Parents donating a car, fine ! But a $40k car for a 16-year-old child ? Where's the logic in that ? As a 'self-made man' (by lack of a different term to describe my career) coming from a cop as a father and a social worker for a mother, I firmly believe in an education through humility. How is a kid ever to grow into a respectful adult towards those who have a tougher life with less means, if it never experienced what value some things truly have ?
Sense of reality, that's what a $2k beater as a first car is all about. The dangers of a good kid with a $40k birthday present car turning into an ignorant bastid later on are just too real. I've seen it happen too often.
The opposite can happen too, a friend of mine comes from a rich family but he's an alternative kinda guy, never got anything and he doesn't like spending money (as it 'feeds the global consumerism scheme'). He makes more than I do, but walks around in what can best be described as rags and on $10 discount shoes. He can walk into a dealership and buy a brand new car, cash money. Instead he has a bus pass. You know what he said to me when I first arrived in the Bimmer ?

"You won the lottery or something ? Started dealing drugs now have we ? Don't you think it's a bit overkill ? You motherloving pimp ass B !"



I nearly stabbed him at that point.


PS : the internet is anonymous enough to make bragging a pretty pointless affair. It can however illustrate a point to explain a good part the situation.
To some people spending 40k on a car is like buying a civic

I am a 21 years old...my parents bought my first new car (a corolla) for me... since then, i have done everything on my own...i paid my college, i paid for my next car (an audi tt), and then the next car(m3)...i paid the rest of the corolla off and gave the car back to them...my parents made sure i had everything i NEEDED during my childhood and i make sure they have everything in their life now...so u can say parents started paying for my stuff when i was young and then i took over...but the M was all me baby...and 3 more payments, and it will be paid off...

My parents bought me my first car when i was 18, which is a 2001 Nissan sentra.

BUT I am now 23 and purchased recently my first car ON MY OWN and it's a 2004 ///M3.
I'm proud to say I didn't have anyone help me buy my dream car.

Nice 4 year old bump. Kind of curious what you were searching for to find this...
