I live In Miami. Hard to get looks when you have a bugatti next to you at a light. All kidding aside my car gets looks and many thumbs up due to the wheels.

It may not be a special car to you but then that logic doesn't make any sense because it's obviously special enough that you took the time to not only join an M3 forum but take additional time to post 95 times on it.

You should have bought a Prius because for a guy that claims to drive an M3, you sure don't know much about it.
+1 most of his posts are inflammatory anyways..I just laugh..hahahaha

Nope, all 3 series coupe and M3 sedans are built in Regensburg, Germany. That's right, lowly 328 and 335s are built on the same assembly line as the all mighty, all conquering M3 by the same bunch of German teenagers.

In front of said plant with my 335i

If they sold beer at the McDonald's, I'm sure they would be drinking it up. That's their hangout spot during lunch. You should see how they just throw everything down when the assembly line stops for lunch. You just hope that the kid remembers where he left off afterwards. I watched this kid literally throw down the wiring harness he was working on and walked off. Let's hope that wasn't your M3. LOL

Only on occasion with my M3 Vert. In contrast, my 66 GTO turns heads, light flashes, thumbs up, ride requests every time I take it out.

That's correct, here are a couple of photos of mine coming off the assembly line and you can the other cars made at the BMW Werk - Regensburg.

Why did you buy it if you feel it's glorified?

Yeah let's hope not. I doubt these are the guys building the engines however.

I get nothing either. Just the ocasional racer boy trying to spike me down the highway.

I think my E90 goes by pretty unnoticed (wolf in sheep skin - love it!). But again M3's are pretty common in Houston.

Totally agree! The Jerez is by far the hardest paint I've tried to keep nice and clean. But man that bitch looks good after it's been detailed.
IMO a clean Jerez with ZCP looks better than any other color.

While all M3s are built at the BMW Werk Regensburg, M engines are assembled at the BMW Werk Munchen (Munich).
