1994 Mazda MX-3 (bought this car for $3000 in college when the 626 died)

2000 Celica GT-S (my first new car out of college. my love for high revving N/A cars began here)

2003 IS300 (got married, wife couldn't drive a manual and could only afford 1 car so traded in the celica for a used IS300. hated it, but it was bulletproof. first RWD car.)

2008 E90 335i (bought new in 2008. first german car ever owned. wife and I shared it. first sub 15 second car. )

2009 135i (bought my first 2nd car. back to a 6MT for myself. the car that got me interested in BMW in the first place.)

2011 E92 M3 (current car. 6MT all for myself)

2011 E90 335i (current car. auto which my wife drives to work and we use for family trips)

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
