You've got some money in the bank and you're waiting on approval for
your first job, or maybe you've already got it! Don't forget to update
your profile and signature if you've got your job already, otherwise no
one will believe you when you try to collect your first pay.

Before you buy a car

Before you buy your first car it is very important to make some decisions. The first decision you have to make is what Type of Car
you are going to buy. Once you own a car and have assigned it a type
you can not change it, ever! If you have just bought a second-hand car
that was one type you may change the type when you first buy it, then
never again. There are also Car Restrictions to make the game more realistic. It is important to consider what you are going to do with your car now before you realize that the car you
bought isn't going to deliver. All the rules relating to cars can be found in the Car Dealership Thread

Buying your First Car

There are four places you can buy cars from. You can get them brand new from the Car Dealership, you can buy them from a used car lot, or if you're really up for it you could buy a car from the Junkyard and restore it back to its former glory. Please read all relevant rules for these sections as they change from area to area.

Accounting for your purchase

Now that you know which car you want you have to account for it. The general rule for accounting is to quote another post and then show your calculation. So, for example, if you go to the Car Dealership, go in to the Mazda area and the very first post will be a list of all of their cars. Click on the quote button to buy a car at the top of that very first post you will see a

On the dialogue box, simply delete all of the other cars that you're not buying to leave only the car you want. It is important the keep the "quote" tags when you do this. Once you've got everything cleaned up, hit a few carriage returns and post your transaction, which will be "Current Cash - Amount Spent = New Balance".

Now click "submit" at the bottom and your reply will post. Now that
you own a car you must do a couple of things. First, update your cash
balance in your profile and signature to reflect your new balance. Next, update your profile to show that you now own this car - check the Profile Guidelines if you're not sure how to do this. Once the car is in your profile add it into your signature to show your pride and joy to the rest of LAPL.

This sounds complicated as you read through, but trust me when I ask you to keep this window open as you do it for yourself - it will make a lot more sense then.

One should include all thread links on
all modifications done to the vehicle in their vehicles post on their profile.
