So sad someone your age is so concerned about IMAGE in So Cal! I was born and raised here and I don't care what anyone else thinks about how I dress or what I drive, they have to like me for the person I am. I live in one of the most expensive cities in California in a coastal community that was actually much more affordable when I first moved over here. My company is about 13 miles from my home and if I didn't buy my place when I did, today it would be out of reach for me. Buy a car because you researched it and because it fits YOUR needs not some dumb so-called-image! Some of our employees at work are your age and they are driving Honda's or Toyota's and they are not so focused on "Gee image is everything in So Cal". I drive my Benz because I grew up with family who bought them because of quality and owning for many years. When I got my first Benz the quality was still there. It dimished over the years but I remained loyal because I know the mileage you can get on the engines if well maintained from my past experience and the amount of driving I do. Sure other things go wrong but IMO the engines on MB's have always exceeded my needs. Get the car because you think of how it will benefit you not because image in materialistic California! Really, I am so over IMAGE. Who gives a crap what anyone thinks?? I am not going to like someone better because they have a BLING car. The person driving the Honda or Toyota could be a better person overall even if they don't have the BLING car. And by the way, I have dated men with cars costing over 100k and they turned out to be some of the most arrogant jerks with ego's as big as their wallets! NO offense to you successful men out there because I have also dated some really great one's as well. Difference, not friendly with flashy jerks, but still friends with the successful man who earned his nice car and is a decent human being. A car doesn't make who you are.
I think the main issue with our friend is that he is yet another example of a person with too much money, too little sense, all at too young an age.

Felicita e un bicchiere di vino con un panino.
