    Friend of mine just bought (bought...fool!) a new S. For a car I like it.

    Piob, I don't understand why you don't just get an S class as well.

    Because I like SUVs. I drove pick ups my entire life and still often think of going back.

    No, but I'm always thinking about what I want next.

    Piob, interested to hear why you are so anti-owning. I get leasing something like an S class that depreciates like a rock, but can't say I'd consider leasing a more "normal" car.

    Seriously? Pio has posted well over a thousand words espousing leases including (IIRC) his mathematical ammunition when dealing with lease agreements.

    Didn't know that--must have missed it. Will dig around.

    Swapping my GL for a 2014 E. OVer miles and they were willing to eat 5 months of lease. Keeping an ML as an SUV. Anyone in the NYC area going to the Americana Concurs?

    LOL this. Nothing seems to get Piob more riled up than a discussion on the merits of leasing vs. buying.
    Yeahh.... I'd let a mightily attractive, classy broad give me head in that backseat (sans dignity, of course).

    given the surroundings, dignity could be left intact.

    my uncle leases an S, the dealership treats him like royalty, I can see why Piob would be convinced of the merits especially being that he abhors waiting in the service area with plebes.

    Center console is road head's worst enemy. That's probably the only negative I see in that interior
