You were spoiled, though. What would you have to say to them? That you ended up making something of yourself anyway?

That's great...doesn't mean you weren't spoiled.

I dont think that getting handed down a bone stock optionless 6 year old 325i would be classified as being spoiled. Although to most people it would, in reality the prices for them are drastically low. Anyone can pick one up instead of a brand new Accord. Would a doctor (my fathers occupation) want me driving a piece of shit car that was not safe even though he can afford something much much nicer? Or how about this. Does a person who is lower middle class want their kid driving a decent car that is safe and reliable if they had the opportunity, as opposed to the one that is affordable but lacks the perks of the decent car?

Okay, you may be right. But if it were a brand new 335i, I would probably think different

what 16 year old is going to say no dad, I dont want your BMW please buy me a 20 year old honda civic that is running on spare tires. Its not the 16 year olds fault I bet if you were in that same position he was in you would say hell yeah thats awesome. Cant blame the kid (not saying you are) for taking it. Put yourself in his shoes

Definitely do the custom lambo doors. Some neon lights underneath would make it really stand out.

And be sure to remove the 328 badge BEFORE you install all necessary M3 badges!

You're one lucky 16 year old to be getting an e92 man. I got my first car when I was 17 (now I'm 19) and was a genesis coupe 2.0 but just recently traded it in for an '11 335i coupe. Not even a week into having it, I got a speeding ticket lol. So as long as you're careful and responsible you'll enjoy the beast you're getting

This. Looking back I'm so glad I didn't have a car this powerful in high school. Even as a mature and responsible as I was I would have not been able to contain the power of this vehicle. Be smart and congrats on the new rig.
