Default Inherited $50K .. buy car, audio gears, or food

OK, so I just recently inherited some .. well I don't want to call it dirty money .. but I didn't get it cleanly. What should I buy? A new cool car, or better audio gear, or just better food?

1. BMW M4: My current car is an E46 M3 but I put a lot of money into it with a bunch of upgrading so it's a just not any M3. A new M4 wouldn't bad but I don't want to waste money on a car just so can get a new car. A good used M4 will be around $50K.
2. New audio gears: I've been down on this road before .. I mean there are only so many things you can improve .. besides my system is pretty good as is... Unless I can get a bigger living room, better gears can only improve so much.
3. lol's .. maybe I should just use the extra money to buy better food.

Any particular reason you need to spend it (at) all? If you had kids, I'd say invest in college fund - if not, maybe some traveling?

Traveling is out of the question .. I am sorted a wanted man .. don't want to risk too much..

The stock market is in a limbo .. ain't going nowhere .. so investing is just not going to work either ..

Any idea on booze? Maybe that's what I really need? Sick of the same stuffs everyday.

Then perhaps you should put it toward impending legal fees.

If you truly are wanted and obtained this money via illegal means, the last thing you should be doing is posting on a public forum from your home IP address. I think $50k is above the threshold where banks are obligated to report your transactions to the IRS as well.
