I owned a 10 year old mk4 with 120k miles at some point. That thing was janky enough to keep me away from every older car forever. I love seeing cool old stuff at car shows or driving down the road, but it doesn't inspire me to get my own at all, I have no interest. The RS3 might be a hard one to give up though. Maybe when I'm 55 I'll have a 20 year old RS3 with a cheaper newer car to daily.
I was in the 780s when I got my RS3, but now it's like 740 after the purchase. I think I want to get it over 750 before I refinance.When I got my Honda Accord the sales guy was like... "ok, well we don't see these scores very often you can pretty much get whatever you want"
