Dear all,
Please help me with this one.

"He has bought a brand new car. It is not a thing he would like to show off with" - is it correct? I am not sure if I should leave "with" out.
Maybe different construction should be used

    With seems normal to me although it is not strictly necessary: He does not want to show off (to attract attention to himself) with the car.

    It is not a thing he would like to show off = He does not want to attract attention to the car.
