        NTA. I know a black guy that just bought one of these lol. Now before you say I shouldn't let blacks dictate what I enjoy, the issue comes from adhering to a look that Africans subscribe to. They sag their pants, braid their hair and drive European rentals. I don't want to be associated with any of that so I stick to japan built.

          I’ve driven Japan built cars all of my life and I’m tired of driving cars for poor people. The 2011 528i had a na, port injection inline 6 engine with a reputation for reliability. I don’t care about numbers or lap times, and the 240 hp it has is enough for me. It’s not only about the look, it’s the combination of it with other desirable features.

It's annoying seeing things like Broncos or new Tacomas that I could have afforded 5 years ago when everything sold for less than MSRP but not now that dealers are charging $10-20k extra for and knowing that the people I see on the street in them are the reason dealers can get away with it.

      I used to. Then when I had my first salaried "big boy" job as an accountant I went out and bought a 3 series (f30, pre owned but new enough to still be covered by the factory warranty at the time. Like 45k miles on it.) It was nice at the time but the sense of pride, and at least one rod bearing, wore off before the payments did. I make more than double what I did then but am not even considering a new car. I'll stick to modifying my shitboxes because it brings me more joy, plus there is basically nothing being made that I want anyway.

    Your car is the quickest way for someone to determine your worth. When you see someone exit a Ferrari, you automatically know they're above you. Actually, most of you probably cope and convince yourself they're up to their eyeballs in debt but nonetheless you saw them and immediately got defensive because your little ego got hurt simply by them existing and driving a nice car.

    That's what a car does - it immediately displays your status. It says either "yep, that's right. I make enough money to afford this car" or "I'm so poor I have to drive a beater to make ends meet". Your car immediately determines your value as a human. Expensive car = high income = high paying job = high value employee. It immediately tells people you're intelligent.

            Holy shit just go ahead and shout: "I'm a financially moronic poorgay!" Unless you have poorgay, bottom feeder credit, you can lock in a 5% interest rate on a new car. Want to know what the S&P500 has, on average, returned YoY the last 20 years? 10%. What does this mean?

            Well, if 2 people were to buy a $50,000 car - 1 paying cash and the other financing it @ 5% over 84 months - the one who financed it would have THOUSANDS more than the moron who paid cash.

            Finance Bro:
            $0 down
            $50,000 invested @ 10% annual returns
            Portfolio after 84 months: $97,435

            Cash moron:
            Buys car outright
            Puts his would-be car payment ($706.69) into the S&P500 every month
            Portfolio after 84 months: $84,078

            A difference of over $13,000 hahahaha holy shit what a moron. Yeah great business strategy there, dumbfrick. Expand this out another 30 years into retirement:
            Cash cuck morons portfolio: $1,467,110
            Finance Chad's Portfolio: $1,700,182

            The roofs are concrete as well here anon, that's why. There's also the lesser homes with what we call "light roofs" (sheet metal roofing, ceilings made separately with a layer of air inbetween) but those are poverty spec. A nice home here has concrete beams/columns, brick walls and concrete roof which doubles as a ceiling. We also build homes that are able to support a second floor in the future. Basements are rare.

            There are a lot of modern homes that use brick for structure, they're just expensive custom builds and now people use ICF instead.
            The problem with ICF is that like commercial buildings the reinforcement rebar eventually rusts, and the only solution is to either use polymer rebar (not as strong) or non-rusting alloys (way more expensive). A house that you'd consider a "poorgay shack" made of top tier materials would probably cost half a million dollars in materials alone, before getting into labor and region-dependent land costs.

            Brick is shit for structure and no building in the modern first world uses it for bearing walls.
            CMU blocks are fine and can be reinforced, so they at least have significantly more tensile capacity and can resist wind, seismic, eccentric loading, etc.
            >reinforcement bar eventually rusts
            Sure, if the wall isn't waterproofed and flashed properly. If you're worried about that, you can epoxy coat rebar, whose only downfall is slight increase in cost and longer lap and development lengths.
            Next up would be concrete walls, reinforced, obviously. Those would be premium in my mind.
            Precast concrete panels are another option, but those remind me of warehouses/gyms/cheap and boring buildings.
            Stepping back to smaller scale buildings -- in lieu of wood framed walls, cold-formed metal studs are a decent, but relatively expensive option. Lateral stability is similar to wood framed walls, but diagonal strapping is more common than relying on either gyp or plywood sheathing as typical for wood wall.
            Wait.. isn't this a thread about cars?

