Congrats on the new digs Fred, that's a nice looking ride!
Mark whenever I first saw the Panamera the lines of it reminded me of the Mercedes Maybach for whatever reason.
I bought a brand new '08 Corolla a little less than a couple of years ago whenever the fuel prices went through the ceiling, the car now has 83k miles on it and has paid for itself over again in fuel savings from my F250 diesel that was my daily driver. The thing runs like a champ, is cheap and easy to maintain and I am also keeping the miles and wear off of the truck (kept it, I'll never rid myself of owning a truck). Certainly one of my smarter decisions regarding automobile ownership during the past several years.
