i have to say i totally agree that leasing is akin to setting your cash on
fire. i also HATE spending $$ on cars. it's SUCH a massive disinvestment [i
prefer booze, women, and carbon fiber motorcycle parts.. =]
ive always had great luck buying cheap cars, well maintained, with around
100k and dealing with the occasional hassle of repairs. im also a mod-nut,
so that works out well. if you can afford to lose $20k over the course
of 3-4 years on a car, go for it.
i bought my 98 a4 for 7grand with 100k about 1.5 yrs ago. it's been
fantastic. i always get the 'ooooh, fancy car' bit from people [not that i
care - they dont have to crawl around under it]. it broke down thje first
week i had it [the common downpipe split] and has been awesome since. i put
a ton of miles on my cars too and i live and work in SF - either bus or
moto to work.
all that said the new a4 is superpimp. a good buddy of mine who doesnt know
any better just got a new 07 a4 3.2 tip, nav, loaded for 43 grand. OUCH.
can you say "used m5" ?
