I wonder who is the youngest E46 owner that has PAID OFF his/her car and what do they do for a living.

reply...

Threads like this make me somewhat sick. When I was in high school my first car was a rusting toyota corolla hatchback, my second was a toyota tercel, then a saturn SC2, and now my 330ci. So I was 25 when I got it. My Dad would have never financed a bmw for me even if I made enough to pay for it. Nothing against you guys. You should feel sooooooooo lucky and thankful to have one at your age. Also, mad props to those of you who got one all by yourself with no, and I mean no, help. I was 25 and barely had enough credit, with a down payment of $5000, to purchase a used 2001 330ci. I also had to give the 5000 in order to not have a cosigner. Ugh. I also think that it was good that I didn't get anything handed to me as it made me repect and learn about cars before buying the ultimate driving machine.

Just thought I'd share my opinion.

thats legit bro, i could have bought my car acash tho but i asked my dad to finacne it as i am not old enough in order to invest more money into buying and selling into my buisness. if i blew it all at once on a car i would have nothing and for now thats a nono but if something ever happens the money is in the bank and i can take care of it. for every man his own!

My Ride: e46 M3 yet again!
Send a message via AIM to Carbon///M3
I'm 17, dad passed away a while back a couple days after my 16th birthday so I took over his old vehicle.. '01 GMC Yukon, drove that for a few months. My mom decided she wanted a new car after things were settled which was quite fine with me because that meant I was gonna get her 2003 325ci!! (which was the OB one that I blacked out, dropped, etc..) I put about $4,000 into that yukon (wheels, drop, ice) and was forced to quickly sell it and didnt really get what I wanted but still got pretty good money (15,000). That $15,000 went to the payment of my mothers new car '06 AW X3 which she is leasing. I came accross the M3 I now own and decided the price was to big of a steal to pass up ($30,000 keeping in mind the mileage 31,000 and a clear/clean title and its an 03.5) So after having my 325ci for 8 months I just recently sold it and got $17,500 for it (wanted more but had to get rid of it) With that money, plus money I had.. I bought my M3 which I plan to keep very very many years. M3 has always been a dream of mine... never thought Id own an e46 ///M at this age or ever for that matter, I dont think anyone understands the joy this car brings to me. My big plan for it is to remain with low mileage, and to be modded tastefully. Sometime around may I plan to buy a used yamaha R6 and some sort of very cheap DD. IF that does happen, the ///M will be a garaged and covered car 5-6 days out of the week. Oh and, all mods are purchased by me.. I dont think it's right any other way.
