What Would You Do if You Were Given the Money for a Highend Car?

Just like the title says, what would you do if you were given the money for a highend car? this is actually a serious question. Its a really long story, but to try and make it short my mom had her hip replaced and then the replacement was recalled. My mom isnt real old but medical issues has caused her to to go on and off FMLA in the past and is currently back on it. I live at home with her just to help with times like this. She told me today that when its over with shes getting a new house and car and buying me a car. I just looked at her and said alright, BMW and she said yeah. I think i rather have the money tho and save it and invest some. and later on use it to help buy a house. anyone got any input?

yeah I figured it would be needless to say its gotta be replaced again, which is why she is back on FMLA.

I should add to my first post by saying they are paying to have the replacements replaced. I bet thats why this post I quoted was made.

First one was done 2 years ago and yeah of course insurance covered it. the second one is coming up. the insurance isnt paying for the second one, the company that designed it and the company that produced it is paying for it. the lawsuit is nation wide. its effecting many, many people. some details I cant give but some are public info.

I think I would also save the money. Cars will always come and go.

^^^ Exactly what she said. A house is going to have a pay off to it. Cars never really do.
