Thats the point, when sitting in an Audi Q7 doesnt give you the 'i'm the chosen one" feeling anymore, then comes Burj Dubai!

It must be a new show though. They went up to the top(level 136 when it was taped) and the view was spectacular.
What stood out to me was they mentioned I believe twice if not three times the Burj Dubai would have 160 floors... from all the diagrams Ive seen the building has 155 inhabitable floors.... So I'm wondering if they have revised the floor plan once again to add 5 more floors. ??

cheers,

Sure, but not to be the hottesst day of the year so far exactly when I have to do things around the city and get stuck in traffic.

The number 48.5 is NOT photoshopped, is just the reflection of the flash.
