My S4 for Business
Al, You are totally correct about dollars, taxes, and making it work for me.
I have trouble thinking of this S4 experience as anything other than
fun (and safe, fast, reliable - a sleeper on the roadways too), but I
am looking into switching it's intent as the probable choice once
reality hits me later this spring.
I am a "buy the car and drive it until it does not run (can't be
repaired) kind of owner." This approach has made several [expensive]
German car choices much less expensive for me than the Oldsmobile or
Ford approach has proven to be for neighbors of mine. I just haven't
consumed cars before.
There have been questions back from several people: How much would I
spend? (Didn't want to answer that, but how about $20,000?). How many
miles per year? (Really don't know, but the worry is "way too many for
me."). Could I see your Cooper S? (I am in the Seattle area!).
I've thought another high mileage S4, a "hopped up" Audi 90 Sport
experiment, a V8? This whole note was intended to draw your opinion -
which I appreciate.
Thank You all!
