Smile Finally paid off my student loan:-)

Its taken just over 6 years....but finally paid the bugger off today..No idea how much I actually paid off in total but probably around the 20K mark, its amazing how much debt I build up in uni without even realising...especially a pint at the union only use to cost 80p

Got to feel sorry for people starting this year...cannot imaging leaving uni with a 50k debt

Playing devil's advocate here (so no offence meant), but you're in this much debt and yet you drive an E92 335i....??

When I left Uni many years ago I worried about my 3K debt! 29K is a hell of a figure...yet you run a 335i...


Edit...1 AKY posted similar as I was typing BTW...not having a go, just puzzled.

umm its a really long story, i wrote off my 206 xsi and didnt have a car for around 1 year and a half as my father didn't want me to buy a crappy car so i was expecting a mini Cooper S first, then somehow i talk my father to buy the current car as we were sharing cars (an e240 which eats petrol like no tommorow) for the past year and a half , and during of which i had part time job so i saved a little, dad invested the insurance money and gain a little extra and as business was ok he contributed alot to the 335i and i contributed a little. So now i pay for petrol and maintence cost and half of the insurance as he uses the car too but we all know he bought it for me but the car is in his name so insurance is cheaper to cover me as named driver.

regarding the debt, i never thought about it before really until suddenly you get that moment and to stop and think about current life. Afterall its taken out of salary each month so i guess it be ok hopefully...i know its not much of a plan but i am those type of people would do anything to live the moment and regret later~~
