I just so happened to be passing by a Beats display at the local Target. Their little portable speaker (that would cost $20-$30 if it were any other brand) apparently costs $200...What?

They also had a Beats equipped Chrysler 300 at the Chicago Auto Show. It's the most overrated audio system since the Turtle Beach craze...A set of cheap Kickers sound better...

However, that Abarth exhaust makes me have a crisis in my pants. What a gorgeous little car. If someone made that exhaust for a smart I would pay a pretty penny for it!

Sure, it isn't an integral part of the car, but Beats are the biggest joke in audio and it just makes me wonder about the motives of people who represent themselves with brands like that.
Couldn't agree with you more. Have you seen the outrageous prices FIAT charges for these "upgrades"? Really? I can get an auto trans, or leather seats, or a sunroof option for approximately the same cost. We aren't exactly talking audiophile environments either. Stay with me now. Ordering your Abarth with Beats? When are you going to enjoy either of their sound tracks? Leave the radio off while you drive. Run the Beats audio when parked. C'mon folks. Do you not see the idiocy here.

Regards,

Dan

You see that's what is so great about America! Everybody is entitled to their own option....... even if it is incorrect I love both my smart and Fiat 500c. They are two special cars in a sea of look-a-likes. Let's not put either one down...

I'm not sure about that, I have a new '13 pure and I'm amazed at how crappy the transmission is (length of shift time, etc.) when watching youtube videos of the '08s, '09s, etc. shifting. Shift times are usually .5-1s for me (1s happens in kickdown only, half seconds happen on very gradual accelerations).

It really feels like there is a WORLD of difference between the transmission on my old 08 vs the one on my 2012.
