There are a few such threads over on the 1M forum too. Lets be clear-BMWs are unfathonable purchases to any person who is truly "poor", or part of the "working poor" class who can barely afford a bus ticket, let alone their own vehicle.
Just a pet peeve of mine!
No need to cringe, it is just a figure of speech after all. I don't know too many poor men that can even get close to a 328i. What I am saying is that, "for me" the 911 Turbo is that super car that is closely attainable coming from an M3. And that I feel that the M3 is a great car, hell, I've owned three. IMO, 911's are much more attainable super cars than the more exotic like Ferraris and Lambos. For me, the 911 Turbo is a super car, Ferraris and Lambos are exotic super cars, they are too high in the stratosphere.
