No, it isn't.

That's why I said over.

I also said condo.

I quite like the look of the Harrier. Plus, y'know, VTOL car is pretty cool.

Alternatively, I have a 3,000 SG$ monthly allowance, so could presumably get an older Mustang or something.

I'll be driving from Singapore to Johor over the border two or three times a week. The other days Ruth will have the car.

Probably the CLA, but they're all a pretty uninspiring bunch.

Just googled them. That's possibly the most catastrophically ugly front end of a car I've ever seen.

It looks like a dustbin laid down on its side. Definitely Malicool though.

You want something anonymous, with a large boot, and decent suspension​.

Gah. That Toyota thing is reminiscent of an American fridge that's mid-mutation into a bus; that's more uggo than I can handle.

Who honestly puts this thing on a design screen and thinks "...wow that's awesome, I'm proud of my 10 minutes work", and, moreover, who the hell buys them?

Unbelievable.

If I had to choose from that list I'd go with one of the two new Mercs (take your pic), but man, you haven't been spoilt here, chap. :(
I'd be looking into taking the "I'll run my own car, thanks" option

Congrats; I've always said I could always see something worthwhile in ALL bikes and trikes, from humble 'peds all the way up to corpulent Gold Wings... but I'll be damned if I can see anything good about this shed of a thing.

I quite like the Toyota Harrier, but I'm a sucker for SUV barges.

Ruth likes the Merc GLA as she prefers small cars. I suspect we'll take the 3k pcm and find something ourselves though.

There is a most excellent MTS, and get a driver to take you out of country. Pocket the rest.

That's a ridiculous amount per month. It seems very high compared to the cars being offered.
