QUESTION: Those who have bought their own car without having your parents help with the car or school: what did you get and how much was it? I want to buy a new wrx, but not sure if it's too much for a student.

  1. 2006 Mazda. Bought it just over 5 years ago. $14,000.
    Still going strong!

  2. If you're not getting help from your parents, a new WRX is a really bad idea. You should definitely be buying used. Aim for less than $7000. You can get a really decent car for that. I personally spent 3 grand on my truck.

    On the other hand you could just lease a vehicle, because if you're buying new it will depreciate like crazy. Buy what appreciates and lease what depreciates.

    1. But I want to do a stage 2 upgrade, probably breaks lease contract. Used would work, but I don't trust people.

  3. You're parents don't help you with school or your vehicle but you can afford a new wrx? You wouldn't happen to know where I can buy some 'medicine', would you? I feel like you might know a good place to get 'a prescription filled' ;) ;). If ya know what I mean. Either that or you're full of shit and just another grown ass dude still sucking on his momma's titty. Probably the latter.

    1. Had amazing co-ops, and would get a loan to buy it. Can't afford it in cash. I could put a 50% down payment, and the rest would have to be on loan, so i would probably do a 25% dp so I would still have some savings if I need it.

      The most my parents have helped was moving costs for one co-op. I pay my own rent/bills/tuition/everything

  4. lol why the fuck are you asking us this?
    We don't know what your tuition is, how much school you have left, co-op salary, money in bank etc.

    1. It's definitely possible - I had 30k saved up by first year and co-op helped add to that.
