my first car

When you live in Berlin, a car isn’t really nessecary. You can get anywhere with public transportation. But in the winter or at night, a car is much more comfortable. That’s why my girlfriend and me bought a car together.


After testing a few cars, we decided to get a Volkswagen Lupo. It’s a pretty small car which can hold up to 4 people without getting too uncomfortable. Insurrance and tax are both cheap, so is the gas usage. I need around 7l / 100km in the winter for driving in the city, which is 1l more than in the summer. On the high way, usage goes down 1l. We got it for € 2300 a month ago, that’s why I haven’t been posting here. Having a car is really nice, except when you need to look for parking spaces…

    Insurance and tax are cheap, but only compared to other cars in Germany. Don’t compare to the US :-) A guy in Oklahoma still drives for a fraction of the German price.
