While the "mystique" of a brand and model have something to do with the purchase (e.g. I would have trouble thinking a Kia is cool...), in the end I'm buying the car. If it drives, looks, and feels the way I like, with the options I want - it's great.
Maybe I would feel differently if I had more of a history with M, but this is unlikely to be my last M3 (4...).
2009 E93 M3 - it's, um, pretty fun
