Great news! We got approved for a mortgage today! This means my dream of getting a new car sooner, which was almost dashed last week, is back on! Turns out being a full time student counts as job history. I thought we were not going to qualify and I would have to wait until after we had rented for a year to reapply then take on the debt. While talking to my insurance guy about getting our 2 current cars covered I asked about the cars I’m looking at. He said that the WRX and BRZ are both in the “high performance” sector and will cost me about $100 a month to insure on top of my LS and the wife’s RX. He then told me to get a Miata because they are cheap to insure... the answer is always Miata. So basically I was told to get a 2 door convertible by my insurance guy because its half of the cost to insure a car that’s just as fast(BRZ) but a hard top. Darn kids always wrecking Toyobaru twin cars...
