A very dear friend family of ours, has been bugged by his boss to change his car as his boss commented that his car did not live up to his standard of as a branch manager,(he is driving a Waja now), he is single. This dear friend of ours would always ask me and my lovely wife for advice when he needs to make some crucial decisions.
Finally, he decided to buy a Nissan Shelfy which cost about (RM110k), he is a done deal now but now it is his turn to talk us into buying a new car as well, and my lovely wife has been kind of influenced to toll the line into changing a new car.
Over the weekend, i was kind of not so happy about the issue of changing a new car, I told my wife we should not indulge in impulse purchase, currently our two cars need no installments.
I knew my wife was kind of dissappointed with my decision but i really dont think there is a need for a new car yet. I really hope she is ok with it.
Q) Have you ever made a "spur of the moment" purchase that is of BIG ITEM , like car, house ?
Q) Do you really think people can look down on you, if your car doesn't reflect your status?
P/S : I still believe in simplicity.
