The "....hi I'm a newbie, I just turned 16 and I drive an SLR McLaren benz" tread
Is anyone else sick of seeing these kind of post??? well, I am.
It seems like the age group of having a benz is getting younger and younger. It seems like a person that has done well for himself will have to get a Bentley GT to gain better status these days. I remember posting at the BMW and Audi chats saying how young I was driving an M3 or an S4. I thought I was so bad A$$ that I even developed "ebonix" talk at the time.
This seems to be a common trend in a lot of forums (i.e. Porsche, Ferrari, BMW and yes, even Bentley). Some kids even go to the extreme of posting their dad's car as their own (i.e. Eric Tu from the W220 BenzW0rld forums). Kinda embarassing when people find out that it was your dad's car and you didn't even have a license at the time.
I'll be the first one to admit, I thought it was cool back then to state a point that:
Yes, I'm 17 driving a car that an average working person could not even afford.
Yes, I drive a benz and I am still in High School. yada-yada-yada.
I get a lot of Hoe's because I'm so young and ballin' with my high dollar ride.
Well, it was as cool as I thought it would be. Some people were annoyed and some people felt unaccoplished becase they had a lower model car and they work their A$$ off trying to get a car in that brand. Today I realized I was wrong and stupid for stating such things. Today I work hard everyday and these things doesn't seem to matter anymore. Maybe because I'm almost 30 and married.
Truth be told, driving a hot car when you're young ain't all that. A good friend of mine pulled me down to earth and advised me that "some one will always be luckier and wealthier than you. You look like a shalow fool"
I took it to heart and felt really embarrassed. Kids, don't let this happen to you.
