No, it just means your parents have deeper pockets with holes in them.

Didnt really mod it and had no issues with the roof. Then again I didnt keep it for long.

Its not a luxury car, its pretty raw so I didnt mind the rattles.

I love these sorts of stories . You can't truly appreciate an M3 without having this sort of past experience. My list:

1995 Suzuki/Maruti 800 - 800 cc engine, 30 hp when it was new, 4 speed manual with a defective synchro. 40 mph in the thing felt like 120 in my current ride . Got me through high school, nuff said. It looked like this (but without the Ferrari stickers)



2000 Mitsubishi lancer - 2 L engine, 90+hp. Felt like a race car after the suzuki. 5 speed manual gearbox. Drove it for only a couple years. It looked like this:



2007 Toyota RAV4 - practical but boring, Only came with a 4 speed autobox. Traded it in for the M3

2010 E90 M3 - current
