    You can do 3 things with it using $25,000 for each of the three things.


    So what woould you do?

    I would:

    1.) Pay off all student loans and payments ect.
    2.) Buy something I dont need but really want, idk what that is yet lol.
    3.) Give the rest to a charity.

    How about you?

    Pay student loans, and buy a brand new car. I'm tired of old new cars that have the propensity to kill me, or leave me stranded undesirable places.

    Oh, like that... icon_lol.gif
    Last year I took my car (~160K miles then) in for a timing belt replacement...just in case.
    A few thousand bucks later I regretted doing that. icon_lol.gif

    If you hadn't, and the belt broke, then you would have really regretted not doing it when every valve in it bent or went through your pistons...but it does seem like you got taken advantage of with your car, though....unless it's a Porsche or something similar. Shouldn't have cost thousands to do a belt replacement on most cars.

    Oh it wasn't just the belt. They found a whole host of other things that needed preventive replacement.
    Fortunately I'm mechanically inclined anyway, so I check out their work after they finished, and it was all legit. And the price wasn't too bad given the warranty that comes with work done at the dealership (which came in handy cause they fucked up and it cost me nothing to have their fuckup fixed).

    I dont know why when people have money they always want to throw it away on something. Why don't they ask themselves when they are going to have that big amount of money ever again and start to make something out of it?
