    I'm 21 the car I have currently would be £12,000 a year to insure for me to drive it but I got a part-time chauffeur for £10,000 a year and i pay the £500 insurance so it is cheaper to do it that way

    You don't seem to be aware how tacky/common it sounds to try and brag about money. Prime example of 'new money'.

    I know it tacky and I am definitely new money so I embrace everything new money stands for
    bragging and expensive stuff maybe I will change in time but i don't see it being before I'm 30
    but I am not going to drop £12k on a years insurance when there's a cheaper way to do it
    that £1500 is a case of crystal and a bottle of vintage cognac
    when you hit £30,000 in one go in cash unexpectedly have have no idea how to store you do go a little bit off the rails

    Oh dear, as if anyone would want to be known for that kind of behaviour.

    Go out and enjoy your money instead of sitting on a student forum bragging, it makes you sound like a loser, especially as half the people here don't believe you.

    My parents actually brought me up to respect people and value the money we have.
    If I make a lump sum like that outside of my normal salary then I pay a chunk of my mortgage off, because I actually have a brain and was taught some sense.

    I do respect people and I value money hence why I bought things that are useful
    as for the lump sum I couldn't keep it and i don't have a salary so I can risk losing out trapped in a mortgage I can't afford
    I'll buy outright when the time comes and now your sounding bitter that I'm a lucky opportunist rather than a part of the humdrum 9-5 set up the new world order wants us to follow

    No petrol = No driving
    No driving = Boredom for me!

    Advice: Never be tight with petrol! Drive how you wanna drive and enjoy it!
    Its annoying hearing people moan about the cost of petrol! Its super cheap if you look at it!
    £1.07 a litre now! Water is around a pound per litre, just under.
    And you look at coke or Pepsi, thats £1.20 for half a litre!
    The only reason petrol sees expensive is becsuse you buy lots of it at once!
    Its not expensive!
    Rant over!

    Trust me there is no need for me to be bitter, you wouldn't know that though because I don't post my bank balance/car values/house values/investments online because it is completely unnecessary.

    house value haha it sitting a rented carbuncle that I would want to be paid to take away from a buyer
    my investments are more in an advisory role to tell people what I did and that sort of thing
    I don't post my bank balance as that the quickest way to get killed
    and my car is a car I'd only advise simeone else to buy as it affordable

    Yeah the zone 2 flat that I currently rent out for nearly 3 times the mortgage repayments is doing me just fine, I think I'll hold on to that one a while longer.

    I use it as an excuse to go out for a drive without actually needing to go anywhere. I can just chuck on some comfy clothes, pay at the pump and come straight home Though I never let my petrol get low, never know when I might need to make an impromptu journey that might be out of the way of any petrol stations. I never really let my tank drop below (an estimated) 50 miles.
