[QUOTE=QUIKAG,Sep 20 2008, 11:15 AM] Rai, your justification on the M3 being cheaper than the GT-R or new 911 sounds just like when I was conned into buying an Omega watch that was a bit cheaper than...

May be a good idea to set up a college savigs plan. Just a little bit every month can add up to a lot in 18 years. Also may be tax advantage (state tax).

Have fun :lalala:
