"Don't regret if I drive a BMW..."

Wow,

My brother said that..., I can't really imagine a 18 year old could think of having a BMW, let alone drive one. Let me see...

In Malaysia, BMW Group sales rose 24.8% with 3,213 units over the last year's (2,574). BMW brand sales surged 25.1% with sales of 3,016 units, its highest figure ever (previous year: 2,410). BMW cars rank as leaders in the middle
(3 Series) and upper (X5) segments. The 5 Series, in particular, saw an 82.4% growth after an already strong increase of 47% a year before. The flagship 7 Series now commands 42% of the market share for its segment. MINI cars contributed again to record sales, increasing 20% to 197 units.

No wonder sales went up...I still remember that BMW sales went up last year. Heck, I even remember the number 3,213 (a good 4D number).

There's a few items before you go get an expensive car. These are the basics:

1. Car loan per month.
Think. Can you sustain it every month? Are you able to be content with personally scraping for changes, if you miss a payment? If you have family, this is harder to decide. Oh ya, now they can go up to 9 years.

2. Road tax
It's due annually. You gotta pay, coz the government needs taxed.

3. Petrol
Oh ya, why don't get a smaller car. Cheaper, less fuel consumption... it's 1.93 RM, and still under subsidy.

4. Tolls
Yes, we need to hand it to Malaysian Road Builders....nice highways, but you gotta pay.

5. Car Insurance.
Another thriving auto industry.

6. Car maintenance.
Get proton first, even though it sucks. Even tough you hate national cars. But at least look at the positive side. If there's sth wrong with parts, just go to kereta potong, and get some spare parts cheap. If not, you will be stuck with expensive parts to replace.
I was once at a work shop for repairs, and the mechanice mentioned that the merz changing disc brakes cost 1k plus.

Don't be fooled by others driving nice cars. If they have the means, no worries. But if an LB member, who just have initial pay for a few thousands, and already dreaming the next BMW, Merz, Ferraris...it's suicide.

Even though you do get that paycheck, can it guarantee for the next 9 years?

Let's hope so.

Hello Everyone!!!,

I'm Ah Wai from MLM. Such a nice post from all of you :)

I admit sometimes the MLMers always use this kind of tactic of luring "potential" people into their business. Eg. N-stream, Synergy, Herbalife, Lampeberger, Amway, Diamond, eCosway, IMagic, NuSkin, CNI and etc.

I'm also ex-anti MLMer just like you all. Proud to be antiMLMers. "MLM is conbusiness" and "StudioTraffic is PONZI SCHEME!" Hehehe... :)

But, AT LAST i realise in this World of Events..."Capitalism"

EITHER YOU CON PEOPLE OR PEOPLE CON YOU...you choose!

Sami Vellu, politicians, MPSJ, MPPJ, MBI, dato, datuks, Thaksin, Arroyo, Suharto, *me* and etc also CONNING people $$$ only what...

I only take little con $$$ while the *people mentioned above* CON the "rakyat" & taxpayer's $$$ BIG TIME! SO what is the FUSS?

I con my lecturer before, i cheat on my exam before, i Ponteng class before, i cheated during SNOOKER, i cheated my fren before, hell i even con my GF before. Hahaha. What is the BIG FUSS?

As i say, EITHER YOU CON PEOPLE or PEOPLE CON YOU...Its a survival skill!

Its better for us, "the little guy with no $$$" to con little $$$, than "the BIG SHOT GOVERNMENT officials" to con the rakyat $$$.

RIght?

I'm DAMN sure the GOvernment DOn't MIND this little $$$ one.

AIyah, we group together as a group of "hardcore anti-lampeberger", then we charge those people who is also "anti-lampeberger" RM 100 each. Then, we also make LOTS of $$$.

Simple calculation,

RM 100 x 10,000 member (ANTI-LAMPEBERGER) = RM 1,000,000!!!!

Then, we BUY Ferrari and BMW to drive to Menara HLA, park at the FRONT and BURN them. This we show that we also can make $$$ ma!!!

DAMN good IDEA...!!!

WE group together ok...WE KEEP in touch! Malaysia BOLEH!

Remember, my name is AH Wai from SYN DCHL Lampeberger :)

no lah.... i have money to buy a car, but wat for? i live to ride. riding is in my blood. i prefer to ride my black Kawaks anytime.

===================================

anyway, where in the world u see anti-lb ppl blaming parents for no money and government for no power? in fact ppl who refused from joining lb are much more happier ppl.

or was that the thing running in lb ppls mind like u?

no money to join, blame parents bcoz parents don wana give u money to join.

plus u dont even have the willpower to say NO from getting brainwashed. so u blamed government coz government didnt stop LB from brainwashing u.

sigh... i pity u brainwashed victims.

i really dont see any business run in this so called mlm:)
first thing is, what did u do other than finding downline in order for u to get the commission?
the saddest part is, y do ppl wud "invest" their money when i ask the marquess who are their customer n they dont even know how to answer it:P
in order for u to b a successful businessman, u shud have clients...but y u dont even bother to find customer n market their product?instead, u'd rather find a downline to find their downline n it goes on n on n on...

u ppl r so funny
