I am talking about the people who previously would have never paid over $49k for a new car, either by choice and principle, or by the fact they couldnt "really" afford it. Not talking about the people who were already driving $80k plus cars and decided to switch to MS.
The ones that are making strong budgetary sacrifices to attain this car. Even with all the gas savings, its a fair chunk to spend on a car.
Maybe you had to resort to taking out some equity in your home line of credit, or sacrificing a annual vacation, or selling off your beloved sports team season tickets......
How does it feel after a couple of months after the 'novelty' has worn off. Regrets? Sorrow over an impulse buy perhaps?
Or definitely worth it despite the sacrifice?
