I agree very much with Optherion's POV.
Growing up in Vancouver, Canada; I think it's the ultimate place to chill and just a stable place to live and wait for death to arrive.
Migrating back to Hong Kong proved to be a challenge, but I accepted it. And through these years of single life (it helps with finances), I worked from a Ford Fiesta to a VW R32 and now I'm at my E90 6MT M3.
I began to appreciate the pace of this place and the efficiency, it's a wonderful feeling to know that you can grow, that there's opportunities, and that there is a better life and more toys for you in the future.
My father is basically living the life that I would wonder about and would probably follow if I can manage financially. He has a 2008 C63, a 2002 SL55 AMG, and a 2010 997 Porsche 911 Turbo S. Have a 4 Door Family car, and then a Sports car for the occasional Drive. I prefer my M3 to the C63 as an all-around car. The SL55 is dated but is still a looker. Now the Turbo S, that's what I call fast. 0-100 in 3.14s (with Launch Control). There's power everywhere. PDK is almighty. The Ceramic brakes are easy to modulate. The best part is that it's very discreet (de-badged, actually all our cars are). It just looks like any other P-car to most people.
Of course, with all this being said, I actually am clueless as to what I would get in 5-10 years, because of the practicality and the utility of the E90M. I am quite liking the Jaguar XFR-S, and in Black with a Spoiler Delete, there's nothing quite like that noise of a Supercharged V8 with the cracking exhaust every time it shifts.
