I don't have a problem with grownups, that earn their money, buying stuff like that but having kids that can barely drive and have no sense of fiscal responsibility drive them is a different deal.
1. I have worked in my family's business since I was 16. Now even while I study I manage also most of our contracts of procurement. I guess my average day is 14 hours - what is yours? And I don't get paid a salary for it.
2. The SLR was not costing that much. I don't know what it cost but it is used all the time in auto expositions so is a business expense. And it's not new but aged 2 years. My car I have now is a C-Klasse which was my 18th present but up to that point I have already worked since my 16th year without being paid.
What is it that your children do? Besides play XBox and hang in the mall?
You've worked a couple of years. So? It's ridiculous that a someone as young as you are driving a 600+ HP car valued at $450k.
Your parents are spoiling you.
As far as I'm concerened I've worked for every dime I have. At your age I was working my ass off at college with barely enough money to have a couple of cheap beers on a Friday night.
But hey it's just an opinion and I'm not advocating that your parents shouldn't have the right to spoil you. I just believe the old adage "spare the rod spoil the child" (and no I don't beat my son).
