While it would likely meet his comfort requirement, I don't think it'd be fast enough

You also need to factor in risk obviously - stock market may average better than x%, but there are no guarantees.

Still, there is no part of me that can imagine paying a monthly car payment. I took a very short term loan from my dad in 2003 to buy an E36 M3, but that was because I was just coming out of school and had nothing.

If you put your money in the stock market expecting an automatic return you're gonna get fleeced. Of course I'm not addressing you Nick, just the general public.

Also.

I found a 2010 335i for sale.

Private party
$35,000
15,000 miles
sport package
Corsa Axleback Exhaust
black with brown interior
WARRANTY THROUGH 2016 cus of CPO, and a few other things.

I think I will get it. I will probably just pay cash. The way I spend my money, I do not want to handle payments. I do not like having to pay attention to details, and I like having a totally worry-free budget.

I also like knowing that other than the money that goes towards my one payment, my mortgage, the rest of the money is all mine.

I think I will probably mod the car, simple stuff that won't *** the warranty. Intake, reflash that can be reversed. Done.

it's funny how 335i was suggested and you passed on it and bought a $3000 miata instead.

Also.

335i review

Very nice car. Quiet. Smooth. Kinda slow but chip should help.-Not nearly as visceral or raw as 135. I already own two miatas tho.

I can tell that this car is begging for big downpipe a d exhaust. Sorry bby not yet. Fun to drive tho. Power curve is pretty good.

Interior. Very cushy n plush. Makes me feel good about myself and my personal success. That is what i wanted. Thanx forum. Not exactly super snazzy at all but with a little bodykittery and aesthtics stuff car should look tre nice

Oh. And i paid cash bitches.

Congrats but still kinda dumb paying cash. If it gets wrecked tomorrow you are out 35k on the spot while you pray the insurance company pays you back. Just another reason. But hey, different strokes...

PROTIP: don't touch it. Drive it. Later get an exhaust and tune. Have it installed by reputable shop. PROFIT
