    I know. I suppose I should have picked something more generic to begin with. Oh well...

    I can probably find an '89 around here for $350.

    It's the same here a "good" one is 500-1000$, depreciation is a bitch.

    Kind of a shame about the new Aston, all of the proportions are heavy handed and it plays way too much to the tastes of the tasteless. The DB9 still looks good in light of this thing; this rear treatment looks like it came out of a Wings West catalog from the mid 1990's:

    They ruined the 911 with that heavy back end, looks off now:

    JV killing it in this thread now too I see.

    FWIW, paying cash when super low interest rates are available? A dollar today is worth more than a dollar in five or six years so you are in fact paying more by buying cash.

    You're 100% right.

    Problem is that some people are so bad with money that they'd never complete a payment cycle. We all know someone like that.

    I think the rear looks good.

    Wheels are ghastly, though. WTF were they thinking!

    And the irony is that he's financing his M5 too, I believe.

    :facepalm:

    Not that there's anything wrong with financing if the interest rates make sense and you can get better returns elsewhere (what you're saying).

    He also took student loans and credit card to fund his investments. You can pull this up, in this thread from about a week ago.

    I don't understand Zagato. Every time the main idea is changing the back. Their Aston was ok, but the BMW is terrible - I think the proportions are off.
