I'm 24, living the dream with an E90. (It isn't paid in full - but just saying - it's do-able)
You, sir, are very smart. M3s, Porsche 911s, Audi RSR4s and so on are for folks with disposable income. Get an education, a job, a house and a family (family is optional... there are pros and cons) then consider toys. I drove Toyotas into the 200,000 mile range, paid my bills, got four kids through college then in 2001 got my first Porsche (at 47 years old). No regrets.
Now, I am prowling the M3 forums. I just need a little bump to do another ED to pick up a new M3. Someone... give me a little shove.
Oh yeah... my must have car was a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396. It is great to dream and reach in your youth.
