Well, I'm not a girl, so I don't have any wardrobe suggestions for you unfortunately... ;-) I do think that's great that you're deciding to buy an AMG Mercedes - and not necessarily because it just looks "cute" or anything, haha! I can definitely appreciate anyone really who does some research and inquiry into the purchase of a new vehicle, especially an expensive one - men or women. There are a lot of guys out there who just jump into things as well without thinking about it, believe me! IDK what you do for work out in Macon, GA to afford a nice new Benz, but you must be doing well enough. (I know taxes are cheaper down south at least than up here in New York...) I finally got a decent job myself, but even I could only afford to get a 28 year old used Mercedes myself, lol. I mean I still love it, don't get me wrong...
Just out of curiosity, but were you planning on leasing the car or buying it with financing or do you have the cash to pay for it outright? The latter is the best way of doing it IMO, but if you can't afford to purchase it outright, I'd definitely suggest financing it if you can get a good enough interest rate. I wouldn't suggest leasing the car myself, you lose too much that way. The best option I think as well is to get last year's model or even look for a 2-3 year old lease buy-back car with low mileage. Let someone else take the big hit driving it off the lot - and in the end you can save a ton of money and still get a basically new car out of it.
Good luck with your purchasing decision and hopefully the dealer in Atlanta, GA will treat you better. (Don't count on it though, lol...) Just don't let the salespeople push you around or anything! For instance, if you want a manual or a manu-matic (or whatever they call it - basically an automatic transmission that you shift like a manual without needing a clutch...) get it! Don't let them shy you away from it into getting an auto just because you're a girl! Get the car you want, after all in the end it's YOUR money, so don't let them tell you how to spend it! Otherwise, you should be in good shape!
(P.S. - I love Bones! Sadly, I'm no Booth myself, lol! I've often wondered what it would be like to be in a relationship with someone like that... Probably not as much fun in the end as I would have first thought!)
