If you make only $30k a year, you shouldnt buy a new car. Buy a reliable used car. Spending a lot of money on a vehicle and forgoing saving for retirement or paying off other debt is a moronic choice. Sorry, it just is. Yeah, i want an M3, but I dont want to have to scrape by or be working when im 70 just to satisfy my car craving at 38.

That being said, i cant wait till i get an M3. Used of course.
