    Damn! FN Congrats man!! Marked NOTABLE for accomplishing a big goal!

    I owned my first Lambo for a couple of years and the NET loss on the buy to sell was only like $8,000. Of course there is maintenance and stuff, but damn, sometimes you have to look at these things from start to finish... not what it costs initially.

    Amazing!!! Congratulations!!

    You have a great outlook and it sounds like you're genuinely an all round great person! :)

    If I get to where you are in 9 years time I'd be a happy man! (Heck I'd be happy if I get there in 30 years! Ha!) :)

    Thank you all so much for the kind words and some laughs! You guys are the best :)

    @Envision I knew it was the right time when the monthly payment wouldn't alter my investment ability at all. It is also the right time knowing that I could own it for 1-2 years and still likely break even when selling it (aside from any maintenance/interest pmt).

    @MJ DeMarco - So true, MJ! Just like in real estate (or business acquisition)... with used cars - you "make your money" (or protect your downside) when you buy; not when you sell!

    Thank you for the NOTABLE nod my friend!

    @Fox Thanks buddy, hope everything is well with you =)

    I was just having one of those less good days, came to the forum, opened this thread and I swear it gave me a kick of "motivation" and immediately put me to work on a few things. Only after finishing those tasks I came here to finish to read the post and leave this comment.

    Wishing you all the best so you can keep killing it ;)

    Fellow 6 speed G owner (2007 G Spyder). Fantastic car if I must say so. You won't lose much on depreciation. They're pretty much bottomed out and the 6 speeds are very very hard to find. Exotics always go through a U shaped depreciation curve - they bottom out then trend up.

    As far as exotics go, you've bought one that will depreciate less than a midrange BMW or Mercedes which is a pretty smart move.

    This one sentence fully encapsulates your previous quote that "success is not a destination."

    Not altering your ability to make investments shows you're still hungry, still moving forward, still making moves.

    Great job and congrats @G_Alexander

    Exactly!!

    Well done and a very, very, very inspirational post especially for those who've yet to see or touch their end goal - yet!
    :clap::


    Wonder what your next post will be in 8.5years????

    Yes I know this arrival was 9.5years but why wait another 9.5years to tick off another accomplishment?

    Better still, come back with another goal/target accomplished new thread update that was even quicker to achieve in terms of years very, very soon!


    Not forgetting the females here too!
    ;)

    Congrats on the accomplishment. That is a pretty sweet looking car. My 10 year old daughter keeps talking about Lambos. I'm going to show her this thread and story tomorrow.

    Say in the voice of a pathetic Slowlaner...

    Dude, but if you put that in an index fund that makes 8% a year, you''ll be throwing away $62,000 by the time you're 80! Bad move! Wait until you're 80!

    Congrats, you've definitely put in the hours!

    Looking forward to reading your old progress threads,it looks like we might have a lot in common. (Stayed in corporate finance long enough to get my CFA and CMA.)
