re: If you had less than $20K to buy a car as an investment, what would you buy? - man117
Agree about E39 M5 and would probably vote for the E60 M5 as well (that v10 should be sought after in the future). Clownshoes (the S54 in particular) are not at the bottom of any curve. Demand (prices) for those are already high....

re: Are wages in CA really that much higher than LA? - man117
Housing is expensive and so are property taxes and income tax. Groceries are more expensive as well. Cars are probably cheaper due to the sheer volume that gets sold. Clothing and other stuff is normal. Wages are not 3-4 times higher. 1. Public school is fine. 2. Houses and lots on average are s...

re: Construction loan question - man117
[quote]This means your rate can/will fluctuate up or down after 12 years. Sounds risky or scary, but the average homebuyer stays in their house for 7 years anyways. [/quote] What he said. The 4.25 rate is not worth the ARM. When I was shopping Whitney basically put you in a 5 year ARM at 2.875% dur...

re: Car trouble: should I just buy a new one?? - man117
[quote]With all the resources available on the internet today I dont know why so many people let the dealer bend them over for repairs. You can repair most things yourself with a basic tool kit and an afternoon.[/quote] This is true although in this case it probably would be best to let a reputab...

[quote]Angry that it's $2k to fix the AC. [/quote] Shop around. The AC compressor on 99 Lexus GS finally failed after 16 years at around 220k. Went to the Lexus dealer and was told $2100 to fix. Bought the new OEM compressor and dryer online and brought to a shop that specialized in imports. Ended ...

re: Will the 28 TOPS requirement keep students in LA? - man117
[quote]No, serious question. I have not kept up with the ACT scores since I last took the damn thing '07. What percentile would that be for La students. I took the ACT and got a 24 the first time I took the thing.[/quote] I think it needs to go up but a 28 will probably cut a lot of people off. L...

re: Shingle indentification? - man117
[quote]Pretty sure that's a CertainTeed product. Not 100% sure of the color type but it's part of their specialty shingle color style. The clay tile at the ridge and hip is obviously an add to the roof system. Shingles are an architectural shingle.[/quote] I think it's "weathered wood". Thanks! ...
