If I had it to do over again... I would have just gotten a beater in High school and paid for it with my own money - rather than wait til 22 for a new car.

This turns my stomach... In India, only about 2% of the population actually owns a car and this dirt-bag ruins a BMW because he can't fit his friends inside...

A V8 in the same price here? Not happening, unless his father would've put money on a pre-owned one

Punk

What an entitled punk. His parents should make him take the local city bus everywhere. Idiot.

You have to blame the parents as well - for raising such a punk. Affluenza anyone?

Bottom of the barrel. Anything less than a 328i with an M Kit should be pushed in rivers or off cliffs.

My kids bought their own first car and understand the connection between hard work and good money management. This dad did his kid a disservice.

If you lived in India, you might own a $10k car if you even had one. This 320d is probably the equivalent of driving an S class in America.

So youíre saying just because itís a $60K+ vehicle in India, a 320d is worth buying there?

Come on now.

Disgusting indeed.

This guy needs to be flogged publicly. In a country where a large percentage of folks go to bed on empty stomach; this guy has the temerity to indulge in this audacious behavior.

LOL. Man if you were my kid, I'd have bought you a fixer upper 10 year old Chevrolet and a Craftsman tool box with a Craftsman starter set of tools and a Chiltons Repair Manual.

Mother's know best...

Pitiful.

The hell they do..

Thanks for the offer .. I'd have pushed your Chebby into a river or fixed it up first and then left potholes on your lawn.

I began volunteering at 15 and worked jobs from 16. Didn't get a license til 17 and I had the money to buy a beater with my own money at 18 and gladly would have but for the promise of a new car. My over protective parents kept me off the street for a few years with their gambit. Shrug.

Chevy lumina. Omg what a crappy car. Driving a lumina is about the most pitiful thing I can imagine. I've never owned a Chevrolet. I'll fix a Ford and have done so.

When I rolled up in my E30 M3 my mom said.. oh my god you went and bought that little car !

No mom. This ones a little nicer.

Indian also and completely agree with your sentiment. Such a wealth disparity, and to see the few with all the money behave like this.
