Hey.... be happy your car is in one piece and still drives... You start spending all this money on BS... and when your car is sitting in the driveway and doesn't drive your system wont be that cool...

I wanted a system in my car but today I spent over 800 dollars on a major tune-up.

:banghead

just save your money and spend it however you want. did you pay for your stereo in full or did your parents pitch in a little?

its your money, not theirs. i see how there's a problem though since you have to order most stuff online with a credit card, but maybe a friend can help you out

my mom let me buy my M5...then again im 25 and have been out of the house since 18. haha being a grown up is cool. listen regardless of the fact that it is your money, your parents set rules for a reason. they provide for you ie...shelter and food and clothing oh and a BMW so respect thier wishes until you move out or you pay them rent. as far as decieving them it is not a good idea. wait until you move out of the house to buy those items for your car. save up for now though.

You should be greatful you're not driving a Dodge Neon....or a rental Mustang V6 b/c some stupid lady in an Xterra t-boned your Camaro........


Take your time with your mods. Besides, a 1000$ stereo system is just retarded. Pay someone to blow your brains out......

lwebb is right. Chill while living at home. Once you are on your own, spend away.

Just consider how lucky you are to be driving such a fine car so early in your driving years. Stock BMW's blow the doors off most other first drives. Think about driving something practical and unfun like a Civic or a Tercel (or worse).

You've got a great car, be content. Enjoy your ride!
