All I knew was I had to have it and the time was right. I didn't even see my car beforehand. I wanted black and the dealer's other lot had it in stock and brought it over. No test drive, no kicking tires and no thinking about it overnight. One of the happiest days in my life, finally getting an M3 20+ years after seeing the first one while in high school.
That's true, when you know you want something, you don't think twice.
That's what I did when I got my 335i prior to the M3, and right AFTER signing the paperwork, the finance adviser made a comparison to dating a girl -- gotta give her a few dates before you commit.
Well, apparently I like to live dangerously. Both with cars and women.
