    If you think he's responsible enough then make him the happiest son ever! Make sure he understands he has a gem in his possession... this isn't just another car...

    Default Of course he does!!!

    What a great car to learn so many things on. He can learn to drive, and learn to wrench! Of course it doesn't help when there's almost no work to do on the thing!!!

    Good driver's car, good safe car, good for Aubrey!

    If he seems to be a good, safe driver then its a good idea. Someone at my school totalled at least one e30 318is.

    honestly i bet youv made you mind and are giving him the thing, but from experiance, no need to give him that car, give him a bimmer, yes, but not somthing so nice, he will ruin it and run it into the ground the way i did with my e30

    I'm half with you, half not.

    Either way, if you do give it to him, make sure he appreciates it.
    My parents gave me the 525i when I was 15 1/2. I don't think I've run it into the ground yet.

    Kindness to my own son would say "Yes, lets spoil him!!!!", however the more powerful voice of reason says "let him bend a $1000 (read safe) car first". Examples would be Volvo 240 series, American iron....,etc., Dodge Grand Caravan (just kidding).

    I bought all of my cars with my own sweat and blood with little help from my folks on my first car. I think there is an important lesson there.

    This coming from a father of two, probably won't sit well with you younger folks.

    Since you asked.......
