Although I was fascinated by sports cars since a young age, I’ve been thinking differently these days. I thought as long as its wheels go around and it will take me from one destination to another with no problems, the car is good enough. I was simply satisfied with my Honda Civic.
Maybe I wanted to stay humble and be like my dad, who never drove a foreign car and only drove Korean cars so that his clients would not be intimidated.
However, there has been a eureka moment that shattered my thoughts.
Recently, I had a chance to ride in my friend’s Audi A4. I was simply fascinated by all its features, how smooth the ride was, and how much horsepower and torque it has. The car had features that I did not imagine was possible.
I remember thinking to myself “forget being humble, I want a better car”.
Even then, after couple days have passed, I had forgotten all about it. I was back to my usual self, thinking that by 2021, I want to 1) pay off my OSAP debts and 2) save up enough money to purchase a luxurious car, but purchase a humble car. I wanted to invest or save the money for something more valuable, rather than purchasing something that will only deteriorate in value.
Then, I got to ride in the same friend’s brand new car: Audi S4.
It was even better than an A4. It had even more power, even more comfortable, and had even more features. The ride was more exciting. The engine… if the engine sound while stationary was like the purring of a cat, the sound it made while accelerating was like the roar of a tiger.
Driving back home in my lovely yet simple Civic, I kept thinking about how nice that car was and how elementary my car is in comparison.
This time, I could not keep myself humble. I could not tell myself to wait until I have plenty of surplus income to enjoy life before purchasing a luxury car. I simple wanted one. As soon as possible.
The moment I got home, I powered up my computer, went to Audi webpage, and configured an Audi to get an estimate.
Below is my next car goal/wants. Although I could afford to lease it for 48 months, I would not do that. My car is still relatively new and I still have my OSAP payments to make. However, as soon as my car mileage hits 100,000 km or as soon as I pay off my student loans, whichever comes faster, I will be purchasing it.
The latest model of course.
