Where are you M35 guy?!?!

This morning at the gas station a guy pulled up next to me in an "M35" with a loud quad exhaust and BBS-LM. He told me to get rid of my clunker M (?) and get his car which he referred to as the new M3. He started talking about how it had 450hp and 500hp with M settings and that it makes his old e92 feel like Hyundai. I asked him why there was a 5 next to the 3 and he said that it was because it has the same technology as the new M5 (something about shared engine mapping and tuning). The thing is he had an M3Post.com sticker on the rear window so he has to be on here. Where are you M35 guy? I have more questions to ask you. Why didn't you let me take a picture of your new M3?

I should also mention that it had a weird looking front bumper. Never seen anything like it before. Who knows maybe he does have the new M3?

The guy was probably just being sarcastic and corny.

Was this an E90 or F30 he was driving? If the latter, he may be referring to the fact that the F80 M3 will use a 3L turbo I6 just like the F30 335i, so he may feel overly proud and/or confident in the fact that he already has, in his mind - effectively - a new M3 a year+ before they will hit the market.

In any case, he obviously does not have a real M3, he is just betting his car will be as capable as one. Of course, we know that the next M3 will be more than a tuned up N55 and lowered suspension, but let's not let that burst his ignorantly-blissful bubble.

He is probably a member, but I wouldn't necessarily expect him to chime in on this thread.

Reminds me of this guy with a stock E46 M3 that said his car had 400HP and was a special edition from Germany..

Bimmian sells "custom" trunk badges basically anything you want so anyone can have an M35 or M310 or an M3 Super Duper Awesome Edition.

I don't have any pictures but I sketched out what it looked it. It's like a combination of the F30 M sport bumper and the E9x M3 bumper and honestly it looked pretty nice. The guy was just stupid and cocky.

Nice sketch. The animals are also a great touch and add a lot of realitic quality to the picture.

Anyway, that's definitely an F30, and it's probably an aftermarket bumper.

The guy was just taunting you because he has a "next generation" car and, since the next generation M3 is not available yet, you are "stuck" with the E9x. He probably never even owned an E9x M3. Just ignore him. I'm sure it is a nice car he has, but it is no F80 M3.

THIS!!! Totally just made my co-workers wonder why they suddenly have a lot of work, and what I've been doing all day.
