Please Can I take up your time? Is one wrong?
For the amount of money I paid for the car, you had better keep it a good 5 years.
Considering the money I paid for the car, you had better keep it a good 5 years.

Hi,

If you can take the time to provide a context for these rather odd remarks, I'll happily take the time to comment on them. OK?

For example, why are there two people involved in this? Which one owns the car?

Hi

Let me explain:

The mother wants to buy the child a car. At first her budget was $5000, he managed to upper the budget to $7000. She said okay. When the time come to buy the car, she said : For the amount of money I just paid, you had better keep the car a good 5 years.

Is this clear?

Both OK. No real difference.

'You had better keep it' makes it sound like the son owns the car, although from your context he doesn't seem to.

Are you alc24?
