Default Saab reveals the Funk-Is




Quote:
A unique, ground-breaking ice scraper called Funk-is is made of frosted plexiglass developed and produced in Sweden by the well-known manufacturer Saab. The irregular shape allows easy access of tight places and the rounded corners guard the window rubber seals. Diamond ground makes up the edges of the ice scraper, making it effortless to remove ice and snow. It has an integrated wiper blade cleaner and comes with a uniquely developed handle made of sheepskin for handling comfort and utilization. Price: $600 or 476.

I think we've stumbled on GM's bankruptcy alternative.

Looks like half of a razor blade. This must be the new must have emo scraper.

I think they meant the edge is diamond ground.

^^ I think you're right. If the edge was ground diamond, that might justify the price, but it would also scrape up your glass really easily.

I certainly don't dislike it, but I can think of many better things to do with $590 (the other $10 was from buying a normal ice scraper)

Interesting... I was wondering where the R&D money was going... if you can't build good cars, expand to other things with less competition... like ice scrapers...

except that watch is an extreme limited production and will be worth as much if not more than you paid for it in 10/20 years whereas that ice scraper will be lost or worthless

For $56 bucks it really isn't that bad for someone who has everything and doesn't want to scratch the hell out of their nice car's windshield. I hate being American though and thinking $56 for that isn't thaaat bad!
