£7k on a first car
I hope you did your insurance research before buying the car.
It depends on what the car is, how many miles it's done, what's the sevice history like and overall are you happy with it?
In answer to the OP it depends on how much money you have. To me it seems a ludicrous waste, but if you have the money why not. Bear in mind you will at least curb the alloys if not cause cosmetic damage to the bodywork. There's no way it'll stay pristine unless you're both lucky and naturally gifted at driving. So put some money aside for that kind of stuff as it does happen.
Ultimately if you have the money then you can't take it with you - so do it.
Expense is entirely relative.
Sometimes buying the little banger can be false economy: they never make it through their next MOT unscathed and before you know it, your little £500 car has cost you a couple of grand in repairs/replacements.
But you only get one life, if driving a pricey car floats your boat enjoy it.
I brought my first car for £350 and its still going six years later.
Seller was desperate to get rid, thought it was haunted.
Nothing spooky or unlucky so far.
