Congratulations on your pending birthday and baby.

Calling a new car a "toy" and your interest in the financing your purchase would indicate that this is really a discretionary "want" rather than a "need." Limiting your options to 2 door vehicles gives no consideration to putting junior into a child seat.

Major changes in life can be scary. As parenthood and the big 3-0 approaches you might feel burdened, tied down, perhaps seeing the end of a carefree life. A new car could be a way to assert your identity. On the other hand, your spouse might see this as a selfish purchase or possibly an expression of your independence from the family unit. With a baby on the way, what would be the responsible thing to do?

Growing up sometimes sucks.
