Default Holy Impulse Buy, Batman!

My youngest brother called me last night.

He was driving and had just passed a cop, and while he talked to me ran it up to 140mph. He'd just bought an Audi R8 on impulse at a southern Cali dealership and was driving home. That car sounds amazing even over the telephone!

The cops tagged him twice on the drive home....

The guy is insane.

Pics seperate you from lame intrawebz yarns in situations like these. (two of car, one of each ticket, extra of dumbass brother).

Awshum!

Hmmmm...
Interesting responses.

Gay and retarded because you don't like the R8? Or you think I'm bullshitting you?

Or because the idea of impulse buying a 130k car and blasting from LA to Park City doesn't sound like fun?

To me, the whole thing sounds like a flat out blast, but you think it's gay and retarded... how puzzling. I would have thought people who love cars would have found it anything but gay.

Retarded and gay stuff...

1. Doing 140 on public roads while talking on the phone.
2. Posting about a high dollar car and extreme speeding without pics or documentation to back it up.
3. Two cop stops on the 1st night of owning a vehicle
4. Bragging about a rich douchebag family member, again with no pics or documentation.
5. Did I mention no pics?

Why? I dont see a need to ban this guy. He just needs to stop making fail threads about his douchebag brother, thats all.

+2 I can't stand hearing stories about stuff like this. I have a friend who's wife to be always has to talk about what her dad bought, or where he went, or what he ate for breakfast (he is "rich") Thats all I ******* hear out of here mouth. No one gives a ****, just like in this case. Congrats, your brother is rich and stupid. Unless he wants to give me some money, I don't give a ****.

My brother called me yesterday.

He was driving and he called me on his bluetooth headset. He was on his way to work in his Honda, which he bought used and has had for a while now as it's a reliable car. He got to work after a short while, having caused no unsafe situations for anyone and having not garnered the attention of any law enforcement.

The guy is sane.

LAME! You're not a real man till you drive your new $100k+ car at 140 around unsuspecting motorists while talking on your phone and get pulled over twice on the way from picking it up at the dealership! This site is full of lame *** losers

Not only is this a lame story, but smells like strong bs. You dont just walk into an audi dealership and say "I'll take that one in white please" like its a ******* geo. There is a pretty damn lengthy process, not to mention how ******* immaculate your credit has to be and how large your income to finance a car of that price. Unless we see some pics, this story is 100% bs.....

Default My apologies!

I am appropriately chastised, and I apologize for the lame thread.

I don't approve of my brothers actions, as I said, he is insane.

The story, though lame, is true.

You don't need credit to buy a car like that, you need cash and a direct wire transfer of the funds. He earned the money by building a business and selling it.

Again, I apologize for the lame post.
