As some have pointed out, there would have to be some sort of event allowing for such a lifestyle change. Maybe being made sr. vp, partner, dunno, even getting an extra 100k bonus this Dec. wouldn't do it for me. It's not just the cost of the car, but the ongoing cost and maintenance. A 6 or 7 is solidly into the $1+ per mile for operating costs. The 335 is already more than 40 cents more per mile than an Accord. Sometimes it's good to be satisfied with what one has imho....
