Your parents should be investing the money into your education and not your wheels.
Tough love, but very true.
When I was a kid of 15 my dad told me if I wanted a car he would cough up half the money but I had to come up with the rest, it was the best thing ever and learned me to respect money and my car.
BTW that car was a Ford Escort 1600sport and it cost £1000 at the time, probably the equivalent to £7000 today. A far cry from the $100k being discussed here.
