Well stated, guys.
Sorry if the poser comment came off as a personal insult to anyone.
Much like you imagined me as some 19 year old punk (I wish I was still that young), I imagined some of you as guys who tool around at 3000 RPM in their Vert without really experiencing the "M" part of the car.
Glad to see your experience (esp. track experience) proves me wrong.
You do have to thank me for the poser comment, though. It got a real discussion started about the true pros and cons of Verts vs. Hardtops, with a bit of technical stuff mixed in.
I'd be happy to drive with either of you in your M3 Verts anytime . . .
