So what kid claimed their parents income as theirs?

that poll has some...well, lets just say interesting results. Idk...from some of the cars that I see some of you have its not too hard to believe that there might be more people on a board like this with higher than average incomes but i'm shocked by the percentage over $150k? So did you guys get screwed on your taxes too...I know I did.

I'm not into giving out actual $ amounts but like I said in another thread...my wife does really well working in Neurosurgery and I do OK owning half of a business that I hardly ever set foot into.

Yes, it's a roller coaster ride. Nothing turns your stomach like an option going the wrong way .

Dittio...

I don't consider my parents to be part of MY household.

Although i still live then them... LOL...

About 20k a year (Skiing instructor in winter, Teach golf in summeR) but hell... i'm only 16

Now that the Canadian Dollar is almost on par with American... The better!

Dad brings in over 140k himself, mom brings in about 80k? so i am not too surprised... after all... there are tons of guys on this forum w/ M3 at the age of 17...

Good Thread

Many people believe that drivers of BMW's are richer then the rest of the world, more sophisticated, cooler, more educated! Leaders and not followers!

Guess this poll proves the theory!

Dad pulls in roughly $130k a year, he's a senior specialist (IT) for BASF
Mom pulls in about the same, she does IT as well, SAP stuff for Roche (dutch pharmaceutical company)

I made $15k last year doing part-time consulting work for accounting software (ACCPAC outdated i know, Adagio, Peoplesoft)...being a full time student doesnt pay though
