So what? He drives a 318. Big deal.
Would I like an M3? Yes. Can I afford one? Yes. Do I need one? no.
Driving a 318 does not make me any less of a BMW fanatic - I know all the models available, I know the internal codes, I know the option packages, I know the company history, I keep anything that has to do with BMW, I go to BMW events, did BMW driver training, you name it.
Driving a 318 does not make me any less of a BMW customer. 3 BMW's. Apart from the 318, there's also an 06 325i and an 09 F650GS.
Driving a 318 does not make me less of a BMW driver. I appreciate the products for what they are. I drive the products as the designers meant for them to be driven. I have tracked and autoxed both the 318 and 325 on multiple occasions. I have taken the GS on trails in Collingwood.
Why did I write all this? I couldn't really care that you don't like my car. I like yours BTW. But I find your prejudice against other BMW fans based on the BMW they drive outright despicable.
