darn. starting to fall behind. Getting antsy for a punch.
the 3 (4 if you count duplicate RDXs) in 2012 seem like so long ago!

Yeah, I'm aware of those.
However, the 2012 Civic I found even cheaper. One dealer is advertising for $179 with $0 down.

not from me
Oh, I knew that, ya cheap bastad.
My cars normally sell within a matter of days, so I don't think you'll ever get one from me for half.

I take that as a compliment.
and good thing I never got that MR2 from you. Given that an Integra is too low and small for me know, that might not have worked at all!

oh hell no. The integra is a luxoboat in comparison.

Okay, speaking of being a little bored.
So I ran a simple analysis on the Leaf vs. MB over 36 months.
Figure $215/month for the Leaf lease (including taxes), $1,999 out the first month for down, $3,500 in for the MB sale, and $30/month for the electric bill. That has a net present value of $6,327.
Or keep the MB, at $155/month for gas, $500 four times over the period for maintenance (total of $2,000) and $2,000 sale proceeds at the end of the 36 months. Net present value of $5,188.
Kinda makes a reasonable case, no?

I think you went to the Driver school of cost justification.
I think I've graduated with a PhD from that school. I could teach there.

Red flag is "racing suspension".
I think that's an SMG, no?
