You wanna know why? First of...there is no '05, '06 or '07 750iL coming out...so you're full of it. Second...the last time there was a 750iL which was around 01-02...they were MSRP'ing for around $92,000...so you are more full of it. Third, what 17 year old wants a 750iL when he could get anything else for $92k...so you're overflowing b/c ur full of it. And finally, what parent gives his kid a tank of car that could kill and cost $92k...so you are SQUASHED by the amount of BS you just laid up here...

That's fine...that I can understand...some parts buy the car, some help out a lil, some help out a lot, some dont help. But making your kid pay rent! Damn...at 17 how can you make rent, pay for insurance, gas...etc...when you're going to HIGH SCHOOL too?

Cant make the bills...do your parents evict you?

:evil:

Where the hell are you getting that kind of money? Why are your parents letting you buy a $75k car???? :banghead: :screwy:

Yea....I hate you. Well, not you, but people like you. You know, the people whos daddy buys them a Navigator, H2, and a Range Rover just because they turned 18. You wanna know what my dad got me when I turned 18? A new starter and a new alternator for my car...awesome, huh? I'm not complaining, I really appreciated it, I needed the parts badly and am happy he got them for me. I to have pay for rent, gas, and insurance, so I understand the value of money.

What I'm saying is you should move out and get a job, stop relying an your dad, and buy your own damn car. It might not be a 7 series, but hell, at least it will truly be yours.

Those two pics mean nothing since you could have got them from Google and that's a damn small driveway for a MILLIONAIRE...and you're bro is gonna have 3 cars b4 he's 18?

i agree with you it is a small driveway thats why my dad bouqht a new hosue and we will be movin soon........any mroe comments??? just because you dont have it doesnt mean no one else can i hate haters.....i took these pics with my sidekick 2 camera no need for me 2 lie to a bunch of ppl i will never meet.....

posted by  millzmoneymaker

Please...if I had the money...a H2, a Land Rover or a Navigator would not be on my top 100 list of cars to buy...

Not even on my top 20 SUV's to buy...

I aint hating...just disbelieving...gives us more proof and we will believe...take our standpoint...we get alot of BS'ers and fools up in here...

posted by  NISSANSPDR

Those pics are pretty shitty for a millionaire... You are lieing, I think. And if you arent: being rich and flaunting it is no way to go through life, especially being a spoiled brat.

About the cars: get something cheaper and better.... try an M3. Still increadibly expensive etc, but a BMW. Or, for 20K less and better (IMO): an STi. It is 30k, a lot for a first car, but it has 300 hp. :2cents: :thumbs:

posted by  millzmoneymaker

Man I believe you, but get an import car and trick it out, its much more fun to do than mess with a bmw or w/e you are trying to get. Thats my personal oppinion. :laughing:

posted by  DSMDriver

A BMW is an import,and if millzmoneymaker can afford a 7 series BMW i'm sure he can afford to "trick it out"

posted by  carlos

I hate to say it, but I don't think he's lying. Check the picture URL, ir came from photbucket, and he's got tons of crap lying around. But, there's still a doubt in my mind, so lets have him post pics of his parents' cars.......

To answer his question, though. Buy an M5, take it to a garage, tell them to 'pimp it out', throw your daddy's money at them, and they'll do whatever you want.

posted by  Godlaus

Very true. I would get a M3 instead though. The M5 has 2 doors that I dont want to have to deal with.

I checked the URL also and saw it was from Photobucket, but that doesnt have to be his. So I searched H2 and Navigator on Google and didnt find that pic in the time I fealt like dealing with it last night. He might not be lieing, but that just makes me not like him any more... :ohcrap:

posted by  StiMan

yeah, I think he came here more to brag than get actual advice.

posted by  Godlaus

im not here to braq i want actual advice......i dont like m5s i like m6s thouqh ...... im not here to lie to you guys or brag i want to talk to you guys and build friendships on this forum...im qettin a 7 series or a s class now ebcause when i graduate im qettin a sports car my bentley gt coupe....i want a sedan now cuz i wanna take some friends with me 2..but yea if you guys want me to take more pics ill take them just to prove i aint lyin

posted by  millzmoneymaker

now you've gotten me pissed off. Of course you're fcking coming here to show off. Is that how you make friendships? By bragging your ass off about cars you earned by being alive?



how is this not showing off? Huh? You didn't need to say that, you put it in there just to make your piss seem like perfume.


then buy a beater late 80s sentra, if thats all you want. You want to be respected? then get a job, earn your own money, and buy your own car. Any guy I know who drives a shtty metro that he bought with his own money, takes infinite higher props than a kid whos daddy bought him a bentley GT.


