That is a very good point about the tires, the problem is i say to myself "buy a yaris and a vett" but then the yaris would be like the tire in your scenario. no mater the mileage it will never pay for itself. I would go with a 3 door yaris for weight savings, and possibly cheaper to buy. Im playing the devils advocate, your point is very true and a huge consideration.

How do you know if you're impressing them in the first place? For example, the jacked-up pickup/Hummer drivers think they are gawd's gift to everyone but there are more than a few of us who think "micropenis" when we see them.

I hate that people judge others on what car they drive, if i could i would ride my bicycle locally and a honda grom long distance. Even though i dont like it it is still a factor. If you have a nice tasteful car you get a lot of benefits, a few include: higher perception of you by your boss= more likely to get a promotion, higher perception of you by women= choice from more and better looking women(im 24 ) = better genetic children. Some people with no taste get huge lifted trucks and gold wrapped lambos that look vulgar and give a negative view of the driver. I think i have a good taste in cars so i would avoid this problem. If i saw the woman below looking at me i 110% care what she thinks of me. I think spending some alone time with her is worth a few less mpg and higher running costs? Again im playing the devils advocate and your point about not caring is spot on. Form a pure transportation stand point you are spot on
