I don't think this is legit thread. Even if a college student were given a free gt3, but has no significant income like most students, it would make sense to sell it. One could then buy a car like a M3 and have $75k left over.

Even the kids on the short bus know the proper verb is "ride". Now go do your homework.

Not really. If you are given a free gt3 as a college kid you take it. Who knows how long it will take to actually afford one in the future, based on possible career trajectory could be a while. An M3 is a far more attainable than a GT3 and definitely not as fun!

OK hot shot. Exactly how many spark plugs have you changed in your lifetime? Try this exercise: find your engine, put your finger on each spark plug. A man of your intellect could surely pull this off in two.....three minutes tops.

I've changed a lot of spark plugs. Me and my old man used to do it on his classic mustang as a kid. Strangely, it appears that my Porsche is powered by two small rotary engines in the back.

Have you touched all the spark plugs? How long did it take? Simple task really, just put your finger on them.

I really don't think my car wants to be touched like that, LOL. I envision therapy sessions in thefuture where my car is shown a model of the car and asked "where on this toy car did he touch you?"
