coping with never being able to afford a new car

>study all my life
>get masters in engineering
>find a well paid job in city ranked 7th in my country by salary
>still nowhere near owning one without taking a 4-5 year loan
I deserve to drive a new-ish sports car and I do not know how to cope anymore, I literally did everything right, except moving to a proper country....

    literally every single person that buys one of these takes out a 4 or 5 year loan dumbass
    is this just another one of those autistic 'you bought a depreciating asset' threads in disguise?

      I lied about the lenght of the loan, its at least twice that, like 20 years if I want to be safe

      So take out a loan? If you mantain it and get an M2 Competition in Manual it will appreciate because the new M2 is fricking dogshit.

      m2 competition is just facelifted m2, I do not see how its worth it

      Damn son, hit the oil rig or lrn2code

      oil rig yes, coding no

      It might work out. I made $40k until I was 30 and then my salary doubled overnight. $80k isn’t a lot for a 30 year old but it’s enough to finance a somewhat decent sports car.

            If you’re an EU citizen why are you not going to where the money is? It’s not in Bulgaria. Still, there have to be engineering careers in Bulgaria that pay better than $13k.

            It’s practically impossible for Bulgarians to migrate to the U.S. for anything other than a PhD, which will leave him broker than before. He has to stay in the EU and go to Germany, France, or Italy or figure out a way to make money in Turkey or China or something.

            Frankly, Engineers are moronic. They have all the tools they need to start their companies and get rich and yet they never do it because they’re too risk averse.

            - often engineering degree is a social lift from an even poorer strata so they lack money and connections as well

    i thought you slants were supposed to be good at math and logic? (esp w/ a master's in engineering, wtf?)
    Bid your time and find a 1-2 year old m2 with a single owner and ~20k miles.
    At 20k miles the manufacturing defect issues that would have cropped up, likely have -- and the car still has most of it's useful, worry free life left. Compare that to the crapshoot of buying a brand new car..

    And let's not even talk about the depreciation.

        i hear ya, 2011 E88 pushing 100k miles here as my DD. I plan on driving her until the wheels fall off.
        the n55 is actually a pretty easy to work on, solid engine -- provided it's well maintained. The only downside is the car has a DCT vs a manual. Can't help but think it's a ticking time bomb.
        But looking at the direction the car market is going, it's frightening. Shitty little 4 cylinders with turbos that are basically guaranteed to fail at around 100k miles, failure prone electronics. Impossible to fix, plastic body work that roughly totals the car from minor fender benders. yuck!
        Letting politicians dictate emissions and efficiency standards to engineers is a gigantic mistake. New cars made today will absolutely not last nearly as long as their predecessors. All for saving just a teensy bit of gas mileage (irrespective of the energy and pollution caused by building disposable cars...)

        Christ, last night i replaced the rear diff gasket and fluid on my 1998 f150 with 337k miles. Inside the diff, it was absolutely immaculate, the gears had ZERO wear. compare that to a modern ford?
