I was just in Ireland. During my travels I saw 6 M3s, 2 M5s, and 1 M6. I cannot speak to the total number present in the country but I saw enough to make me smile. Even with the current state of their economy there were plenty of BMWs/other luxury cars around. I did see a good number of the new F30s. To be honest I think in the US we are far more willing/interested in showing off our money through our toys than most of the population in Ireland. And truthfully I always enjoy being there for that reason. What a truly lovely country (even if it rains a lot hah).
