Received not one, but two thumbs up today.

First time that this has happened with this E92 M3. First one was this morning on the way to work by a guy in a VW. He was following me real close down the highway and when I moved over to get to the offramp he beeped, I looked over and he gave the .

This evening coming home a dude on a bike was coming up the onramp to the highway accelerating pretty good. I was in traffic. Not lots of traffic, but enough to slow down to about 10 under the limit. So, he's charging up the onramp then suddenly slows when he gets abeam of me. I look over and there it was again: .

Anyway, thanks for reading. I just had to write it up. Now if we could just all educate the hot girls about the M3 ...


Cheers.

Yeah, It breaks my heart every time a girl/lady calls my M a 3 series (well only happened once or twice so far).

(at the dealership picking up my car)
*random lady shopping for a 3 series comes by*
lady: how come your 335i looks so different from the other ones on this lot? is it that m-sport package?
^*facepalm*

(filling up at the gas station when some teenage girl driving a 328i walks to me)
girl: i like how you modded your car! is your car a 328 with 2 exhaust systems? or a 335 with 4 exhaust tips instead of 2?
^double facepalm


meh, its the small things like that add to the fun experience of owning one of these magical cars hahah

I would have told that lady that a BMW is not for her if she couldn't even tell the difference between an M and a 3series.


ouch... a 328... I don't care how hot she was no one says that about my car and gets away with it.

That says something. I just sold my 350Z that (along with mods including a NISMO spoiler, aluminum grill and Work wheels) got looks for more obvious reasons. A 'thumbs up' for an M3 is likely a pretty educated endorsement due to the cars balance between subtlety and aggressiveness.

I was getting gas a couple of weeks ago and there was a smoking hot milf at the pump next to mine and when we went into pay I got the door for her and she says "I really like your Mustang". I was speechless

I love the thumbs up.......... Having a Challenger here in Germany, I have had folks hang out their windows to get pics, film, and give thumbs up. Odd situation ....I was in a Stau (traffic jam) on the autobahn and some dude filmed me for about 10 minutes straight!!!!

I had a NY State Trooper give me a ticket for excessive tints on Wednesday.

The kid must have been half my age. Aren't there any enthusiasts in law enforcement?

To you and I and everybody else on this forum there is a difference between an M3 and a regular 3 Series. But the reality is that the M3 is a 3 Series that has been processed by the M division. For the same reasons, the M5 is also a 5 Series processed by the M division.

Some of us hot girls already know about the M3 but yes I agree as most of my friends think it's just a 3 series. I agree about the thumbs up though, last week it happened twice on the expressway and twice I was approached last week as well in the parking lot by guys who couldn't believe how sweet the car is. The car just seems to have it's own charisma.
