    yup, pretty cool isn't it ?

    ( kind of like a center filter that spins around and around and around and around and ... )

    Can someone please explain why a 3/16" scratch will wipe $150 of value from a Symmar but you'll pay $3600 for something with an entire fan on the front??

    Maybe if the Symmar were manufactured WITH the scratch it wouldn't lose value like that.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    No, no, no. Jim, you just need to start selling your scratched symmars with fans.
