        Considering thr options for lease VS finance VS cash payment, and what the bloody think will be worth as the years go by.

        lease.

        Example:

        Based on 28k car for example
        Fianace 500 x 60 months = 30,000 ( The car will not be worth 30k after 5 years)
        Lease 300 x 48 months = 14400 ( and you can invest the other 200 per month)
        Buy - 28k , car is worth 1500 less the moment you drive it off the lot and less every year after.

          The s4 is very nice and the paddle shifting is sweet but they eat tires at an alarming rate.

          You're on Long Island so try to blend: go with a classic muscle car for 15,000 and spend the rest on gold chains and a perm.

          Or how's about a Prius? Gas isn't going to get any cheaper and you'd still have enough left over for the chains and perm.

              Not mention how much the value of a new car depreciates just driving it off the lot. Wait a year or two, the price comes down quite a bit. However, if it's in demand or a limited edition, you'll be out of luck.

                Back in the day, the place to go was down on Jerome Ave. in the Bronx. There's still probably some action down there. Check it out.

                  Well fuck, if you want a completly impractical car for that price range, the best thing you can buy is a Lotus Elise. It's as fast as a Corvette, but gets over 30 MPG because it weighs around 1900 lbs.



                  Or you could save your $ and buy a Subaru WRX STi, put $10k in it, and have a 10 second quartermile super car that can seat 5 adults and a load of groceries while driving through a blizzard.

                    You should be able to pick up a slightly used one for around $40k, or a brand new one for $54ish. Best car hands down in that price range.
                    Sporty looking car, but looks like every other car on the road these days. Go for muscle! Trust me, chicks love muscle cars.

                      It better be quick if it only weighs 2000 lb.

                            I have a 79 scout I'll sell you cheap! Don't even worry about insurance. It's negligible. Can't be stolen (without extreme efforts). The only kicker is the gas mileage on a 345 4brl. But you will more than make up for it on the investment of 47500 dollars elsewhere.

                                It still can't equal the looks or attention you get driving a red 69 SS Camaro (well the one I had wasn't a 'real' SS, it just had a SS hood. Still it looked cool. :happy8:)
