IS - last chance to get a new NA V8


I just saw the new TLX the other day and damn… I was impressed


IS for its NA V8 and relative bargain vs M3 or C63. Also the IS probably holds its value better than the Acura, which you should care about if you are buying new or leasing.


Look at the resale on the IS-F, I think the 500 will hold its value like that. Also, Acura is kind of dead…


Tlx, but I’m a Honda fanboy.

I’m thinking the Lexus will have better resale value due to the motor.

If you’re a Honda fanboy wouldn’t you prefer the Acura?

Get the IS. Better resale, better engine, and more competitive to the Germans

Neither. M340 will blow the doors off both these cars but I had to go Japanese, the Lexus

Hi, I’m new here! I am starting a business as a parenting coach.

How do I find the right person in the “big company” to email/cold call? Just tying cold call makes me nauseous.🙃

Is there a guide to hourly billing as a contract attorney. I obviously subtract for times i pick up the phone. Example minus 10 min at the end of an hour. But what about if I am looking something basic up that a seasoned attorney wouldn’t be. Or what if my skills are weak in a certain area and it takes way longer than what it should. Is there a suggested schedule of how long a task is to take.

I want one really bad and just miss being home In the summers and out on the boat with my friends. I don’t want to make an impulse decision but man I also want my own without derailing my retirement, eventual house down payment, etc.
