I think you both are in agreement. He was being sarcastic. C'mon (LOL) can't we get along.

Withthe right set-up, the TC3 should be competitive even at the highest levels. I hope to drive one at some of the bigger races this year

It's a nice looking car. The visual design is pretty vanilla by today's standards, but there's no doubt it's going to perform. That's probably okay for a company like Associated, they're going to sell a grillion of them in the US, and parts are going to be easy to find, and it's probably going to be wildly popular, especially since consumer apathy toward "luxury" kits from exotic places with hard-to-find parts and high prices is getting worse . This looks like a nice, safe, extremely capable sedan, much like its siblings, and there's definitely a place for that.

My prediction is that people who want a fancy looking car with radical styling will look elsewhere. People that want a blue collar car that just works will look toward Associated. And that's fine, there's room for both. So when the flood of XRay, Corally and Schumacher fan boys come in here and tell you they think it looks too plain, just roll your eyes, suggest they have another latte, and remind yourself that winning is done of the track, not the bench.

Way to put those on your own site with advertising rather than linking back to the original source (teamassociated.com). In the real world, it's called blog spam, and it's considered really bad form. I hope you get banned for spamming.
