Max may be home to the 1% that actually own their new bmws for the shear pleasure of driving.

I don't want to get to into the whole one is better then the other, but when nodding a 40 to 80 grand car, that they will drop 5000 in rims to look good, what's the point of cheaping out when it comes to ecu tuning? Guess it image and bragging over bubble tea not much more.

And the coment on people driving older bmws being reckless, it the driver not the car, an asshole in an e30 is the same asshole in an e90!
Yup; as I would like to believe - I drive, because I like to drive... BMW just happens to be my muse... I wish for more, but alas... I can't afford it I am satisfied with the feel... yes, there will always be faster and better rides than my own... but hey... what'd ya gonna do
