Is this tile ever good, barring the need to break a tie for the most blue tiles goal? I don't think my wife or I have ever built it in our 50+ games. We have slowly discovered uses for tiles that didn't seem very good at first glance, but I just can't see a situation (aside from the one previously listed) where one would want to buy this. Even if there is a nice slot for it that would give +7 or +8 revenue, it will be touch and go for the tile to even pay for itself depending on where the final round tile is in the C stack. Has anyone had a game that was decided, or even substantially impacted, by the play of this tile (again, barring the very specific instance of needing it only for the +1 blue tile aspect)?

It seems substantially a tile that will help you towards certain goals (most income is the other main one after most blues). Hopefully a future expansion makes use of it's "car" symbol. I agree there are usually better tiles to purchase when in comes up in the C stack.

Yeah, maybe once or twice I would have brought this tile if Most income is one of the public/private goal and I don't want to buy other tiles either because of my own strategy or because of the goal like least of yellow and such.

We played a four player game last night that almost marked the first time I ever saw the car dealership built. Most blue tiles goal was in play, and I planned to buy the dealership for the simple fact of it being the cheapest blue tile available. However, the person in front of me trashed it after building a heavy factory so the streak continued. I think this will be an easy choice for first tile to be replaced by a Suburbia, Inc tile.

If you get a PR firm online and you're at 15 rep but cash becomes short it might be useful. But typically you can just lake then or get greens or something else.
The times you need it are very rare.
