Us M3 owners aren't in some elite club or anything, we just own a cool car. I got some friends that hate my decision in purchasing an M3, they wanted me to buy a Skyline but I just couldn't get over the ugliness factor. The only other car I considered was the Audi S5 because I wanted a good looking luxury coupe. I've got an NSX for that connected to the road goodness. But I like seeing people do what they want. I know you kicked around different ideas on the color your M3 would be. Then you tossed around ideas about what car to get. In the end, you did what you wanted and didn't become a sheep. Now you got performance that none of us M3 owners can match yet. Yeah, there are things that make the M3 different but the Vette is unique by the same token. You did your research, you made your decision and it's the best one for you!
