    Lease one, and write it off. Best option, then if you still like it at end of term and it's been a good vehicle, you can buy it at a great price.

    pretty much, but lease for Justin and his business would be the way to go I believe. Let the dealer deal with the headaches. I mean, they are awesome looking vehicles, sittin' on black 22's 24's, omg

    Most people that live in areas like yours with large stretches of road won't lease due to the tight mileage you are put on. It's expensive to go over and if you get too high in miles you have to park the damn car! You are paying about the same payments, but have no freedom. It's just a way to pay the depreciation, have less freedom, and lose it all when the lease it up.

    Much cheaper monthly nut too, leasing is a win win for me. I lease my Caddy, do a 2 year lease, turn it in and get another.
    Being a buss. owner I reap the tax benefits also.

    You have to be in a correct enough tax bracket to truly reap the rewards of writing off damn near everything involving the vehicle to really have it good. If so, leasing is the way to do it.

    The tax break for leasing is not as good as it was 5 years ago when they changed it, but anything I can get back, I am all for it.

    Sounds like a pretty good deal when you think about how expensive they are.

    SO this update has taken away all the personality of the forum. Everything is black and white. "Catchy titles" don't even stand out since they are colorless, With the stats hidden by default I have to click them every time to know if the advice I am giving is good for the US, or Canada, or HONG KONG.

    I am reserving my thoughts for the final tweaked product. Most of the things I'd have to say are surely being worked on and talked about behind the scenes. I understand a clean look, but too much cleansing is bad because MMI's personality was what set it apart from the OTHER cleansed forums.

    Change is always hard for some, and even for me, it's just weird now as I have been staring at these pages and posts for quite a while as you all have too.
    I have high hopes that the end result will be awesome, right now it's like being a n00b, struggling to find my way around. And the having to post wearing sunglasses is not easy. lolz
