic modern in southern California, but where we can probably both agree is that these are both monstrosities that should not exist.

Good explanation. If I could add up all the hours I’ve spent comment-section lawyering for CLE credit, I’d never have to actually attend one again.

Does “could seek” mean the same thing as “are definitely entitled to” in Sicilian dialect, Vizzini? The California CLRA provides for attorneys’ fees and costs to a prevailing plaintiff, and a UCL claim can support such an award. That might be a good place to start.

The attorneys could seek their fees on top of the award (rather than taking them out of it) since Tesla’s wrongful behavior forced the plaintiff to bring the lawsuit to vindicate their rights in the first place.

Thanks! Me too. I’ll be alright either way, just could never get the hang of Februarys.
