I like high tech cars with blind spot and premium speakers. I’m currently looking at Mercedes or Lexus.

TC: 150k in LOW COL avg 150sq/f Los.

  • Honda Civic or Corolla. Save your tc for a home down payment. Get a nice car after the house.

      Are the older Tesla’s any good ? No enhanced auto pilot?

      Some have EAP, most don't.

    Lease if you are getting a luxury car. Don't buy as their value decreases quickly. I agree with So Long, get a nice house instead.

      Wouldn’t it be hard to stay under 10,000 miles a year ?

      It's doable only if you commute to work and that's about it. I would opt for 12k miles a year. I did a Nissan Leaf lease and had 37000 miles after 3 years. This was totally worth it for me since the lease payment was 200/month and got a 2500 rebate from the state. This covered my down payment.

    Model 3. Pretty well every other car has 5 year old tech (if not worse).

    150k TC is way too low to consider the purchase of a luxury car even if in low COL area.

      Nah, not really. I drove a newer model year Lexus, maxed out my 401k, and rented my own 2 bed apartment and still saved over half my income every month on 60k a year

      Totally disagree. Unless you can pay cash, don’t do it. Stop living on credit, especially as we are due for the next downturn. Buy one when no one else is. Plus it’s a depreciating asset.

    You're in luck my friend. I believe every car on the market has a blind spot and speakers. I'd recommend a Smart car.

    Don't you want a garage first?

      It’s a really safe state, only reason I’d want a garage for is if it was electric for charging.

      Well you don't actually buy a garage, you buy a house with garage, and you don't buy a house just for charging EVs.
      Buy the house before your luxury car.
