You just wrote my watch bio....except I acquired my Casablanca and my wife's Cintree Curvex, the same way. My AD apparently had an argument with Franck Muller himself and sold all remaining stock at 40% off. So I bought two. Although more than 15 years ago, before TWAT II, I was a naive collector, but had no aspirations of trading the watches in for something else, so I never tested the secondary market.
Although I agree with financing being extremely cheap, the argument of any bank interest offsetting interest cost has long since sailed, unless you are holding some other investment that generates a return. In shopping for a new A6, they offered 1/2% interest on the lease, why not take the "free" funds.
Like the new Michigan/Jumpman tie up. Nice update from the old school Champion t's, and a bit unique with the Jordan brand.
Thanks. I am deciding now if I want new or used, knowing I will sacrifice the Pepsi, since I am not buying the wg new. Kicking tires at a local AD, where I have purchased all my watches from, but they do not have pre-owned.
Looking for a Pepsi, anyone have experience with SwissWatchExpo? What would be a reasonable price to pay for one? I know that is a tough question, but it seems they trade in the $6K range. I am new to the secondary market as I have purchased my Panerai and Franck Muller new from an AD.
Well, kinda. I leased a Jeep and yes people do, along with my Q7, since I don't enjoy car ownership anymore. I would rather give them back in 2-3 years and get another, with no headaches. I leased the Jeep that was recalled over the faulty shifter, and it does truly suck. It is hard to tell when the car is in neutral, reverse or park based on prior experiences driving a car. The recall didn't fix the problem entirely and I will likely come away unscathed in the finance...
Car mistakes are no fun, especially when leasing. I am working on getting rid of my 6 month old Jeep Grand Cherokee. Going to test drive the Audi A6, great deals right now on the 2016's. Have to decide between the 2.0 and 3.0. The 3.0 seems pretty mean.
I believe the locations were Minneapolis, Long Island, Tampa, somewhere in Texas and one other, LA maybe. You also get a discount code for use at the driving school in Birmingham, Atlanta and soon to be LA. It really was a good opportunity to drive a car that I would consider buying, although the one I have put serious consideration into, was one I did not get to drive and that was the Panamera. Will likely schedule a test drive soon.
No idea. My corporate team put this together. They are in the same spot for 3 days and hold two events a day.
Yesterday was great. It is now called the Porsche Destination Drive, across five locations in the US. It was me and two clients. We drove a Cayenne E-Hybrid about 30 minutes to the Autocross track, mostly highway driving in caravan following the Panamera gts driven by an instructor. Thought the hybrid feature was strange and really couldn't get a feel for the car and how it cruises. Didn't seem to have the torque one would think with a hybrid at the low end. After we got...
