    I just got my temps after a vigorous studying of the DMV handbook. My parents bought me my first car and i didn't even ask them too. The car they bought me is a lime green Mercedes Kompressor. Junior year in high school is when ill get my license and start driving it to school. My real question is that does it make me seem like a jerk to have a Mercedes sports car in the midst of all the fords and dodge's that other kids have? I mean I know that Mercedes is a "rich mans" car but im not the type who would show it off. I just want to know the opinions of other people because I really don't want to seem like a jerk.

    Like, here?
    Wow, that's bloody lucky. When I get my license apparently I'm getting a 10 year old (though barely used, so they say) 4Runner. =P

    honestly ask for a crappier car there's like a 95% chance you will wreck your first car atleast a little bit

    You won't be a jerk, if people call you a show-off or a jerk, then they're just being haters. F them and enjoy your life, it's not your fault you were born in a wealthy family.

    On the one hand,
    yeah, you're gonna look like a jerk.

    On the other hand,
    girls your age love themselves a good jerk.

    Drive safe.

    Pretty much asking to get keyed / slashed. Other than that you'll be fine.

    On your 15th?? You lucky bastard xD here in the netherlands you have to be 18 to drive a car (still 7 months for me [​IMG]) and if you paid the mega amount of money for a license you still have to buy the car xD

    So no, people will think you are some spoiled kid etc.. But who cares you ride in a mercedes, girls will love it [​IMG]
