If you are not in the market for a new car, I wouldn't replace yours unless it is a junk heap.

Keep the car you have and make sure it is neat and clean. Just as you wouldn't wear torn jeans or sweats to a buyer appointment, you should make sure your car is presentable

When it comes time to replace your car, take a look at a 2-3 year old luxury car if your budget does not allow for a new one. Customers will never know that it is not a 2009... they'll just see the car and see that is a luxury brand.

Don't worry about people thinking you make too much... unless you buy a Rolls!

I've never been a pretentious person; I'm more interested in safety and reliability. When researching another vehicle that would meet the needs of me and my customers, I purchased a pre-owned Honda Odyssey Mini-Van. And when it dies, I'll probably get another one.

Stick with what you have for now and keep it clean. Studies show that only about 5% of the people who "get into real estate" are still in the business after 1 year. If you're one of the 5% still in the business after a year, then make your decision about the type of car you buy.

In my area, we rarely have customer/clients in our cars.
