I'm trying to work out the pros and cons of an idea I have had about the costs of running our two cars.
I do high mileage. I am currently driving an E46 320dse with 191k on the clock. I am thinking about changing car. My wife does very low mileage and is driving an 05 Merc B200 with 40k on it.
My idea is that I will change (there's a very nice 09 BMW 520d I test drove today) but she would drive my new car to keep the mileage down. I would take her car which is now 7 years old but low mileage and put about 150k on it over the next 2-4 years.
In this way she would have a nice car to drive and I would have access to low mileage cars I could drive into the gorund over 3-4 years. It also means that only one car would have finance on it at any given time.
The wife isn't so happy though. Any downsides I haven't thought of?
