I guess it varies from where in the world you live. If I wouldnt have bought my M3 with my own money in Sweden I would be a spoiled brat. There is this unwritten law in Scandinavia called "jantelagen" wich basically means that you should never talk about your wealth and success. It is considered ugly and inapropriate. In Sweden nobody ever congratulates you for doing well in life (with some exceptions of course). Jantelagen is one of the reasons Im leaving this country as soon as I finish my studies.
