That didn't happen to me
Its not the car that is going to change the kid, its how he/she was raised and how he/she uses the car.
I was given an Infiniti G37S sedan as my first car (leased) and I took care of that car like a baby. All of my friends in 335s, range rovers and benzes were getting into accidents and racing the streets. My parents on the other hand refused to let me drive the car by myself for 3-4 months (even after I got my license) because they knew it was a powerful car ... much more so than the drivers ed cars I was training in.
I also don't feel self entitled and I have respect for cars... even my BMW now doesn't make me want to stop reaching higher. I plan (hopefully) to be able to afford, comfortably, a Ferrari of some sort by the time I'm 30/35 without any help from my parents - I envy my parents and want to go above and beyond without any of their financial aid after college/graduate school.