            What kind of moronic standard of construction is typical by you, that moisture gets *inside* the walls of a structure?
            And as for fires, the interior core being wood is only a concern if the structure is already on fire.
            Your home nation *does* have fire resistant material regulations like every first world nation, right? I don't think you even said what yours is...

            Also, concrete is inherently a worse material for roads than asphalt. It is dangerously slick to drive on, does not handle heat expansion, and is a b***h to repair.

            If you buy modest houses you can put down less than 20% and get better interest rates than investment loans. Then you move to a new house after a year and rent it out. Rinse and repeat a few times and you have your retirement set. Have the tenants pay off you mortgage.

    No because any person who puts that much emphasis on a car is compensating, and anyone who puts that much emphasis on materialistic objects in order to feel happiness will never truly attain it.

    You'll get a car, you'll feel happy at first, then just like most things, it'll get old eventually and you'll need something new to get the same dopamine hit that you mistook for happiness before (just like drugs). You'll never be truly content with a view on life like that.

    If anything, I actually feel sorry for them. It's a destructive cycle when it comes to inner peace. That's not cope because I learned the hard way. I'm glad I broke free.

      Your post is 100% true but I can tell there's nothing about you that "stands out". Nothing remarkable about you. If there was a single desirable trait you exhibited, you would know how good it feels to "mog" others. To feel above them.

      No, we're all perfectly secure with ourselves - it is merely fun to be "above" others and have people desire your life. You, and 99% of people on DA, are content with your mundane life because you know that you are incapable of changing it. So you become complacent with it. "Fox and the sour grapes" type of deal.

        I know you're trolling and insinuating that you have remarkable traits despite being on DA, but I'll bite. "Mogging" others and using it as happiness hunting would never work if it weren't for the ones you "mog" existing. You need them to be on the other end - otherwise it's just you sitting in a box looking like a clown that's lying to himself. You, again, are a slave to the ones you "mog", they are not to you, because they are not trying use you as a source for feeling good about themselves.

        Also, those who have "remarkable" and "desirable" traits that are genuine are not materialistic in nature. They are usually character traits, the way they carry themselves, how their influence impacts other people's lives. These are the traits that are people don't need to convince others of buying into in order to feel them within themselves, it comes naturally.

        If you need to force it out of someone through "mogging", then you are actually miserable deep down and ironically, you're "mogging" yourself.

            The hot-hand, gambler’s fallacies are not just for the craps table. While there’s a lot more you can do to stack odds on your income in this year and the next, nothing is guaranteed. You should be mindful of that. 90th percentile is probably around 120 to 135 or so for your age.

            I’m going to let you in on a little secret. You’re either going to regress to the mean, around 100k or you’re going to jump to 185, 250k etc. That’s what happens.

            >paying cash for a car
            LMAOOOOO

            Holy shit just go ahead and shout: "I'm a financially moronic poorgay!" Unless you have poorgay, bottom feeder credit, you can lock in a 5% interest rate on a new car. Want to know what the S&P500 has, on average, returned YoY the last 20 years? 10%. What does this mean?

            Well, if 2 people were to buy a $50,000 car - 1 paying cash and the other financing it @ 5% over 84 months - the one who financed it would have THOUSANDS more than the moron who paid cash.

            Finance Bro:
            $0 down
            $50,000 invested @ 10% annual returns
            Portfolio after 84 months: $97,435

            Cash moron:
            Buys car outright
            Puts his would-be car payment ($706.69) into the S&P500 every month
            Portfolio after 84 months: $84,078

            A difference of over $13,000 hahahaha holy shit what a moron. Yeah great business strategy there, dumbfrick. Expand this out another 30 years into retirement:
            Cash cuck morons portfolio: $1,467,110
            Finance Chad's Portfolio: $1,700,182

            Nearly $250,000 in opportunity cost GONE because your stupid ass thought you were saving money LMAOOOOOOO

            While this is broadly true, you are taking risk because you always have to earn to cover it. Work is unavoidable, but it’s much nicer to work knowing that you’re not dependent on your job in such a way that you explode if your cash flow stops. Try living below your means a bit, it’s nice to know that literally nothing can hurt you.

