Question!!!

Hello, I am a senior in H.S. and I was wondering if you think it is wrong that a kid in my grade got a 330xi for 15.5k. He said his parents got him the loan through a bank and he is slowly paying it off.I think it's alright jsut as long as he makes the payments on time. A few people I know are naturally irritated by this. But, just wanted to see what you guys thought. I personally don't have a car yet but, in the market for one and may use his approach (won't spend as much as him). Looking for your guys' opinion on this one. Thanks.

IMO, anyone that can drive with some intelligence (things like signals and using one lane at a time) can have a The main thing is that it doesn't go to waste being driven too hard and beaten on or wrecked. Oh, and he better not rice it out! (Pssst, look at my car list by my avatar! Shhhhhh!)

Not against it, but consider this. You get a 330i as your first car when you are 16, what do you have to look forward to?

I agree. It's good to drive a real nasty beater for a first car so you appreciate good cars for the rest of your life.

Not sure if this theory also applies for your first girlfriend or not.

My 528i was my first car and I got it when I was 17. I paid for about three quarters of it and my parents helped me pay the rest. Some younger people trash their cars, it's true. On the other hand older people trash their cars as well so it could go wither way. To this day I'm made fun of because my car is always clean. About a week ago at our college club drive my car was on display to attract people to join our car club. One of the members at our table opened my gas lid and said, "oh my god, how did you not clean under here. That's so filthy. What were you thinking?" That was said because everything is spotless on my car a majority of the time. I'm 22, have a 9 year old car I've owned for 6 years and people are shocked when I say it's that old.

Click on my signature and see the other side of it. I've had this car and only this car since I was 17 and I love it dearly. I'll probably still have it 10 years from now. What do I look forward to? Picking up an E92 M3 next October.

Bottom line is as long as they respect their car and don't beat on it too much I don't really care who's driving it. It would kill me to see it get wrecked or as witeshark so eloquently stated "riced out".

Who knows though, the kid could do something really cool with it.

Fair point, start w/ a car you really like, learn how to wrench it, keep it for several years, you don't feel the need to upgrade.
