When I was in my early 20s, I had a M3 and it was well over my head financially, but I was able to swing it, I loved and enjoyed the car, and it got me laid countless times. So it was well worth the investment. I could have done things differently but at the expense of living. In fact, that purchase helped give me the balls to take bigger investment chances and led me to a better place financially.

IIIF10III, this thread I believe was mocking the "what do you wear on your wrist thread", so don't sweat it. Asking a person for their gross income is a little personal and uncomfortable, even for the richest, and you won't get a straight answer regardless, so your quest is pointless. What's important is that your comfortable with your own finances and make the large purchase well worth the money!!! Congrats and Good Luck!!
Very well said!
