      Why didn't you pay out of pocket 2400 to the body shop that estimated that much, the other way round. Instead of taking a quote and asking insurance to pay you the money, and not fix it, just fix it out of pocket 2400, and never report anything to anyone. Clear carfax. Maybe what I say doesn't make sense, because I am not a native speaker and you lost me kind of, but I left with the impression you lost more money on the demolished value, then this 2400 you could pay secretly to fix the car. I agree with everything you said.

    get it how you live it. But for me personally. I have had experience with loans and I find it bullshit and a complete rip-off to conduct business in this way. Because for one. YOU DONT OWN THE CAR. The bank does. Regardless of how much money you spend on it. Regardless if you have been paying for it.
    Take for example. My mom's car. She got a replacement for a car she was already paying; paid for 8,700 for a car and owed like 1800 left for it wayy back in 2016. trade it in for a new car of 2018. A new Tacoma. Ofc, its a cheap crap base model 4cyl for 27000. No miles. RIght off the lot. But because she was upside down on the car, the car at the time of sale was worth half of what she paid for in 2016.
    so 1800 on a loan, car is worth 4500. But paid almost 5900 for the damn thing. Could have paid it off in 2018-early 2019 and she would have no stupid 499 overhead.
    And to top it. Her insurance premium goes up due to the price of the car.

    After all the fees and closing and added principal from a previous loan comes out to 32000.
    All due to a result of a car accident. Some rich bitch with hubby's money SUV crashed into us and totaled my mom's paid-off car.
    Due to unspoken circumstances I wasnt aware of. The car wouldnt be reimbursed to my mom of what she paid back in 2007. She got a write-off instead of 4250.
    And then a year later. She gets the check from her insurance company and the opposing party. I believe it was an additional 5000 after all fees rendered; attorney, medical. But my mom was still paying for the truck. So all that money disappears cause she had costs, she has bills to pay. We had no money.
    I think the one thing that pisses me off is that she never discussed any of this shit with me so we're stuck the way we are.

    Thats the reality and Im sure that was what everyone was thinking when they see you go out and get a car that you cant immediately take ownership of the property.

    Then again, the way you set yourself up. This was a business proposition. Your decision was based on business. Thats the difference. What you did is pure business.

    But personally for me. I wouldnt ever do payment plans. If I have money. Im buying a car that works within budget and Im satisfied. Now is the best year of the time to buy used with such a saturated car market.
    There are cars I wanted as a kid back then that now for the low price of 20,000. I can find easily like 20 cars within that price range that I WOULD LOVE. To get behind the wheel on.
    And if my budget was 40 grand. I can walk away with pre-owned cars. NICE CARS. LOW MILES. BEST CARS. for 40g's
    or even better. Buy a modest cheap car. Used or New. And a toy and some change.

    Now if I win the lotto and let's just say I won a SMALL LOAN OF A MILLION DOLLARS.
    The sky's the limit. I can buy a brand-new ferrari. And to be honest with you. In comparison to a million dollar budget.
    I've seen alot of Ferrari's new are wayyyy cheaper than what Lamborghini offers. Like that F12 you have was worth 300,000. Alot of new Lambo's always start at 350 or higher.
    And the used ferrari's are even cheaper. You can find a decent one for 240k.
    You know how many ferrari's I can get for that price with a million? 4
    Thats alot of cars.
    Nice cars too.
    Or I can get one ferrari and a decent house with high-security and some toys and still have money left.

    For a small loan of a million dollars. You get so much out of it in a short time.

    Mike Just catching up to this installment in the Journey! I enjoyed your overview and the details on the F12, a car I will never own so living vicariously through you. A couple of comments:
    #. It would be useful for us subscribers for you to give us the “total cost of ownership” TOC on a monthly basis would be an interesting benchmark
    #. As a former car salesman you know that bank loans for cars are “rigged” against the borrowers. Because cars depreciate rapidly, perhaps not an F12, banks collect all the interest on the total loan upfront. All those early payments are pure interest and don’t pay down the principle. You either have to make supplemental payments, as you did with the C63, or wait several years until principle payments kick in.
    #. Give Mike high marks for great arm strength holding that camera out there for this entire vid.
    #. The F12 will be traded in less than 24 months!
    #. The success of a you tube channel is not only the content but the editing......that’s not easy, ask Mike!

    Mike, like a lot of small businesses you have a "wheelbarrow" business. You put the wheelbarrow down, and the business stops. Looking at the Ferrari as a business expense, I know lots of people that spend more than that each month on the rent for a shop. And you can't drive a shop!

Better hope the IRS doesn't watch it though, they're extremely particular about writing off car payments for business use, and seeing the word Ferrari pop up is just an invitation for audit. It's a no go, trust me I've consulted tax professionals and tried to execute this same strategy myself.

    I guess I can understand you spending that kind of money on a car payment because it is part of your business and what generates part of your income but I pay for all my homes and cars with cash and hopefully you will get to that point down the road. To be clear, I don't generate income from my cars so it's either cash or carry or not at all.

    People get enamored with cars, boats and hobbies often. Cash is king..if you made over $200k off of TVclip good for you..that isn't an easy life either.. Unfortunately you are one wrong comment away from deplatforming.. TVclip can do it.. I would say only 1 thing. What kind of house would you be living in with a $3500 a month mortgage? It would be a beautiful house. That house would be comfortable to you and your family. That house would be building equity and more than likely value. Your life would be better. This is America. You can choose your direction. I appreciate your honesty and sharing your personal life. I know there is a lot more to the autovlog family than what is shown on camera. Rock on Mike..You can have both cars and a home. It's economy of scale..
