I'm 29 at the moment and have stretched myself to get one, when really I should've probably used the money to move to a bigger house!

Its a personal prioritisation choice I guess... Being sensible vs "You only live once"

I'm 32 and this is my first R35.
Had a few nice cars in the past at a younger age, but ultimately lost money on them so decided to be more sensible with future car purchases.

Currently 33, 32 when I bought mine.

Would love to know what some of the "younger" members are paying, insurance wise :runaway:

I have a mortgage and didnt even hesitate after I drove it.... :chairshot

How?

I pay more than that, with 6 years NCB... I must be in one S****Y postcode!!

I think it's got to do with postcode,where it's parked and how many miles you do.
Definitely.... Im in a small villiage, but my postcode puts me in a big town (not a very nice one either).

I'm in Milton Keynes and in one of the better areas which helps.
I will moving next year, so hopefully that will help :)

Exactly my thinking when I got mine. I thought I was young getting one at 29 but it seems to be the norm on this forum!

Just turned 25, have a small mortgage and raised with nothing in the slums of Wolverhampton. I worked out it's a lot cheaper to buy a second car and use that as a daily driver... however that just wouldn't be any fun would it! Shame I've not had my car since 22nd November.. gearbox replacement!

Will never forget my first car, a N reg fiat punto that my dad won in a bet at the pub from a guy called Paddy.. you can't make this stuff up! I'm sure it was as quick as the GT-R, or atleast I thought it was the way I drove it!

30 with 2 kids and a Gtr(also have a 535d for family car). In hindsight I should have got the gtr prioR to kids as would have driven it more but still love it when I get the chance.
