I work on the weekends to pay for some minor mods but yeah. My first car was an sl500 but a drunk driver hit me and it was totalled.
Hey man, not being a dick, but you're spoiled. I'm spoiled too, but not like that at such a young age. You've had some nice cars and that's awesome, but call it what it is. I've found that people have more respect for you if you can admit, hey I'm very fortunate to have parents that love me instead of just acting like it's no big deal that your parents would buy you a $60k-$70k car. Hell I'm 27 and my dad helped me get my M3. Keep up the good work though because I respect how you're going about getting the rewards you are. You have to realize though that there are going to be some that have slaved for many years to get where they are and they'll let you know how they feel about it. Most people don't start out with a SL500, followed by a P-Car, followed by a M3. I started in a '95 Ford Bronco.

I say as long as you appreciate your car to the fullest, that's all that matters.

I'm from the school of it's fast more than likely I'll like it. Better yet if it's fast and tasteful, I'll like it. If you have a 8 sec. turbo Bug or something GTFO.

Yeah I mean I am spoiled what I meant before was that I'm not spoiled in the sense that I get what I want when I want it with no rules...I work for it. Yeah, and know there are guys who have worked many years to get it and i have utmost respect for them...I one day wish to be able to purchase a nice car on my own too. But everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

I'm one of those guys that had (has) to bust his ass to get where I am today, and I have nothing against guys who have parents with the means to buy them nice things. I probably wouldn't have turned down an M3 or P-car if I were in their shoes. That said, I'm not jealous of them by any stretch, because I know that having to work for everything myself gave me a drive and determination that most young people just don't have because I never had a safety net.

navfaz, it sounds like you appreciate what you have. Just keep working hard and try to be as independent as you can. It'll pay off later in life.

^ Nice words
I am not jealous either, just find it strange a parent would buy their child a $60K car, well 3. That's all. Enjoy it, but I agree you should try and be as independent as possible. It's not a bad thing. Anyway, enough old talk.
