I can relate to you. I'm 20 now and I got an M3 last year when I was still 19. I was lucky to have my dad co sign with me for the loan and I make all the payments, including the gas and everything else. It's been really fun and working out pretty well. I don't even make $20,000 a year from my job because I still go to school, so it's been a little hard. But I live with it since I love the car.
I got into an accident a couple months ago, it was pretty bad. It was totally my fault, I was out with my friends in the backroads. I did about $9000 of damage and it's getting painted right now. (I'm painting the whole thing super sonic blue!!! I can't wait) But I was lucky my dad had the cash to pay for the repairs because there was no way I would have anything close to that much money all at one time. We didn't go through insurance because I'm also on my dads plan and they will drop us if someone gets into a one car accident!! sucks!! But I'm just lucky. But if you're making that much money, you should not have a problem at all. I'd do it. You're only young once. Imagine what you're goin to be able to tell your kids when you're old!!
