Not very FIRE-y

Our frugal car?

One of the very un-frugal things we do is drive a fully loaded luxury car with a big engine.

That’s a picture of our car above.

Mr. German bought the car in cash when it was a few years old, which means it’s certainly the frugal choice in the luxury car market.

He also thinks I hate his car, but I don’t hate it.

I’m just not comfortable with it, because I’m used to driving old beaters. With this car, I’m stressed to dent it or scratch the rims or something.

What I do like about this car, is that Mr. German feels comfortable on his daily commute. 🙂

I also know that he plans to drive this car to the ground, so in time, it will eventually become a FIRE-car. It’s just not one right now. I’m okay with that. Not thrilled, but okay.

Compromises, you know? 😉
