financed 5k to pick this car up after getting the insurance check from my totaled acura 2.5TL. did a 2 year payment, $275/month.

i'm paying off another loan first that's $100/month. got about $2,700 left on that and i've been throwing $400-500 chunks at it as often as i can crunch the numbers and still be cool till next paycheck/bills, etc. i should have that paid off soon enough as so far i'm doing that more frequently than the regular payments, which are monthly, so i guess you could say i'm making 5x-10x payments?

i've been on this eating healthy, working out, saving money thing. picking up a little more overtime at work, cutting back on a few pleasures, staying home more, saving on gas, etc.

well... i was doing alright on gas till i read the damn "how hard do you push your audi" thread now i gotta tear ass everywhere ;)

I was planning on using my tax refund next year for coilovers and wheels.. after doing some more budgeting it looks like I'll be putting that towards paying this thing off. [:(]

Anyone have any ideas on making some extra money on the side? I'm not gonna sell drugs, haha.

what i'd like to do is take the money i earn from my jawb and put that towards bills, expenses, food, etc. take what's left over from that and save. then, i'd like to start doing some freelance web design and use that as my "fun" money to put towards this car. not only would that be motivation to actually DO the work, but i enjoy web design a lot anyway so it's getting me back in to it. win win.

tryin to get my portfolio (http://www.diandata.com) up first though. just started learning CSS a few weeks ago. fun stuff.

i guess the point is, find something you can do on the side that you enjoy and that maybe would be motivation to actually do it, resulting in $$$

and aint nothin wrong with slangin. just gotta be careful and don't sell to kids.

a site that takes me 5 minutes to find the "about" page and still can't find one gets the "el closo".

Looked into it a bit, pretty neat idea. Anyone wanting info about it just click the "About" at the bottom.

I'm not really an 'expert' with much of anything though. Very knowledgable with DSMs and somewhat with Audi's I suppose, wonder how much of a need there is for a guide in that field though.
