Dude, get something that will work, there's more to life than your friends expression for the next week, after that they stop talking about it and just paid 30k more than you should!

In reality they will talk about the last part. I get more looks with my 93 del sol si with 216k on it than someone with a new truck. Because its bright green, rare, fast, and loud haha. I get a lot of looks with my 93 Chevy 3500 diesel because it has a sun roof and all the wheels are blacked out. Something unusual will always grab more attention than a new vehicle.

Personally, and professionally I would never buy anything to impress someone I would buy it because I actually needed it and something that was actually priced right. Although can you tell me how much money you'll make by impressing your friends? Cause if it's more than 10 grand than go for it...If not You might want to buy something more practical....

That's why I switched to new it pissed me off looking for good used trucks they always seemed to have obscene miles with rude prices as well. I get the diesel requirement I share that with you. But that 2011 ram has 62,750 miles on her, my god man thats high my 2011 ram is at 24,000. It got very old buying trucks with more miles on them then I was ever going to put on them in my time with them. Now low mileage would be my 2012 ram shes at 8,500 miles
