I did it also for Helga (previous car) which came to 6-11% so I selected that one.
I can afford to write off the 513 purchase price in one year.. based on lots of daft friends and colleagues paying almost that a month for a car

its the fuel that Mullers us Europeans though! I'd probably save 1500-2000 PA at US petrol prices
