I was at a 350Z/370Z meet (used to own one) and a female LA County Sheriff officer rolled through the meet. She kept saying she wanted that BMW right there and was pointing to my car lol! She told me she'd trade her cruiser for it! When I asked her if that meant I could go as fast as I wanted, lights and sirens, she said "sure I don't care" haha!

Your car is ridiculously full of mouth watering & d!ck hardening materials.

I cant express enough of much I like your ride man.

Freaking love the front lip & diffuser.
The white Falken text matches the color of your car so well.
Volk 18" !!! holy batman. Way to go man. I much prefer the purpose built 18" than the pimping 19" or 20". & small details as the yellow Volk sticker & the calipers. F@ck!

There is more, last but not least, it's a manual.
Dear Lord!!!

Has your car been on the front page here yet?

always

i dont know if it is a good thing or not....since my car color combo is loud...ronald mcdonalds as everyone is saying here...but i can see on they're faces that they appreciate the unique style...8/10 always gives me a thumbs up..even audi drivers on the road honk and gives me thumbs up.
M3 forum members probably the most hard to impress of all since they are used to superchargers,vorsteiners,brembo,HREs,BBS kind of mods.

We had a 'normal' Jerez Black M3 and I used to get a lot of thumbs up in Luxembourg and I also saw people taking photos of it. Probably because in 2008 there weren't yet many of them on the streets. My husband has another theory - he thinks I got the thumbs up because "a woman is not meant to drive an M3" Apparently girls can drive a Mercedes SL/SLK, Porche Boxter or Mazda MX5 but not the M3. Yeah right

We'll see the reactions in couple of months, there's not tons of M3s around in Belgium either... and I'm back

Please share YOUR experience.
I've gotten a few nods and looks from others.

Are you around the Rt3/burlington/S.Nashua area? You have the same color/year/wheels as me

Sounds like you may actually believe your car is better than a Lambo.

That is laughable.

Rich guy trying to buy a cool car? Exotics are panty droppers regardless. You should get out more.

I had a stock Sparkling Graphite E90 M3... so no. Nobody cared.

Except for the rare enthusiasts who would park next to me, give me thumbs up, or want to race.

My ///M seems to attract very little attention.

Well we have been dealing in Lamborghini and Ferrari for over 30 years and had more models than I'm sure you are even aware of. It was funny last time I was at Laguna and the guys in the 458s and Gallardos wanted to know what was done to my car because of how bad I was over taking them. Sorry but I don't think my M3 is like your M3.

Cheers,

J

So because you beat them on the track, you're implying that they would rather your car than their Lamborghini?
As I said before, wake up.

Ok buddy. lmao