            >Don't you get jealous of seeing people with nice cars?
            No. Not anymore. Not for a long time.
            >Sure you can cope all day long "oh me probably financed it. muh depreciation asset. his dick is probably small too" but don't you ever get tired of driving shitty old cheap cars?
            Not all of my cars are cheap, even if they aren't top of the line, but even still, I'd rather have my clapped out old truck than a new one. I have nice, newer cars that I take great care of and have better performance capabilities, but my old shitbox makes me happy.
            >don't you wish you had a car that made you happy just looking at it, and even happier when driving it, without worrying your whole life about money?
            I don't worry about money in relation to my cars. I have other priorities because I'm a fricking adult. When those priorities are taken care of, I can spend money on my cars that I love and do fun things with them. I don't need a Porsche 911 GT3RS to be happy. I have a smile on my face every time I get behind the wheel of my cars because I chose them out of love for what they are. I can spend money on them to fine tune and improve upon the existing characteristics and do the things I love with them.

            This is a moronic and childish perspective. When I see someone in a nice, expensive car in traffic, my thoughts are, "Wow, nice car, I hope he's enjoying it."

They are all easy to work on for the most part, parts are still mainly available, though some had to be ordered from autohaus.au and shipping is a b***h from AU. For the things I can’t fix myself (there are many) there are still plenty of specialty shops around even if you have to travel a bit to get to them. I personally use a specialty shop that only does old mercs and BMWs. They do great work and have never heard any issues from others about them. If you want to buy an old car, just go for it man.

    I don't get jealous of the people you consider to have "nice" cars because I hate most new cars but also because jealousy isn't one of my traits. Do I look with disdain at those I can tell that can't even comfortably pay for their "nice" cars? Guilty. But don't mistake that for jealousy. I don't even wish I had their cars. Can't say the same about Jay Leno for example, I'm not jealous either but I do wish I could afford to drive those beautiful machines.
    As for your pic, BMWs after the separate quad headlight design (save for the E38 and Z series up to the E89) just don't do it for me. Seriously the latest car I was genuinely excited about was the Alfa Romeo Giulia.
    So-called "luxury" cars with a tablet sloppily placed atop the dashboard offend my taste. It's lazy design for the unwashed masses who are wooed by shiny beads, spiritual Black folk. The fact the Model 3 is sometimes called a "luxury" car has never ceased to baffle me. Peak automotive happiness is probably driving a perfectly maintained W140 S600.

      I guarantee the mini gets 10x more people looking at it, pointing it out in the street, photographs, thumbs up, smiles, whatever metric of engagement you can think of compared to the Aston while being a tenth of the price. You don't need an expensive car to get noticed. A Twingo will have people shidding and cumming more than a silver Aston Martin or Ferrari. Thinking you need an expensive car to stand out is a stupid hypebeast wealth trap mindset.

          A silver Aston looks nice, but to the average person it’s just a nice luxury coupe, nothing much else

          It isn't cope, it is facts. You're allowed to be proud of your BMW but they are a dime a dozen. All 911s look the same, Mustangs can be found at the Hertz rental counter, and if you're driving a Ferrari or Lambo people probably just think you got rich off Bitcoin. Frick, they probably think you are driving a new Corvette.

          A Twingo or a Figaro or some cheap, cute JDM or British shitbox will get you noticed way more often than any of the clout chaser cars will, both by normies and by car people alike. You don't even have to break the bank to get these cars. People love Acty vans and they're like 10k.

            I kind of agree. A new BMW is still working class since the owners desperately need them to start and get them to work just as much as a Toyota owner.
            Real power and wealth is driving a some crap that won’t work all the time, but you just laugh at that silly Twingo/Mini/Maserati and call the office and tell them you’re not coming in today and go to the nearest bar and do some work there instead.

        Also there's one exception, and it's if Gerard Pique is behind the wheel because of the infamous song telling him he swapped a Ferrari for a Twingo (Shakira compares herself to a Ferrari and his gf he dumped her for to a Twingo, the Twingo is used as the butt of a joke)

    You are judged by what you drive. Countless articles, what your car says about you. And just like how you dress, wear your hair, over-all appearance. Also dictates your lot in life. Why blue haired fatties are so resentful, social rejects. They know they're behind the curve and won't naturally fall into a good life like a hot chick can. But men, or most men, can shape up, clean up and save up. Get some nice slacks, button down shits and decent shoes with a belt that matches. Iron your fricking clothes! And buy a decent nice car. Dress for the job you want, not what you have. Put yourself where you want to be. Remembering back, out of school driving beaters, working new jobs. Notice the bosses and upper guys all drive Merc/BMW/Audi/Porsche/Lexus. Notice the parking lot of other employees and notice they all have fairly nice cars. Look back at my beater with no a/c. A smart move is to start dressing like the top guys and drive what they do. Become one of them. Move up!
    I know this post is meaningless to coal miners and steel workers. I dare say it helps though, going in asking for a job over 100k and you drive a 92 Civic with faded paint and yellow headlights, they may not take you seriously. Remember, no matter where you go, act like you've been there before and you belong there. And look the part.

