My Ride: 2003 TiAg M3
To be honest, it was pretty redneckish project that started out as a 12 pack of Red Stripe and a "hmmm, I wonder if we did this" kinda thing. We heated the cold cothode with an Oxy-Acetylene Torch (from a distance, it was all we had that would produce enough heat ) and slownly wrapped them around a piece of pipe. I put them on and have not been motivated enough to take them off.

Let's get a poll to see the actual representation.

I have an 04 Lexus RX330 AWD. The most reliable car I've owned. 35K in one year, not a single issue. The E46 is just for fun.

It's fairly obvious that "ownership" is an awfully skewed concept around here. Perhaps I should throw something out, here:

If your name is not on the title... (I guess that rules out 95% of the 16 year olds here.)
-or-
If you are leasing the car...

Then, quite simply, you do not OWN the car. Period!

And also, if you're making finance payments, then the bank technically owns the car (as collateral) until you've paid off the loan, even if your name is on the title.

Learn to distinguish between assets - something you possess on which you owe nothing or owe less than what it is physically worth - and liabilities/debt - something you possess on which you owe more for than it is actually worth (your true worth is measured by your assets minus your liabilities). The guy with the ASSET actually has more than the guy with the LIABILITY, even if the "asset" in this case is a 1999 323i and the "liability" is a 2005 M3. Personally, if I can't pay cash for something that depreciates (like a car), I consider it to be beyond my means...because technically, it is.

Once you see things like this, it shouldn't be surprising that most of the older guys around here are driving "cheaper" cars - 325's, 330's - instead of brand new M3's. I know how easy and tempting it is for some guy fresh out of college with his first real job, maybe making as much as 60k (or even more) - to go out and start making payments on an M3 or 997 or something else (even just a 330 or some such) and then get a fake E46Fanatics "baller" label. But all you're REALLY doing is incurring considerable debt on a rapidly depreciating asset. Not very smart from a long term perspective.

Sorry to be so blunt, but having something on credit or loan is NOT the same as owning it in full as an actual legitimate asset.

My 330 is for the late spring, summer, and early fall. I have a 96 Thunderbird for the winter, and whenever the forecast calls for inclement weather. My chick has a Lexus RX to get me around when it snows more than a couple inches.

Exactly, cars you are paying for or are in your name strictly for your use.
Not a car in your name that you do not drive. Not a car your parents own.
