$500 a month on a WRX is insane to me though.
I make in the upper $30k/year and my car payment is indeed $500/month but I'm not struggling. I'm not loaded obviously but I'm not hurting. I do work a **** load of overtime though. I have a good job that's not going anywhere and this is the car I have always wanted and I got it.I just graduated college and got a full-time job, this was my reward to myself and I'm making it work. And I do not plan trading it in any time soon.
