Lotta looks here - no waves from the stock M3's always get waves from the modded ones.
ms372's M3 sounds insane! It's eargasmic; loud in a very good way.

My car rarely gets noticed, but I always give a thumbs up to another M car. Or even a clean non-BMW. I just appreciate the car, I guess. I've only got thumbs upped once by a guy in another E36, but strangely, plenty of people in trucks ask me to do a burnout at a stoplight. It's happened four times since I got the car some dude in a truck (ITS NEVER A CAR, ONLY A TRUCK) rolls down his window and shouts "yo do a burnout! Sick car bro!" or "hey is that the inline-six?!? Man, spin those tires!"

I agree SoCal has it's fair share of ass hats. Like I won't acknowledge you in your M3 if you had, say, bleached spikey hair and looked like you were 40... I mean I already know the response I am going to get from you... (I just described some guy in my neighborhood)
We are complete assholes on the outside but throw the sh*t back at us and we're mush. Hug. No homo.

I am in the country 30 miles north of Charlotte, NC. Other than the oasis I live in, no one gives a crap about a BMDubya, it's just not their style. On the flip side, I cannot take my 2012 Boss 302 anywhere without people honking and giving me the thumbs up on the highway, complimenting while refuleing, rolling down windows at stoplights. The best is the kids hollering out - nice car mister!

You know where I see the most disrespect among M3 owners or soon-to-be owners? On y'all's forum. Seriously.

last month, in one of those warmer than usual January winters, I took my M out and I saw an e46 M3 infront of me. He had to take an exit so he moved over so I passed. It was pretty obvious that we noticed other and I gave him thumbs up and he returned about the same time.

I'm sure there are those out there, but I haven't really encountered any...yet...

Honestly, when people pass you guys on the road/highway dont take it as an insult, driving around in a soccer mom SUV I consider it a blessing to drive ahead of or get passed by a performance car(m3/m5/gtr etc)

Couldn't have been me. I say hi to everyone in other M3s. Only the Asians chicks in M3's ignore me. They think I'm hitting on them or something.

What is it with M5 owners and Affliction shirts? When I had my E60 M5 every time I saw another M5 it was always some 30 something guy who was either heavy-set or roided out and they would have some overly busy affliction shirt on.

They would absolutely never ever acknowledge me, even at car meets. That was in TX, now Im in Vegas so we'll see how the M3 crowd responds when my Santorini comes in

Yes, it amazes me how people in the DC area don't know to say excuse me or use their turn signals.

Don't know, don't care much. I don't really pay attention to other drivers. If it's another M3 driver I'll give them a glance to see the ride and see if they are looking. If not, I just continue on. But then again, I've only seen a couple of other M3's in this area, and it's been from around a corner or passing in the opposite direction.

Down in this area it's usually Mustang drivers that pull up next to me expecting to race. I usually ignore them completely now, even if they have a nice setup or are driving a Shelby or Boss. I'm not going to race you on the street, dumbass. Give these assholes even a glance and they think you wanna race...

If I get a friendly thumbs up or wave, I'll give it back. But so far in my experience, most people around here in Civics, Scion TC's, and Mustangs think a glance in their direction is a challenge. No thanks...

In the DC/Balto area I am in I don't come across that many e9x m3s unless at an event. I think over one and a half years of ownership I've seen (maybe I should say noticed) maybe 6 m3s on the road, and when they have noticed me I've gotten the thumbs up (about half the time I think). Also got a thumbs up from an e39 m5 and most humorously from a Prius driver at a stoplight in downtown Baltimore. I am always happy to return the gesture. Twice I have had guys come up to me complimenting me on the car at gas stations.

Have never gotten hate, a modded e46 I think 330 tried to race me the other day and I had a Mercedes SL 65 AMG throw down the gauntlet once. I have spent enough time in traffic court to just pull into the slow lane and drive the speed limit in response to that craziness. Especially when it is an SL 65 AMG, no point in embarrassing myself.

I would guess it is regional...

I've had nothing but positive feedback....had a 335i owner slow down at an intersection once he noticed the M and gave me a thumbs up and I did the same (even though the 335i does nothing for me, just trying to be nice LOL) I saw a E93 at another intersection with the top down and we both honked at each other...finally I was driving through the city when I caught up to a black E92 (the owner was really cool, we both rolled down our windows and talked about each others cars for a few blocks in stop and go traffic before he turned off.

Back in the day, BMW owners used to flash each other and it was understood. It was rare to see other BMW owners.......

Do we need to be like this to each other?

This is even evident between BMW owners that have older Model Year BMW's. They look at you like, "what? you think you're better than us non-M3 owners?" I get this all the time when filling up.....

Before you think that it's me, this was never a case when driving my other +15 non-M BMW's over the years.....







...f-ck you
