    I drove one last week and I fell in love :hsd: I'm looking at getting a used one in the low $20k's. I Just got my first job out of college, I'll be starting in mid-May making $47k with a $3k signing bonus. I have no student loans, but Ill have to finance most of it. Smart move?

    Is it a smart move to buy a car that exceeds your basic needs for transportation? Never.

    But that's faggot logic anyway.

    I just finished college and bought a new TL, came out to ~35k. And I make pretty much the exact same you are making. My advise would be pay off all debt, if you have any except the car, before you move out. So you just have the car and new home to pay for. Almost done paying my CCs off here.

    Whats the lowest you guys have seen New 2006 GTO's selling for? I got a quote on one for $25.5k. It might almost be worth spending a little bit extra for the factory warrenty.

    The only debt I have is a $3k student loan that I have money to pay off on right now, and a CC that I pay off everymonth. The dealership was offering no payments for 90 days and I almost bought it.
