That looks like a very nice example at a very decent sticker price for the mileage and model.

Congrats.

I also think its very sad as once you move on there's no where to go!

That's what happened to me, hence why I kept coming back and bought 4.

It's not terrible, just unfortunate, especially with many years if driving ahead if you.

Buying one now would be the automotive equivalent of premature ejaculation. You're going to peak too soon.

lol, very amusing analogy

Plenty of space to go on imo if you have the bucks.... 911 GT3RS, Lambo Aventador, R8 V10 GT, Fezza 599, Zonda, Enzo... the list goes on!

Depends what you mean by on.

With all the money in the world on that list I'd only buy two cars and I do t think they'd be anything other sideways steps.

RS6 as a daily and for towing... actually I think my list would go on... and on...

Lucky you mate, a GTR at 25. Whats your secret?

Not difficult. Coming out of Uni at 24-25 let's say Locum Dentist for example £100k pa. Easily affordable with that wage

If its on the original Dunlops, it's going to need some new ones real soon. If they're not the original Dunlops, make sure you're happy with why. Have a look at the brake discs for a ridge around the edge. Only 9k miles, left standing for long periods is no good for exposed metal, especially with high metal content brake pads.

Mine is the same age as that one, and I've done 14k miles using it every day. I had new tyres at 11k miles, and the brakes have another 14k miles in them, at least. I don't hang about, but am more mechanically sympathetic than most.

Other than that, enjoy your new rocket. You can't go back now. Anything else you drive will be lacking in some respect.

I didn't go to uni, worked hard and bought my first house at 23.
Maybe I should have bought a GT-R then instead of waiting until I was 37. Too damn sensible!

Good luck to those younger members that are in a position to do it without selling thier souls to the god of finance for the next 5 years with a hefty balloon.

Decent deposit, 500 a month for the next 5 years, aint a bad way to do it
(just an example).
2-3k insurance a year at 25?? Same again for servicing?

Then theres modifying it :-)

Good way to spend dosh at 25 if you haven't a house or babies.
