I am 62. Bought my '11 ZCP in July. I have been around the block with performance cars, i.e M5 E39, couple editions of the Porsche turbo 996 & 997, etc. The M3 is a great combo of usablility, performance, looks and comfort in the performance car arena - I love the car.. No Kids at home now so no need for a big people carrier. The tight economy moved me from the turbo to the M3. I am very happy I did, no need to go back to something else for an everyday car.
