20 year old women (or men)
Here is my point. Some things we enjoy playing up in our minds. I realize why I am buying a Tesla Model 3.
I am vain and like the cool factor.
I know this is my way to keep the world cooler and give less money to people who want bomb me.
I believe the car is worth the money.
If any of these feelings are squashed then my reason for being part of the herd is lost. I am cheep. My last new car was in 1989. The M3 needs to be cool. It needs to allow me buy an Eco Indulgence (Look it up). Most importantly I need to believe the purchase is a good deal.
I can buy a car for $15k. I am planning to spend an extra $30k on this car in return for the belief that it is cool, helps save the world, and retains value over time (8 years). If those beliefs, even in the name of being honest, are ruined...then this is not as fun.
I guess I am asking to not be faced with any reality that will ruin the fun until I have to put money (non-refundable kind) on the table. My decision won't be made until that day. Let me enjoy this until then.
