I have no problem making the payments. According to Kelly Blue Book it's still worth what I paid for it. It has a very desirable color & options, and may possibly appreciate in value. I do most of my own maintenance by the way. To me it's just part of owning a sports car. There is nothing on a new one that I need, so why waste the cash?
I agree 100%. I don't think I'll ever by a new car again. I just don't see the reasoning behind it, especially given I won't ever be purchasing a collector car that will increase in value.
