Payed it off early by that time I was still making pretty good money and had alot of saving and free income. So I caught the bus to the dealership (even thought I still had my Mazda) got off the bus right in front of the dealer talked to the same sales man who treated me like shit. He told me when I got on the lot I must have good credit or a cosigner to be back on the lot a laughed. I said no, test drove a 2011 335i coupe loaded (with said salesman) after the test drive I said I'll take it, he said let's try to get you financed and chuckled, I said no, "I'll be paying straight cash". He didn't believe me, or even noticed the draw string backpack I had with me so i opened it and he became the best salesman ever but it was to late, to teach him a lesson at the last minute I got another salesman who had just started there and said I'll take the silver 2011 335i coupe over there. The asshole salesman looked as me and the manager counted the money in astonishment. Didn't even needed the car detailed because it just had came off of the truck, it still had the plastic on the seats. So I got my BMW by working hard, staying focused, shitting on an asshole salesman along the way
and 5000 off sticker and free CPO WARRANTY
Good for you
I get treated like crap by salesmen all the time because I am a girl with tattoos, and I guess I don't "look like" someone who "should be" driving a "nice" car. Even though I make more than they do, they think it's OK to judge people who don't look like they work on Wall St. Screw 'em.
As far as how I afford my car...Um, I have a job. I found the one I wanted, called my credit union, traded my car in for it and drove it home.
I bought a used 335 with remaining warranty and low miles instead of the new one I considered getting first. I have a good interest rate with a low monthly payment and I pocket the savings (who am I kidding...I use them for mods and a trust fund for when my car is out of warranty lol)
