50% off by making a SIP investment. Too good ?
Want to gift yourself a BMW car on your 35th birthday? And that too without worrying about your salary increments or any recessions. The question that you are asking yourself is what is a better deal? Taking a car loan now, or save up to buy your dream vehicle after 7–10 years.
If you already have the money, read no further. This article is only for the 25-somethings, who want to save up for their car. And wouldn’t it be great to get the car at one-third the price? Yes, it is possible!
Plan #1 The old way – take a loan
The BMW 3 Series costs about Rs. 47 lakhs or upwards (on road in Bangalore). Assuming a loan amount of Rs. 47 lakhs, you can opt to buy the car now and pay an equated monthly instalment (EMI) for a period of maybe 5 years (or more). Refer to our car loan calculator to calculate your EMI. Considering an interest rate of 12.5%, your total payment for 5 years (including the interest component) would work out to around Rs. 63 lakhs at a monthly EMI of Rs. 84,230/-
Plan #2 The smarter way – start a SIP
An alternative plan is to purchase your BMW at HALF the price with the power of compounding. Let’s see how:
Assuming that you are 25 years old now, you have 10 years till your 35th birthday. Taking into account a 5% year-on-year increase in car prices, your BMW 3-series model will cost around Rs. 59.8 lakhs in 7 years.
To get to Rs. 59.8 lakhs in 7 years, let us devise an SIP-based mutual fund plan that will work for you. We put this data into our car goal and here are the results:
If you have the luxury of time and can wait for 10 years instead, you could get your beamer at Rs. 26k per month or 70% OFF. Better than Big Billion Day Sale!
So how is this better?
Your SIP monthly investment is Rs 42,800/-, which is half the cost of your loan EMI.
Your total investment for the SIP plan is around Rs. 36 lakhs, which is again around half the cost of your loan payment.
What’s the catch?
This applies to almost everything in life that you want to buy. Don’t you want everything big in your life at 1/3rd or 1/2 the price?
