I didn't care. I am 44 and have worked my a$$ off to afford one. I tried to be casual and not even mention it. When first asked I just told everyone "yeah I got a new car". "It's just a 3 series". Then a few car folks knew what it was so I took a ton of grief for the first week or so. They are over it now and life moves on.
I absolutely feel your pain but the pain will go away.
You work in education too?
I'm on the hunt for an e9x M3, but I will definitely have to drive a beater to work. I get enough shit from people about my clothes or when I drive my wife's 328i to work.
