Awlrightly, here's thread to get you SUV haters blood boiling (not to mention Bush bashers). Next week, I'm gonna buy a new company car that qualifies for the $100,000 write off, which means that it has to be over 6,000 pounds GVWR. (Oh man, I can just see the Dean type Greenies starting to foam at the mouth. Ah, nuthin is finer than getting the goat of liver lipped winnies first thing in the morning. Life is good.) But which gas guzzling, Mother Earth hating, bloatmobile should I buy? Mercedes is dumping M-500s because they have a new model coming out next year. Plus, they need the money. But after taking such a huge depreciation hit on a 2001 E55, I'm not feeling too good about Mercedes right now. The regular Pepper truck will work. (I'l love to get a turbo, but $90K is a bit rich for my blood. I need to save the money for timing belt changes,ha!) The BMW X-5 is about $10k cheaper and BMW just redid this truck with better traction control. The VW Egg truck looks interesting, but I can't get the salesman to call me back. I hate begging people to take my money. Lexus makes big SUV, but they are getting just a little too blingy for me. So what do you think? Signed, Confused in Tejas!
