WHOEVER buys their kis (18 and below) a 335i is plain dumb...unless they have previous experience with maybe controlling a car and understanding many things about them (not to brag, but like myself, never gotten accident or ticked. knock on wood) To get an unexperienced KID a car that can beat e39 m5's (when its chipped)is not only dangerous to the kid but to people around him as im sure he will think he knws everything about driving and start weaving in traffic...
my .2 cents!

There will always be very young kids with "rich parents" driving expense and/or powerful cars. I've realized there is nothing I can do about it other than strive to be one of those "rich parents" myself.

By the time I have 18 year old kids (expecting my first child in January 2007), I should have the means to buy them almost anything they want. But I plan to have enough restraint to wait until they have finished college before I get them an expensive car.

I went to college out of state and didn't even have a car (at least not until I finally saved up enough to buy my own in my junior year). However, I went to school with many people who were very well off. It seemed every other car was a BMW 3 series (so my 6 year old used Mazda RX7 definitely wasn't turning any heads). But I had a strong appreciation for the car because I truly earned it (summer jobs for 3 years). There was even a student who had a brand new Dinan M5 (E34), a few Porsche 911's, and a Lotus Esprit Turbo.

In the end, each person will respond differently to being given nice things and there are certainly a few that will behave responsibly with a fine automobile. The problem is there are seem to be far more teens who abuse the things they've been given.

Geez. Stop filling up at the haterade stand
i disagree. while i think its very important to teach your child life long lessons, buying them whatever car they want when they are young will simply make them spoiled. eventually they have to move off your paycheck unless you want to support them forever, so how do you make them appreciate a fine automobile like a bmw? You make them earn it themselves

he is a hater regaurdless of what you say. stop worrying about what everyone else drive and step your game up. you read what it said. "im sick of 18 year old pricks driving 335i's" he didnt say hondas or toyotas etc but a car faster than his that he probably cant afford.

It's all relative, one parent may spend a large part of their income on a honda civic and another may spend an equal percentage income on a new 3 series. by looking at it as a fraction of their income it becomes less absurd; the kids are simply fitting into the formula. The problem lies in how people see them in comparison to themselves. adults driving any car are going to be upset when a kid drives a nicer car in any situation. Solvency lies in realizing that every person has different amounts of money and it is ignorant to criticize a group of more privlidged offspring for simple recieving a car their parents deem reasonable. I think the problem that is really being addressed is much deeper than just cars; the problem trully lies in a general degredation of civility in american society. now, unlike some kids on this forum, i am telling you that i am a 20yr old who got a new 3 series coupe in high school only to hopefully show that there are kids who see and understand the issue at hand. the look on adults faces when i would pull up next to them in a far more expensive car is more than heart wrenching; it crushes you. you feel like the exact stereotype that is being imposed upon you. i think this topic has a lot more life in and would enjoy discussing it further.

i'm hoping this might bring some insight on to how varying kids opinions can be on this subject. it is by no means black and white.

90% of teens dont truely appreciate the things they get. This is especially true when kids are spoiled with $50K gifts they dont deserve. The other 10% have probably worked their ass off to get it and love it. I'm 21 and have had my car for 14 months.

True,True, I have a friend who always makes fun of me since I have to pay 325i for 400bills monthly by myself working at Fry's Electronic and he has a 07 5 series which he doesnt have to pay at all since his parent already pay up for everything for his 18th B-day. Damn those guys are just spoile little brat.

the irony is that all of us drive like a maniac at one point or another in our life. The thing is that we think it's okay because it's us; we know how to control the car and we have confident in it and that makes it okay. But when others do it, they're stupid. Funny how life works...

i'm 19 and own a 330i. i recently made my purchase after working 3 jobs, getting my real estate license, and then selling my first 6 houses. i do come from a pretty well off family but do not depend on my parent's support for my luxury needs. but i do agree with how immature drivers with niec cars are very annoying, stupid and dangerous to not only themselvse but anyone else aroudn them.

things are just becoming more attainable

like Oprah said kids of america nowadays all have a sense of "entitlement", "gimme this, gimme that", "i NEED new sneakers, ipod, etc.

but on the other hand some parents just have the money and feel that their children should have the best...

I'm 18. I drive a Scion tC to school. When i get back, i switch with my mom to get the E90 330i. I go to college with the tC and it is awful.

So you guys are really just hating on the dumb kids with the cars. I don't exactly not get any nice cars around. It's just that i'm in between having no nice car to drive and getting a nice car to drive. Not every kid is an idiot. When I'm in the E90 though, I like to get up to other E90/2 to see who's in there then if i see that the person is reasonable and nice, I'd wave. So far, I've gotten two crazy looks, 9999 old people or women or old women driving, and about 4 waves back. haha

Gamegates, i'm sure we were all like that at ONE POINT in our lives. It's just that now we've grown up and have a sense in what costs what and how hard some things to attain. I hate the tC but i treasure the E90! My parents are planning ot let me keep it forever and i think i will! I've been the only one taking care of it (ie washing, taking to service). I think this is why they bought it though, so they wouldn't ahve to take care of it. It is the first real car that i like that they'd buy so i'm glad i get the chance to do all this.
