    wow this thread was started ages ago.

    anyway. i'm under 20, pay for everything myself and didnt rob any banks haha


    i got my 06 wrx my senior year in highschool when i was 17. i sold my old civic and used some of the cash as my down payment. i'm paying 300 a month for the car and 130 for insurance... and roughly 130-190 on gas a month depending on the insane prices. i also pay for all my mods unless i receive some as birthday/christmas presents.

    anyway, at the time i got the car i was a hostess at a restaurant making minimum wage plus tips.. working anywhere from 12-20 hours a week. so that wasnt helping too much. back in march of 07 i started working at at&t at 11.01 an hour.. which after several raises has bumped up to 12.18 an hour

    so yeah.. no bank robber here.. just getting paid a ridiculous amount to do nothing.

    im 26 and bought an 06 sti. just put 1k in mods too. I pay for everything myself, im a licensed plumber making in the 30 dollar an hour range. i pay 450 a month for insurance and I actually drive it around 90 miles a day commuting to work so you can only imagine what the gas bill is. combine that with a mortgage and honda civic.

    Ditto on that one! I paid cash for mine about a week before my 23rd last summer. I work full time/student part time and pay for everything. I had cash saved up that my grandmother left me when she died.

    yea

    I got my wrx brand new when i was 18, at first my parents wanted me to make payments on it, but they decided that i wouldnt ever make enough money so they just bought it for me and paid for my insurance. I almost convinced them to buy me a STI but the insurance for it was like almost double that of a wrx. boo. They told me if i ever wanted a sti i would have to earn it myself.

    Angry How Old? How Afford?

    I'm 40 and I have a job but with gas prices being what they are I can't afford the mods I want. I have to pay Uncle Sam $2400 for taxes this year. I wonder what mods I could have gotten for that.

    I'm in my early 20's. I live at home and I still have my parents pay for everything. I got my 07 STI after I wrecked my 06 WRX LTD street racing (dont hate it was safe to do at the time).

    My parents wanted me to get a civic or something slow but I guilted them into getting me my 07 STI. It's not like I didnt derserve it I got straight C's all through highschool.


    I work making 10.50 a hour which IMHO means my parents should pay for everything. It's not enough money for me to have my cool whip and it's their fault I'm accustomed to such nice things.

    They pay for my gas, car, car insurance, mods, and also rent/utilities. All my money from my job goes into my spending fund since they've had to cut that back (they were giving me 100 bucks a week but cut it back to 75 since gas prices went up...stupid).

    I derserve my car since I've been through some hard times so please dont get on here and preach on how I'm spoiled or what not.

    I turned 25 today and paid for my 02' Scooby in full up front. I saved up over last winter, and waited until I saw the right car appear in SLC for sale last summer

    haha, I was a c roll student myself , so my first car on my 16th bday 03' was an 01' M3. Hooyaah C student rewards. ....i then sold that for 17k in 06' spent 7k on an Integra (which was used in a trade for wrx 3 mths later 'teg+4k got me my rex) , I put 4k in 401k last yr. and put the rest in savings. My parents gave me a good boost, but everything I have now Ive earned myself.Saving money and making investments in things like 401k works wonders.
