    Little different question. My 03 touring comes on lease in May. Payoff is 20,100. Problem is 88k miles. Looking at .15/mile over 60k $4200. Should I just buy it myself or try and try and trade for newer model? 2007 have gotten to pricey for me. Maybe RDX? Also have low rumble for few seconds...

    rhyme? Thats the school fight song. Sounds better with a band playing. What a difference 3 days (and a home court) makes. Beat #1 then lose to last place team in the conference on the road. RPI standing: note 6 ACC teams in the top 32.
