    I'm sure he can afford it.

    Also, I was shocked at how aggressive the exhaust note is on the '14 RRS. Absolutely shocked. It's way too loud for the average trophy wife.

    i thought you were joking, but its not that far off.


    then again there's nothing more baller than not caring about gas milage, kind of like some of my rich friends who have more than 4 kids because they can afford it.

    A coworker of mine said she traded it in when I asked her and I said why. She said it was over 90 bucks to fill up and she literally got 10mpg so she got tired of it.

    Personally, I fucking hate going to the gas station and drive so much 10mpg is out of the question unless it's a lambo.

    The pricing on the new GLs is getting to the point where I'm not sure I can mentally justify it. I have mental blocks where I can only justify so much for things. It's like shoes and how I wear AEs because I just cannot justify paying EG or JL...or even most Alden...prices.

    A RR(S) needs to be a diesel, the 299hp 3.0 diesel is the way to go.

    I disagree. It needs to be the supercharged V8.

    Agreed. The RRS is about giving as few fucks as possible.

    Funny enough, the exhaust note is one of the things my wife really liked. After a delivery screw up, our properly equipped truck should get here next week.

    Just came back from a drive, and god, my rear right tire is significantly more bald than the rear left and it's always the first tire to break loose. In fact, I can barely even gain traction on 1st with an aggressive throttle position because of that fucking tire.

    I really want to swap my rears out for some PSSs but the rear left has a lot more tread left.. at least a couple thousand more miles.

    I'm torn.

    Maybe I should take my car to a track day and just fucking let loose and swap both out after. But then.. I feel that would be dangerous to begin with. Don't want to crash my car.

    could be suspension geometry related as well if it's inner/outer wear (also alignment spec perhaps)
