M3 equals harrasment?

But the M3 is not only a different car its a different life style, get ready to have everything and anything harass you on the road. Any ricer or sporty car that gets next to you will always be on edge and jumpy. Personally I am in the debate to get another M car or not, I seem to only look at the negatives from having a past M car about the harassment and road rage the car can bring you. And to think I could just get a 335i and put a chip in it and no one would know or give it a second glance.
Pretty much nonsense to me as any car can get picked on. IMO seems more like the driver himself is the one who got picked on (sounds young) regardless of what he was driving. Just seems silly as everyone I know that owned one never complained about this and if you ask me a 335 and M3 has that same body shape which to me looks very subtle, classy and stealthy not outrageous or showy.

No big deal tho just thought id share.

its usually the Evo's, Civics, Sti's that want to race, but to call it harrassment is an overkill

Harassment I do not care about but I do care about if someone purposely key or dent a car because it's a M. I have control over my own actions but not others.

I just thought it was kinda funny/strange to see someone so paranoid to a point like that.

Sometimes if someone is acting stupid at a stop, my hubby likes to covertly reverse or roll back. It hilarious to see em jam on their brakes

the same people who complain about "harrasment" are eyeballing every other driver on the road.

it's the people more concerned with what the rest of the world is doing rather than what they're doing

attention != harrassment

You will get tons of attention in the car - some good, some bad. Its up to you how you handle it.
