Oh thanks I must of been lost atleast when it was in the mkv forum it was a bunch of guys busting on a little rich kid that meant nothing. It hits the car lounge and its a pissing contest between who's right and wrong. You all are a bunch of immature kids to argue over somthing on the interwebz.
Ok, I meant to ask this for a very long time but what's up with TCL and My Little Pony reference??
"As anyone who has ever tinkered with an old BMW engine or looked out on to the wing of a jet can attest, pure response to engineering requirements can sometimes deliver just as much pleasure as a more intentionally aesthetic design process."
Rich kid, eh whatever.
If I was him and I had a dad who would spend upwards of $40k on my car, I wouldn't have bought a GTI and ruined it with bags, stickers, subwoofers, and glitzy wheels. Why not just get an M3, M5, S4, S6, A8, 745i, E55, etc rather than a hot hatch with cloth seats? Yes this car is bought not built, but then again modding cars to this extent, regardless of doing the work yourself is still a decision on how much money you want to dump into a car knowing you won't get nearly as much of it back.
When I was 16 my dad bought me a $5000 Grand Cherokee. Perfect first car (gas was much less expensive). This was generous of him, but it did really help me out. I was thankful that I had a reliable mode of transportation to get to my job, school, and go mountain biking. Then again, in the eyes of some I was a spoiled rich kid. Its all relative.
