For sale (sniffle). Apricot BMW.

I've had the apricot BMW for 12 years now, and it's an awesome car. But it's been our only car for about five years, and the wife has some hobbies where she needs to carry around bigger things (art canvases? art canvassi? art canvi?). We also got a taste of the new technology with a loaner a while back and were both intrigued. I love my little roadster and it look like it's straight off the showroom floor, but it makes no sense to own two cars. So anyone want a good deal on an awesome roadster convertible?

Anyway, it's kind of my wife's turn to pick the new car, and ... my god, who can afford to buy a new car these days? She was initially hoping to buy a brand new car, which we've never done, and she liked those Lexus SUVs. However, we sat down and started pricing out what she wanted and the price came to $61,157. That's not even fully tricked out. Admittedly, it was probably 80 percent of the way to fully tricked out, but come on. $61,000 for something that's going to depreciate? If I'm going to pay that kind of coinage, I'm buying a DeLorean or something. Fortunately, my wife also shook her head and said that we're not doing that.

I think we're going back to our standard approach of buying a two-year old car with relatively high mileage of 20,000 to 40,000 miles. We're low-mileage drivers, so we tend to convert high-mileage cars to low-mileage cars over time, and the mileage will pull the price down.

I'm pretty sure we're going to go with a 2014 BMW X1. We drove one for a couple of days this summer as a loaner, and it was really nice. It'll be big enough to satisfy my wife's hobbies, and you can buy a tricked-out one in the low $30s. If I can't sell my beloved apricot Z3 outright, we'll trade it in and can probably get the cost below $30k, which seems reasonable. Anyone got a good deal on a BMW X1 for me?

But seriously, how do these companies sell $60,000 vehicles? Many of the BMWs run in that range, the Lexus SUVs run that, and don't even get me started on the Porsches. I was kind of interested in that new SUV of theirs, but I'm not going to put off retirement to buy one.

DO NOT SELL YOUR ROADSTER!!!
Explain to your wife that a man of you stature( business owner, job creator, CP icon)
needs either a roadster or a mistress (probably both)
But the car is already paid for and still runs well

while a mistress not only will cost more, but the time of maintenance will be astronomical...

Most of the time. Usually a guy good with a buffer can fix it if its just scratched

If you are lazy and just leave it on, it does more harm than good IMHO because it traps dirt and moisture and ultimately screws up the paint because the paint that is not covered by the bra fades while the paint under the bra stays the same color, thus creating a very bad overall look.
Those things are usually a real bitch to remove and install. I've never heard of anyone removing and reinstalling them every time it's driven

No use paying new price, have that wholesale friend take your list of requirements along to auctions and eventually you'll get a call with what you want, at a superior price....the ones the lots pay plus commission.

Also, if you really love your current car and are only selling it due to yearly expenses......put it in storage state.
I had my buddy pick up my last ride. Saved 7-10 grand.

New Cars are expensive. We just picked up a new GMC Yukon. Easy to get to 60 grand and above.

Thats just insane. I have a 5 bedroom house with a value of 170k. No way can a car be worth 42% of that.

for sure, i passed because i didn't really like the new body style AND i have little ones who are rough on shit.

hell i looked at some that had almost 100K on them that were priced around 30, passed on them too. ended up going the rainman route and bought one a couple years old with 43K that looks brand new inside and out for 7-10 under book (depending on where you are looking)
