Front end looks means! Would hate to see that coming up in my mirror if I was racing against it.

Simple....98.9% of M3 owners are posers.

(Before you flame me...I have owned every gen M3 except the e30 and have road raced competitively in highly modded e36 and e46 M3s. My current ride is b/c I needed a Daddy Mobile that was all-wheel drive but I miss my e90 M3 badly.)

I'm so excited that BMW is in DTM as I have missed their presence in F1, which is my #1 series to follow. I like ALMS but the TV coverage sucks and I don't have time to watch it. But I have been an Auberlin/Hand fan since they were at PTG. Met Bill Auberlin once too....super great guy and he gave me props on my e46 racer

DTM is coming to the states in '13. Now THAT should be exciting. I bet you'll see a huge push for stateside BMW support just before that starts. I, for one cant wait for that. And i agree with the sentiment some of you suggested in that most M3posters arent necessarily race fans which is a bit contradictory considering what the M brand is really all about. Also considering the popularity of modding among M3post members. I dont know that I'd use the word poser though. The other side of the argument is this: does every ferrari owner have to follow and be into racing? I mean considering THEIR racing heritage and history, this argument would dictate that. I mean, how can you possibly own a ferrari and NOT follow their F1 team, right? Sounds a bit silly, no? I actually get both sides of the argument. I happen to be a motorsports fan but know plenty of sportscar owners (you name the brand) that dont know the first thing about an apex or even tire pressure for that matter.

But i agree, itīs the pinnacle of motorsports in a way.
Question is why you stopped watching it?
I never stopped watching F1. I stopped paying attention to BMW Motorsports
