Evaluation is only as important as the evaluator is to you.
Well, when you come back to your parked car and find a long gouge in the door or hood, that's when you care about how you may be perceived.

I'm seeing two different things. Maloney is saying if he gets keyed just because he drives a M3. You are saying more along the lines of, if the OP would have parked and the Camaro guy keyed his car.

Personally, I avoid either scenario. The car stays in the garage. Too much emotional bs going on in the States. When I was in Germany, the only time I had to worry about my car getting scratched or dented was when I was parked on post. People actually respect each other over there and they don't even need gun control because there are no guns. Too many retards around here so I keep the car garaged and the only time its on the road is for little pleasure cruises or if it's headed to VIR. Because as Maloney said, it can be random. Like the idiot that did this:

People do get shot for less these days and you're in Texas crushing egos in a German car...
so true

i know what you and your wife sounds cool, but it was dangerous. i'd rather get the guy's plate and phone it in. that's what the police are for.

kudos to your wife however!

You're lucky you didn't get a big handful of change to the front of your car.

True Power...

Kudos on you for the victory and the race that could have caused you to react and then subsequently regret the outcome your action(s). BTW...I just left Kandahar also. At any rate, "True Power" is knowing you can, but won't! I learned my racing lesson, finally, after I was clocked at 91 mph in a 70 mph zone in South Carolina and I'm glad I was finally caught. Fortunately, I hired a lawyer and got the ticket reduced to 5 mph over the speed limit and I kept it off of my Virginia driving record. Had I been caught exceeding the speed limit in excess of 15 mph in Virginia I probably would not have my 2011 E90 Sedan. Virtually everyone is packing, legally or illegally, these days. I packed throughout my 22 years, both with a concealed weapon permit and without, while in the military and since retiring. I'm not afraid to use my weapon and I hope like h3ll that I NEVER have to--I don't want the cost that comes with defending myself in our legal system because regardless of your position, justified or not, you never know what may be the outcome. If I, you, or anyone else ever pull your weapon and use it we just need to be prepared for the amount of pesos it will cost us to defend ourselves. And for retired military, get convicted and confined and you/we jeopardize losing your/our military retirement. Finally, everyone speaks of packing, but in 30 years I've never heard of a person pulling a weapon, using it, and then boasting proudly about the results or how well they made out. Continue to pack, but try and stay out of situations that may cause you to use your power. The fact that it was a soldier or military member does not make it ok, remember what happened in Kandahar when the soldier walked off based and.... No one could have predicted that situation or outcome.

And the army doesn't ever recruit criminals who shoot people...

I hate driving near fort hood or any army base. Lots of idiots. They have the ones in the army and then the ones that got kicked out of the army. I was coming home from the track and these asses were trying to race me in my 330. I just kept drinking my coke with the cruise control on. And they passed me really fast. Wow, they really taught me a lesson.
