Ok, no fighting or condescending, please.

I don't care if your parents bought a nice car for you, I'm honestly just curious! :)

You raise a good point. If your spouse is helping, let's include that as still paying for it yourself.

Paid on my own! But then, I'm married and 37. :p I'd have to paint a big red "L" on my forehead if it was anything else.

I don't think there's anything wrong with parents helping out with a car, as long as the whippersnapper has the right attitude about it. Some kids are just plain spoiled.

Anybody see the most recent Osbournes? With Jack's new BMW? They should use that episode as evidence for stricter licensing requirements in the United States... :eek3:

I'm surprised, so far! I thought that there were more kids on here with benevolent parents. Oh well, the day is young...

vtjim:I'm married and 37, too. Are you my evil twin?:confused1 :)

i had help from my folks as in they lent me some $ to make a better down payment. but since then i've paid them back every cent. so i've paid this bad boy off all by my lonesome. 21yr old, sadly living with parents, at least till i finish school.

Well, as I tell ppl who ask us "married 11 years and no kids?!?!" ...
"it aint like we aren't trying!"

The Mrs would love to be staying at home w/kids and her garden...

She's frugal as hell though so that's why I'm on the worlds slowest (and stealth-iest) MOD path evAR! :wiggles:

Oops, sorry. Didn't mean to offend with the kid comment! It's all relative. I work with a bunch of guys in their 40's and 50's. I'm in my late 30's, but to them I'm the kid!:)

Like I said, I didn't start the thread to cast any judgment on who's spoiled, or anything like that. Let's keep this one friendly!:)

Hells no! Just like I would *never* hate on someone as lucky as those who have their parents buy them cars. I admire all enthusiasts, no matter how they wind up there, scratchin & saving, or getting the keys on christmas day, it's all good IMO.

I got good parents, they were like "will will never compare you to other kids, so don't go comparing us to other parents". Even though they are the best parents evAR. ;)

Ok, you guys officially suck!:)
I make over twice the median annual income for an American family. Sometimes I think about what I could have if I wasn't paying for two kids and a stay-at-home-mommy....no, I'd better not think about that anymore!:(

I'm 18 yrs old and paying for the WRX myself, but I did need my parents to get the car in their name since I was 17 at the time of purchaseand have NO credit, etc etc.
