yup, right on with the color, and no not a turbo. I would like to get a turbo eventually, but I mainly wanted a 944 for the handling, I'm really not that concerned with going fast. With the 5speed, it's still a blast to drive

Nice! Square dash or oval? I had an '83 944 a while back and it was my favorite Porsche.

Yeah. Screw the phone dials. My pops had an 84.

We wrote a deal today. Mrs. Piob picks up her second ML on Friday. MB just makes it so attractive to be a repeat lease customer.

Those are really nice. I also like the color. I hope to post my pictures of an 87 vanden plas in the same color in the next few weeks.

Gold must have been an 80s color.

Looking forward to the pics and review. A side-by-side shot of the ML and GL would be nice, too.

I did. Crappy residuals led to a $350 or so difference in the lease payments. Also, as a returning MB customer, waive the $600 lease return fee, credit towards any excess wear and tear, and dealer dollars.

This is going to be her second ML. Only difference is it got the same update the GL did, in terms of a few appearance things and better electronics. Sadly, her ML will be the same colour as my GL. She likes the colour, /shrug.

In 2012 there will be a new model ML so we plan to use the early trade in offer MB gives to returning customers. She'll get out at 30 months and pick up the new model.
