    You can remove the Maybe.

    I can't speak for Mr McWilliams (although we have never been seen in the same place at the same time and we both have a thing for wagons, so we may be the same person...although I would have to grow at least 5 inches taller if I was to pull it off) but I would be happy to place money on the fact that he is aware of the presence of the K900 in other markets, but was specifically referring to its absence in the Australian market.

    The wheels look dirty on the Malibu

    I'd be forever trying to clean them


    Impala looks much better than Malibu , the later looks like it's been designed by 3 different teams


    Not attractive at all

    Re: GMI Drives: 2016 Kia Optima GT Turbo

    The Optima GT is one of my fav cars I've reviewed for my blog this year, very well equiped, plenty of room inside, rode pretty damn good and was actually fun to drive only limited by the FWD dynamics. I do like the look of it a lot Saw a black one with black rims on it the other day and it looked damn good indeed specially with the tinted windows.
    The big plus was the family really loved it as well only thing that I don't find attractive about it is the price.
    I'm looking forward to the RWD GT sedan that is supposedly coming.

    That was a good guess.
