That's how.
Wow. Color me impressed. And they actually pay you enough that you can afford a 6 (almost 7) year old 3 series? Score!

Didn't realize working for Lamborghini would provide the opportunity for one to ball so hard.

Just an opinion, if you're not doing $17,500 to a 401k (that is if you're employed and your co. offers one), and you're not doing $5,500 to a Roth (if you qualify), you have no business driving a used BMW 320i, let alone a 325, 328, 335, 128, etc. Purely based on demographics.

But you're right, there are actually people who don't contribute fully because many plans are top-heavy. It's the same old story. Those with real money have it maxed out and probably have done so since a young age, those without any real money live paycheck to paycheck, and participate partially or not at all.
