Many dealers will re spray the bumpers to enhance the appearance of the car. It comes at a small cost to the dealer and allows a higher price tag to be put on a car. In my opinion it is not a bad...

That's pretty much in line with the price of most other ultra-luxury cars. My LS back in 2011 was sticker'd at $87,000+. The point I am trying to prove is that the mere notion of having to comply...

If you pulled out hard then it's possible that the car was keeping you in the same gear as it's designed to do (basically keeping you in the power band in case you want to get on it again). ...

I have an 11 460L and aside from the road noise and a bit of an engine hum I don't hear much else. Definitely never heard of anything that sounded like a transmission noise.

Talked with Toby and he was okay with me posting the price. The 8y/125k new vehicle VSA ran me just north of $3600. The quote for the 8y/100k plan was almost $1000 less.
