It really depends on how much traffic passes by my corner.

I'll try to work harder this year so I can answer " Hey F10 owners, what are you sporting on your wrist?" .

It appears the prerequisite of owning a F10 is some pimp looking timepieces.

It's like asking a woman their age and their weight.

I wish I could afford an F10. My $80k E70 and my wife's $63k E89 are hindering my dreams! Great advice on here. Perhaps pimping her out, shooting the John's and selling their cars, playing the numbers and letting it ride while I secure my overseas income from uncle Sam might work for me as well. I was totally going about this all wrong. Thanks everyone!!

Based on a financial advisory I read, people should spend no more then 10% of their monthly income on a car payment(s). So at 60K a year, this is $500 a month max. So over five years this is about a 30K car at today’s interest rates. He is at ~20% assuming he put little down, however, if he is young and single, has no dependents, then why not. 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!!

Are these the same financial geniuses that bankrupt the banks and put the liberals in power?

For me its simple - when I am old I will drive whatever. Tomorrow is guaranteed to no-one, enjoy while you can. Some day kids will be your priority and you will want so spend everything on them. School, braces, vacations so when they grow up and spend to much they can blame their mother

I then went to a gun shop and traded the $500 for a gun. Then I happened to be walking down the street, when some former trader from my bankrupt bank is driving by in a brand new 550i. I couldn't let that stand, so I pulled the gun, stopped the car. Pulled the bastard out, killed him, and took the car.

Then I heard some other bastard is getting an M5 next week, so I'm planning to jack him too.

Gross Income = I eat what I kill.
Damn.... Can I have copyrights to this story it would make one heck of a movie

well said, but i still feel bad for IIIF10III, even though this thread may have had some other intentions.

i think IIIF10III has more disposable income than many others onboard here, even if they make more on paper. at different stages in life, priorities change, some things which one doesnt even have to think about right now are necessary expenses later.

secondly, there is this lifestyle thing. i.e a careless spender v/s a prudent person.

thirdly, a premium car a guy drives - does it have anything to do with the gross income?
i would imagine that some of those are owned by black money and some others due to inherent wealth. genuine monthly gross income hardly comes into the equation.

Somehow I think the answers will also be completely false no matter the anonymity.