Okay, so you want to buy a throwaway car. Why not just wait those 8 months? put that money into your trust fund, seeing as how you probably haven't nor will work a day in your life. Want a throwaway car? Buy a crown victoria x-cop car.

God.....Don't make me get even more infuriated at you. You're here to brag. That's it, I'm done.

posted by  Godlaus

^^^ why is this guy mad?? i didnt say anything to offend him or anyone else?? whats up with every1?? im just letting you guys know what im getting....i want every one to have what i have and i dont need to work because my parents just want me to repay them by getting a good education which i am... i donate money everyday to poor people i am not selfish nor am i greedy

posted by  millzmoneymaker

Personally I dont like the 7 Series or the S series of Benz...what about like an E55 Sedan...quick, sexy and has the space you want. Great car!

Since you dont like the new M5...hmm...maybe a slightly used M5 E39 (previous gen)

Those are my best pieces of advice...

posted by  NISSANSPDR

Sweet Jeezus! You are getting a Bently GT just because you are graduating from High School? And you are wondering why we are all pissed? BECAUSE YOU ARE SHOWING OFF! This is stupid! MAKE YOUR OWN CHOICES ABOUT YOUR 75k CAR! Also, if you are planning on making any sort of money, other than your parents, LEARN TO TYPE RIGHT! "Braq" is not a word. Niether is "qettin". Get a better attitude, stop bragging, and just ask a simple question or two. If I had the choice between a 7 Series or a S Class, I would probly go with the S Class, but if I could have any car now that is performance driven and must hold people, that would be a STi. It is not nearly as expensive, and it is better for what you want. :banghead: :2cents:

posted by  StiMan

I meant to say Japanese import. But it doesn't matter.

posted by  DSMDriver

First of all, Bentley Continetial GT's are so successful, they are pretty much sold out. The chances of being able to buy one is very slim considering the number that have left the showroom already.

Second, yes an E55 AMG would be a wise choice if you're looking for a fast luxury sedan.

And Lastly, I don't see how that tiny driveway can fit your brother's 3 cars, your car, and your parents cars. Also, the houses across the street don't look like big ol' mansions, which means you most likely don't live in a multi-million dollar house, like any millionare would.

posted by  moostang104314

of all the cars you could get the 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi WR1 is probably the best. http://www.import-heaven.net/images/specs/subaru_impreza_wrx_sti_wr1_02.jpg
It has 4 doors like you wanted. one of the fastest japanese imports, 320H/P, 310T/Q, 1/4 mile in 12.8sec@110mph, AWD. Just my oppinion, very cheap compared to the M5 or 7 series. only $54,000. This car also has a very large aftermarket parts arsenal. Finding one may be a problem but with Millions you could find it. If you cant find it go with the 2005-2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR Edition. I dont think its out yet in the states but will be soon. They are a cheap $34,000 and perform better than a M5. http://www.modernracer.com/images/mitsubishilancerevo8mrback1.jpg

I will be 21 and probably will have my first car when I will be 23 probably used tiburon for 7K ...there is still a chance that I will not... but I'm happy for the guy that he has such a great apportunity there to have any car he wants....Just don't killyour self ok?? :doh:

posted by  mumin

The reason everybody is getting offended is because they all had to work hard to get what the have, you are getting things handed to you. You will never truly appreciate that big dollar car cause you didn't earn it ! It's also a little hard to swallow a 17 year old kid driving a $ 75,000 car. You wonder why people get offended. Take some of daddy's money and buy a clue !!! :fu:

posted by  ode94

you would have thought after spending all that money on a fancy education he might have learnt how to spell...save the car money and spend more time at school otherwise you might not write out the cheque correctly....best of luck in getting a BMW, try doing a proper days work sometime and relating to a real man in the street. You might just learn the value of modesty and true friendship.

Some of you people are getting mad because a 17-year-old is richer than you, lieing to you, or showing off. Sorry I just find that funny! :orglaugh:

Sorry for using the English spelling, i am English and you are using a type of the same language...obviously i don't pick up on your spelling of color, tire etc...otherwise i would be here all day....but i still believe the kid should spend more time on his studies. :thumbs: :mrgreen:

Lay off him guys. He was asking our opinion on what to buy, no where did I see him throwing it in your face.
Also not all millionaires live in "Cribs" style homes. Especially if you're in the lower millions. His father is going to provide for him, I see no reason he needs to be ashamed about that (though if he turns into an elitist prick because of 'daddy's money', I sponsor your beating his arse). All he has done thus far is ask our opinion on cars, so cool the jealousy a bit, okay?


