People buying a fancy house = trying to impress people they DO know. (hi ma, this is my house - sweet, im starting a family here, and invest in this property)
If you can afford the car, go for it.
Your money, your decision.
No one can tell you what to do.

My thing is I love cars. Luckily I can afford my cars. However I don't judge if someone drives a car worth as much as their house - If you driving you'r an adult, and you can spend your money as you like (or not spend it and let your car get repossessed)
As my friend justifies it, you can sleep in your car but you can't drive your house....
I'm not sure that once you've been training yourself for years to distinguish between buying assets vs liabilities, needs vs wants etc, that you will ever justify spending R1m on a car once you make it. I don't think I will.
