I hope he's not your financial advisor :eek:
Jes kidding, I know interest can eat you up. That's the beauty of buying used and paying cash. Leaves more money for those addictive upgrades :D

Or he financed it for 72 months like my idiot nephew did with his Ford Focus.
I looked at his finance papers and shook my head at a $34,000 tin box which probably won't last to the final payment.
This is what happens when they don't ask for advice.

,,just messing with you about the miles ,, as long as there quality miles and every one counts , thats all that matters , i think the most i ever put on a sportbike in one year with only foothills and trackdays was 26,000 miles ,,,, that was a fun year :) now im lucky to get 200 miles a weekend :(
