COVID 19 - looking for some positives

One positive thing (if you are still working and have to go into the office) is that there are a lot of good parking spots available!

Stay healthy and safe out there!

Still working and spots are wide open , though be careful near grocery stores , as people are panicking and not focused an driving , so higher chance of minor accidents
also I am driving with valves closed to avoid adding to agitation.. These are tough times and people are on the edge

Should be able to get better pricing as long as you don't special order one (planets are closing due to the virus).

Remember, life is short ... enjoy the/your ride

Less traffic and you can drive faster. Get pulled over and you just roll down your window and cough heartily.











I kid.

Not at all, why would you jump in to a $100K+ depreciating asset when EVERYTHING is or is going to be on sale in the very near future. Time to start thinking about investment moves and not ego purchases.

If you are all set financially and have a job that will be stable through a deep recession then time to shop for a deal. In the next few weeks I would expect to see very deep discounts on vehicles like the M5. In 2008 I got my E90 M3 for 24% off list as an example.

yeah my father was warning me about it , because i know houses are about to be on the drop and i do have cash set asside for that , and i was thinking about my 8k sales tax that i might lose if i dont buy something next 30 days but your totally right about it being a depreciating asset a bad one ! i think i will weather out the storm for a new m5 and wait til this collapses and get even a better deal than i got on mine

Yeah im feeling the same way right now, but I already have a F90, im thinking to maybe unload the car very soon. Once things will start to come back to normal, get another one with a juicy discount. As dealers will be struggling for sales, especially cars that are on the semi high end side.

Positives you ask.
I have never seen my wife clean the house more.
She is vacuuming, mopping and scrubbing everything, everyday.
Dam I never knew this was possible.
I come home and the house is spotless - I could only hope this becomes her new routine.
