I do love my daughter, very much, and she's going off to college. I just
want to reward her, she's gotten 2 Who's Who Awards, She's on the National
Honor Roll, National Society for High School Scholars, and among being a
varsity cheerleader since she was a freshman and a member of many clubs, she
holds a part-time job at Circuit City, and she's been on the A Honor Roll
every year since she started in middle school. The least I can do for her is
get her a nice car, I think she deserves it. And I'm not trying to spoil
her, she deserves a break, I don't want her to worry about buying her own
To the OP: The S4 will get her into more trouble than she can handle. Great
car but a trap for the inexperienced driver. And she'll have guys wanting to
get behind the wheel of said savage beast and show her what their high-speed
driving skills are like, after one too many beers. You want her there?
Get her an A4 1,8 TQ or similar and use the money saved to send her to a
reputable high-performance driving school so she can learn good car control.
If she's excelling at everything else in life as you say, then she might even
pull off a good result on the track ;-)
[again, assuming that the OP is not trolling]
Okay, I see where this is going now, and it's my fault that this hasn't been
clear. My daughter has been into cars and racing for a long time. She's been
driving since she was 12 years old, we're the type of family where we teach
our kids everything early, which is probably the reason why she's so close
to being one of those classic overachievers--Sorry.She's been racing on
local tracks for a year and she's overcome quite a few challenges--like I
said--she has a lot of extracurricular activities. Although this is true,
she doesn't want to race anymore, nor does she want a vehicle that looks
like a race car, she just wants an automobile that operates so aggressively.
She's not expecting to take a car out and 'street race', she's a lot smarter
than that. We both like the features of the S4, and she likes the way it
looks. I didn't mean to wake some sort of "sleeping giant," all I asked was
for you guys to let me know if anyone was putting an S4 up for sale. I
apologize for bragging about my daughter so much but...what's not to brag
about? I'm damned proud of her and if you were her father you would be too.
In that case, buy her a couple of Audi Car Club (or similar) 'safety
seminars' (also known as driver schools in a lot of marque clubs such
as BMW CCA) to go with it. That way, she'll at least come to some
appreciation of the S4's performance capabilities (I'd bet *you* can't
drive one well, either.) and hopefully not kill herself within a year
(Been there; taught that)
What are parents for? I've given her shelter, education, food, everything a
parent should give, I bought her all of her clothes up until she was 14
years of age. She's had a job since she was 14, I've never had to push her
to get one. She started out working at McDonald's, she is currently working
at Circuit City and she was recently hired at Toys R Us as an associate. I
understand what you're trying to do, and I'm sure I'd probably say some of
the same things. But my daughter is going off to college in California next
year and I don't want her to have to work to death because my family and my
wife's have always had to work a lot more than we should have just to have a
steady home. Our life isn't as magical as some of you might have guessed. My
daughter might have a lot of money in the bank but she bought her first car
herself, so I thought I should get her a car as a graduation gift. I have
seen a lot of parents go farther than an S4, so I didn't think this was
"extreme." And as some of you have expressed curiosity, I bought my daughter
a 2002 Audi A4, it works.
You guys are a bunch of hating losers. Just cause your life sucked doesn't
mean this girl's has to. An old S4 isn't that nice, actually it's cheaper
than a B6 A4. (2003+) Also, if you were talking about the B6 S4, well then
that's a lot of money, but far be it from me to judge. People have
different means, and can do with it what they want. Finally, I think it's
retarted that you're posting online asking for permission to buy your
daughter this car. Just buy the damn thing, do you really care what the
morons in this group say?
Care to explain why you quoted my post, f*ckwit?
My comments had nothing whatsoever to do with the argument over whether
the guy should be buying his daughter an S4 or not, yet you chose to
reply to and quote my post when spouting your opinions. Don't drag me
into your childish arguments.
At least I'm one of those 'loser morons' who realized this thread was
at its logical end *three months ago*! Ever check the date of the
post to which you're replying, idiot?
Been there; done that.
