MOT $585 plus the time wasted each year getting it done.
The cost of this service is under 2k. Which in my view, a great deal and saves a lot of time. Essentially I am only paying an extra 400-500 to save me a lot of time and annoyance.
But of course, newer car would mitigate this extra work and cost.
I really feel a car reflects the life stages of a person. Back in Highschool and Uni was always ricey / sports cars. Now I am into practicality and reliability. I dont even even speed anymore. I drive like a granny because I dont want to fund the police force anymore (lots of speeding and parking tickets before).
Same! though I preferred the Honda S2000....but in the UK there was no way I could afford the insurance for either....so i had a little Ford Ka that came with 1 year free insurance! hahahah
Miata was already a stretch when I was a kid. So s2k was not even a consideration haha. I definitely prefer an s2k.
@Coolboy having 2 cars in HK is the same as burning money. I had a motorcycle and car before. I had to get rid of the bike because it was just sitting there rusting up. It was a nuissance to upkeep haha. Like I said, my life stage needs practicality and reliability :P
I think when I hit the mid life crisis, I can get an s2k lol
lol....when I hit my mid-life crisis moment, i got a mini-van :-)
