I see alot of people in here who are young (1980 and up). I was wondering how they can afford a Luxery car anyway. Did Mommy & Daddy buy it for you?

I think it depends. An older model P10 can be found for very little money, even the later model P10's are now under 10K. (too bad it wasn't like that when I bought mine).:-\

i got mine for $8500. i will admit, my dad did pay for the car in cash when we got it but i'm paying $250 a month on it until its all paid off. its like taking a loan out but without the interest.

True. I paid $8k for my 95 G. 90k miles, leather, sunroof, auto, cd player. The sad thing about Inifinitis is that they are just as good, if not better, than Lexus or Acura but they depreciation far more for some mysterious reason. :*( Hopefully things will change, but I personally would never buy a brand new Infiniti because of that reason. Wait a couple of years and see how much the new Q45 and G35 drop in value. :-\

cold hard cash!!!

HELL NO, its all on my own - hard earned cash put 2 use for soothing my G20t need - done all by myself - thank you very much!!!

BTW - The Primera in England is considered quite an 'affordable' car, you can pick up the 96-99 (P11 shape) used for about 4,000 pounds - I don't believe it is considered as luxury as the Inifiniti G20t is here in N.America.

Yeah, that's true. For some reason it can't be a luxury car if it's japanese. Lexus is the only thing that comes close but people over here are too snobbish. What I don't get it how beemers are still considered exclusive. I see more BMWs than I see primeras. Except the other day. 4 P11s and a P10 in the same petrol station at the same time. Weird. (Mine was the only GT though hehe)

Yeah, I bought my P10 cheap. $2200 for an auto G20 with 114K on its motor. After runnin' out its rods after a month, a $2000 swap *40K miles on used motor* brings up the total to $4200. Still cheap. :p

That's about what I paid for my '93 manual with 96K miles. It was a great deal for only $4000 even. I didn't pay for it at all, my insurace company did. And I gained 4 grand in the process as my old car was worth 8500. I unfortunately had to pay my father the the extra money as he bought my last car. I was so looking forward to spending that money on a det swap. Maybe later.

99 g20 pearl white i think i was 18 when i bought it or about to be i can't remember.. I'm 21 now.
Paid it off this year thank god! I traded in my 90 bmw 525i and they gave 5000 for it this was in 98 . That brought me down to 19000 - 3000 down financed at 16000 at 7.5% fixed apr for 36 months purchase wich comes out to about 18 something after financing.

It doesn't have to be parents that payed for people just because they are young..! To those that did get it from parents don't beleive what noone tells you you are not less cool just because you didn't pay for it.. enjoy that priveledge as long as you can.. you are no better or less of a man then the other if you or your parents or girlfriend or etc.. pay for your mods/car...


to answer the original post well it doesn't seem to me as so much of a luxury car compared to whats out there its more like a little step up above regular sport compact car but i wouldn't go as far as to say luxury car the options aren't really that spectacular

sunroof-lsd-leather-ac- all these are pretty much coming stock on most cars
but i still love my car luxury or not!

Luxery car? luxury car? what? what does it matter who bought it? a g20 is not a very expensive car. there are minivans that cost more. if this were a ferrari or porsche forum i could see your point, but what does it matter if someone who is less than 22 had help in purchasing their sub $25k car?

my dad is loaning me the money for my car and I have paid off some and have full intention of paying him the rest

it aint that much anyways only 7000 $ canadian for everything-car-tax-insurance I found my G20 for 5300 $ can. the car is mint except for the drivers seat which is ripped, the guy said it had 123kms on it then I found an oil change sticker on the door saying that it had 187 kms in 97-I think my car has at least 300 kms on it now and Ive only fixed the fuel pump in the 6 mos. Ive had it !

I paid for my car, and the DET swap, and everything else I've done to it. I guess doing your own work saves a lot of money though. I've had the car for about a year, bought it my senior year in high school. Paid it off when i bought it.

Even if mommy or daddy did buy someone their P10 or P11, why would it matter? Some people get new cars for their birthdays, some for their graduation presents. If a parent has the money, then that's their business if they want to buy their child a car, no matter what kind.

I pay for my car and insurance myself. Two words ,.. "porn pays" ;)
