    Owning a supercar is just as expensive as you think

    I thought this was a interesting article. I'm not going to complain next time I have to buy new tires!

    Thats about what I remeber reading sone time ago.

    The one they left off was the Bugatti Veyron.

    Tires are $38,000 each ($152,000 total) recommended that they are changed every 2500 miles and every 10k you should change rims and tires which are $50,000 each ($200,000).

    They estimate yearly operating cost in the neighborhood of $300,000.

    That sound about right. I read the article in Dub magazine (I'm not a subscriber, we get it delivered to work for free). The article read that Bugatti requires you to have a climate controlled storage facility to store your car amongst other ridiculous requirements. The article said the average 10 year ownership cost was somewhere around $8,000,000.

    I can put some 18's on Nitto tires on it for about $3,000. Sounds like a much better idea.

    My brotherinlaw just bought a new M5 with the comp package. He opted out of the comp brakes as they are about $13k to replace, from what he told me.

    It is freakishly fast and fun to drive!

    Gotta pay to play.

    I LOVE ferraris but would never want to own one because of the maintenance.... and the fact that I can't afford the car.

    Jeez, I'm trying to save for 37's when I need new tires. I'd have to sell organs or children to be able to get an oil change on those cars. I'd love someday to own something like that, but for now I'll have to settle driving my wife's STI and pretend it's something faster.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
