Because it "feels good" to sit in a car that nobody else's ass has ever been in......... all decisions are not money based for me.. sometimes it just feels good to splurge...... Not sure about you guys but I don't think I will be passing through this way AGAIN ! (earth that is)
I agree with the above poster. For those that can afford it, being able to spec the car exactly the way you want it, get to know it whilst you help it loosen the engine during the first few miles, the fact that you get a full warranty … all sorts of positives.
I had to get my GS second hand as the wife wouldn't let me buy a new car (nor I could have got it new anyway as I only got it last September) but I'd be happy to buy a new car when chance presents itself.
