This is how a 12-14k M3 is made. Kid gets car, doesn't understand or can't afford the maintenance that has to be done. Car start to run like crap after it's been mechanically neglected. Kid goes to the dealer and gets a repair quote that makes his heart stop. Car goes on craigslist for $13k.

But hey, maybe they'll live happily ever after. At least you can pester him about doing maintenance.
At least I get to drive it to teach him stick ! Haha
