90 posts and no one pointed out insurance costs, especially with being under 25. I find the under 10K market to be difficult especially if your not very hands on with things. The other thing you really need to keep in mind is storage of said 2nd/weekend car. That will really limit your living arrangements especially around a major city. Especially when they require a dedicated garage. Trust me, it quickly becomes a bane, especially when you are really attached to it. Get comfortable with your job, sort out a semi-long term living situation and then see where a fun car sits in your life. I got some quotes. The cheapest provider I found was Amica. Through them, my annual premium is around $2500 give or take, depending on the car. I put in my old A4, and it was $2300ish. With the hypothetical 335is, it went up to $2500. I wouldn't have this as a second car. I'd sell my current car and whatever car I do end up getting would become my primary car.
