Funny M3 owner story

I've been laughing to myself today in regards to what I saw last night. Yesterday evening I was in the parking lot of some high end restaurants talking on my phone and waiting for some buddies when a Red E92 pulled up and parked. This is the first E92 I've seen besides mine so I was going to say hi to the dude but when his door opened out came a man in his 70's that could not even stand up straight. He was walking towards one of the restaurants hunched over and I believe he was talking to himself also. I was so amazed that I couldn't say anything to him.. He must be a fan of the car however I just did not expect that.

Unfortunately, that's what people think when I get out of any of my cars.

Was it one of the launch cars?

I bet he went into the dealership looking for a nice staid BMW sedan and he got sold into the M3. Either that or his 25 yr. old girlfriend told him to get it.

Drive insanely fast and you will not get old. It just shows that people of all ages like the new M3. Just don't laugh cause we might be like that sooner or later in life. At least when we are in that age, we can still say that we are still enjoying our life.
