Hi hows it going....I am a 16 year old web-page designer. I am a senior in high school. I own a web-page design company. THe money is starting to become rather good. I have been looking into getting a is300. I recently priced one I liked at 35k. Could some of you guys tell me about how much my note would be if I put a 10k down payment? Also insurance info. Is it high to insure these beautiful pieces of craftmanship?

So i guess I might as well not get one though? Cause I cant afford insurance and a 35k car..lol

Invest the revenues from your business and maybe by the time you turn 18 you can buy a new M3


Don't be so quick to spend what little money you have.

Don't mention it... If you are only 16 and are able to spend $10grand on down payments, I'm sure you'll be driving your dream cars in years to come...

I'm a proud owner of a black/ivory IS300 with 17" rims. I've had it for a good 4 months now, and I can't tell you how pleased I am with this car. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Since you're a business owner, it would actually benefit you - you can write it off as a business expense. Make sure you lease it under your business name.
Enjoy

I would be careful about writing cars off as a business expense if you are self-employed. You are just setting yourself up for an audit. I was going to do the same thing but was advised against it.

Yeah - if you have your own business lease the IS and keep some the 10 large in your pocket. Lots of neats things when you own your own business and you lease stuff...like kick ass servers etc.
