I will disagree with most members about the 325s and 328's being chick cars. People buy those maybe because they can't afford a 335. For all those rich people that can afford it, yeah, it's chicks car. For college students like me who wants a nice ride but can't afford twin turbos right now, It's a great daily driver.

i don't get why people are saying the E90 is a chick car if anything the E92/E93 are more of a chick car, in my school all the E92 have chicks behind them. I always thought people would agree with that but i guess not?

What of the Mazda Miata? I mostly see older men driving this car, it does not fit in any category that I noticed. I personally think it leans more towards women but why so many men drive them.

No. If for some weird reason you want a low quality plastic car that accelerates like a beast, you should buy it with a roof over your head. Otherwise you are just a raw biker chick or a transvestite.

The TC = definitely a chick car

But I think the e93 is also becoming somewhat of one too.

The e93 is without a doubt one of the BIGGEST chick cars out there. Like, I'm almost willing to place it right next to a white Jetta in terms of chick factor. At LEAST 9 out of every 10 e93s I see are driven by girls.

and then on the other side of it, my mom loves that she drives a dude car. she has a short wheelbase 06 7 series black on black w sport package and all the other shit with the huuuge 21inch wheels.
I'm sure M3 drivers are saying the same about your car. Let's face it, you got your car cause you can't afford the M3.

not necessarily...at all. I personally don't want a 335. They have too many problems, ie: fuel pumps. I don't want to be stranded somewhere in the middle of an intersection because my POS hpfp took a crap. And I also think that people don't want an m3 because they don't need and m3. The 335 gives you all the power they need so why get the shitty gas mileage at a time like this. Price does have some impact, but an m3's level of necessity is very low.

I'm just trying to push people away from getting convertibles. I can't stand them

Just a little bit more proof to my point, my boss is as gay as they come and his last 3 cars were: Mercedes SL500, Aston Martin DB9 convertible and now an F430 convertible. Needless to say, he lives in Miami.
