That render is amazing. If thats the future of BMW then I like how it looks.

What happened to the 4cyl turbo that was supposed to be in the M2? Now that only 6cyl options are being considered it seems like we'll see some type of 8cyl engine in the M3. I cant see why they would stick a 6cyl in the M2 just like the rumored engine for the M3 and expect to upsell customers to the much more expensive M3.

If you got the GTR, call Kenny Tran @ Jotech Motorsports in Garland Texas. He has the fastest daily driver GTR in the country. The only faster GTRs are two track cars. He runs anywhere from high 700hp to low 900hp through the car and its a 10 second car. There is a Greddy setup for your car that will make over 700hp at the wheels. Tell him Aaron the attorney sent you.

had a "real" job.
When i was 15, I was truly considering doing this too, but I always thought I'd rather enjoy playing on my own 360 instead of fixing/moding others'. Boy was I wrong lol, would've been so worth it now to have a lot more spendable cash.

Congrats on the success and the purchase, what colour combo are you getting?

What's funny is all this talk about investing. Just because you invest does not automatically mean you will gain.

Everyone I know lost value in their 401k's, I lost around 100k in equity in my house.

That being said, if you truly enjoy driving, you cannot put a value on the thrill you are going to get from a GTR.

Enjoy the car, most likely you will not get that chance again to have as much expendable income.

Different strokes for different folks

Just don't launch it with the VDC off.. (Which voids the warranty, destroys the transmission, and you'll be paying a nice $20,000 with those xbox's)

5600 a month take home

1452 mortage w/ tax & insurance
800 food cost
98 cell phone
462 for BMW 335i
112 for auto insurance w/ wife
1200 dinning out & living necessity (internet, water, tollet paper..)
240 gas
300 on Roth 401

If I know what I know now, I skip the university and save the 60K to build my own busineses. The education loan almost cost me 85k just to pay it off.

great good on your businesses
For 85k in student loans, you better be living like a king when in school.

i guess everyone has to do their time... yours is now !!! Sell 335i and get a corolla on cash... get liability insurance and pay off your credit cards and loans... when i was in school i worked full time and drove a corolla that i bought $600 and sold for $1100... ...now i've two paid off cars and a house that i can off anytime i want.... and am planning to get a vacation home soon.

Also... if your cars retail more than 30% of your salary... then probably you are doing yourself an injustice by owning it.

when a common man invests; he invests in stocks... when a wealthy man invests; he invests in bonds!!!

Here's my mantra about investing... its a lot like love... you cant win unless you have lost first.

more good advice. it REALLY is an injustice to yourself to do this. and if your home cost more than 2.5 to 3 times your salary, then you are also doing yourself an injustice by owning it. doesn't matter what your situation is.

I'm not saying don't save or invest at all, but you also can't be so dead set that you'll be living 20,30,40+ years for you or anyone in your will to use your investments.

Congrats to OP on enjoying life! You may or may not regret this later, but at least you'll have an experience that most will never have.
Exactly! You can't enjoy your money in the grave.

OP, I hope to read about you on Heavy Hitters someday!

not really, but right now we all should be renting in cali because is renting is a cash business based on real income (what people can really afford).

as demand lowers, supply goes up (this is already happening, there are scarcely any fools left for the bootom of the pyramid and a lot of actual fools are foreclosing) prices will continue to drop. add in unemployement, additional housing supply entering the market from retiring baby boomers (huge portion of the poplulation) and soon to be rising interest rates from the fed to combat inflation, and you'll see a significant price drop to levels last seen before the bubble.

remember, it costs twice as much to borrow the money as it does to borrow the house!

Home prices in a nice Cali neighborhood will NEVER go back to the pre-bubble level. Those that go back to that level will be in the IE/Riverside area, it's almost like Nevada except with a higher crime rate.

Wishful thinking. They also used to say that home prices would always increase forever and ever back in 2007. Pfft. Don't believe the propaganda.
