Could you please provide a comprehensive list of "shit economy tires" for us less informed folks so we could...

I buy Morcilla from Despana in NYC often. It's great sliced and pan fried for a couple of minutes and served drizzled with olive oil and pimenton. I also make a version of Asturian bean stew with it. Despana specializes in Spanish foods but a lot of their sausages are made in Queens, though they are still good to very good and different than stuff you can get elsewhere. Some Polish delicatessens, like Eagle Provisions in Park Slope, also sell a tasty version of...

I'm shopping around for a BMW 328i, and trying to get all my ducks in a row before I go in. Here are the BMW Fiancial Service Lease...

Enjoy your new ride.
I have some from Lustau, which is a big sherry producer. It's pretty decent. I prefer sweet Spanish vinegar made from Pedro Ximenez grapes to the sherry one for most things. I have this one from Despana and it's very good. If Whole Foods does not carry any Spanish vinegars you can mail order from Despana or Latienda.

I guess you have a unique situation. Looks like BMW.ca is charging 2.5 %lease interest on 3-series which is pretty good. Current US lease rates are between 5-6% and there is a $2500 rebate on 335. I don't think the rebate applies in Canada though. ...

Things may be different in Canada, but in US there is usually no financial benefit to put a down payment on a lease unless there a specific manufacturer sponsored promotion that requires one. In some states in US BMW allows you to put down multiple security deposits to lower your lease interest rate (aka "the money factor"). ...
