Best respect moments you got in your ///M car?

Let us face it. We own BMW's and we own ///M cars, we usually get some stereotypical hate.

What are the best respect moments you received in your M car (or around it if you are standing next to it Brian O'Connor Fast and Furious style)?

For me, I have gotten waves/thumbs ups from fellow BMW owners in non-M cars. I got a thumbs up I specifically remember from a Cayman S on back roads going the other direction.

The other thing, my M car seems to get a lot of weekly Cars & Coffee after gallery love and respect.

What about you?

A Mini staying with me on the interstate, driver (dude) was hanging out of the car snapping pictures of this beastie for a mile or so...wtf!


Teenager (another dude) came up to me in a parking lot gushing over this beastie asking to take pics. Other thumbs up and "looking good" "sounds good" comments here and there...always dudes.

I have a beater hyundai elantra I use for commuting 3 or 4 days a week and I take the m3 the other 1 or 2 days out of the week. I get ZERO road respect in the hyundai. People cut me off, if I'm in the fast lane wishing to go faster than the person in front of me, they don't really get out of my way, thry will try to (and succeed) out accelerate me, etc.. This bullshit occurs much less in the m3. For the most part nobody cuts me off in the //M, they tend to get out of my way more, they don't try to out accelerate me, etc. Night and day from one car to the other.

Had a guy in a newer wrx last week do a full 180 with his forehead against the drivers window looking back to get a glimpse of my m as he drove past. Made my night.

I drive this car for me. Other than friends and family, I couldn't give a shit about how others respond to my car. For the most part people on the roads are too busy texting and driving like assholes no matter what car I drive. And most people have no idea what an m car is, to them it's just another run of the mill bmw. Cars and coffee, that's another story. Where enthusiasts gather, what you have can be better recognized and appreciated.

Before the M3 I had a E60 M5. My wife and I were going to Nantucket for vacation from Kentucky and close to the ferry dock a Ferrari 430 Spyder passed us and he gave ME a thumbs up. I always told my wife my M5 was special, but it was only then that she finally realized what we had, a big four door rocket ship. She still tells that story today.

I've gotten thumbs up from other drivers, usually in another BMWs or nice cars, so its people who actually know what a M3 is. Most people don't know the difference between a M3 and a bicycle. There's a lot of Mennonite communities near where I live and it is kind of interesting to see their reactions when I'm driving through and passing them in their horse and buggies - its like a century difference in technology. Otherwise, it doesn't really matter to me what other peoples reactions are, I feel good driving it so that's all that matters to me.

I'll go a bit different in my reply. Here are things that have NEVER happened in 7 years of M3 ownership:

- a girl coming up to me asking if that's an M3 and can she hear it.
- a thumbs up from a vette driver.

I have the ipe exhaust and I definitely like to have fun. I've honestly never gotten a dirty look from someone or a negative remark in regards to the volume . But I'm still surprised when people, much older react like little kids when they hear how raw it sounds. Something about a v8 that brings the veteran car crowd and the new age together and I love it.
