We are more refined. We go for drives because we have the ultimate driving machine (maybe not with too many ponies) but still it is a good car that you can enjoy driving and turn the heads of people to put smiles on their faces
Is it even fair to compare a Honda civic to a BMW 323i? My 323i was north of 30,000$ when my father purchased it new in 2000, and a new civic these days is half that. The 323i has more power, better looks, better features, and a significantly better driving experience. It disappoints me that people have come to the point of comparing a 3 to a civic.

I'm a 16 year old who drives an E46, but I must admit that it is unfair for you to say that civics are for immature teenagers. Coincidentally, most of the teens who drive civics happen to be immature, but aren't we all? A person's maturity level is NOT in any way effected by what they drive. The civic is a great car and any teen is lucky to have a car in the earlier stages of life. The civic isn't as much for "immature" people as it is for people on a budget. Don't be so hypocritical!

A Civic is for people who don't have a clue what they are buying a car for, period. No one in their right mind would buy that utilitarian garbage (same goes for the Corolla) these days. There are WAY better options in that entry level market now. It's not the 90s anymore where a cheap car meant buying a Civic or Corolla.

I dont know about you guys but every parent are the same. Its ok for them to say no to certain things you're going to do, because you will do it anyway. But there will be a problem when they just say yes and let you leave and do whatever the fuk you want, meaning they don't care about you. Now if you were to tell that you are going to ride a motocycle on the first statement they will flip fuk out!!!!

Tell your parents that you are late for your first Scientology meeting and that you are looking forward to the audit results they will provide you. Of course they will freak out (unless you are already a Scientologist*!)...

Then just say, "Only kidding... I just reset the DME in my car and need to drive it to reset it!" They will let you go after slapping you a few times.

*If you are already a Scientologist... Tell them that Tom Cruise called you and COMMANDED you to drive around!
