    The scale is a bit skewed isnt it?

    40k+ is not ridiculous money. In my industry 40K is about average.

    Under &#163;40k where I am is ridiculous! I'm on over that and I drive a old S3...

    I'm baffled by the amount of people driving s3's but not earning shed loads. How's that? Do you live in a squat to save the cash to go on the car? Never go out? Do runners at the petrol station while your mate pulls faces at the attendant to distract him?

    My excuse is being a Mechanic/MOT tester i do all the servicing/maintenance myself so no labour costs and i get all parts at trade price

    If i worked in another trade earning the same money i'd have the sell the S3 but as things are i'll keep it, and its probably one of the best looked after S3's around

    They dont seem that pricey to run do they...? Only a vag 1.8T underneath..?

    Servicing and parts seem ok, modding them aint cheap, breaking them is nto cheap but surely in normal runningits one service a year, say &#163;450, and fuel? Not too bad on the fuel either IMO, better than a 1.8T golf wiht a k03 on it!

    Running costs seem ok to me but i only do 5000ish miles a year

    Insurance 500 - Road tax 210 - 28-32MPG

    Can't really comment on servicing prices as i do it all myself, better job at less than half the price

    The S3 is hardly what i'd class as an expensive car, both in terms of purchasing price and running costs.

    Don't consider the S3 to be too excessive to run wise. only ever buy performance cars that are around 4-5 yrs old as I don't like the idea of massive depreciation. That way I can keep them for 3 years and maybe lose between 2-3k. Much as I love cars,I put my money into property mostly and my wife's shoe and bag collection (obsession).

    Doing OK (in the ridiculous bracket) but hey it's all relative. What's next? How big is your mortgage?!!!!

    It's because of my mortgage I'm weighing up selling my S3. I'm in the 30-40 bracket, but I'd like to put some money into my house now I've moved in. My car's in fantastic shape, and has a really low mileage, so I'm concerned that if I sell up I won't be able to find one in a similar condition when I come to buy another one. I'm fairly sure I'd return to the S3 as soon as I could afford one!!

    I run an S3, it cost me 9k and we all know the running costs, I earn 60K+(Im in sales so it fluctuates) so theorectically I could drive a more flash car, I just choose not too - I could run an S3 if I was earning 20k a year and I used to run more expensive cars on much smaller salaries - I guess your priorities in life change though and you spend your money in different ways. Im quite happy with what I deam a cheep car right now!

    I'm essentially a housedad at the moment, but Rachel is in the 30-40K bracket.

    We have a large mortgage and two boys though,..........................and I could make a good few guesses on here as to the ones that still live at home LOL

    I guess your work choice and lifestyle have a big impact...
    I earn a bloody good wage...but only live at home for 2 weeks out of the month, so for the other 2 weeks, I spend nothing. Not a penny..room cleaned, clothing washed, food provided.
    The company send a taxi for me, then I go by plane/helicopter..and the same on the return leg, so no commuting costs either.

    So basically, bar my mortgage (large by NE Scotland standards, but low by other parts of the UK and low compared to the house value) all I have to spend my cash on is cars, or going out etc...but again, only being home for 2 weeks limits the nights out.

    Hence 3 cars, 4/5 bedroom house etc...
    You earn it, you spend it...

    I'm not complaining...
