1. A lot of younger girls always scream out "nice car" or something like that

2. This is the best one: I see two young boys with their dad walking around "Cars and coffee" one of them quickly walks up to my car peering in the grills. I ask if he wants to see the engine, his eye lit up like a Christmas tree and had a grin ear to ear. I opened my hood and his eyes got bigger and he calls his brother over and says "Look dad! That's nothing like yours!" (dad drives an x5 with the 3.0i in it) The other brother stops, looks at his dad and then looks at me and asks if he could hear it. I started it up and rev'd if a few good times.

His dad had nice things to say as well but he said thank you to me for making the boys day.

Only 1 really good one that has made me laugh a little.

My car was made to look like a matchbox toy car:



Kinda mad about those fingerprints though.

Btw - Never saw this picture until a friend told me that said person was using it as a profile picture on FB.

Also had a GTR roll next to me and take a picture on the highway and give me a thumbs up. I also had a van throw a dildo at my car as well going 80 past them on the highway...it's been through interesting times.

If you look really closely, this pic is proof as to the real benefit of having a rearview camera hidden in the trunk Roundel. What? its to ward off finger prints of course...

I'm surprised a couple of you said people ask if its an M3. I don't think most people would even know its a BMW if not for the 17 roundels on the outside. I do still get tons of questions/compliments on the car whenever I'm at the gas station. For some reason people seem to be more comfortable approaching you at the gas station to ask questions. I do admit its part of the appeal of the car for me, driving something that most people don't know much about. I'm not sure when it became okay to ask how much it costs though. Really? Nobody ever taught you that was rude?

One of my buddies calls it the 'Ace and Gary' car which I do not appreciate, although it is kind of funny.

I'd be more like a sky camera...to make sure it's not stormy weather above.

Ohhh....you get what I mean...

-Is that a Porsche?!
-sweet m3!
-what year is it? its an 06?!?! i thought it was new!
The best compliment though, there is a local meet and for once there are probably ten bmw's, the M always gets the most attention! love it!


It wasnt the M but my all time favorite: some time ago i was in my 05 electric blue Evo VIII in a parking lot waiting to for a friend to come down from an apartment. A guy pulls up behind me in an srt-4 and starts snapping pictures on his phone. I took a peek out the window, his face turned beet red, laughed and drove off briskly. Had no idea i was still in the car!

This beats the tampon on my windshield that was waiting for me after a movie one night.

... but I'm surprised the dildo didn't crack your windshield at that speed?

i get more nervous when people start walking up to it, touching it, putting their faces up to my windows (car is unoccupied of course)...but it freaks me out everytime i walk out of a store to that site.

I did have what looked like a 7 yr old girl tell me "your wheels are random" (3-pc work meisters...must be a bbs fan)....when I came back to my car to see her and her dad checking it out

Interesting indeed. Dildo? WTF? "So sir, for the claim form, how did the windshield get broken?"

I had guy in what I think was a Chrysler K car pull up next to me at a stoplight and ask about the car, gave me a thumbs up, told me how lucky I was to have it.

My wife has cops give her the thumbs up (city, highway). P Turbo, 'Vette Z04, several other folks go out of their way to talk cars with her.

But I've never had a dildo thrown at the car. I think I can live with that.

Oh man, I've gotten so much attention from girls of all ages, I don't even know where to begin

My favorites are the ones that ask me out on the spot
I'm sure they're just joking, and of course I wouldn't go for a gold-digger, but it's flattering nonetheless

A girl I once knew, admittedly not the brightest one I have ever known, once said that the car looked like a penis. I always thought that a personalized plate of "PRIK MBL" or something of that nature would be a nice touch...

Hmm... are you sure they were paying attention to your car and not your speed?

Yikes...

Well...I was in the far left lane and they were in the center..

They held it out their window and started shaking it...that's why I knew what it was...I went WOT to get past them and they just tossed it out of the window expecting it to hit my car. They wind took it and threw it over my car. Thankfully it never hit.

One of my faves from an old british lady who lives in my loft building:

"a classic beauty, reminiscent of the etype"

Another from a kid:

"that thing is a hot rod!"

one of my least faves:

"is that the new folding roof 2010 Z4?" (back in 2010)

- teenagers snapping pictures in parking lots
- one guy (admittedly an idiot) asks if the car cost $150,000
- lots of people say "is that the new one?"
- some hardcore car enthusiasts go nuts over it, but interestingly it doesn't get that much attention at the local Cars & Coffee

And there goes your chance to sell it at a bargain basement price of $75,000!!!

Ok good. Glad you cleared that up. I'd be afraid if you could identify a dildo flying through the air at 70mph+
