Sounds like the majority of Fanatics are loaded and some are kept momma's boys born with the proverbial spoons o'gold....and a couple of up and comers. How else can a $25K/yr. kid afford a $60K ride plus all those high $ mods? I wuz Born po and inched up to teachers' salary... I saved for my E46 cuz I knew I'd already spent the downpayment, at least, waiting to win the CCA foundation cars. HEHE!

Over $300k, but I work my ass off.
Almost went crazy a couple of months ago from working too much, so I toned it down a little

It really depends on where you live, because of cost of living. My g/f and I make a combined 260k but live in Boston and don't really have much extra money.

you gotta keep in my mind that a lot of these "kids" get student loans to pay for school so if they have a job they probably pay for their car and probably use some of the left over loan money to buy some top $$ mods

I call that 26% of members make over $150,000. Put up $1,000,000 on the poll and you'll have 25% say they make that much.

Like a HOUSEHOLD income over $150k is out of the ordinary.
While it is surprising how little $150K will buy you, it actually is quite out of the ordinary. According to the U.S. Census, in 2007 the median (mathematical average) household income in the U.S. was $50,233. The average salary was $45,113 for men and $35,102 for women. I understand, I grew up with 2 parents working good professional jobs and I lived in Columbia, MD- it is easy when we are among the privileged to think that is how everyone lives, but unfortunately it is not the norm.

Yes, and your household income would best be described as your income plus your wife’s/husband's if married. Your parents income really should only be included if you have full access to all their bank accounts.

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
How does this poll prove any but the first? This poll only asks income. Money does not equal sophistication, coolness, leadership ability or education. Plenty of great leaders make pauper salaries (try to get by on an E5 or E6 salary with a family in the DC area), plenty of well educated and sophisticated people barely get by (try to live on an assistant professors salary). Meanwhile, I know plenty of rich idiots- though they do tend to think their money means something about themselves (i.e. they are self-absorbed, spoiled, conceited, elitists).

I grew up in a pretty rich area (one of the richest counties in America) and most people thought of BMW drivers as snobs and/or "new money" and often as little better than the "ricers" (they were for spoiled kids). I only drive one because they are fun, I'm kind of embarrassed at the image and stereotypes.

lol at the poll, if this was a lamborgini forum, sure I'll believe the poll. I've never thought BMW were that special. The reality is, not many people make over 80K/year. And 80K/yr in the big city isn't much money. Now if you were in wyoming that is a different story.

How can i be spoiled? I work 7 days a week to pay for my BMW, and i honestly mean 7 days every week, every month, every year.. Heck i was not even free on new years eve or christmas...

You cant really state that just cause a guy who's not old is spoiled because he owns a nice car..

i'm 27 and my household income is well over 250k.. so it's not that surprising that 45% of people on a BMW forum have a household income of over 150k. it's not this is a scion forum. bmw's are LUXURY vehicles.
