The problem isn't that you have money. I have no problem with someone who can afford to pay cash for anything, especially if they earned the money themselves. The problem is that you have to go around with an attitue that you are better than everone else who can't pay cash. You aren't better, you just have more money. You give all BMW drivers a bad name if you really believe that "It's well known that BMWs are meant for high-class people" A BMW is a high-class car but it is just a car. BMW doesn't care who drives it, it just costs more than your average honda so people who drive them are USUALLY pretty successful people. You ought to respect the car for the beautiful piece of engineering that it is and feel lucky that you have the means to buy one with no strings attached. You give yourself a bad name by turning up your nose at everyone else. I know there are quite a few here who paid cash for their bimmers and no one makes a big deal about it because they don't make a big deal about it. I'll get off my soapbox now.
