Amazing how far we've come with car safety. I have to say $40k is a lot for a first car. But that could only be a small percentage of his income (as others have said). But IMO he should not be given the best of the best as his first car, he won't be able to appreciate a great car in the future. My first car was a beater, a 99' Civic coupe with roll-up windows, no power anything, and the radio didn't even have a tape deck let alone a CD player. I drove the crap out of the car and had a ton of fun none-the-less. It never missed a beat despite how much I abused it haha! As a result, owning my 135i now makes me appreciate it even more. In addition driving a slower car made me learn the limits of a car's handling much easier and it will make you a better driver in the long run.
