12 Cool New Cars for Teens With Money

Autoweek yesterday announced their list of 10 Great and Safe Rides for Teens but we think this is so boring, not to mention the list of cars is horrid and I'd never want to see even my childrens' school teachers driving these. What am I saying? My kids are privately educated - at home - but I think the point is made.

This has inspired me to pick 12 Cool Cars for Teens who have money. I've set the price limit a low $50k (since it's not good to just give money away to your children - they have to earn it) and the car must be new, as a 2009 or 2010 model year car. Here's what I've come up with, in no particular order.

1. BMW 135i

BMW has long been known for making safe, fun cars and the 135 doesn't fail to deliver. Compact and very well balanced, it makes good use of the twin-turbo 300hp engine. If that's not enough, turn to Dinan and for the dollar difference from mid-30's to our 50k limit you'll have a street rocket like no other, still in full warranty and free maintenance.

Purebot Plastic Water Bottle: The Only Safe One?

plastipure-purebot-bottleHydrapak, a company that produces hydration packs and gel-pack bottles for serious sports competitors recently announced the Purebot plastic bottle. Supposedly the Purebot bottle, which is made with PlastiPure technology is the "first plastic reusable water bottle that is completely free of estrogenic activity, otherwise known as EA. EA, a common byproduct of plastic manufacturing has been linked to health problems especially in women and young children.

The Purebot is designed to be used in applications with a bottle holder, such as on your bicycle, but could be used as a "regular" reusable water bottle.

Details:

  • Capacity: 24oz
  • Screw Top Lid
  • Price: $9.99 ea, or 3 for $24.99
  • Where to Buy: hydrapak.com

Plastic bottle health concerns has been in the news a lot lately, and even alternative metal bottles by companies such as SIGG are not immune. And, as evidenced by companies such as SIGG, we may not be told of the problems until later, even if known.

This just makes me wonder, will the new Purebot be truly safe, or will there be concerns found later? If this truly is safer, at $9.99 you could afford to outfit your entire family with a new one for each day of the year, even after giving a few to your housekeepers and butlers.
