I know the feeling about the first "real" car, come to your senses, it is time to face reality, sad but true.
Don't get into a car that costs $1800 a year just to maintain properly if driven 15,000 miles, it is very easy to want to drive more than this per year in the 750's, check out the maintenance schedule, think about tires, gas, oil changes, filters, coolant and brake fluid flushes and refills, washing, care, and general items that need replacing, and your experience repairing a very advanced car for the first time. A newer car with cheaper costs, including insurance premiums. will allow more freedom for school and a social life to get the great paying job so you can have a new one or the money to really gear up the car of your dreams. Just some cheap advice, take it or leave it.
think long term you'll be glad you did.
