****New M3 annual income poll****

Just want to see what's the average income for the average E90/92 buyer?

Hopefully this is not a repost.

I think this is too personal and not an appropriate topic.

LOL, I don't think it is, for this specific niche forum.

These threads always are received differently.

People will answer if they wish. Some always do.
How much you make tends to get overblown as some people seem to think it it is a closely guarded secret that noone else can know.

I'm not sure I see why it is such a big secret to some people.

Gotta say I am surprised to see the sub $50k early numbers. I know Fifth is in there, from his previous postings.

Given that m3post's age demographic skews lower than the average M3 buyer (or at least the average 3 buyer) will the income skew low too? Hmmm..

I have no problem with such a poll. It is best to keep it anonymous though as it will tend to be more accurate. That being said you can not restrict the votes to current, potential, likely nor certain M3 owners. Lots of folks that will never buy the car will probably vote. Your result is then what is the distrubution of income at m3post.com

Last point, based on the replies thus far you needed to go over $150k.

How is it reasonable to make sub $50k and buy a $70k car?

$60,000 / 60 months = $1,000 / month provided 0% interest.

add insurance, gas and some small stuff you are looking at $1500 / month!

Hmm...maybe it's a good thing I didn't see this poll before I bought my 328.
Rich or poor, I truly envy all of you who are getting this amazing piece of metallic a$$.
