I'm 14. I can't legally drive, but I've owned 7 M3's dating back to the 60's. I'm a major airline pilot in my spare time, but my passion is action figures!

I never want this thread to end!!!

Cool! No need to tell how old you are - I've had M3 for 2.5 years - am married with 2 kids and my wife is the only female driver of an M3 that I've seen - cool there's another female M3 driver in Chicago area.

Then you should be driving a much nicer car than an M3 Maybe a 458 and a private jet to fly you to it.

Corvette is a mature car?? If getting old means you lose sense of style and taste, then by all means a corvette is a car for the mature audience. Oh and that V6 Accord is a real masterpiece too....

M3 for me at 26, am grown up and established though; started and co-manage a hedge fund. I have plans to keep the m3 as my daily driver car, but for my true sports car, it will be a something else in "supercar" status next year. Depending on how much I like the new M5, I might trade the M3 in for that as that is a more practical daily driver than the 3. I do love the M3 though.... so tough call it would be.

I do agree that the M3 is a bit "young" of a car. I'm surprised so many young people can afford it; yet I think it's also important to note the type of people that would come onto a forum. I think for the most part it is younger people involved in online forums so its probably doesn't give a real great idea of the overall population that drives the M3.

Lol reminds me of my month long midshipman cruise on a sub. Yes, they get paid a lot. And yes, they like to revel in the fact that they're a part of the nuclear "silent service." But, one officer made a comment when we connected to a chat server as we came up to periscope depth to transfer data. I believe the comment was "yea, we get to speak to the whole battlegroup for a couple hours on chat, sometimes you get to talk to chicks!"

One of the reasons why I'm now a SWO.