    I don't feel jealous when I see people with nice cars. I only really care about getting the cars I want, and appreciate other interesting cars, but that's it. I honestly will never look twice at a BMW, Audi, Mercedes or rolls of any trim level or cost, because they're all kinda for status obsessed gaybois and women. not even coping. If I was given a free M3, AMG or RS7 tomorrow, I would sell it and get something that's actually interesting.

    Depends on the car itself mostly. When it comes to mercs or BMW's I look in the back and see that it is just the lower model so not much jealousy there. I don't see EV's with envy except for the ioniq ones. I used to be really jealous of supercar owners when I was young, but now I see them as worthless toys owned by people who are not going to use them.

    Why don't poorgays realize that debt isn't the negative status symbol they think it is. The richest people are the ones in the most debt. Money flows, and every financially and emotionally successful person has a steady amount of money coming in and going out. If you're treating money like a static asset that you must only accumulate then you are doing something wrong. The "hoard money until you can pay up front" mentality is a sign of a turd worlder mindset. Typically paired with lack of a steady income, unemployment or minimum wages, no father figure growing up, and a tendency to blame the juice for his poordom. That leads them to have to cope by thinking everyone is in their same grim financial situation that anyone driving a car worth more than their McDonald's salary is drowning in loans and can't make payments.

        It’s true. They have a lot of debt but they also have a lot of assets so they have a high net worth. Obviously cars aren’t great wealth building assets but people still need to drive them and wealthy people might also want expensive cars. So they buy them with debt, write it off for their business and use the liquidity with their cash to do other things. It doesn’t mean they are drowning in debt or something moronic like that.

    Not all of my cars are cheap, even if they aren't top of the line, but even still, I'd rather have my clapped out old truck than a new one. I have nice, newer cars that I take great care of and have better performance capabilities, but my old shitbox makes me happy.
    >don't you wish you had a car that made you happy just looking at it, and even happier when driving it, without worrying your whole life about money?
    I don't worry about money in relation to my cars. I have other priorities because I'm a fricking adult. When those priorities are taken care of, I can spend money on my cars that I love and do fun things with them. I don't need a Porsche 911 GT3RS to be happy. I have a smile on my face every time I get behind the wheel of my cars because I chose them out of love for what they are. I can spend money on them to fine tune and improve upon the existing characteristics and do the things I love with them.

    This is a moronic and childish perspective. When I see someone in a nice, expensive car in traffic, my thoughts are, "Wow, nice car, I hope he's enjoying it."

    Yup, from sim-track timing on many tracks, the 992 GT3 RS is KICK ASS! Wish I had that nice car BAD, but I'm no shill/scammionaire...

    Also, the 997.2 Carrera S works similar wonders once you learn apexes and the car's many quirks, you can easily get within 5-10 seconds of a 992.

    Might grab a used one in the future should I save up enough. So, yes, but not for long!

      I mean I'm sure there are SOME jealous homosexuals who pretend to be gearheads to hate on people having "nice" things, but for those of us who actually find most modern cars absolutely appaling it's really uncalled for to say we're jealous. Behold, a mistake in the matrix, one of the last cars with soul ever created. Naturally, it had to come from Italy. Its roar makes hearts race and spines feel shivers. Men and women alike are fascinated by its presence, almost hypnotized. It's passion in mechanical form. It speaks to the heart, not to some bean counter's spreadsheet.

        You need to go outside and just count just how many generic NPC shitboxes there are for every single even remotely enthusiast car.
        Someone choosing a new M340i instead of a generic Corolla hybrid with a CVT is an EXCELLENT choice from my perspective.
        Yet when you go online on DA, a supposed car enthusiast board, everyone would shame you for this because it's not "enthusiast" enough, or it's "soulless," or it's "ugly," or some other nonsense (if they are not saying it out of jealousy, that is), without understanding the context that it has a superior engine and transmission to 99.9% of the cars on the road. That car is just an example.

I make enough to keep the lights on, a roof over my head, and as many shitboxes as I can handle. I get excited over wagon Camrys on the road, especially in shit colors. I like watching panther bodies be driven by young people, and I enjoy all the little failures that the car industry has put out. I'm essentially that guy that likes to frick uggos.
