    Quite simple: because of the endless display of obsequiousness here with comments like "omg i want your life".

    It's equally as pathetic of these people as it is for "him".

    I just saw it was an annoying twat spamming WAYWT with "lifestyle pics"

    I'm showing points on my silk PS today. Sorry, :foo:

    Not sure why the red is showing up so tomato-ish on the iPhone. Actually darker...

    Fantastic outfit, as always. Just so you know, BMW (used to? still does?) sells aftermarket insurance on tires and rims. Mine cost me around $700 for 5 years. Unconditional tire change regardless of what caused the damage. Obviously, tires that are old don't count. However, my tires are run-flats and cost $300 to replace, each. Also, being run-flats and extra rigid, they do get damaged a lot. In 3 years that I've had this warranty, I've gotten 4 new tires and a new wheel from it, which would've cost me $1500 had I not purchased it.

    This looks kind of good but it would be ten times better eith a colored shirt and some brown shoes. Now the formality levels are clashing.

    The watch is great!

    I rarely button my collar, I just cinch it with a tie. Otherwise it's always 1 unbuttoned from the collar when I'm going casual - so it must be the collar length that's bothering you. It's a Gucci from the TF era...not as spread but definitely long.

    And I didn't pose for the shot... it was taken by a friend while we waited to fill up on gas. I'm not understanding the 'saying' :(




    Thanks man! Loehmann's plaza off of rt50. I'm unfamiliar with the place, just stopping for gas en route to a visit a friend in the hospital.




    Are you shitting me??! :fu::fu::fu:

    I'm looking into this. The rear tires are costing me $350 each, NON runflats! Ugh. I'm thinking of selling it but I'm afraid I won't get much $ as these models depreciate far worse than the rest of the BMW line-up.

    Flagship luxury cars are perhaps the greatest indulgence/waste of money. It's amazing how quickly they go from the 1% to frontin' 99%.

    It depends on the car. I would say the mid tier cars like BMW, Benz and such are easily had used, or even leased if you have good credit and a job. When you get into the $300,000+ cars they hold more value, and is generally more difficult to be financed.

    ^^ Truth.

    If I could go back, I would've gone with an M3 or M5. Those Merc black series c63 are lookin' mighty fine though!

    Thanks. I agree the ensemble was quite drab, although I guess I subconsciously dressed to fit the mood of the meeting with my client in preparation for trial.

    What color shirt would you suggest?

    Even for baller cars, the depreciation is murderous. I just did a quick search, and you can pick up a 2009 599 GTB for about $70,000 off the original purchase price.
