    Grrrr.... I hate comments like this. First, I started work at the age of 14. Since then I have had a career in technology and transitioned into business recently. Second, I want to clarify that none of the money for any of my business ventures has come from my parents. It has come from hard work and dedication. On average, I work a 70 hour week including my primary job (managing the development wing of a defense contractor), my side business ventures and my upcoming business ideas. NOTHING has been given to me. In fact the same day I got a job, my Father talked to me and told me that from now on I would had to pay for everything and I mean everything that I consumed because if I could get a job I was an adult. Rent, cable, computer, etc. Is this harsh? No. In fact, its what I am going to do with my children.

    I have VERY thick skin but the one thing that I will not allow to happen is someone accusing me of freeloading. I have met a LOT of people who freeload off their parents and get their cars from them and feel that they own the car because "they pay for mods". These people disgust me. At least give the credit where it is due - to your parents. Sorry, I put in the time and do what it takes without help from ANYONE else outside of emotional support.

    BTW - I just turned 22

    @st34lth. My wife and I know exactly how you feel about doing it yourself. We both started with nothing when we finished school. (we were friends at school) Now 14 years on we have our own house in a great area, we both have good jobs (bit of luck involved there) and we don't own anyone except the bank for our morgage. In fact we end up giving our parents money! How f!@#ed up is that!
    I wish you well with your project. Please keep us updated.

    Its really great to see all the support that you guys are offering. THIS is the reason why this is the ONLY forum that the project is posted and will be logged on! Thanks guys!

    Vizion : Its really great to see someone who understands man.

    Meddeler : Its great to hear about you guys and your success. I bet it really feels great to be able to give back to your parents and its something I am looking forward at being able to do. My fiancee and I live quite well right now and are both working as hard as we can and believe me I can tell you it pays off!


    ACleanSC4 : Thanks for your compiments too man. Unfortunatley (or not) I did get the Xenons on my car. Thanks AGAIN for the compliments and I look forward at getting you guys some updates on this project.

    =)
