Befitting a leader?

I remember overhearing some Aussie Christians talking about church leaders and how much they should get paid. One church leader had a nice car and some people were questioning this.

Should Christian leaders get paid enough to buy this type of car, when most of the church members wouldn't be able to afford such an expensive car?

I was interested to hear an opposite observation. Here in Cambodia a Westerner who is leader of an international Christian team was riding a bike as his main form of transport. Some of his team let him know they thought this was inappropriate for a leader. The implication was he should be in a car, or at least on a moto.
