In India, most people drive $10-15K cars, usually Suzuki or TaTa. This numbnut should be thankful for a free BMW. Parents need to give some ass whooping to this kid!

They're now at a total loss.

Either out of pocket or they have a loan to payoff.

and here I am telling my son that if he does well in school and is respectful and responsible, I may buy him a Honda Civic to send him to college. and a $4k one at that. he's gotta earn his own things.

wth is a parent doing buying their 22 year old a $40k car? maybe that's where the issue lays?

this will have to be out of pocket - Drowning your BMW because you want a Jaguar isn't a named peril.

Intentional damage is Not a covered loss under most insurance.

yep... and here is where the REAL test comes.. now that this one is destroyed..... will the parents make him walk... forever...? until he can afford to buy his own car?

I experienced that this morning. Someone had a brand new Infiniti coupe, for a 17-year-old. Seems dangerous.

They do have a loan to pay off, according to the vehicle records. Anyway the father's got some agricultural land he could use a part of, to pay the amount off.

Depends, what model are we talking about?

XE, goes for 46L to 53L INR, about 64.5K to 75K USD

Lesser if discounts are to be filtered in, but I'm talking base price + road tax.

I figured that much.

He needs to work on the farm to pay it back.

Was probably upset it didn't have a manual transmission. I'd have pushed it in too.

I'm kind of impressed he was able to push it all on his own, his parents must of been proud of how strong he is.
