26 Bought a 330ci in 2001. I can't believe parents buy a kid an M3. Not because of the money but because of the power. When I was 16 I was driving a Mustang GT and Im lucky Im not dead.

Most people on this board are under 25. I am getting old. I need a 5 series!

Reading these posts, America is truly incredible!

Just call me Grandpa! I am TOTALLY amazed that everyone here is this young. I have worked my ASS off to afford my first Bimmer (bought not leased), but buying a house HAD to come first! On this forum, I'm middle aged at 32!

ADVICE ANYONE?

You're fine...I respect what you had to do in order to get to where you are now. My dad worked his ass off before he could buy his benz...his first car was a $9,000 dodge...then a cheap buick...then a 4runner...and finally, his brand spankin new (at the time) 2000 e320. Me on the other hand, I work at my parent's restaurant every once in awhile and earn (I use that word lightly) the cash to pay off my bmw.

How do you guys by brand new M3's at 18 and 19 years old. You have to have parents hooking you up some how

Many of you say you bought it yourself but who makes that kind of money at 18?

I am not saying that all these guys have good jobs, but I know people that are excellent Software Engineers at the age of 19 or so. They all make great money. That's just the people in my field though. I'm not sure about other fields.

Also, it is possible that they may have been saving money since they were very young.

Many of you teenagers out there with BMWs are the age of my kids. I'm 48 and I didn't get my first bimmer until I was 41 but I got my second this year. I could have afforded one earlier but I wanted to get the mortgage out of the way and still be able to eat.

23... when I bought... 24 now....

and around here I don't think I see anyone in a BMW that isn't balding... I thought I purchased at a young age but Man... I am shocked to see how young everyone is..... More power to you!

I have to get to Cali!

Send a message via AIM to vrracr
here's how i did it: when i was 19, i bought a '95 M3 (this was in 1998). i didn't have enough credit to get it on my own so i my sister actually co-signed for me. i lived with my parents then and was in school (paid for by scholarships/parents) so i really had no expenses. i worked about 30 hours a week and was easily able to make my $500 car payment and $200 insurance payment. the rest of my income was used for going out, etc.

times have changed a lot since then. i graduated and i now work my a$$ off to live the lifestyle that i enjoy. of course, being married and having two incomes helps, but i own my own business too.

although i had some help along the way, i was taught to work harder than the average person if i wanted to stand out and make something outta myself.

safeer
