Re: 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid EX-L???

Thank you for your thoughts. It looks like it's almost unanimous. I shouldn't buy it. That was where I was leaning too. Maybe I will shove the offer back over the desk another time to see if they get desperate with the 2018's coming out. Just looking at the dealer's inventory over the last couple mo...

2017 Honda Accord Hybrid EX-L???

Is it ever worth it to buy a new car earlier than planned to get a great deal on a model year close out? Here's the scoop. *Currently my wife and I own a 2011 Civic (119k miles great condition) and a 2012 CR-V (88k miles great condition). *We weren't planning on replacing either until at least 150k ...

Re: BMW Z3 or Z4 or nothing at all?

Thanks for all the help. I test drove a Miata,Z3, Z4 and a Nissan 350z. Didn't really care for any of them. About to give up, I stumbled across a mint condition 2009 VW Eos. Originally, not on my list. After driving it and realizing that it may be just a smidge more practical, I made the leap and pu...

Re: BMW Z3 or Z4 or nothing at all?

The waters are officially muddied. Wow! My head hurts. I looked up all my options and it most definitely did not simplify the decision. I still like the BMZ Z3 and Z4. The Nisssan 350z convertible is really tugging at my heart strings. I had a friend with a Miata. Really fun car. I like the styling ...

BMW Z3 or Z4 or nothing at all?

This is such a fun and informative site. Thank you for being a great community. I am currently looking to add a BMW Z3 or Z4 to our stable of cars. (Ha-ha...) I currently drive a 2011 Honda Civic and my wife drives a 2013 Honda CRV. I'm just looking to add a fun convertible sports car to the mix. I ...

Re: Scooter for local commute - Honda PCX 150, etc...

I own a 2013 Honda PCX 150. I bought it used with 1,600 miles for around 2k. I would do it all over again. It is a lot of fun. I will leave the math for others, but sometimes you have to make decisions based on living life! The gas mileage is unreal. It seems like you never have to fill up. It can g...

College town rental property a good idea?

This board has helped me in the past a great deal. For that, thank you! I am considering (in the v-e-r-y early stages) purchase of a rental property in a small rural college town. (Oxford, Ohio.) Here are the details. *The house is listed at $139k. Could probably get it for $135k. *It is a three bed...

Re: Which new phone is the Best Buy for the money

Wow. The Moto G4 seems like a wonderful deal. Would this be a similar phone technologically as an iPhone 6?

Re: Which new phone is the Best Buy for the money

You guys are on it. Thank you. The budget is $0-$400. The more affordable the better. I'm leaning towards the Samsung j3.

Which new phone is the Best Buy for the money

It's that time of year again. My wife's birthday. I have decided to look into purchasing a new phone for her. Her current phone is an I-phone 4s. She wants an upgrade. She is not brand loyal. I am looking for the best bang for the buck. She is not a heavy data user. She would like a 4g capable phone...

Long term cd vs bonds?

There is a local credit union in our area offering a 80 month cd at a rate of 3.0%. Would this be a better investment than investing in bond funds within a 401k? There is a 6 month penalty if funds are removed prior to the completion of the 80 month term. Not sure if any of this matters, but here ar...

Re: The first day of the rest of my life [help with investment direction]

Thanks for your help so far. The 100k is a recent addition to our bank account. I was invested in my previous employer's real estate and I was bought out when I left. Currently the money is just in low interest savings, but I'm looking to place it somewhere better. (Hopefully)

The first day of the rest of my life [help with investment direction]

On Monday I will be making a career change. For now, I'm super excited about starting the new job. The new job pays substantially less but hopefully will make me substantially happier and offer a ton more free time to be spent with family, friends and on personal endeavors. Thankfully, because my wi...
