My brother and I have prob. almost the same income. His taste in everything is just a little bit above mine.
He drive a Lexus and a E-class mercedes, plus a Highlander Hybrid for the winter.
For me it is a Ford F150 Super crew pickup for winter and hauling around and a Honda Accord Coupe for spring and summer.
To him, driving those cars is important, for me it's a total waste. I'll drive
mine till the wheels almost come off, he buy a new one, thinking that that is the only time he can afford one.
