Not going to lie, but at this point in my life, there is no way that I would be able to afford the car without the help of my parents.

If only. Wouldn't it be nice if CA's fiscal mismanagement could be traced to one single, expensive yet beneficial program.

My story is: moved to a market supersaturated with used bimmers, have a good job out of college.

my story

Graduated with BS in Comp Science and rewarded myself with a 2000 S2000. Traded it in four years later for a G35 Coupe. 6 years later traded the G35 for my 2009 335i. Getting there ... it just takes awhile!
