    Hey OP how much did you pay for the car? I have family members and lots of neighbours (who are rich) who buy their cars brand new off the lot cash. have no idea how theyre able to do this.

    Simple, they have enough money to pay the cost of the car on the spot.

    I got it down to 21k, and after fees and 2.9% interest (about 5 years from now), around 27k. It was less than a similar 2008 coupe, and I need the credit.

    Holy crap! Thats a lot of cash.

    I did a lot of upgrades on my car, i spent just over $8900. And even that is alot for me to pay off.

    That's a lot to spend on a car, I hope you plan on keeping it for a while.
    I stopped at $1400 on my old Camry, it just wasn't worth putting more into an almost 19 year old car.

    Granted, I'll probably end up blowing a ton of money on my new car if I can keep it forever. ;D

    My current xenon headlights are fine.
    I'm going to get it waxed this weekend, that's all that really needs to be done. Rock deflectors look like crap and probably cause more damage than they prevent. It's like putting plastic on your furniture - what's the point if you can't enjoy it?
