    Apparently so is being butt-hurt by jealousy.

    A lot of times I see people take indifference to "nice cars" as jealousy or envy or something like that.

    Most times when a nice car rolls up no one cares any more. A lot of people just don't give 2 shits about vehicles.

    Obviously if you enjoy vehicles and are an enthusiast its different but the average person doesn't give a shit anymore.

    Any more?

    It's always been like that, there's a small subset of the population that are car automobile enthuisiasts and the majority aren't. They've got other things that they are most likely enthusiastic about and there's nothing wrong with that. One of my sons really couldn't care less about cars but ask him something about lizards and he'll astound you with the breadth of his knowledge.

    There's also a huge subset that don't know anything about cars and what they're worth who like to hate on others just by the make of car... I'm part of an Airdrie Facebook group and just the other day this older woman was complaining that the "Lexus SUV" wasn't towed during street sweeping because it's a "high end vehicle", if you've ever been to Airdrie, there is a 95% chance if you see a Lexus SUV it's likely a late 2000s early 2010s model worth around 15Gs... hardly what anyone would consider high end but in this lady's mind it's some rich fuck's car, go figure.... my mother in law was so in awe one time of this Porsche SUV, till I told her you buy those for under 10G now... most people would never guess my 370z is worth about $13,500 if I'm lucky, to them i look like some rich guy or a drug dealer or a dumb person that spends all his money on cars or is up to my eye ball's in debt.

    It's interesting to hear your perspective after many years of Lamborghini ownership.

    Congrats on the GT3RS, such a beautiful car. I have a GT3 coming and was offered a GT3RS if I didn't want to wait for the GT3 but I couldn't pull the trigger. I'm also not a beyond baller like you either.

    GT3 on order and NOT a beyond baller? Confused.

    The fact that a guy like Jordan, who busts his ass, and is good at what he does feels that he might be judged for driving a car of a certain brand is a shame. Maybe Canada would be a better place if success wasn't met with beta-ness and envy.

    How did you manage to get an allocation? Did you order a manual? I’m assuming your buying new.
    I like neat cars.

    There are beyonders that are willing to help if you're a car guy and not a car flipper.

    I assume you know the price difference between the GT3RS aftermarket (all you can get now) and MSRP on a GT3. The price difference can be $100k in some cases.

    I can't say what I did, I'm not proud of it. Just kidding though, really a beyonder actually made the connection for me and as Raj2 said below, as long as you're not looking to flip the car (which I am not), sometimes a slot opens up. And now because of the allocation given to me, they'll likely get more of my business going forward as they were really easy to work with.

    Yes, buying new, but did not get the manual transmission.

    Haha I said that in jest. But I was more so commenting on the fact that if you’re spending close to $200K on a car you can’t be considered a non-baller by anyone’s standards.
