i think its financially irresponsible to live in California period!

That is somewhat of a joke, but seriously, i cant see myself working as hard as i do and my dollar going nowhere. Especially when i can do the same elswhere and my money goes 3 or 4 times as far. You guys do have nice weather though!

Median price for a house in Irvine is reacing $750,00. For someone making $200,000+ a year it'd be somewhat financially irresponsible to own an M3...The insurance and upkeep plus the monthly payment and mortgage would basically mean nearly 85% of your monthly take home goes to the car and the house. A little too close for comfort if you ask me.

Rest of the country its another matter.
