Maybe it is the mic? I do have to shout at the damn thing like I'm barking out orders to my kid from across the street.

My wife and I definitely fall into this category. We bought our house because it had a 2 car garage (rare for Charleston).

Glad to see someone that recognizes the importance of saving. My personal opinion is that you don't want your car payment to exceed 15% of your take home pay. Others will say 20%, but most don't...

I'm not sure why that matters. The assumptor will still get the MSD back at the end of the lease.

Pretty good deal. My payments almost $100/mo more for virtually the same car. What's the residual on the car? How much was the net capitalization cost?

In terms of using them as a headlight, I believe the 2010 R8 had them first, then the 2011 A8, then the 2012 A7/A6.

Correct. I almost walked from a deal just last week trying to get the mythical .00125. I doubt my dealer was willing to lose a sale over $7 a month.

It's .00135 currently.
