Chris bought a car!!
It all happened really quickly. It made sense for him to get a car since Microsoft has their own parking area and it’s a real pain taking public transport. He was thisclose to getting this hot car with heated leather seats, alloy wheels, and just sexy-looking all over.. but then we figured if he bought it, it’ll basically drain almost all of his savings. He specifically wanted to buy a car straight-out in cash because taking loans from a bank is the worst thing that could ever happen to a human being (unless the loan is for a house, otherwise any other loan or not being able to pay off a credit card is a big NO NO imho!)
So he settled on the Hyundai Getz, which is incredibly cheap so it only bleeds into a bit of his savings. It was a great choice IMHO – and the other car that I was actually contemplating when I bought my Honda Jazz.
It’s a brand new car ‘cos we’re suspcious of second-hand, and we’ve never bought a second-hand car before so we had no idea what to watch out for. Brand new just saves the headache! We got it at around $3,000 less than the asking price, with free window tinting, mats and all the automated/random extras that it comes with. It was a pretty good deal IMHO 🙂 I love the colour, it looks like a bumble bee, hehe.
We’re getting it on Tuesday after work – I’m excited!!
