an expenive car would more than likely make the impression that you are in this for the money rather than you care for your people. if you really want one of those cars watch the used car lots but i doubt you could find one in your price range as you don't really want a high car payment. a good basic car that runs well is what you really need. remember having things can be a goal but it isn't the be all and end all. i would really like to have a jaguar but i know it will never happen.
