      With a recent promotion and deciding that living my life now rather than constantly focusing on the future, I decided it was time to get a new car.

      Erik just got a 2wd Audi from me so I decided I would follow in his footsteps.... However, I switched the drive wheels.

      Car is at the port in Houston and should be here in the next week to ten days.

      To say I am excited I think would be an understatement. I have always wanted a super car and the time for me to do that now. I obviously wanted to discuss with the better half before I did it, so when I had her all sauced up on her birthday, she gave me the words I never figured to hear "I am 100% behind you getting an R8"

      The lease for two years on this is crazy cheap and with having three other cars to choose from (granted, my father will be taking the A4- sp really only two) I wont need more than 5,000 miles a year. It will probably stay stored in my store during the winter, only to be taken out on those really nice winter days.

      Now I just hope I can sleep before it gets here

      That doesn't look like a TT-RS. Not sure if serious about super car.

      Nice! Just how cheap a lease are we talking here? Never thought about leasing a car like this but seems like a great idea, just had a great quarter, hmmm...

      Dare we ask what "crazy cheap" means for leasing one of these? I think they (and the Huracan) are amazing, nearly the last remaining examples of the NA high rev era in automobiles. Too bad not even the old V8 ones are depreciating rapidly enough to be affordable, but I guess low depreciation means low-ish lease rates?

      Think totally loaded Ford F250 Diesel King Ranch on a 4 year note, and then it's probably cheaper than that.

      But I could be wrong. I know it would take $1,650 to pay off a $78,000 truck in 48 months, without interest.

      In retrospect, what you'd pay to lease an RS3 is only about $200 less per month.

      To put things into perspective, there's really no decision to be made.

      "Crazy cheap" on a super car means less than his mortgage payment.

      No point of a GG tax when the tax on the *gas* used is sufficient.

      We better see some videos of you autocrossing the **** outta that thing.


      Congrats on it, Smooremin! I have thought about looking for a first gen for my wife to drive to work, but I don't think that the other teachers would take too kindly to that.
