    saw this on a car forum....

    makes me sick to think he's that stupid and still has that much money to waste.

    Excuse me while I go line his pockets at Chevron.

    Although I don't agree with what he did, but he's not doing anything extra to destroy the environment by sending his car in that plane (besides maybe burning little extra fuel for the added weight). Unless I read incorrectly,which is possible, the car was put on a scheduled flight....which means the plane was gonna fly regardless if the car was on it or not. If he chartered the flight to fly his car to get the oil change...then yes..that is bad.

    I like how the baggage handler blasted the cars environmental damage but goes on to say it would be more efficient to fly mechanics out. Either way, a plane is going to fly so theres not too much of a difference there.

    I think most people get angery due to jealousy because there are people out there that throw money around like it's nothing, but there's people that work hard just to make it month by month.

    We all add unessesary pollution in this world rich or poor. This world is a gonner...

    The greenpeace twats in Britain are even worse than they are out here. I love this "carbon footprint" judging that's going on at a personal level now, it's so stupid.

    This was clearly another example of simply flaunting wealth by yet another "sheikh" with no taste or modesty. The car even proves it - a black LP640 with gold accents? These guys are the 50 Cents of the Middle East.

    I agree, the color of the car is the real crime here.

    I'd do it too... but it would be flat black with a lift kit and mud terrains. Can I get a Transfer case for it? Does that void the warranty?

    Wouldn't it have been cheaper to just fly in a mechanic?

    When you have that much money to blow, it doesn't matter if there's cheaper options ....
    If you wanna say something, speak into the mic. It's right above my balls.

    bad, m'kay?
    Stop trying to point out that there are cheaper or 'greener' alternatives, and no, he isn't stupid.

    If anything this is a statement that he has everyone bent over an oil barrel paying for his toys.

    Yeah, if he was worried about cheaper and greener alternatives he'd ride a bicycle rather than drive a Lamborghini.
