but I will not be getting the W12, or a new A8. Right now I'm trying to start up a new business, while running another business, and filing some patents (sorry can't say what it is until I get them patented). Along with this I'm selling my other cars as I'm gonna need all the extra cash I can use. I'm most likely going to get a Chrysler 300C, as I love its styling (The A8 is still my favorite). I can get a used 300C with 500 miles on it for $15k, with all options.I can use that exta $60 grand. When I get the new business of the ground and running, I will get the W12 (need a target to reach). Wish me luck.

a new 300C for $15,000? Wow!! Best wishes.

Nothing like it and not something to be sad about.

Admittedly I now lead, and didn't start, a family business started by my father but there is still nothing like being your own boss with real stakes.
Nothing like the stress but nothing like the reward either.
God's speed and it's something to be encouraged and celebrated, not to be sad about.

Will most likely be just as problematic as or more problematic than the '04 A8L. Plus, the fugly 300C is also in it's first model year. My suggestion-buy the Cadillac CTS instead. It is going into it's 3rd model year and is far superior to the 300C in every conceivable way, especially driving pleasure, quality and reliability. Plus, the CTS is the same price as that awful 300C and comes better equipped.

Starting a new business is what America is all about. If you have to drive a 1974 Chevy until its going well, more power to you!! Good luck

The plastic dash can be pulled out with one good yank, and several cracked peices of plastic. The 300C is classier, quicker, bigger, and much easier on the eyes than the knife like effect the CTS has on my eyes.

But the reliability of the 300C (in it's first year) will be just as poor as or poorer than the A8L (also in it's first year). The CTS (in it's second model year) will be far more reliable than both. But the A8L's reliability is still much better than the ultra unreliable 7 Series (now in it's third model year). The 7 Series is essentially in a category all of it's own as far as poor reliability goes.

of the ugliest cars Ive seen! The interior rattles are incredible although I guess not too incredible for a car full of plastic. The Chryslers dont have a good track record for reliability but lets hope that the 300C changes this!
