Thanks again for the follow ups.

I’m all for finding legitimate perks when I can get them!

Certainly an FBT exempt vehicle will be worth considering. But as someone self-employed, I guess I see money in the company bank account as well as in my own personal bank account as being “mine”, and I need to consider whether a possible higher initial outlay, plus higher running costs for an FBT exempt vehicle is ultimately comparable in cost to a vehicle with a lower initial outlay and lower running costs, factoring in the FBT. Considering almost all the driving will be in urban, built up areas, if the cost of a car that is easier to maneuver and easier to park isn’t much more expensive than a 4WD or ute, then I might make the sacrifice!

An XR6 ute is tempting! Sadly, the need for four doors rules that one out!
