When I read threads like this what first comes to mind is "Waaaa, it costs too much and I can't afford it!"

But maybe that's just me.

At least my state doesn't allow people to buy weapons of war and carry them around in flagrante delicto. Ditto high capacity magazines, which are prohibited altogether.

Better to live in a socialist paradise than to live in American Somalia. But my neighbors seem to be doing OK. Everyday a couple of new Roller cabriolets go by, along with dozens of Lambos, Ferraris and the like. As for me, well I'm just a poor, dumb country lawyer.

i pay a 1000 a month for my i8 so for me it a great value for the money. Nobody should be paying MSRP for a roadster its gonna be discounted 30-40k within 6 months.

Maybe... But if you think it costs "too much", then that's just because you STILL don't have enough money... Once you have "enough" money, the cost will be in proper perspective.

You just need MORE money!

it's ok MalibuBimmer i life in naples one of the wealthiest towns in the country. a rolls or ferrari is the norm. keep allowing your state to refuge illegals & have your mayor notifying aliens when ICE comes to get them. you'll soon be Annexed from the USA so enjoy your own country soon. oh, & weapons of war? you sure are funny. we are talking about semi autos not fully automatic LMG's that spray 1000's of rounds per minute. have fun in your sanctuary city knowing you can have an illegal break into your depreciated i8 at night. must be a great feeling (:

evanavery by the way what car you drive doesn't dictate how much money you have. warren buffet drives a regular cadillac, or, is he not richer than you too because you think you are so great because you bought a 5 year old car that can be had for $75k without a roof replaced with a canvas tent & paid $165,000, so now you think you are so great. here in naples pool boys drive 911 Turbo's. don't let what car you drive dictate your wealth. because i don't spend all my money on a nice car to just have it sit in traffic? good try, but let me tell you, you guys are the most complaining, arrogant, prideful men i've ever seen who think you are among the elite because you drive an i8. get over yourselves. go to the mclaren forums, guys who are running around with $10,000,000 of cars in their garages are 10x more humble than most people on this forum. they want to help you over there & want you to make the best decision when it comes to mclarens or any car for that matter. here, everyone cries & you have to bring your salty political opinions into a basic convo on cars. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN TILL 2024!!!!!

And none of those cars, in my opinion, look better than the i8. So why not 160k?
