    Well, you can put a transparent car "bra" on the front of your car if you'd like. It's not noticeable unless you look closely and protects the front of your car from rocks/debris/paint chipping/scratching.

    My dad has always paid for all his cars in one down payment--it helps get the price down a bit as well (particularly if you're good at bartering), since the dealer is receiving all the money up front.

    Those appear to be quite expensive.

    Yup money speaks to car salesmen. If they don't accept your offer just start walking towards the front door..

    Man I'd like to do the HID conversion for my 240SX but the projectors and all the other stuff is $$$$

    Unless I was a multi-millionaire, paying the entire car cash on the spot seems kinda dumb to me. I'd rather finance it for 2 or 3 years with a reasonable interest rate so the financial impact is less, of course if you have lots of money then it's of no concern to you.

    If you can feasibly pay it off in one payment, then why not? The total amount you pay can be significantly less (no interest, and also larger discounts)--two years ago, my dad managed to get a new 2009 Toyota Camry (base, which already isn't an expensive car) for thousands less than the dealer's "lowest" offer largely because he offered to pay it down, the day of.

    And no, he is not a multi-millionaire, although obviously such a move probably wouldn't be realistic for your first new car.

    If you have the money up front, why not? You save hundreds if not thousands over the years you would have kept on making payments. Same concept goes with a mortgage.
