She GOT her Cadillac CTS. She drives this in the summer and drives the Yukon Denali XL in the winter. She is really roughing it.

Actually redoing the whole house right now. That was her big wish.

Bought the Camaro end of April- May the place got a new roof, July it got new siding , insulation and doors, now I am re-doing the kitchen, and the last thing both bathrooms get a makeover.

I didn't even ask. I just showed up in it to pick her up one day and blew her away. She squeeled with excitement. It will be her turn next vehicle, that's the way it works here.

Had this exact conversation when I was buying my Camaro.

She got a 2013 Ford Explorer XLT

Really nice vehicle. The few times I drive it, I am jealous of her interface.

My wife gets whatever she wants...with the understanding that if we ever hit rock bottom financially, priority of funds expenditures is as follows:

1) Fund, at any cost, anything needed to keep the 1LE operational. That includes loan payment, insurance, and operational costs (fuel etc.).
2) Fund, with any/all remaining cash, any "required" modifications for 1LE.
3) Fund, if possible, anything needed to sustain the absolute lowest quality of life (food, water, healthcare, clothing, etc.)

Lots of good posts here. As far as cars that are toys are concerned, right now we have a Solstice and Camaro SS. I sort of view the Solstice as her toy, but she hasn't driven it much since our son was born. The reason the conversation came up, is that I was either 1) considering trading my '10 SS for a new 1LE or 2) trading the Solstice (and maybe Camaro) for a new Vette. I think she is just annoyed with the fact that I seem to have gotten into a habit of buying a new sports car every 3-4 years....which I agree is a valid point. But I'm also in the frame of mind that we better enjoy stuff now while we can.

Our relationship doesn't work that way. When we discussed the upgrade she said to get whatever I want because as long as I'm happy then she's happy. The only thing she demanded was that I get it in RED! I simply replied with "yes, dear."

Even though I'm the only one that drives it, mods it, cleans it, and makes the payment it is still ours... She still gets whatever she wants.

I maybe can't get her a huge $$$ item but she gets about everything she wants\needs. She wants a new Jeep Cherokee when her lease is up (conveniently about 3- months before my lease is up) so I want to surprise her with a new one and already told her I will help her with the increase in payments. This should butter her up for me getting my dream car of a ZL1.

My question is besides walking in a paying cash, driving home and putting a bow on it, how do you go about turning in your wifes lease and buying a car for her. Does it go in my name and then will that effect me buying my car a few months later. Of course I want to surprise so she cant be there to sign or whatever!

I have till June but was just wondering on how I could pull something like this off!

My wife got a van January 2012. I picked up my 12 SS in April. I said it was only fair

Best thing is my truck is the oldest now so it will be the next one to get replaced

We do separate finances or whatever. I'm pretty sure she spends more money at the casino in a year than I make. Beside her SUV cost a lot more than my Camaro. But I cleared it with her out of respect as she usually does with me.

Master degree in Psychology

She really did a good job on your head , she makes you believe that you are in charge
Good luck with that

She is way ahead of you on things that you know
