    ..darth,pahntom,baaba,herbs might definetly want a gift like this and
    on top of that get the import duty aslo waived off

    http://uk.sports.yahoo.com/030815/323/e68cy.html

    [Italian automaker Fiat's Indian arm has rescued cricket superstar Sachin Tendulkar by paying a whopping import duty on the luxury Ferrari car gifted to him by the company.

    The car, presented to Tendulkar by racing king Michael Schumacher in England a year back, arrived in Bombay last Friday after the federal government waived the import duty worth 245,000 dollars on a request from the millionaire cricketer.

    what say phantom,

    and ferarri haters.(praetor )....blah..

    yeah thats pretty cool. i think he should have paid the tax though, if he's a millionare and all, wouldn't that money benefit his country? maybe they need some new roads in India, who knows.

    Feck them - thats what i wouldve have said. I wouldve said, well i wont play for your cricket team if you get on like that.

    Remember when Microsoft was forced with a possibility of a break-up. If i was microsoft i wouldve said, well u can fusk ur break up, im shipping my company off to another country and you can be faced with a massive (millions) of people outta jobs!

    But hey, im mean :)

    evrybody felt so,that he should pay the tax..pertcilarly when such exemptions had been abolished..but i guess people find loopholes.

    only 5 star hotels are getting that 100%exmption.getting imports o f cars..for driving their guests..and as soon as it lands..it is sold off..and the market difference pocketed lol

    Ah.Oriphus.. if only u were in place of billy-microsoft would be like Virgin today..

    Thats a cracking idea. Only problem is i dont have a photograph of him. :-( I have a plan

    *thinks to himself*

    Mr praetor, im from the tax office, and i believe we have misplaced your tax return card. Could you please send us out another photograph to place on your card, so that we can provess your tax?

    *That might work*

    One step ahead of you... currently working on finding a decent pic of a Ferrari and some paintball special effects. ;-P

    You should (or shouldnt hehe) see what I do to Porche pictures... god I'm evil. It's just the F40/F50, with the back gate/door/engine cover thing up is just so damn pretty when you start messing with it in photoshop :p I found me an article about an old program that allows you to do deformities and stuff - absolutely amazing. Take a model of a perfectly fine F40/F50 for instance, pass it through the program and out pops a crumpled up version of the car! hehe

    Seriously though, my comments regarding the F40/50 apply only to NFSHP2 - F50 is IMHO the best car in NFSHP2 (and the F40 seems to look damn near like a clone of the F50 so i will extend my respect to that too) :)
