I agree with what several people here have pointed out....cars like this are play toys. If you can't afford to by them outright, you shouldn't be buying them. This doesn't mean that you shouldn't lease or finance, since money is so cheap right now and you could do better to invest the cash, however, you shouldn't need to finance it.

Beyond this, these types of purchases are highly emotional and as such there is little logic and reason as to why you should pick one over the other. I prefer the Vantage. It is simply stunning from every angle both inside and out, sounds incredible, has enough useable performance, and can be had with a manual gearbox. The last point is big for me. Now that I have owned both a dual clutch and proper manual, as a playtoy, there is just no comparision for me. The manual is far more fun.

Some of you guys are amazing to afford $1500+/mo payment on vehicles.
Every time, I go to dealership, sales people gets confused that I can afford to buy it cash, but not 400/mo payment.

When I got the M3, I decide to just finance about 15k. The rate was cheap, and I needed to get the credit score up. My score is darn low, because I only have 1 credit card limit of 1700ish.

Going back to upgrade, I would buy a supercar which has manuf requires low maintenance. (maybe I am dreaming)

I am not sure I understand what you are saying. My point is that with interest rates so low, you can finance, then invest the cash and make good money as opposed to paying cash for your car.

What I was saying is that my cash flow is not steady. So, I can usually comfortable paying cash or finance a little.
I agree. If the rate of return is higher than rate of loan, it is good to get the vehicle or anything financed (as long as they can pay it off within x amount of time).
