I was talking to my agent [that I have had for nearly 30 years] and we were going through some of the different expensive cars and even the SLR would have only cost me $800 every six months [full coverage of course] with multi car discount [see below].
I know when I was living in NYC for a while I bought a E55 and to save time was just going to license it up there instead of my home in Kentucky [I was on a long term contract in NYC]. The difference in TAX for the sale was $3000 and the insurance would have gone from [Kentucky $450/6mo] to [NYC $3,200/6mo], both at State Farm where I have been a customer with no accidents and no tickets on the record for over 25 years. Needless to say I hauled my butt with title in hand down to KY for a couple of days to get the car registered at home base.
I think the writer has taken a bit of liberty with this article. NO ONE should be paying this much for that car, not even Lindsey Lohan - OK, maybe Lindsey Lohan.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
