yeah, I also think he's too young to be having a V6, let alone a NEW car that has a V6. and you're not helping encouraging him to race you, he's just going to race that thing all over the place, and like others have said, wrap it around a telephone pole.

My thoughts exactly. I had a 91 Volvo 5spd as my first car. Learned to drive responsibly before i got anything with more power. I wouldnt have dreamed of having such a brand new car at such a young age. I was stupid at 18 when i got my lisense, i couldnt imagine 16 with a vehicle that fast.

I just hope this doesnt turn into a "I told you so" thread when he totals it within a year.

a year would be a really long time, with a brother encouraging you to race, I don't think he makes it a month w/o a ticket and 2 months tops w/o an accident.

Although statistics do show the chances of him crashing it are hight, I don't think there is a big variance between getting a new driver a V6 or a 4 cylinder. An irresponsible driver will do something stupid either way, and a responsible driver will have the benefit of learning to control the extra power right from the beginning.

Why didn't he get the 6-Speed?