Your money situation allows you to look at some very nice sedans. My choices in this class?

2006 BMW M5
500hp 384 lb ft of torque
0-60 in 4.7 seconds (manufacturer est.)
Top Speed: 155 mph
$90,000
http://www.caranddriver.com/assets/image/1026200416519.jpg
http://www.caranddriver.com/assets/image/1108200415275747.jpg








...and the one I'm on the list for:

Cadillac STS-V
440hp 430 lb ft of torque
0-60 in 4.7 seconds (manufacturer est.)
Top speed: 169 mph
$75,000

Neither begin American production until September though, and you will want to get on the waitng list for either if you want one before the end of the year. Both are beautiful cars that offer in my opinion the best combination of performance and luxury.

The new M5 will cost 90k?

posted by  StiMan

That is what BMW is quoting. I would expect early adopters to part with six figures after you figure in first year dealer markups too.
On the plus side, the car sounds to be head and shoulders above the previous M5 though... And a BMW bred V10... :drool:

posted by  Gothicaleigh

I guess thats true.

posted by  StiMan

actually, If I remember correctly, he said he wanted to get a car to drive his frineds around in until he got his bentley GT. Any car he gets now is going to be a throwaway car in 1/2 years. THAT'S why I was pissed at him. he was flaunting his money around. Woulda been better if he said he wanted to spend 100k on a car, said he was 21 years old, and didn't even mention the continental GT.

NO..so can you all just stop scrutinizing me and just help me out....when does the 750li come out and when does the new s class come out? also....the new range rovers that are coming out...are they made by ford?? hopefully not look what ford did to jaguar :banghead:

Ya they are made by Ford. Jaguar has definately gotten better lately I must say. Ford can made OK products. :thumbs:

posted by  StiMan

ford also owns Aston Martin...

I wouldnt mind a DB9 would you?

posted by  mirot

Ya, actually. I wouldnt die if I had to, you wouldnt have to force me, but I would not like it as much as having a BMW 6-Series or something comparable. I dont like Ford products all that much. Thus I dont like Mazda's that much either, but, hey, thats just me. Ford can make some good products, I just dont seem to care for the company. :thumbs:

posted by  StiMan

ouch... your comparing a db9 with a 6 series bmw...

i was thinking more along the line of exotics... you know... "ferrari" and such :mrgreen:

a 6-series is nice though... but only the m6 will have a performance thats comparable to the db9

posted by  mirot

Disliking the products offhand due to disliking the company? Finding out who they are made by changes teh opinion of the car? Not liking Mazdas because Ford owns part of the compmnay????

Man, start liking things on their own merits, not on nameplates. :banghead:

other than who OWNS Aston, what makes it inferior to the 6 series?

Just another one of my opinions. I must say the new Mazda MX-5 is quite nice! As is the RX-8. The DB9 is a cool car, and I like the DB7 and the Vantage, but I just think when it comes to that kind of money I would rather have a M6.

You are right, I shouldnt judge on nameplate, but on the actual vehicle, and I am working on changing my ways (one year ago I wouldnt even take your SVT Contour seriously), but that takes time. :thumbs:

posted by  StiMan

and with the money you'd save buying the m6, you can purchase a whole other nice car.. say a range rover to go offroading.. :wink2:

posted by  mirot

I dont think many people take Range Rovers off roading. Maybe a Land Rover Freelander, but not something as upscale as a Range Rover.

posted by  StiMan

I'd just like to tell everyone, that there WILL be a 750iL coming in either 2006 or 2007 as a mid-life refresher. There are minor changes to the headlamps and tailamps as well as new bumpers. I actually think it looks pretty good. The 750 will only come in iL trim and is powered by a 4.8 liter V8 with 360 horsepower. Here are some pictures:

posted by  millzmoneymaker

just 360 bhp? I'd expect to see atleast 400 from a 4.8 liter BMW engine..

posted by  mirot

why did you say your new car is coming if you haven't decided yet?

posted by  windsonian

Those pics were of a BMW 750iL. It doesnt come out until 2006 as moostang said, so what do you mean by it comeing out "soon?" You havent even gotten your permit and you are thinking about a car earnestly? What is wrong with you? :screwy:

posted by  StiMan

incase you werent aware of this 2006 model cars come out in 2005...like the 2005s came out in 2004..

posted by  millzmoneymaker

From what moostang said I got that it was a 2007 model, I.E. comes out in 2006.

Dont think Im a dumbass.
