I got my 2011 M3 last year when I was 20, with my money, just because it took some of you guys into your 30's or 40's to get a nice M3 don't immediately assume its impossible to do at a younger age. Hard work pays off, you should all know that by now regardless of your age!
Using all bolded text does help make your point but you might want to also consider using different colored text. Black is boring. I've seen several arguments on here won with dark sage or tuscan brown text.

I'm 24 and an officer in the U.S.Navy. I just moved up from a 2005 e46 m3 to a 2012 e92 m3. It helps that I went to college for free, but what mommy and daddy gave me was a good set of financial skills and taught me how to budget. With the practices, I have been able to attain things that I never dreamed I would as a kid.

OK...I'll bite 46 YO, own my own business, and make north of a $1MM/year....The M3 was an impulse buy for me after I traded in my 2008 997S. Wanted a hard top connvertible and had an early E46 when I was youner. Love the performance of the M3, but agree with your friend, that it is a bit of a "ricky racer" car. As such, will be obtaining a new Panamera GTS or Merc CLS 63 AMG when lease expires in 11 months.

Do the CLS63, it's so much better styling and performance wise. Its exhaust note is amazing as well.

The CLS63 is a great car, but have you seen this?

Since you're in FL and driving a vert already I'd suggest taking a LONG hard look at the new Benz SL. I think you'll like much of what you see...

Yea, since your business seems to be doing well, just jump up to an SL63 AMG vert or a an Audi R8 Spyder.
