fwiw I have a SEP and a fairly expensive car. It is possible to do both you know [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

jfish,

Nice.

[/ QUOTE ]

Retard alert. What is a "SEP"?

[/ QUOTE ]

SEP-IRA.

It's a retirement plan for self-employed individuals. For some reason, the maximum contributions per year aren't the usually $15k or whatever a 401k is, but rather $45k.

It's by far the greatest tax break that professional poker players can receive and I'd guess 90% of them don't have one.

It's for the USA if that wasn't clear. Non-US resident need not care about any of this.

[/ QUOTE ]

By far? How is a SEP IRA "by far" better than a solo 401k?

[/ QUOTE ]

Same thing more or less, I was grouping them together. Obviously a solo 401k is better if you make under $250k a year as you can sock away more. Problem is they aren't as widely available.

sexy! now slap a turbo on it!

[/ QUOTE ]
335 is already turbocharged

[/ QUOTE ]

oh. i just saw 5.8 0-100km/hr or something and that seemed slow for turbo. dint know

[/ QUOTE ]

its actually 0-60 in 4.8 in all the car mags. and you can slap a $1300 chip/ECU add on that will give it 60-70 more HP and 90-110lbft of torque instantly. once thats in, you are talking 0-60 in 4.5 or less and high 12's (with good traction) in the 1/4 mile. a sick fast car.

congrats, jfish, PM me for more chip info [img]/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

[/ QUOTE ]

There's no way that car runs a 4.8 0-60 unmodded. It's a nice looking car don't get me wrong, but it's not that fast.

http://www.bmwusa.com/vehicles/3/335...e/techdata.htm

If it ran a 4.8 it would be in m3 range and bmw would never allow that to happen. Granted we can shed off a few tenths and assume bmw is underrating the car on its website, but I still doubt it does 4.8 unmodded even though it has the stock turbo.

Don't want to sound like a hater I really like the ride.

[/ QUOTE ]

You're wrong. It does perform like the previous year's M3 because they came out with an even better M3. I almost bought this car a few months ago, and it's the most amazing car I've ever driven.

i think that the way metetron handles his money is great, I am the same way. however some people like cars, and want to enjoy luxuries when they are young. Who are you to say it was a bad idea to spend the money, regardless of his financial situation.
