13 Nov 2007
chongsf If I am not wrong, Latio interest rate is 2.5% while Avante is 2.8% (or 2.88%) if you take 7 or 10 years loan.

nrafee hyundai is 2.5%

resell value is indeed a worry.. unless i dun sell the car right?

To me, the person who is in first position after the first 3 turns will win the race. Overtaking is simply so hard on the Monaco circuit. =(

Massa might even lose to Hamilton here in my point of View.

Massa didn't have a good session losing out to Kimi.
