How many M3 Drivers are actually in this Forum

I discovered something interesting and that is that the persentage of individuals that voted in the previous polls here are only a very small percentage of individuals compared to the individuals that actually entered and read the pool then simply left. For example.

Poll Number 1; Over 180 votes on Age Group, Type of Purchase and Type of Cell Phone with over 1,300 Views to the pool. If you have not seen the poll and like to check on this poll you can simply click CLICK

Poll Number 2; Over 150 votes on the Dipstick question again with over 1,300 Views to the pool. If you have not seen the poll and like to check on this poll you can simply click CLICK

So this then prompted me to issue this poll (above) to ask the following questions;-

1) Does the individual actually drive a M3
2) Does the individual plan to purchase a M3 in the near future
3) Does the individual drive another fine BMW
4) Did the individual check out the pool for curiosity
5) Did the individual click by mistake on this poll
6) The visitor is just not a friend of any M3 driver for we have no friends


So if you read the above you are required to vote the objective here is that the number you see in Replies and Views must always be the same (or at least very close to one another). If the numbers are not the same in the Replies and Views Columns then you are to blame having broken the chain.

So please vote and have fun doing so Thanks, it should be fun ...


UPDATE: I just figured out that Replies and Views can never be the same (just the way this works here). Replies only count if someone leaves a post so keep on voting anyway and disregard my comments about Views and Replies.

I joined shortly before I bought. I knew I was buying an M3 or used 911. So I'm #1, I actually drive one. I have lurked around this forum for a couple years though. I've owned BMW's since 2008.

Like yourself I've visited here for the past 2 years ever since I purchased my new Z4 (now traded for the M3). I owned a M3 e46 for almost 7 years and never was part of any forum. I guess once a M3 driver always an M3 driver

I sold my e46 last year and this is my sixth BMW, still have my first one e28 a 535is we are restoring the car right now

Happy motoring and thanks for voting.

BTW I think this is the best forum on the net, a great bunch of fellows here

I joined before I ever bought my car because I was looking at a 335i and M3 and wanted to learn as much as I could before I made my decision

I drive a Corolla. Next car is going to be an M3 barring unforseen brutal circumstances. Whether I buy new or used depends on my work situation over the next 6 months.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you that you achieve your goal with the M3, it is a great car. Look first for a nice e46 (I had a 2002 M3 silver and loved it). Good luck with the job situation as well

Great bunch of people here ... I know we have no friends (according to Jeremy Clarkson)

So at least we are all friends here

I used to drive a Civic... still do I guess (my wife's car). I loved the fact that it was cheap, easy to mod, and fun to drive. Nothing wrong with driving a Corolla bro... just saying.

I hope everything works out and you get finally own an M3; Good luck!

I do it gives us great results don't you think? For example I found out so far that I am the oldest around them here parts at 74 I feel like 55 and young at heart having fun every day There is another fellow here (who knows might even be a lady at over 65).

You will properly have even more fun when you reach that milestone

Mind you the polls are just a cross section of M3 drivers in North America, bet there are many ... many more (not part of this or any other forum). I for one drove my e46 M3 for almost 7 years and never ever was a member of any forum so there you have it ... as I said a small cross section only, still interesting
