Partied it up on Valentines Day instead of the 15th. GF and I went to see an 80+ year old crooner in a gigantic casino. Then we paid for poker lessons.

PG, They had an Omaha table going, but I had too much to drink and knew I could barely handle stud. The GF always does well at holdem, but she had the same handicap I was playing with.

Shows your age. When I think of BR, I think of Gator and big block Fords on clay roads circa 1971 (I was a ten year old).

I love the BR avatar.... and who doesn't love Smokey and the Bandit? I have fond memories watching that with my dad. I even bought a FireChicken just like the one in the movies when I was in high school!

Haha! I was just a toddler when those films were popular, but I've always been into the hot rod movies and the hot girls that were in them. LOL

I'm a product of the 80's. Made in 1980 to be exact

Damn, I must say I'm surprised how many people in their teens and very early twenties have M3's. I'd hate to see their insurance rates.

I got my E46 M3 when I was 23 and I couldn't believe the amount I paid for insurance. It was like paying for two cars.

thats exactly where i pictured it to be. it seems affordable 26-30 age groups...but thats sick to the 16-25 group who own the cars.. and some of the sicker cars on this forum are in that age group.. cant wait to join that stat..

39, but I should have bought the 01 back then. Instead I bought an S4, just because the dealer wanted 10K over list.

Very much so. I think this is a merged thread, so it is no longer sticking to the title, "Age of people who have PURCHASED their M3." To those 16-24 yr olds who have purchased their M3's on their own, congrats, you must be doing something right.

It's ridiculous isn't it? I almost bought a '96 M3 when I was 22, but the insurance and interest rate were much higher than the new '03 WRX I ended up buying.
