    The Z06/Z07 are going to be astounding cars. For me, the most remarkable spec is GM's 5 year/100K powertrain warranty on a drivetrain with “at least” 625 HP and 635 ft-lbs of torque. M5s ate clutches for lunch with 40 percent less horsepower and torque.

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but I could be happy with an all-GM (all-Chevy!) 2-car garage: Chevy Volt for day-to-day use, and a Corvette Z06 for the fun car.

    6-speed AMG with a custom built 7.2L engine. I am so intrigued by all the other 1-offs which are out there.

    Just got an email from MB that they'll let me out of my lease four payments early. Looks like I'll be considering the new, updated GL in April.

    I did this last time around, and it's a painless way to negotiate a really good deal. They desperately want to keep you in a MB. Just make sure you time it correctly so that you get full use of your most recent lease payment.

    Always. :)

    I like to make the change the Saturday before the next payment is due.

    Do "oil money" middle easterners actually have jobs?

    Yes, of course YOU would be on top of that. I blew it last time and wanderd in there like the day after the auto-draft, didn't even think about it. I thought maybe at least they'd pro-rate. :)

    Their main job is to persuade the general public not to storm the palace and cut their effing heads off, while simultaneously flaunting an epic conspicuous consumption lifestyle using the nation's money to do it. That takes talent, dedication...and huge balls. Apparently "taste" is not a real factor here.

    Given only those two options I'd pick GLK just because I'd not want to be associated with BMW drivers (5).
