    Tanys, I think you'd be easier asking how many people didn't fianance their car in some way /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I've only ever owned 1 car. Eeeek!

    Still, the main thing is to make sure it's worth more trade price than what you owe on it, so your not in a negative equity situation.

    I borrowed money against the equity in my flat to get my S3. Dont regret doing it, as I was fed up driving a Corsa, but i'm sure the loan will outlive the car /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Saved for 2 years and bought my A3TQ outright /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Great feeling when you drive off the lot knowing it's 100% yours /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Had a company car for the last 3.5 years, but just decided to come out of the scheme. As I didn't have £20,000 sitting around for the new A3 I borrowed it off Direct Line.

    Drill you saved for 2 years!...you are getting paid far too much to sit on your arse surfing the web all day every day!

    Had to get a loan, as I still have my BMW sat in the garge in the UK, and until my dad decides if he wants it or not there's no money to be made + I have no idea how to save money!

    Actually, I was Active Duty still, so I paid no rent, nor Utilities, so I was able to kick back a grand a month, of course I DID make some sacrifices, only 1 case of beer a week, etc, etc. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
