I'll share some advice I got from my father when I was looking for a car at 16... "People don't get ahead buying junk"
We seem to be close to the same age at least, but come on man, you're willingly making this exponentially more complicated than it needs to be. Take a step back, actually look at what you think you are "saving" and ask yourself the question. "Is saving "$X" worth all of this hassle and time?"

Also, I have it saving me around $300 right now
, which is worth it to me.
