Even though this question was not posed to me allow me to interject....my brother bought a used 2016 A7 and let me say that the car is immaculate! If you can afford the maintenance these cars are well worth it...check one out brodi the tech is insane! Cheers to you on your endeavors!
So as an Audi owner for my last three cars, brotha right here is on point with that maintenance. sh*t is hella $$$$$$, I had no problem throwing that Audi care on my two that we got right now. Man fu*king Brakes and Rotors on an RS7 2017 hit my a*s for $5600. sh*t my youngest broke my gas tank lid and that sh*t hit me for $1300 for a fu*king LID.

If you can get this car and still live life in the way that makes you comfortable. Meaning you don't have to stop doing other sh*t just because you have this car. Then get it brotha, enjoy the money you have earned in your career. I was there in December 2020, that AMG 63 was calling my name but I stoped at the Audi dealership first and man RS7 stole my heart and my sale chick was Colombian. It was meant to be

If you can get it, do it. It's your dream car. Never know what can happen. At the very least, lease it.

I honestly don't like the new cls. The previous model was much better.

As people have mentioned the gt63 would be wayy better at that price point
The CLS and the GT63 are two totally different price points my boy.

Even if you know how to do car repairs yourself, parts are expensive. BMW, Audi, Mercedes-Benz... for example, a motor mount is just steel and rubber, costs around $50 for a Mazda.... similar thing for Mercedes-Benz is $150 to $200.

Lease it. I have the GT53 which is basically the same car. You could probably get a little discount cuz they don't sell well. They actually might stop making them.
what's ya payments? I been looking at the 2021 GT53 and been going back and forth about it

Lease it, drive it, give it back. No maintenance out of your pocket and you can upgrade to the next car to lease of your desire.

I would get it only if it had a extended warranty on the parts but I would look toward leasing versus buying. But if you do buy, find a cool mechanic who can help you out and get a PPI on a used car before you buy.

If you have to have it lease it because when they need fixing you donít want to be the one holding the bag. If you want a luxury car I personally rock with Lexus because of reliability and they hold value much better than MB. Also look into common problems with that model online and forums see if your ready for those issues if you decide to buy. Ultimately itís your money and your life but try to make the best financial decision while still being happy

I stopped reading here, never count money you donít have.

If next year is when, then wait another 2 years so you can afford the insurance, gas,etc.
Signing bonus is the reason. I already have the money but starting in late fall I will have a lot more, I could afford it even now if I really wanted it but there is a way I am going about it. But I get your point tho it ain't bad advice.

I would have done this, only issue is my commute will have me go beyond the mileage limit before the lease is up, I have been trying to find a way around that.

Old head perspective.

You only live once and you should enjoy the life you live. However, you should also be responsible about what could be considered a large purchase.

Life has taught me that it's not about what you can afford but about what you can maintain.

You may be able to afford the car payment but what about gas, insurance, and maintenance? All of these things need to be considered as they will undoubtedly go up as you are dealing with a luxury car.

If all of this has been factored in and it's not going to bring you any undue hardship then I say get what you want. Again, life's short and passes in a blink.

I tend to buy what I want when I'm looking for a car. However, I don't buy new cars often and I tend to keep them until they die.

Never lease a car young man. Here's why.

1. Even though a car is a depreciating a*set you can still build equity in it. With a lease you don't build anything. With a car you purchase, you have the ability to trade it in and get some money towards purchasing something else. With a lease you don't a dime when you turn it in. A lease is paramount to a long-term rental car. You've put out thousands of dollars with nothing to show for it.

2. Limited use of the car. Yes, leases tend to offer lower monthly payments but they also handcuff your ability to really enjoy the vehicle. All leases for cars come with mileage restrictions. Those restrictions seem to get tighter and tighter every couple of years. Years ago the standard was no more than 20k miles a year. Then it dropped to 15k. Now I believe some manufacturers limit it to 12k a year. The average person drives more than 20k a year when you factor in commuting to work, grocery shopping, or taking trips were flying isn't necessary.

3. As previously stated it's like having a rental car with the exception that YOU have to pay for the maintenance on a car that you're not going to own. At least with a rental you can drive it and give the bi*ch back without paying for oil changes, filters, and new brakes.

4. Insurance costs are typically higher on leased cars because the insurance company is on the hook for something that their client (you) doesn't own.

5. You pay more in the long run. When I was younger you could lease a car with no money down. It wasn't a requirement that any money be put down on a leased car. Now, car companies want 3k-4k down for a lease. Why in the hell would you put money down for a car that you're essentially renting? That money doesn't go towards anything. No future payments, no maintenance, no nothing. Believe me I know because I asked. They'll give you some security fee, deposit fee, transportation fee, bullsh*t excuse.

However, when you return the car they don't give you your money back. Don't do it young man. The only way leasing a car works out is if you run a rental car company and you need newer cars more frequently.
