Am I the only one?

Late last year at the dealership, she said, "Get an M3, it'll be your car."

She wanted nothing to do with the M3 after I took her out twice as a passenger and promised that I'd be good. Both times I went back on my word before I even got to the end of the block...She did NOT like the whip lash, especially the 2nd time.[Damn, I didn't mean to. Seriously, it was an accident - both times!!!]

Several weeks back, she took the M3 to run an errand ............and I never got it back.

Today, as I'm driving home missing the M3 and I'm wondering now the X5 4.4l became my DD. and I look over on two separate occassions and see someone's gf/wife driving their bf/husband's M3's because their vanity plates gave it away - both times.....so I can't be the only one, whose lost their M3...... [won't post their plates, but come on, "DCT" on the plate?]

This may be a good thing for me....can you say, M5?

Cheers

Looks like you need to change your username from E93S65 to X544DD.

Actually, my wife is more committed to owning a manual transmission car than I am. That said, she finds the M3 too powerful for her tastes. She drives our 6-sp Audi A4 S-line Prestige. I must admit, it is just so easy to drive and a great DD.

My wife so far has not touch my M3. She can drive auto's only and I have the DCT and she's still intimidated by the unconventional "L" gear pattern alone... and I'm okay with that!

I purchased my 2013 Manual Trans, but its my wife's car and she drives it daily. She is more dangerous than I am in it. She said auto's are no fun.
