- Citibank / Finance $$>RSUIf you’re having to think about it you can’t afford it. Buying a used one? Ready for $2000 oil changes and $5000 brake replacements. Basic maintenance will crush you.
- I would recommend going with certified preowned. Save yourself tens of thousands of dollars compared to buying brand new. Anyone buying a brand new car costing greater than 200k better be making 1MM+ a year, or they're just dumb. But even then, buying a brand new car that expensive is equivalent to throwing away thousands of dollars the second you drive it off the lot. Nobody will know it was used when you pull up in it
- If you can afford a Bentley you better be in the back seat while someone is driving you.... otherwise, get a Mercedes or BMW 7 series.
- OpenTable OixB65as my gradma said to be before closing her casket, go big or go home
- Get a Range Rover autobiography (2018 +). This thing turns heads everywhere it goes but god damn the touch screen is LAGGY
- I was going to suggest that the car may not be a good choice based on your age. You don’t need to get your panties all bunched up around your va-gi-na.
There is indication that you’re too young because first you can’t afford the car and are too immature to realize it. Rule of thumb, you can afford a car if you can buy it today cash, have it burn in a fire tomorrow and get another one just like it the day after that.
Otherwise you’re too poor for a Bentley.
- Cars are just such a bad way to spend money unless it’s chump change. I have a buddy who is not rich by any means and a few years ago bought a Mercedes SL55. Awesome car, but few months later the suspension exploded. As it turned out these things have hydraulic suspension with very fragile and complex system that compensated for the outrageous weight of the car. To make a long story short. The car cost him 45k and the suspension repair was 18k.
- New tLFu71I’d pass on it. The maint fees on them are well beyond insane. 5k maints 2k maints etc. it’s excessive.
- Oath BootleggerIf you don’t have money to buy a new one, I don’t think you will have the money to maintain an old one. Each service or repair will cost a fortune.
- Microsoft richardheaAre you 50 or older? You don’t want to be more that an STD or two younger than the average owner.
