Motivate or Demotivate

I've been working for 3 days now in a new area and I've seen
-numerous phantoms
-mclarens
-Ferraris

You were born to the wrong family. They need to thank mommy and daddy.

I have a very good paying job, put a 65% down payment on my house, own several nice cars (not a lambo or anything, but still nice), but the most satisfying thing of all was I did it MYSELF. I never came from a rich family, and never got a dime for undergrad or law school, and never depended on anyone except for myself.

Sure I may not be driving a Lambo or Ferrari, but my Z4M is still the nicest car I see for weeks sometimes and nicer than 99% of the cars I see on the road. But best of all, I worked for it, I earned the money I bought it with.

Think of it as a motivator. 20 years old and driving an Aventador? Their lives have already peaked and they did nothing to get there. In a few years, there will be a void they can't fill with mansions or fancy cars.

True happiness in life is the journey you take, not the destination you reach.

First you picked the wrong parents, and then you went on and forgot to invent Facebook. Then you got really silly and missed the opportunity to go to China and block Facebook nation-wide and create a copy called renren. This is always what happens...

Alrighty, solved that one - always happy to help.

Oh, and btw, a building near my home has a rolls royce as well as a bentley showroom at the ground floor. I have yet to see a car on display there which I would like to drive. I am of course being blue-white color blind here, but didn't Jeremy Clarkson conclude that the 1M was more fun to drive than most of those cars you just mentioned? I bet one is soon coming to a second-hand market near you.

Little known facts about BMW: 1) The N54 is still in production and used in the current Z4 35i and 35is. 2) In a Z4 you can get sport+ steering combined with normal suspension etc by selecting DSC=off. 3) All Z4s with 19" wheels are still only offered with the worst performing OEM tires ever sold with a DCT equipped BMW (Potenza RE 050 RFT).

Actually, you should have spent more time working on your jump shot than posting on BMW forums!!!

Look behind the curtain, the wizard may not be what he seems.
