Somehow I don't see that promise being kept... unless you win the lottery.

2005 Subaru Forester XT. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:03-05_Subaru_Forester_XT.jpg)

It goes really fast, it goes offroad, it can move you into university, it's got more ground clearance than some mid-size SUVs, IIHS top safety pick and with Subaru's all-wheel-drive will take you through the snow.... what's there not to like about a wagon that can do everything?

(Also, what's so great about a status symbol wrapped around a pole anyway?)

I also do not think that will be feasible. Aren't Gallardo's like $225 000? Assuming you get $50-60 grand a year at your job after uni, especially with living costs, you won't have enough?

He probably thinks that 30 grand down will be enough to qualify for financing. Boy, is he in for a shock.

I would rather use the eventual ~$225000 for a house or something. Cars aren't reliable enough with all the repairs. Or for vacation use. Having that expensive of a car, I would be afraid to use it...

If you take good care of it (as I'm sure most Gallardo owners do), it will last for a long time and its value won't depreciate like most vehicles' do. If you have a family income of 200k/year, I'm sure you could own a car like that by buying 225k less of a house. It wouldn't be a financially sound investment, but it would definitely be possible and feasible. Personally, I'd much rather spend the money on travel. Lots and lots of travel.

I've actually thought about that and did some research, including talking to my dad. After school, most graduates get their own place and start to live more independantly, however i (nor my parents) have an issue of me staying with them. Furthermore, my dad has agreed to chip in on the price so that should make it easier to afford one. He drives around an rx350 so it's not like he's middle class or anything. I understand my situation is bit of an outlier, but nonetheless, it is possible for people to get a sports car before hitting 30.

So you are going to be living with your parents and having them pay for part of the Lambourghini? That's not quite the same.

And once you finally get your Lamborghini are you going to continue to live with your parents? Kind of lame to be able to own an expensive car like that but then let everyone know you still live with your parents.

If you do move out after getting it, then you are just using your parents and wasting 2 years all for a car that you could get in an extra couple years?
I'm not sure if that made any sense at all but I hope there is a point there.

You're getting a Lambo? That's it, I'm going to jettison the $25,000 C-Class and get a freakin' XFR. I'll have a hole in a wall apartment and a flashy car just out of college, just like my parents(No TV, no Furniture, but brand-new Italian car)

If you are referring to your future Jaguar, it is British not Italian.

I'm referring to my parents. Jaguars were old and doddery in the late eighties.

Ha! That looks way better than O'Bama's ride.

Better looking and faster, yes.

But Obama's ride is a tank.

Before 30, yeah, you'll get the odd person (mostly athletes, musicians, and movie stars) who can afford a car like the Gallardo. Two years after finishing your degree is a different story.

That aside, I hope your dad is willing to refinance his house. A bank won't just hand you a car loan for ~225k, unless your income is very high and you're in good financial standing or you can put a lot down.

Also, I'd consider a RX350 to be a middle-class vehicle. Pretty much a soccer mom van.

Median middle-class family income is what, $42K? Call it $60K, with $50K cash in hand.

A RX costs $55K with tax. No way a family of four with $60K household gross can afford that as a mommy wagon.
