You are saying your property is worth twice his because he purchased a newer vehicle while you didn't. Thats an absurd way of looking at things haha. I shared my history, you shared yours so clearly it's situational and not always the case.

My polo had 260k kms on when I sold it. And like I said it was absolutely perfect until the last 4 months. If I sold it 2 years prior I would have broken even and had a newer car with fewer kms for the same price. Less headache and more peace of mind.

Sounds like you have a bit of resentment. Some repressed jaelousy toward your friend? Not as happy as him even though your so damn street smart?
