What You Drive

My old roommate’s brother has been talking about getting a new car.  We were hanging out at his place the other day and he mentioned that he was looking to trade his car in and leap into something new.  He was describing it like he already had everything worked out and he knew how much he was going to get for his 5 year old Hyundai and he was going to lease his next car rather than buy because he said he didn’t want to keep the car for more than a few years and he didn’t want to have to sell it after it lost value and I guess by doing it that way he would pay what he thinks is a fair value.  I don’t know.  I have never done anything other than buy a car.  As he was telling us this, his brother asked him what kind of car he wanted and he said he was trying to decide between a Lexus and a Mercedes, but he was thinking he was going to look at this deal on a c-class Mercedes at the local luxury car dealer.  I knew which one he was talking about but I’ve never actually been there since I don’t drive that kind of car.  He said the Mercedes C Class lease was the one he was probably going to get but he wanted to see what the deals on the other cars were like first.  So I guess that’s what he’s going to do next week.  He seemed quite enthusiastic about this whole thing so he’s probably going to try and find the best deal.  I’m like that, too.  Whenever there is something I’ thinking about buying I’ll try to find the best price I can find on it.  I’ll look at all the normal websites and see who has it for the lowest price, including shipping, of course.  I know that a lot of people do that but there are some people who just go buy whatever they want.  I guess you can do whatever you want.

I don’t know how much money I would be spending if I didn’t have a way to check prices online, though.  I mean I probably wouldn’t buy as much stuff because I’d be paying more for other stuff.  So it’s cool when I can find good prices on stuff and can get them without paying the full price.  I think everyone thinks that way, though, so prices tend to reflect what the stores think they can sell it for and still have people buy.
