Is this why you guys have nothing better to do than hate on our 300hp DDs and 400hp sports cars? Fox and the Grapes ass niggas.

Was he in London, by any chance? If you're into cars at that age, you have to be poor as shit not to be able to afford at least something, but it's just not worth it in the capital.
But in general, yeah the cars we have access to, especially young drivers, don't hold a candle to what you lot can have. There's a mate of mine who reckons he almost died the one time he drove his mum's Astra 1.6 (it was so low and fast), and that putting a 1.8 in his Corsa would result in some sort of supercar.
Main problem is that insurance is just so damn expensive until you hit, like, 25.
>There's a mate of mine who reckons he almost died the one time he drove his mum's Astra 1.6
Funny, I made a cheeky joke about him "not even having a 1L Astra".
He was honestly a breddy cool guy, not hating on UKbros. Just wondering if this stems a lot of the "Murrica, why you need so much powwwaaa" threads.
>mfw Americans live in the most car dependent society on the planet and their living conditions become third world tier when they don't have access to cars, yet they act surprised and shocked when cars aren't utterly basic commodities and being obsessed over in the rest of the world
I'll get tons of shit for this because it's a car board, but Americans are the freaks, not the rest of the world.
You're right. I've mused over that for years. Public transport is scarcely implemented and when it is, it's usually a massive clusterfuck that results in needing to get up an hour earlier in order to get where you need to be on time. City structure is usually based on one strip, while being somewhat central to the town, is usually miles away from housing. Anyone who wants a non desk job is going to the boonies where transit doesn't exist.
I couldn't even bicycle to work, because it's 25 miles away.

For real though, sorry yurop bros, at least your public transit system destroys ours, and free health car and all that. I'm a little jelly of all that.
>free healthcare, gas+insurance isn't all that expensive
>own two V8's, a 4.6L mustang and a Lexus LS400 comfymode DD
>in university full-time and pull in 20-25k a year
>most other people my age don't even have their license
I just don't get normies.
They act like I'm a freak of nature because I can work hard and afford nice things.
>tfw I own 3 trucks, a car, and am building a car for lemons while shopping for more cars for drifting and hooning
