well, i've been debating this for a while now.... i love this car to death, and its so worth the money on it... but with the house, its going to be kinda tight. reality sets in that its probably best to get something cheaper. reality sets in again, that winter is fast approaching.... which means i'll need another car again... and i don't really have a budget for it this year with the house (my closing costs are eating up nearly 10 grand of my savings... which kills my winter car fund). So, i'm thinking about selling it/trading it in for something cheaper that i can use year round. i'm thinking about getting an S4. and older one, like an 00 or 01. i know these cars have their problems... but they are f'in cheap now. example: 2000 AUDI S4 (6484452) basically, that car is 1/4th the cost i'm paying for now. would drop my monthly from 850 to 350 ish so, that would leave me 500 a month for repairs, to break even. yeah, its kinda high mileage, and i'm just using that as an example car... for 10-12 grand, i can pick up an S4, and even if it needs headgaskets, new turbos, or whatever, in the long run i'll still come up cheaper.... and have a car i can use in the winter as well. Other thoughts were buying a mid 90's tacoma or something for a couple grand and a civic. i'll probably need a truck for the house any way, and i can use the civic for a beater.... but i know i won't be happy with that. truck + s4 is probably too much as well, as i don't have any cash now, so i'll have to finance both, which is stupid. i'm about even on the M... maybe i'll loose a couple grand from payout to what i owe, but i really don't care.
