    Personally, I would whip it in the bank. If you want to buy a car then you can do that if you want, its your money.

    umm don't...yet? save it! It'll come in handy when you're older and desperate for money, like me. On that note, if you don't want it, feel free to send it my way

    hmm watches seem like a worst investment than cars but i've read that rolex book could be a good investment but you need expert knowledge.

    You'll certainly lose less on a steel Rolex than an old banger - that was the reasoning behind me getting a Datejust instead of a car for my 18th. I saw it as an investment for life - a car wouldn't last anywhere near as long, or hold anywhere near as much value. A Rolex Sub or GMT is a pretty safe bet as it goes - it won't earn you loads of money, but it will hold its value, and you'll get immense pleasure from owning one
