New car for university

Hello all first post here. I am a 20 year old university student here in New Zealand and currently drive a BRZ as my first car. I am likely getting a new car at the end of next year when I am halfway through my studies and the new car will be used as a daily for university. So need opinions thanks. The cars that I have had my eyes on is mainly a Mercedes glc63s amg which I could get but have also been thinking about a c63s or possibly a Mclaren 570s if the price drops a little bit by the end of next year. What do you people think? Please let me know your opinions or any recommendations of other cars I could look into. Thanks

Sounds like either a fantasy or son of a rich kid. Daily a 570s? LOL!

I've heard that cars are real cheap in New Zealand. Manufacturers send cars over in kitform, flat packs. Maclaren do a cracking flat pack for the same price as a fully formed Twin..

Hello georgejxu199 and welcome to our forum -

As long as your BRZ is dependable, I would suggest you just keep it till you graduate. Then, after you get established with a good job, pay off any school debts, then save up enough money to pay cash for a new car. That will determine what kind of car you get.

There ya go -

Yes. Universities usually are larger, offer a wider selection of classes , and specifically offer graduate programs leading to your masters or doctorate.

Though both words are thrown arround interchangeably like "fuel"and "gas".

I imagine that the "Real"difference is out there just waiting for you to find out what it is.

Good luck!

I’m being actually very serious though. Here are the links for the cars I have my eyes on. Just so you know I am not here to “joke” and want peoples opinions.

I can’t tell if your joking or not but yes cars here are considerably cheaper than overseas. Especially compared to Australia

Hello my family is not rich we are average and just have enough money to spend. I’m just fortunate enough to have a mum that is willing to spend money on me
