you want a sports luxury car, like an lexus is or something right.? at 18 driving an a s/l car you will probably be cop magnet, and youll probably pay anywhere from 2000-5000 dollars a year in insurance, or whatever depending on company, record and such

and used sports luxury cars are usually beat to shit and traded in, i know i used to work at a BMW dealership and we got all kinds of little coupes and sedans, nice cars but with like 60-70k miles of hard driving and other types of abuse. do the smart thing and buy something little and save your money for a vette or somthing

And don't forget the cost of repairs on your "luxury" car will be astronomical.

You're better off getting a late model sedan that's about 5 years old or older with some good safety features and a 4 or 6 cylinder engine. That way your insurance company won't rape you and you'll be able to afford it whenever something needs to be fixed.

Edit: I just read your post above. You want to buy a BMW 3 series and think it won't cost a lot to repair? Heh. Good luck with that one Hell, they rape my wife (figuratively) for repairs to her Volkswagen.

You have the rest of your life to own a nice car.

You think insurance will be expensive. Try taking your l/s car to the dealers to get an oil change, or any other repairs. The dealers will rip you off just as much as insurance.

EDIT: ^beat me to it.

well accually repair cost is the last thing on my mind. im am very fluent with cars and repair work on them. ever german cars. and its warranty would already be expired. like i said am more worried about insurance.

Don't by a german car without a warranty or deep pockets. Once that BMW hits 100k miles, you'll be paying out of your ass to have anything and everything fixed.

I love my german cars, so don't think I'm hating on them. It's just the truth.

Progressive(?). But even if you are handy with cars, the replacement parts are insanely expensive. I always figured the BMW's and such were the type of car you get after college.

But either way its your decision. I just wanted to point this out to you in case you wern't aware already. So good luck with finding a car you like, and some decent insurance.

So this is what I would do, get a car for half that price, a nice reasonable used Civic or whatever the case, take the rest of the money and store it for your insurance.

You could always just get liability insurance. That would level out the cost of paying to fix your Germanic vehicular apparatus...unless you fuck up and get in an accident, that is.

get a used 2000 saab 9-3 or 9-5. they're affordable (i'm getting one for under 8Gs) and theyre extremely reliable. just do it. . . NOW!!!
