I’m a bit mind f*cked right now. I’m about seven months from the end of my Q50 Silver Sport lease. There is not much to like about this car, except - I got it tuned and it is a blast to drive.
I may have mentioned in another post that my previous cars were a tuned 2014 SHO, tuned 2011 ecoboost F150, tuned and modded 2008 Mustang GT… there is certainly a common theme here.
As much as I have loved driving and tuning these cars, I’m looking at my per month cost and just want to vomit. $150 a month for insurance and $540 a month in payments (we roll everything in including taxes) and that was with some sizable negative equipment from the SHO lease.
So I’m spending nearly $700 a month… I know a lot of people spend much more but I’m just wondering if this is worth it any longer. Has anyone evaluated what they are spending and then rolled it back? What did you drive and then what did you go to after that fun ride?
I’m not looking for an analysis on how bad of a deal i must have mad on the Q or whatever, just looking for people’s opinion on moving from fast and fun to something more mundane I guess. We got my wife and my mother in law Jeep Cherokees (Limited) last fall and its a really great vehicle to drive. I think that is what has spawned all of this considering they run us about $350 a month including insurance.
Thank you in advance!
