I once knew a kid exactly like Alex/Upset Jim. He thought he was invincible. He thought he was god because his parents gave him everything he desired, and he lived in a big house with a swimming pool and a tennis court and a live-in maid, etc. For him, a person's worth on this planet had nothing to do with their generosity, their accomplishments, the adversities they had overcome...all that mattered was the size of their check book, and lucky for this person, his parents had a fairly large checkbook. This kid, too, had a "beater" of a sports car when in high school (a Porsche 924, to be precise). When he graduated high school, his parents bought him a Porsche 911 turbo as a *present*. He had the car for a total of 6 hours. Now, his residency is 6 feet underground at the local cemetary. It's quiet and serene, and they haven't raised the rent on him in over 6 years.
Take from this story what you will. I, for one, feel nothing but empathy and pity for someome like Alex. He must really hate himself and feel miserable to act the way he acts towards his fellow man.
: There comes a rare time when taste and money come together and culminate in the creation of a true customized car that looks like it rolled off the factory as a special edition, not a decorated christmas tree from MG TUNING (Rachael). I challange people to send me their pics of Z3's that flow as well as this one. Sure the upgrades ran into the 10grand arena, and dure the M price was surpased along the way, but the car looks and drives like a million bucks. One word "Sweetness"
