I talked my dad off the ledge with this logic as the house is perfect for their needs, he has the money, and I don't think they'll be moving ever again. So in that sense, he paid more than he should have, but it was "worth" it to them in the moment (and again, he doesn't plan to move again before he dies).

Congrats on the car. Unless it doesn't meet your needs long term and you have to get rid of it, there is really no overpaying. Just paying a premium for what you want.
Thanks man, well said! Thats exactly how I feel about.
