Investment too bothersome. Why spend all that time trying to figure out what to invest in (and taking a risk/gamble) when you can be outside driving the "ultimate driving machine" ? :)
I see all these people playing with ways to make a few bucks here and there by investing in this, borrowing from that etc. too much of a hassle for me. For some people it's okay I guess. to me, time is money.
I rather spend the time with my family and friends, enjoying life. If I have enough money for food and shelter, then that's good enough. any excess can go towards the play thing. :)
no SPAM please! Just my view on life that's all :)
: : $33,000 if you can come up with that much
: : : What's a good down payment on a $33,000 323i?
: : : What is everyone putting down on theirs???
: I'm curious. When interest rates are low and stock prices are soaring, what's the logic for using as much of your own money as possible for a downpayment? Why not borrow as much as possible and use your own money to invest?
