How do I scan the threads? :p
Never been too sites like these before.

You go to the KSA screen in the EB ( You put your finger on the wheel on your mouse and slowly pull your finger towards yourself (down).  While doing this, you read the list of topic subjects.  When you get to the one that mentions Pinoy and basketball (page 2), you click on it and read it.

Leasing a car from bank is never a good option. High interset rate and that also without having ownership in your name. It's better to get a cash loan from bank and get the car.

Anyways, this topic has been discussed many times. Please use google custom search box.

Cash loan from bank...good option, but would you confirm if the interest rate will be low in this case?
