    I am loving this thread, glad to hear there is some interest in our cars.

    So I took my car to the track last Friday for an HPDE. After a session, I opened the hood to let her cool off and went to take a break under a shade tree. When I started walking back, I noticed a small crowd around my car. My first thought was oh crimony is something wrong. Turns out it was just a bunch of folks checking out the engine bay. As I walk up one of the guys is saying "What happened to BMW, how come they don't make a car like this anymore?"

    After introducing myself, I spent a some time answering questions and talking about her. I have to admit it was sort of fun.

    I had an e46 M3 driver "love-tap" the car in front of him a few summers ago because he was staring at my car. I had driven it for about 3 weeks at this point. (no damage to any car from the lovetap, fortunately.)

    i've gotten offers on the freeway onramp to buy the car (all declined of course). and i have also been on the other end leaving notes to people that i see in parking lots. randomly i found my twin, same rims, exhaust, shifter knob, color, etc. i was quite surprised because anything other than an E30 M3 on BBS's is hard to come by

    i drive my car to work probably once a week, a couple weeks ago i came back to my M and found a note asking if was willing to sell. I called the guy and kindly declined :-) i did offer my E23 though, haha. In the last year or so, i've had one guy stop me at a light and roll down the window to give me props, he was in an E46 M3 and the same for a fellow in an E39 540i. right now i have a "waiting list" for about 4 people who have dibs on my car come the day i sell...which i hope won't be for a looong time.

    I remember like a day after I bought my M3, I saw an Audi S4 in the distance of my rear view mirror weaving in and out of cars to catch up. He finally gets up next to me and signals to roll down the window and offers to buy my car. And by no means is my car "clean." For an M3, my car looks like CRAP. And with the kids in the windows, I've seen plenty of 6 y/o boys with their face on the glass staring at the car... What can I say? They've got good taste.

    Nicest one was one month ago in a 100kmh zone to the nurburgring I was driving behind a car in a construction zone noticing a car on the left lane that had free space in front but did not pass. When I looked over all I saw was a 5 or 3 series (didnt realise) but with camouflage (prototype).
    The test driver pointed to the car -- gave me thumbs up -> and floored it. Man I had such a big grin on my face and was so proud on my old box on wheels like a little kid .

    I was driving home late from town in the early hours of Sunday morning in my first ever M3 and as the roads were a little quiet and eary I wasn't in any mood to hang about. There was a police car coming in the opposite direction and I just knew he would turn round and give chase. Looking in the mirror, on come his brake lights and sure enough, he turned round. I slowed a little more and kept to just over the speed limit when he pulled right up behind me and flashed his blues at me to pull over.

    I got out the car and he walked upto me and said.. "Don't worry, you havn't done anything wrong, I just wanted to take a close look at one of these! Awesome car!" After chatting about the car for about 15 minutes, he said, "Ok mate, on your way, but although I know the roads are quiet, keep your speed down "

    Nice! lol.

    I've also noticed way more attention lately than in the first 10 years I owned my M3. Every drive I seem to get some pos feedback. As for most other BMW (non M) owners, I just assume they don't even know what an E30M3 is, they bought for status. If it wasn't for the kidney grills, they'd probably assume it's something out of the "fast and furious".

    The VW Boys here in NJ always stop and look when I drive by. They give me alot props. I think they know the car becuase of a specific shop close by that does nothing but motor swaps in our cars... :udone:

    Happens from time to time here in NY but there are so many around here it's not that rare a car.

    The best one from this summer so far is a guy in an E39 540 and a CCA sticker who proceeded to yell to me.

    "Yeah brother, E30 is where it's at!"

    Lately I have been surprised at all the attention my M3 has been getting too. Personally I like the "Q ship" approach to cars but mine being red and having a wing makes it hard to be stealthy. I love driving my 02 WRX wagon for the surprise factor tho. It's dyno'd at 300hp and frustrates many a ricer and diesel pickup truck wanker. :-)

    Just like me, a guy on his mid-50's, no young'un on her right mind would care to trot over and start up a conversation.....only gearheads of the same mind would strike up a conversation.

    Its funny but I started a post on the E90 board about the difference between driving a 335 around and an E30 M3. No one even bats an eyelash at the 335, but I get honks, waves, thumbs up, and people rolling down the window to talk about the car when ever I take the M3 out. The best was 4 mechanics and the parts guy at the dealer hanging out next to the car talking about it when I came out from picking up some stuff. I even had some S2000 guys tell me they would happily trade me cars. It’s cool that I don’t get the “body kit 325/318” comments anymore. Don't have the "MILF" effect though. Quite the opposite. My wife (and mom of two) hates riding in the car.
