      You're right.

      I should buy another cabin for the wife and children, I can stay in mine alone.

      Great idea.

      "FRONT DOOR - OPEN"

      *Bear growls and runs perimeter*

      "BEAR CHECK - COMPLETE"

      BTW, it would be a hooty hoot to actually drive the R8 on the road going to the Cabin, the highway obviously.

      This is a little loop I like to do occasionally. I did it several times, almost died probably half the time, in the 930.

      SOOOO much fun, as you can imagine.

      So do you still have to deal with the F&I guy when it comes in? Still gotta listen to his spiel about buying coverage for blown tires and door dings?

      And who will make the assessment of "normal wear & tear" anyway?! Please tell me it's you.

      Its funny. My buddy who has worked with me for 10 years and is one of my finance guys hit me up right away Although, it was truly to make sure that I get the Tire and Wheel protection. It makes total sense as R8 tires are expensive and our roads suck.

      Psss, I wish. There will be a third party company that looks at it. If I dont buy it out... I keep thinking that with the limited number of these I will have some equity at the end of the lease.... But who knows.

      Definition of this decision: YOLO.

      Same basic reason I'm DDing my cayman right now.. no kids (for the forseeable future), good job, just do it

      Smooremin - please actually get some good use out of it. It'd be a total waste to occasionally drive it 5 blocks to work.
      Track day insurance won't be cheap on that, but it will be worth it to go thrash it around a track once or twice

      Re-Bolded- you get it. We were going to start life but figured another year or two wait will only make it better.

      Its basically gonna be my every(nice)day car. The A6 is going to go her and the A4 should go to my father. If it doesnt, its lease is up in 7 months so it wont be around long.

      I have already looked into go to Autobahn Country Club for a track day, but I am unsure if I really want to do that. I also plan on taking it Minneapolis at least once if not twice. Lastly, if I dont get to drive it as much the first 20 months, and I have some miles built up, I am going to take an extended road trip in it

      On a sportscar/supercar, isn't it routine to run it a gear lower, and shift at the rev limiter? At stoplights rev to 4-5,000rpm?

      Not sure how old you are but there is no shame in having kids later these days. I was 40 when my daughter was born - she is now almost 6.

      I feel like I have way more patience than I would have if I had kids when it was "expected". And financially we were in a much better starting position than we would have been earlier as well. There is nothing cheap about kids, whether it is $1200/mo in daycare, $200/mo in diapers and formula or just keeping up with clothes that get too small in a hurry.

      We are both 30. She isnt done with school until this winter, and she wants to focus on her career for a while. So if we do decide to continue the overpopulation of our rock, its gonna wait for a bit

      When she started Kindergarten last Fall I told the wife I could finally afford that Porsche I have always wanted. Then we started paying for before school care, after school care, and now summer camp.
