I got a new Mazda 6 Atenza a couple of months ago. The 2.5lt turbo they put in it is a heap of fun and the thing handles like its on rails.

I dont own these cars but Im the one who gets to enjoy them the most. Last week I picked up a 2018 BMW X5. We trialled Tesla Model X and the Audi Q8 but found this to be the more convenient car for the bosses wife. I preffered the Tesla but it's too much of a fishbowl at the front for her.

But today, today I picked up a 2018 AMG Mercedes S400d L. This is a really, really sweet car. Going to take me a week to understand and use all the features in this car. Took it onto the Autoroute today and was at 170 kmh before I noticed and then backed right off (was a 110 zone, but quiet). This replaces a 2006 S500 L, which now just sits outside like a child that isnt wanted anymore.

I wish I could afford the AMG, it's an incredible drive, but at 100,000 euros($150,000 AUD)... Well, it's just not for normal people.
Like yourself I don’t own the car, a Ferrari, but I get to enjoy a FIFO mates run about



My brother in law also let’s me play with his Maclaren and lambo


The Maclaren is in a league of its own

That’s why they didn’t bother

$10k for every service, every 5,000km
$10k every 10,000 for tyres

The depreciation is nuts, the rego in Singapore is around $80k

Unless it’s through away money, it’s madness.
I went to Singapore last year, it is ridiculous how much wealth you see around the place. $20 for a beer at the top of Marina Bay Sands!

In the discussion about Singapore and cars , I heard a podcast talking about wealth and status and the ways cultures show this.

It seems some Asian countries display status by the cars they own/have/lease. To the extent they will forfeit other areas of their lives to maintain that outward appearance
