I think the argument is, would you give your baby the evening bath wearing a Patek Philippe? The case may be waterproof, but the alligator band isn't - and you probably don't want bits of baby (sham)poo stuck in the leather seams.

The watch analogy is not adequate IMO. Most daily tasks can be successfully accomplished using any type of watch, but that may not be the case with a low to the ground, loud, 2 seater supercar. If you only drive it 5 times a year, is it better to stay with the M3 as a daily driver and derive X% of the satisfaction?

To me, if you can truly afford and exotic then you probably can afford an M3 also. Problem solved.
