Most of the people that know me already, know that this isn't my first bmw,At the age of 17 I've owned a E46 M3, E36 328is, and a E30 325i, not all at once. The last car I owned was a 1997 328is I sold the car because it had may problems and I was upset to be driving my work truck GMC 2500HD.
So for my 18th birthday I hooked myself up with a 2001 M5. If all of you are thinkin how the hell I got all this cash, all I have to say is no I didn't sell drugs or anything long thoses lines I just own my own company, its a landscaping company and the amount of profit coming in from the business is unbelievable.

P.S PICS ARENT MINE ORG OWNER TOOK THEM!

Cheers Mike

Thanks for the support guys I started a landscaping company called EuroTopia LandScaping when I was 16 years old with some help from my dad. It was pretty great I was making around $36000 for 12weeks of work. I would be pulling in around $500 a day in the spring and fall for rolling lawns and aerating lawns. After I got my G2 for the winter I bought myself a Pick up truck to plow lots and I got a few contracts to keep me alive the next day for school, all and all it was pretty good and the next following summer I started to cut lawns and go all out land scaping for the hole year. So that year 2005 I made around $63,000 after taxs. I had my truck paid off and and all my equipment so it was pure cash in my pocket and it never felt better. So I bought myself a M5 and also have a work truck and this spring before I go onto school I will make around $18,000-20,000 in 6weeks and I have two teenages working for me so I dont even do any work just let them use the truck.It will be enough to pay off insurance for the year and enough to go to school with.
I'am going to school at Royal Military College to become a pilot and they will be paying me around $40,000 a year.The two guys will be running my company for the year with the help of my dad over looking that everything runs smoothly

That's amazing, it's great to see that you accomplished so much at a young age.. I even thought of myself as having good accomplishments at my age but I just can't compare to you.

Good luck on your school and business

Didn't you say you were going into autobody at college or something and working at bmw :confused:

thats a crappy career change :( but at least this is more lucrative...where did you import the car from? :)

Mike54900
04-12-2006, 11:03 PM
Yeah I was gonna go into Auto Body but my uncle owns a shop so I dunno I learned most of my stuff but if I join the Air Force I know I can go into retirement at the age of 40 and live with nothing to worrie about I'll never be rich and i'll never be poor.
+ I get to use all the nice folks tax money to Fly Big Toys*th-up*
Go F18 Hornet:D

For most of the people here that are young all I have to say is think smart and think about your future dont go blowing every penny you got on a car try and save or invest that money, I have a RSP account putting in $150 a month into it so I can use the money once I hit the age of 40. Time is on your side. Most of the guys here which are 30-40 now I bet will agree with me that young kids should start a RSP account at a young age.
What i'am trying to get at is that most of the young kids on here dont need your own car right away wait till your 19-20 drive your parents or start a small company and creat an empire. Think about your furture dont think that the world will fall apart if you dont get a car at the age of 16-17.

Anyone else can add to this if you like

Cheers Mike

I looked up EuroTopia LandScaping in kitchener / ontario and there are no listings:confused:
I found 52 phone numbers of companies with "Landscaping" in the name located in Kitchener:
http://canada411.yellowpages.ca/searchBusiness.do?action=homeSearch&start=1&srchtype=business&pLen=30&Se=smp&directoryId=092858&provinceId=&cityId=&categoryName=&showMsgBox=1&what=LandScaping&sType=simpleSearch&Dir=092858&step=getDirectory&city=kitchiner&pLen=22

none of which are "Eurotopia".

Which means 1 of 3 things... either the company is not listed, doesn't exist, or has no need to advertise because the contracts they have were word of mouth which leads one to believe that there was alot more parental assistance then previously told.

I'm going to go ahead and wave the B.S flag...I know a few landscape company owners and they have never heard of it. That car is on the M5 board and I didnt see it was forsale, those pictures are from when the guy got hit new rims..If im wrong sorry for the accusations but things don't add up.

Finally a B.S flag.....lol

Ye I dunno if its true right on...But as I said I searched the company and got nothing... And common, I don't care who you are making that kind of money at such a young age without daddy setting up a company for you is unheard of....Prolly a few cases but way to rare.

Congrats on your good fortune.
However Royal Military College, life is over.
It was my dream to become a pilot, however glasses ruined it all.
Glad to hear on your vision.
Are you looking into flying jets or cargo? I hear that there are 5 jet pilots for every plane.

You've had MUCH more help from daddy than what you are saying. Your numbers and timeline simply do not add up.

Get this: 36 grand at 16, and with that you bought an E46 M3, and E36 and an E30, and now you're going to make 20 grand, and have bought an M5.

O.S.
04-18-2006, 11:02 PM
guys - who cares?!?!?!
the lad got some dough to spend and bought a nice ride.
why do you get so worked up about him saying 100% truth, or 98% or even 50%.
take it easy and enjoy your cars.

lol i figured this a while ago but let the kid have his moment. i cuddn't care less if he's lying or not....if he's not then he's got a SWEET m5 to enjoy that none of us do....if he's lying then he's just another e-poser who must have some severe insecurities that he has to makeup a garage online to impress ppl he doesn't even know:huh?: *wave*

Hey Boby, I read your comments and I think you are very bright dude. I am happy to see that poeple accomplish this at age of 18 ........

but


I know few drop outs from my ex. HS that go to that college. They all keep talking about military but they also tell me that you do labour job there and clean.(not related with learning)...I think the thread looks very shady...I know he does not want his licence plates to be displayed but why would he hide / black out all the cars in his street. The plates on that suv look so small, It would not make any difference......Best of luck. Does not seem like famous college to go for a pilot lic. After he told me about College, I was gonna lough...
