M3 Poser?

Guy's today I was first hand experiencing what a REAL ///Poser was meaning.

Before it was more or less just hearsay.

Here's the situation and I would like to know if ANYONE of you EVER experienced something I did today.

Ok, deep breath in...let's start.

I was driving wifey to shopping and accidentially spotted today an heavily modded M3 E92, funny part ( that's the funniest part of this story: car looked exactly as mine, except the spoilers, GTS, rims, akrapovic.. ya'll get the point)
Well, whatever I parked my car as wifey went shopping, I went checking out an nicely done twin.
Felt 20 second's later a guy sungoogle's on with a washed out ///M shirt appeared behind me and was like:
Oooh ya like that car, don't you, huh?
Yes, really good looking, see you did the GTS wheel's and Performance seat's cool stuff, man!
Then the dude started getting a little weeird as he was starting to talk this:
Yeah, that's my daily beater, I also own an orange one I just bought BRAND NEW a few week's ago and also an 1 M ...then kinda started even he was smaller then me...to look down on me you know the way he was pronouncing his word's and I kind of had the feeling he was on I-can-buy-the-world-roid's.

I don't know...why he gave me that information but uuuhm well he did.
Well very shortly after, he was popping his hood and also showing me his carbon intake and all the time kind of having this see-that-bitch?-I'm-richer-then-you-attidude, wich I don't like and also don't practice.
Eventhough the guy started on and on to provocate/ intimidate me with line's as:

Your probably not an real ///M guy because your not cool enough
or
Yeah...that's stuff you dream off, right?
or
20k putt'n in this baby an U???
or
Bought it new, even paid the 2.5k for first inspection...

I kept beeing the polite guy and finally wifey came from shopping so I got the f** out of that strange situation.

I really never experienced such behavior and just wanted to know if anyone else of you had some similiar run-in's?

Why should I brag infront of an stranger what the f*** I call my own and what a hot cat I really am?

That's why some people never come to car-meet's because of idiot's as mentioned....

Had a similar experience but with a 335i that the exterior was all done to match a M3 it looked good until I started looking closer and saw the interior lol laughed and walked away

Yeah I couldn't laugh because I was really shocked how such a person that don't know's me nor my background just start's talking smack to me and even showing off how many car's it's owning...the only guess I have is, the person might got intimidated by me from the first second...otherwise I'm

Threw me off as well; I think he's using the word 'poseur' incorrectly, but I get the gist of what he means

Laugh it off and go hangout with your lady next time. There will be a next time. Unfortunately, money can a personality. But it can buy a nice car or 3 I guess.

Poser is the guy decked out head-to-toe in Ferrari gear, with no Ferrari to speak of.

He's got issues. I don't get how he can brag when he's driving the same car as the person he's bragging to.

I always question whether 80% of the stories I read on the internet are true, because they sound so ridiculous. Now don't get me wrong, not calling you a liar, but this story just sounds absurd. I am sure it's true. If you were less well respected on these boards, I would say maybe you were trolling, but I believe you. My question is, where the hell do you find these people? I have never in my life had a conversation filled with such egotism and douchbaggery as what you describe.

Me? I would've said "that's nice" and walked away long before you did. How do you put up with such asshattery?

^^This. First I would have asked him if I could hear the exhaust at 8300rpm, parked.

Hi Vsix, sounds like an odd experience. Did he understand you had a similar motor? No comment about that, just kept shouting about his stuff?

Take away - You're a gent putting up and spending valuable time even when approached by a jerk. Kudos.

Cheers
