Buyer's Remorse

So I gave my friend a ride today to pick up his new car from the dealership (Mercedes CLK350 Coupe) and why I was there I was looking at the new C-Class sports and I must say DAMN! I priced one out and it would be about 2k more than what I bought the Altima Coupe for. I test drove it and loved it. Dont get me wrong nothing wrong with the altima but I like the mercedes a tad bit more. Lifes a bitch lol.

Dayum, had no idea they were priced in that range... I know they've been advertising the heck out of them, and looks to be a great car. Huh....

(still, yes, your maintenance, etc... would make the overall cost of ownership MUCH higher than the Nissan )

I saw these advertised and wondered about the pricing.

My boss has a new CL63 AMG (yea I know...not the same thing) and I drove it and loved it !! This was until I saw the price...$140K +.

the Altima is an awesome car, has good power, rides smooth, and is pretty luxurious. I have found out though that paying for the GPS console was kind of a waste of money as I never really need directions to anywhere. It also makes me want to speed a lot (reminds me of being on a bike) lovin it so far if you are thinking about getting one I highly recommend it.

Porsches really don't appeal to me. Not saying I wouldn't drive one but it wouldnt be at the top of my list of cars to buy if I win the lottery.

Well no but you set a price. If I had the coin I'd get an F430.

I've only had the Altima for a few months, wouldn't be worth it, I would probably take a hit in trade in value/resell value so hard my balls would explode. Had the C-class be available when I bought the Altima I would have gotten it instead no question.
