This is interesting. The A/C has always been a little inconsistent in the summer in my car, working a lot worse than my 2011 worked. Hopefully I'll get a notice soon.

Having seen the new 7 up close and personal, I will say it looked a lot better in person than in the pictures I have seen. I'm also of the belief that the new 5 will also share that phenomenon. For...

I stand corrected. I last leased an MB in 2006, so the program has changed.

Well the Audi ED discount is 5%, and you can't combine the 6% Audi CCA discount. With the way that Audi usually leases, I'd be surprised you'll be able to get an S7 (the equivalent of your 550) at...

You could pay extra to park on blacktop? Did not know that. Would be even better if there was a VIP entrance for extra cost. Given how many cars attended, the line did move pretty well, but it was...

It's certainly a bummer to hear this news. This would result in about a $50/month increase in my lease price, so a $1,750 difference. If they sweeten the deal with a free flight (Volvo does this),...
