Mercedes and Audis are symbols of prosperity specifically because they are such horrible values; if they were more reasonably priced or higher quality, they wouldn't be status symbols, they would just be expensive reasonable choices. Their status comes from the fact that only someone filthy rich could care about money so little to make such a poor purchase. This kind of thing is the white person's version of "bling" - retardedly overspending on highly visible items to make yourself seem more prosperous than you really are. I guess you could toss fancy AV equipment in there and lots of other things.
