I see. You were using the term "cheap Chinese" as a pejorative, not as a source of origin for the cars. A bit ironic since the Chinese nouveau riche are the biggest buyers of exotic million-dollar...

Nice. Featuring exotics like in the video game but what are cheap Chinese type cars? I didn't even realize Chinese made cars other than crappy ones for their domestic consumption. :confused:

I beg to differ. The best generally accepted reason for the lack of 3D success in home market has been the glasses. One still has to wear glasses for 4K 3D. The picture may be prettier but it's still...
