The used car didn't pay any taxes.

I've got more respect for acts of "civil disobedience" that entail some actual cost to the "disobeyer". When it looks more like "stealing" I tend to think that's probably what it is.

Ah, Singapore, a model of personal freedom for other nations. It has some good points, but the rights and freedoms afforded individuals would not be primary among them.

The new car paid a whole lot of taxes - the used car has already been taxed. The cost the "disobeyer" is jail. If a tax is wrong, then avoiding it is not stealing.

I used the Singapore airport as contrasted to LAX. I never spoke one word about the country of Singapore. Please read a little more carefully.

Finally pulled the trigger yesterday!

I got a clean bill of health for leased car from the inspector, immediately emailed the local dealers to see what they were asking for the car I wanted.

It was a lot of fun - had them call on the phone, got emails while I was on the phone with dealers and they were trying to outbid each other. Finally found the winner at a local dealer, for $780 under invoice for everything i wanted! yee haw.

$21,600 before TTF
2.9% apr on 60 mths
1000 additional rebate from m*zda

so $20,600 plus financing, tax etc it's about $22,600 OTD for the 2009 model.

The car is great, fun to drive, fits everything we need and so far the zoom is adequate.

We'll see how it does on a road trip to norcal later this month loaded with 2 big boys, dog and all our stuff...
