While looking to buy an M3 I saw online that the local Nissan dealer had a used M3 on their lot, I decided to check it out. (The BMW dealer didn't have any). As I drove around the lot looking for the car a younger sales guy (18-24) stopped me and asked me if I needed help.

Me: Is the M3 on this lot or your other one?
Him: Is that a hatch back?
Me: Um...no the sedan.
Him: who makes that?
Me: BMW
Him: let me go ask my manager.
Me: (Hand slap to forehead)

Guess age is knowledge.

It's fine if someone says something trully ignorant, or is extremely insistent they know more than they do, or in a position they should know better, but people should cut out the attitude where they come off as saying "an M3 is so awesome that everone should know all the details about them and if you don't then you're a moron" or "because I own an M3 I'm so awesome I can look down on other" They must have very small penises and need to use their cars to look down on people to feel better about themselves or something....
I think it's ok to make fun of certain people:

1. Sales and maintenance people working at a BMW facility.

2. Self proclaimed car enthusiasts, or people insisting they know more about your car when they are clearly wrong.

3. People who own M3's and know nothing about them.

4. Midgets. Just kidding.

Phoenix Yellow is very rare color. I've only seen 1 here in Bay Area.
