Not exactly the same as a lease payment, but close enough, so OK to use a lease calculator if that's all you have handy. The OC should be just slightly higher as payments are made at the end of each...

There shouldn't be a disposition fee if you're paying it off early (or trading it in, which requires a pay off).

I wish I'd hung on to my AAPL shares....got out just before the split.

BTW, I think that's $167 Billion in cash. There are about 6 billion shares outstanding, so about $25 per share is your cash....

I need to be able to take extended road trips. Otherwise, I'd try a Tesla.

Yes, same experience here. The 20" wheels with runflats was almost unbearable. I lived with it for a year, then switched to non RF tires.

I went with a higher profile tire to get more sidewall: ...

If all the issues with your 550 relate to the N63 engine, then that shouldn't translate to the 6-series Gran Coupe. You get either the reliable 6 cylinder engine (640i) or the updated N63tu engine...

I just saw a lease ad for a Honda Accord. MSRP of $24K, and a $595 acq. fee. In relative terms, the BMW fee is still low.

Agree, the way the refs handled it was weird...maybe unprecedented.

And agree, the Bryant 'catch' vs. GB in no way meant a win for Dallas. The way Rodgers was moving the ball, I'd say the odds...

Yeah it seems the Conti DWs are not in supply now. I went with Bridgestone S04 Pole Positions - similar high reviews/ratings on TireRack and about the same price.

Maybe I missed something 'cause it's never come into play for me personally, but I'm unaware of any lease requirement to have out-of-warranty service done by a dealer vs. indy shop.

You must not watch a lot of football. Flag pick-ups are not that uncommon. I'd bet there's one every week in an NFL season but I don't think stats like that are kept.

Hate to say it, but he probably should've done that about three weeks ago. But that's water under the bridge now and Greg is likely still the best option today.

The $4,875 is exactly 65% of $7,500, which would appear to reflect the balance of the credit after the 35% U.S. corporate tax rate. Maybe coincidence. And if it's passed through 100% to the...
