Ok, I'm having a mental problem. I have a'17 R that's paid for and only has about 9900 miles and garage kept. It's the primary car. I bought it new and purchased extended warranty when I got it. I'm disabled, and my wife works from home. I also have a Nissan Frontier that's also paid for. My wife doesn't drive so both the R and truck are moreso mine and not hers. She kinda let's me make the decisions when it comes to our cars. She likes the R. She even suggested we buy it back when we were looking at getting a new car. I used to own a '08 R32 so based off that, that's why she suggested another R.
Here's my issue. I still love my R. I'm 39, my wife is 37. Still relatively young. No kids, and we're not having kids. Recently something in my mind has had me thinking more luxury over straight sportiness. I also recently got a loaner '16 Touareg TDI Sport (they gave me a choice of a Touareg or Atlas...of course I picked the Touareg) when I had the Golf in for a repair. That Touareg was freakin nice. And torque from that diesel was fun. Also, for a midsize SUV it handled great imo. I really liked it. My wife also liked that more luxury feel in it. So it got me thinking about maybe trading the R for something else like a Touareg or Cayenne, or even a a used Audi or AMG of some sort. I'm generally anti-suv. But as I said, that Touareg was nice. I like and want power. Something in the 25-30k price range so I could make an even trade possible. As I already said, I love the R. I've always preferred sporty over anything else. Also, European or Asian, no american cars. I also would prefer AWD over front or rear drive. But I would settle for rear if needed. Am I getting old mentally and wanting luxury and my mind is changing maybe? I dunno it's weird. I mean geez, I still have subwoofers/systems in both the R and my truck. I know financially, the "smart" thing to do would be keep what I have since it's paid for
What do I do? Maybe I'm just crazy...I dunno.
