M3 owners can't drive

With the number of wheels for sale on here, it seems like 90% or more have some sort of curb rash. It seems that maybe M3 owners have no friends cause they don't know how to drive?

Or, perhaps they have no friends due to running them over since they cannot drive?

Seems like most of the people with curb rash end up blaming it on the girlfriend/wife. Not sure how true that is but could be the main culprit of curb rash for many owners.

I'll admit it, I am terrified of parallel parking the M3 without the GF spotting me. I won't drive the M3 if I anticipate having to park near a curb.

Dude, seriously?!?! Even with the function that tilts the passenger mirror down when you're in reverse so you can see the curb right there? Go out somewhere like a parking lot, lay down a strip of tape to represent a curb, and practice parallel parking without your wheels touching the tape. Then enjoy a life enhanced by lack of curb paranoia.

Or maybe M3 drivers have no friends because of hasty generalizations

Some tires offer a lot of sidewall protection when brushing up against a curb. You have really have to go out of your way to curb a wheel when you're running Pilot Super Sports that are not stretched.
