Or rather, why do they spend so much money on a mode of transportation? By my calculations, if I made 100,000$ a year, after my budget of roughly 2k per month, taxes, 6% 401k match, 5.5k into a Roth IRA, I could save about 30k per year. That means to buy a decent car I would have to work for AN ENTIRE YEAR, making over double what most people make! to buy a BMW 135i with some options, I’d have to work a year and a half. A cool car is not worth a year of my life, especially not my young life when I should be living it up.
Is a cool car really worth a year of your life? A year of college for your kid? An entire year off work?
