    C63 - what do they cost to own?

    Have the opportunity to buy an 09 c63 with under 20k for late eighties.

    Can use finance at 5% for it which makes that part cheap but just wanted to check that I'm not underestimating the ownership costs.

    I've budgeted:
    2k for tyres
    2k for servicing
    2.5k for rego and insurance
    3k for fuel
    3k for when it fucks up
    10k depreciation

    These are per annum figures.

    Realistic? Will do about 10k per year.

    I do $100 a week in fuel for about 350kms.

    The fuck up fund would not cover much on one of these, so best not break it

    The rest looks good. Specs and price sound similar to mine, just do it

                Rotors and pads are cheap for the non PP cars in the US - would just buy them there - hopefully this would come in within the 2k/year servicing - given the k's i'd be doing it shouldn't need a rotor/pad change more than once every 3 years.

                Assuming finance of the full amount (say 90k) - if paying cash there is still the opportunity cost of not putting that money into the mortgage @ 5% so $375 a month (interest only, principal is handled in the depreciation)

                    5k pa for slows.

                    $6k volvo runs 11.8's with ease.
                    13k V12 liberty ran 11.6's with ease and sounded better.

                    Suckers game that mercedes shit. Unless its a 500SLC with a giant fuckoff turbo.

                        Man id be actually looking into the rotors and pads, and finding out labor @ the workshop you'll be using (if youre not doing it yourself) -- and the real life service interval for them

                        My dad had a '09 or '10 E350 with cross drilled brakes (sport pack or whatever), he drives sedately, and had to get rotors & pads done in <10thou km's and it was worth ~$1600 to get them done.. I'd presume AMG shit would be double that

                          got told by friend of a mate of a cousin etc that the dealership will replace the rotor with the pads or something. going to an independant they'll simply machine the rotors like anyone else and costs a fraction of what the dealership charges.
                          maybe someone can confirm
