Interestingly, the only two of those cities I would want to live in are Stockholm and Vienna. There isn't a city in China you could pay me to live in - issues like non-breathable air (!), non-potable water (!), and rampant, systemic corruption are problems for me.

So, you bought a twenty-year-old car, that probably wasn't maintained as it should have been (very, very few cars are, no matter what the seller/inspector says), and happens to be one of the early models of the generation, and you're surprised and annoyed that you have to replace basic parts like the alternator and… » 8/01/14 12:35pm 8/01/14 12:35pm
