We have three M3 traditions:

- We are posers
- We are cocks
- We have no friends

Let me correct myself.

Not getting floor mats as standard is a BMW tradition unless you get a 5 or 7 series.

Those who got it "free" indirectly paid it as part of the package when paying; so it is not 100% free as the dealership probably took the cost under into consideration when dealing. Same thing with maintenance. It isn't free. Nothing is free.

And on many occasions, wear our Members Only jackets while being a poser, cock and friendless.

Racing through traffic and cutting everyone you pass off is the only BMW tradition I've seen on the road.

Piss as many people off on the road as possible? And a day with honking is a good one?

true that. don't forget to flip the bird through the sunroof or, if you have the CF roof, always keep your window open and try to pass on the right so you don't miss an opportunity to give them the bird.
