The 16-25 crowd must being doing something right, good for you!
Same here. I was driving an old Acura Integra while in college, bought my first new car at 22 ('03 WRX) and bought my first house at 25. No M car just yet though.

Definitely do Euro Delivery. It is totally worth it.

Insurance rates are not necessarily sky-high for under-25 drivers - a lot of it has to do with prior record, personal background, etc. But I absolutely agree, I'm shocked how many //M3 owners there are here under the age of 25. My dealer said I was one of the youngest, as far as purchasing an //M3 is concerned.
Very true, there are a lot of variables that will determine the insurance rate for a given individual. My rates dropped slightly each year between 22 and 25, but it was a significant drop once I hit 25.
Delivered in Munich, broken in on the Nurburgring.
