I Want My BMW

Time for an upgrade on the 11-year-old BMW. The heart wants what the heart wants. And the heart wants another Beemer, this time a 5-series. Now, as a concession to the practical side, I'm not looking at the brand new models, just the year to 2-year ones.

The wife is the voice of reason and practicalness. She wants a fuel efficient Japanese car. Either a Prius or Camry. Her Practical reasons (and my practical side agrees with her 100%):

1. Cost: we're talking about $10,000-15,000 difference.
2. I drive about two miles a day. Do I need a fancy car for that?

Here are my Heart's reasons:
1. We can afford it.
2. I'm tired of being practical. Life is too short for that. This could be my mid-life crisis car.
3. I don't want just a car. I don't want to just get from Point A to B. I want the transportation equivalent to an Ipod.
4. I'm trying to think rich. Drive rich.
5. I don't even know what the 5-series gas mileage is. And I don't care.

So yeah, right. Kinda of lame problem to have, but it's mine. It's my life.
