well what does it matter if you bought it yourself or not

I am 24 and i bought it myself. But some of you who brag about bying it yourself live rent free (parents left you a house, or still living with your MAMA)....rent cost $$$ So, it really doesnt matter.......One person could be making $25,000 and still drive an M3 cause he is not paying RENT.

My Ride: '03 325i
I think I'm going to change my login to Grandpa. I didn't even own a car till I was 30. And that was way back in 1985, and the car was a '69 Cutlass. It had a great engine, and the body would have been pretty good if it hadn't been kept outside in Philadelphia for 16 years. For the record, my parents didn't buy it for me, but then it only cost $100.

By 1990 I was ready to move up to a new Honda Civic. You can not begin to appreciate what it was like to step up to that car. You could roll up the windows and no water would come in when it rained. I still have my Honda, and I'll give to my son when he turns 16.

I'm 48 and can afford to buy what I want, but my new 325i is so nice, it is hard to imagine wanting more. My son is trying to get me to buy chrome rims and put green neon lights underneath, but I'll let him save up his money and inflict this on my poor old Civic.

So what's the pattern? '69 Cutlass, '90 Civic, '03 BMW, I'm just hoping my next ride won't be in a hearse.

Cool, some more old people like me. There are benefits about living in California that I would have trouble turning down for a large home. I think a 10,000 sq ft home would be upwards to 3-4 million dollars here. Of course, if I were to cash out and move to the midwest I think my wife and I could retire comfortably.

We are planning on moving to Sacramento soon and when we sell our home I'm planning on getting at least a M3 Convertible for a Z8. Paid in cash.

yeah, I use to, but that was just to save as much money as I could for the down payment. Don't do it anymore.
