so i picked up my new '03 is today and it's sweet. well i'm 22 and am graduating in two weeks with a job starting in january. i'm single, living at home and working a decent job - affording the IS was not too difficult at 3.9% financing and after a decent downpayment...

well one of my parents' friends says to them, "gee it took me 50 years to get my first lexus." Another said, "Wow sure looks like his job is paying off quick"

SHUTUP :bitching: Just because I'm single and can afford to quasi-splurge on a decently priced car doesn't mean you freaking have to make me out to be some spoiled rich punk. It's not my problem that you rushed off to get married at the age of 19 and have been blowing all your money on your wife instead of cool toys since then. Do old people just not understand that this car is a standout in the lexus line?? Do they really think it costs $60k like the LS430?!? Granted it's a nice car, but it just pisses me off how that name carries so much pompous fluff with it... rather have it badged as a toyota i think :roll:

ok i'm pissed and just wanted to tell everyone :lol:

I'm 26 and I still get the "how-the-hell-can-you-afford-that-car" look. Oh well, what can you do? :roll: I also don't like to tell people I drive a Lexus since most of the time it's a conversation killer. :D

Bruvva get used to it !!!!!!!!!!!
I'm 21, still living in my parents crib, and I get stupid comments all the time. I worked my ass off since I was 16 for this ride, and now I get stupid feedback. :eek:

But I realized it comes with the territory. When people first see you, they judge you on first appearance. They dont know your background or where you live or what you do. :shame:

So if they see a young, decked out bruvva, pimpin a LEXXX they automatically stereotype you. :pissed:

Geee, I wonder what they'll say when I start pushin' the PORSCHE 911. :chill:

i don't care any more, just seeing if anyone else was getting the same stuff...

and so i don't have to pay rent because i live with the rents... i busted my balls for 4 years in college and got a good job in i-banking. starting in january i'll be working 65-85 hours a week (volatile schedules...) so as far as i'm concerned, i've earned this car and i'm gonna continue working hard to pay for it.

point taken and understood, just tellin ya i'm not the one that gets everything handed to him on a silver platter. it's all good 8)
