    If your payment is $141 bi-weekly, it means your monthly payment is ~$306/month. Lots of people get tripped up by this math at dealerships when they sign up for lease/finance.
    Thanks. I am well aware of how it works. First two payments were “free” please continue
    A Ferrari is a high maintenance chick, you spend money regardless of what you do with her. You can baby the C63, or slap on all seasons, and you won't be spending anything but yearly maintenance. Of course that's like dating a stripper and refusing to fuck her, which would make you gay.

    I had a coworker I was close friends with whose entire family was T-boned at highway speed in a newer MB ML550 - everyone got away without major injury. The rescue personnel told him that based on their experience, his family very likely would not have even survived if not for being in such a safe vehicle. I always remember that story.
    MB's safety tech is pretty darn awesome. But I have to wonder if this had more to do with the size of the vehicle than advancements in safety over the last 10 years.

    Either way, good to hear everyone was able to walk away.

    To each their own.

    I am impressed with the new entry level cars tho. Peppy, safety features, cheap tco etc.

    I have enough friends with nice cars that I can live vicariously through them lol

    I'm sure it was a factor - the big MB SUV's are ~5,000lbs and loaded with airbags and other safety tech. I think it would be hard to argue they would have fared the same in a 15-20 yr old SUV without side airbags or anything like that but I totally understand that it's hard to say for sure since we don't have the luxury of seeing how both accidents play out.

    A long time ago I had 3 of my friends get T-boned and pushed into a light pole by an 85yr old woman in an early 2000's Ford Explorer at much lower speed (50-60 km/h), the vehicle was completely unrecognizable afterwards. It just looked like a ball of metal. One friend was injured quite badly but miraculously everyone survived. The engine got pushed straight through the passenger compartment to the back seat and the initial police report said that nobody was wearing their seatbelts because they all ripped off. One of my friends crawled out of the car through a hole in the engine bay, and the first on scene paramedic didn't believe he was a passenger in the vehicle, they thought he was a witness (because they assumed everyone was dead).

    Maybe I am more sensitive to the issue because of the stories like that that have been close to me, but I've always valued vehicle safety features very highly and it would not take much to make all the difference.
