Red face Does your E9X M3 have a name?

Childish as it may seem, I tend to develop quite a bond with my cars. So, it seems logical to me to name them and ascribe certain, yet limited, human characteristics to them.

My E46 M3 was named Milly. I haven't come up with a good one for the E92 yet. I find myself wanting to call it Milly too, but, as I've documented here at the forum, I find the two vehicles to be completely different, and so, they must have different names. I'm still getting to know the E92, so it might take some time.

Anyone else willing to admit they engage in similar behavior? I can't be the only one, can I?

Every car I've owned has had her own personality and name. My M is Scarlett. Seems fitting since she's red, hot, and gets me into trouble.

My first car had no name. My Berlina Black S2000 was called Betty. My M3 is called Heidi.

M3 is my M3's name JK!

My Dad has a cool system. He names his cars after the sales person or the previous owner depending on if they are new or second hand. I don't name my cars though.

I guess I could call mine "Chlamydia"?

It burns down there when I drive it, but I can't help coming back for more.

J/K. I not really in the habit for naming my cars.

My E36 M3 is names William - the red headed step child. Sometimes when I am mad at him, I yell "heed!" (reference to So I Married an Axe Murderer)

My E92 M3 is named Stella
