I'm 27 turning 28 in just over a month and a half. I put 2500.00 down on a 36mo. lease and my payments are only 480.00 a month. i think leasing is definitely the way to go. You don'thave to put down a huge down payment and you get a new bimmer every three years.

You are spoiled and full of yourself. What your parents have, they earned. They shouldnt have to buy you anything if they think you dont deserve it.

At any rate. Buy an E46. They are much cheaper now that the E90's came and you can get a great deal on one if you say the right things.

Get a used ZHP if you can find one. Just as quick and looks better than an E90 imo.

OK, fair enough, not all parents are angels. But just remember what they have done for you over the years - I'm told it costs $200-$300k to raise a child in the US or UK these days. (and I have 3...) That's two nice Ferraris...

Anyway - why an E90? That's for middle-aged geezers like me. Get a Z4 if you want a BMW babe-magnet.... ;-)

It's true you can buy Ferrari's instead of raising kids, but I bet your kids give you alot more joy? No? Well, they don't depreciate at any rate...they are a "growing" investment (if you'll excuse the punn)

An E90 is a babe magnet! They did one of those "study" things, and BMW drivers get alot more sex than porcshe drivers...cool ey?

That's very commendable. However, declining a loan and declining a gift are two different things.
