I honestly think that from a pure fun standpoint, it's superior to a C7. Rawness, etc.

some might describe that character :triggered:

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

Yea, this is :disappoint: The wizzards of brub have not shown you favor with this car, that's for sure.

:notsure:

It's a way nicer car, yes, but it is at least 3X the cost. My C5 has been less than $350/month for everything including fuel, depreciation, insurance, maintenance, repairs. They are CHEAP cars hence the Mexican popularity.

Hard to compare.

My 2011 Grand Sport was equal to the C5 Z06 if comparing new to new.

$350/month for a 20 year old car seems like a lot to me.

You basically can't get under $300/mo in any car, period. Maybe a 90s 4 cylinder Camry on shit tires with no insurance.

Amortize the $2k down, plus taxes, insurance, and fuel...I bet it's pushing over 350/mo.

If I drove the car more and/or it could be my primary car, I could justify it.

Having a new ZFG mobile :truk: is really nice.

Yeah, not just "Monthly Payment" - actual all-in transportation costs. Assume it's your only car too, so no bro-discounts on insurance for having $200k in vehicles insured.

I don't really get a discount for multi-car because they all go over 7500 miles a year. No matter what I buy my insurance is $80-$110 a month, depending on the value of the car.

Amortize the cost of a C5 over a couple years and I bet it's more than $350/month.

Depreciation is the only "cost" so the entire analysis is :bs: until after the car is sold.

C5's have minimal depreciation if they're owned right.

Mine certainly cost more than that, but I'm a moran. I'm probably over $300/mo all-in on the Vibe over the past 4 years... cars ain't cheap.

The best I could probably think to do would be to buy a used volt/cruze/mazda3 or similar boring sedan with low-ish mileage for about $10k cash and drive it NFG with no mods and liability-only insurance. That should last around 10 years before being pretty much worthless ($83/mo), plus cost around $50/mo for insurance, maybe $500/yr in maintenance, and $100/mo in fuel. Total cost about $275/mo.

The bold is the only universal truth, no matter how you feel about cars regarding new, used, or leasing.

Here's one that I think could be relatively "fun" for a cheap-ish DD: Jetta Hybrid. They have to be near worthless by now, but they have the 1.4T with 7-speed DSG and little electric motor for torque boost, plus the IRS setup from the GLI. That's a :notbad: powertrain and chassis combo.

Drop tags and insurance on the Fiat. Driver has shown to be a liability anyway.

"Fun" plus Hybrid, and the CR-Z isn't total poverty inside.

Jettas aren't cheap yet, at least, according to CarMax;

I'm actually kind of serious, it's an interesting choice for an automatic all around appliance. Probably better than the mazda3 we have here. GLI suspension and refinement, near Prius efficiency. I didn't realize that they existed back when we bought the wife's car.
