So did all you 1st Year Analysts go out and buy a low-end BMW or what?

So when you landed the ibanking job, did all you 22 year old yuppies go out and buy yourselves a low-end BMW or a low-end Mercedes C-Class or what? Or were some of you more conservative and chose to save your income instead? How many of you are on a BMW monthly lease? haha. just curious.

I cant think of anything I would rather do less than buy a car while living in NYC. Shit, I live in Philly and cant wait to get rid of the car I have let alone buy another one.

haha yeah i figured you don't need a car in NYC...but i also figured there were parking garages and I've seen some of them and they are FILLED with luxury cars. I thought some of them might be yours. Also, during my internships on Wall Street, the streets are either filled with taxi cabs or BMWs and Lexuses. Also, there's a huge presence of the small Infiniti sports sedans - somebody's gotta be driving them. Figured it was probably some of you hahaha.

Not yet but I'm planning to buy a BMW 1 series convertible with the license plate "SO HYPHY" once I get my bonus. There is just no substitute for a nice car.

Haha on top of lease/insurance you'd have to pay like 800 a month in parking (that could be low I honestly have no idea).

I generally see a 250K+ car at least once a week here. I guess that is something cool about the city.

I generally see about ten 250k+ cars a week in Dallas. I guess that it is something cool about no state income tax.

LIBOR! stop hanging out in Harlem! lol jk. But really, you should be seeing high-end cars far more frequently than that in Manhattan

What are you gauging WSO monkey's reactions under the guise of ridicule before making a big ticket purchase?

Wouldn't surprise me one bit.

Cartwright, I was just about to say I see 200k+ cars at least every other day here on Westheimer (Houston). On weekends... their out in droves.

Jun 28, 2010

I chose to buy a 13 yr old Honda and wait until I can buy the Fisker Karma (or equivalent electric sex-machine).

Jun 28, 2010

to guest1655: how the fuck is a 3 better than an E. E is the equivalent of a 5. if you're planning to drop 50-60k on a 3, you're a fool. get the 5 or the E

Benz is for old people. They don't make manual transmissions anymore and anything less than an AMG model you might as well get a fucking chrysler with leather seats.

If we're talking new im favorable to audi over bmw; but personally I'd like an e30 M3, they made shit better back then (the e28 M5 is better, but hard to get hands on, same with the e24 M6.) The cool thing about these cars is that they don't have a hook up for a fucking iPod because they were made for actually driving, not for entertaining spoiled 16 year olds.

Doesn't Chrysler own a part of MB? lol

Jun 29, 2010

do you actually care about how well a car drives?

If you did, you would know that the C and E classes are a POS.

Ill take an e30 M3 any day over a new C or E class. In fact ill keep my old e46 over any of those. Why the hell would anyone drop 50-60k on a 3 series, when you can get a 3 year old pre-owned for less than half the price.

Strictly Beemer, Benz, or Bentley.

I guess you like to be driven, and hate to drive

HAHA for thinking piece of shit chrysler owns daimler. They had a spectacular merger failure, and germans sold off chrysler to cerberus.

Jun 29, 2010

Who cares, I drive a 1998 Nissan Altima, It takes me from point A to B thats all that matters.

Jun 29, 2010

The only good thing about owning a cheap car is you have no hesitation to ghost ride it.

Doubt you would catch me ghost ridin my RR Phantom.

If you are looking for nice cars, head to Atlanta. Its stupid down there. It's just a huge car focused city.

Regards

Jun 29, 2010

There are silly looking rims on every truck in Atlanta, its disgusting.

Jun 29, 2010
