I won't argue whether it's $1,000 or $2,000 per year difference. There are so many variables involved that could take place in the next ten years - that it's better to say that if leasing works for...

Yes, I totally agree with everything you said. However, I don't believe I want to become a landlord at my age - I played that game for many years while I lived overseas.

Yep, you can make your figures say anything you want to. I don't think a $47K car is going to lease for $550 - maybe it does since I never investigated it; however, I can guarantee that if a current...

The answer is no! But just curious if you have driven it? Supposedly it does 0-60 in 7 1/2 seconds - which is not too bad! And it gets 25/33 MPG.

Just looked it up - it has two things going against it: the backseat leg space is actually less than the 328 and the MPG is not good: 20/29. The M model is bigger but it gets worse gas mileage and it...

Yes, you do know the answer! Which is why we were looking for a bigger car. I don't like the 528 - I had been looking at the A6 - may have to go back to square one - which was the A6!

I found it weird - I can't imagine how it would be in stop-and-start traffic. I think it's a feature I would have turned off.

If you were therefore the passenger (sitting behind the driver) - would it be sufficient for a 30 minute drive? Would it be about the same leg space that you get in economy class?
