Well, my wife could tell I was bored with the 328i when I kept sniffing around Porsche dealerships. I wanted a Porsche Approved(certified) 2005-08 manual 911 or Cayman S. When I couldn't find what I wanted for the price I wanted the research started on the M3. The dealer made me an awesome deal on my barely used 328i and I qualified for some "loyalty" perks. When I ran great numbers past my wife she said "why not." That was it. She has never stepped on my plans/dreams.
