Another one of these threads!!! Why are they so interesting to people? The point is that we all have them and can share information in order to make individual ownership that much more enjoyable.

Well, I was 28 and my wife was 27. We are both active duty enlisted military in the Army. I am on my 9th year being stationed overseas with a couple of tours amounting to a little over six years in Germany. This is my dream car. I have wanted one since my first tour in Germany in 98. The military has taught me to work hard but to take a step back to play hard and enjoy life as well. Life can be very short, I want to enjoy what time I do have and be prepared for the long haul if I am fortunate enough to make it to the golden age. I finally have the means to afford the car now and am loving it. We are not rich but we make sacrifices so that we can have and enjoy this car without it ruining our finances.

Only 170ish responded? There are thousands of old farts like me (50+) bought M3s with cash not on the forum. The poll is for those on the the forum only, not very statistically significant.

Hi mate...

you aren't old buddy... Like i said to my brother 3months back, "Growing old is Mandatory... Growing up is Optional!". My bro is 38 btw. Having said that he bought a VW R32 48hrs after my sharing and he's now toying with that thing too much.

Take the results with a big grain of salt, there's no verification of whether or not people who respond are being honest. These polls usually skew ridiculously young.

How old are the people who drive M cars?

So I was looking around and couldn't find a thread on this subject.
But I was really curious to find out what the average age for an M3 driver is..

I know in the pervious M3, E46 model everyone that owned one was pretty young. 16 - 25 ..
But just from driving around I've spotted all kind of different age grounds. I saw this man with a Red E92 M3 that I swear was 65+ so.. that's cool

I'm a bit curious to see how many male or female drive M3zz too.

Example:
________________________
Sex: Male/ Female
Age: [xx]
