    Oh god. You really need to get over yourself or you will not make many friends in life.

    And now you just lost all respect. Congrats on your money but no one likes a snobby rich kid. Be humble about it and you will go further in life. My suggestion would be to not continue on with that attitude though.

    Aha! OK, I will make a note of that, there is no sense in me not keeping my options open.

    If your father already has a Corvette, then this thread really doesn't have any meaning. He can figure out for himself which car is the fastest on a track. Post back with the results I suppose.

    Have one of your friends video a hot lap in each car, that would actually be interesting.

    You should sell your STI and buy an EVO. One less punk kid to raise my insurance and make Subaru drivers look bad

    Segue: Is it safe to assume that the title for the car and the insurance are both in your dad's name for now?

    Kid, you're 17, and fighting on the internet is pathetic, so I'll let it go, but I never passed any judgement on what your parents choose to spoil you with, no need to insult mine. Just be tactful and polite and we'll all play nice.

    Money had nothing to do with their choices, by the way. Instead of a car, they paid for my college (which is by far the better deal).

    Nobody's picking on you because you got your dream car as a present, it's more the attitude you present to others about how "priviledged" your life is. Since I would imagine you know very few people on the forum, commenting about their upbringing, which you know nothing about, is inappropriate. I could very well have extremely wealthy parents but they decided to teach me the value of a dollar and working for things you get in life instead of handing me anything I wanted.

    Like many of you, I waited a long time to get to a point I could get cars I actually wanted instead of it being just what I could afford - hell, my '11 WRX is the first NEW car I have bought for my car (wife always got the new rides because they were carrying the kiddies). I would have loved it had my folks bought me a car at any point, but ... instead I was left begging for the keys to mom or dad's car ...

    ... but too many of you immediately tagged this kid as a spoiled brat who would somehow give a bad name to Subaru and endangers others on the road. That ain't cool. All he did was ask an unrelated question and get pooped on by a bunch of you. Wasn't his fault his 'rents bought him a car. I'm jealous, but I'm not going to hold it against him. I'm a little disappointed in the overall reaction - this is not NASOIC where everyone flames everybody for everything. It would have been better if he had handled his responses better, but it's not like anyone was real nice to him either. Just my opinion on all this, but ...

    Not trying to start any arguments with anybody, but just an FYI: he was immediately jumped on bc he has made quite a few posts on other threads bragging about his...er, his family's wealth, getting what he wants and anyone who isnt as privelidged is less of a person, and about racing on the street to near speed limiter velocities bc his "friend was calling his a pu*** from the passengar seat." So you might foregive the kneejerk reaction that was recieved as it continues to be relevant.
