    All of the above. But props to the Beebs for spending his loot on some cool cars. He can drive a mirrored finish Fisker and chicks still wanna sit on his face. I don't really expect him to drive an Obsidian Lexus ES300 like an old guy who golfs a lot. I am glad he drives absurd cars. That's the upside of being an 18 year old with a hundred million bucks.

    ha, i dont like him but you cant blame him for being a kid. kind of hated but kind of loved his blacked out CTS-V with the batman logo. Its like he went and spent $80k (or whatever they cost) to put into the car like a normal kid would go get a comic book.

    i considered leasing, but for some reason im a little gunshy. So i bought used...my car had depreciated enough to make it worthwhile. Im a cheap bastard, i doubt id ever buy brand new. :embar:

    Would never buy new either, unless I like the burn of pissing away decent cash, The last few cars I've owned were relatively high risk cars that never really ended up costing me much in repairs, no more than a Japanese car, so I don't really buy into the hype. That is unless I buy some abused off-lease car.

    Btw, a little something for you depreciation folks to think about:

    When you lease, the residual value is based of the MSRP. However, the amount to be depreciated is the difference between the residual value and the cap cost. So let's take the Benz I picked up yesterday. Due to MB's current blow out program my cap cost was about 14k under MSRP. See what I'm getting at?

    I suggest you are. Leasing cost over 3 years was 26k. Depreciation over first three years was 7-12 k. Much better deal to buy and sell, and only lose the depreciation.

    That's a pretty racist thing to say.

    Never realized how much these look almost exactly like a 2 door altima. Probably the same platform i guess.

    totally different platforms. the altima is a FWD and the G is based on a RWD platform.
