Thanks, I don't know if I will modify them since I am completely happy with the package.

I was browsing leasebusters for a smooth riding car/SUV and found it last week. I love the red and white combo because it appears less flashy than my orange one.

Amazing congratulations! How are you dealing with driving in the snowy/slushy roads?

Thanks, I have winter tires on the orange car. It's not bad at all in the few times that I was caught in the slushy stuff. I believe the white one has not seen snowy roads because it still has summer tires on. The F150 is my favorite winter beater.

Pardon my ingnorance can you explain the lease buster plan. Are you keeping it and buying it out after the remaining lease period or just playing with it for a while?

Leasebusters.com is generally where people put up their current leases for transfer. Some people sweetened the deal by adding a lot of cash incentive for someone to assume the remainder of the lease.
For my GSF, I will stay on the lease for the next two years because the implied interest rate is only 1.9%. I will most likely buy out the car at the end.
I now have a few days to think over what to do with two GSFs on hand. I saw an RCF supercharger thread in the other forum that looks like fun (800 hp on stock everything). Alternatively, I might sell/trade in the orange one for a smooth riding car/SUV in the near future. I think this is depending on whether I keep my 1992 NSX or not. I am running out of parking spaces.
