I bought my F right after I turned 21 in cash. I'm now 22 and don't owe a penny on it.



theres no way in hell a 20 yr old can afford this car! (sarcasm:eek:)

I guess I am the loser here as I had to work my a$$ off to get into an F at 46. When I was 20 I was just trying to make rent. Dang, how do you guys do it?

is it me or does anyone else laugh when they see kids here, 18, 19, 20 going "i bought my isf with my money" "i bought mine cash" "im 19 and this is my 4th car e55 amg" etc?

if that is actually the truth then thats fine, but lets be honest here. if youre that young, its all your parents money that you call yours, or you lie and they bought you the car and you are trying to sound like a big man. for alot of you kids, most of your asses are and still will be in post secondary for many more years for you to even have the income for such a car.

and to the kid that said "google stocks".... google hasnt had stocks around $100 since you were 15. and you are not even allowed to trade until your 18 (here in canada anyways) and i bet the states is exactly the same. so that was a trust account your dad set up for you when you got older. so its not your money.

i dont know what is with people wanting to show off on the internet to people they dont even know, never will know, and probably never will even meet.

by the way i say all you "kids" but i am actually 23, i'll be 24 this october....i got my F when i was 22. i just know bullshit when i smell it.

also a big LOL to that..... you cant even have a ssn or sin when you are 11.
Actually i worked at my parents business. I played those stocks competitions in middle school and high school, and when i was confident enough i bought real stocks in my sophmore year.

You might think this is bs but i used my own money. I'm indian, my parents wouldn't buy me a car like this. Instead they recommended me buying a Rav4.

I dont agree that its BS.
Being from a South Asian background myself, I agree our parents kind of rule out everything for us. But, I do know people from various ethnic backgrounds in this country thats came here with nothing and basically started from scratch and are doing pretty good. Isnt it why we call it, "The Land of Opportunities"

Man in the past 2 years I went from lifeguarding for $8.50 an hour, nearly 60 hours a week during the summer, to running a business netting $5000-7000 profit daily, straight to the bank. Inevitably, my business closed, it was bound to happen. Any business that relies entirely on Google search engine rankings for revenue is bound to fail. There was no way I could compete with PPC advertisers in the same business, paying up to $3-7/click for a low conversion rate.

So yeah, call it BS if you wish, but I came from nothing. My dad supported my first year of college, and we weren't "well off" by any means, I collected federal pell grants and supplemental grants from the state to pay off my college. Then my dad could no longer support me and the big loans began. I am the luckiest person ever to stumble upon the business that I did and to turn it into something much bigger than anybody else could have.

My IS-F represents the hell I had to go through and my ultimate success, and you bet your ass I'm proud, and occasionally I will brag, but I try not to, nobody likes a bragger. Nobody even likes a SUCCESSFUL person. Everybody is inherently selfish, no matter where you came from, how hard you worked, people will think they could have done it better than you. I hear it all the time.

Call me a little slumdog if you'd like, but I prefer it that way. It was mostly luck, I'm not going to credit my own human ingenuity. But I did work hard...

So in summation, would I really be willing to make up an elaborate story in attempt to satisfy some delusion of my own? Or am I telling you a true story? Your inherently selfish mindset will encourage you to believe this is all a fabrication, so I will let it be.

dolla dolla bills yall.
