Would you buy an M3 if you won a lottery?

I'm assuming this topic has been discussed and I believe most of people would top off from 10 millions and above.. so how about you've only won 1-5 millions before tax deduction without a lump sum choice?

EDIT:
i.e.:
You've won 4 millions, so you will get $150,000 after tax a year without a lump sum choice.

in that case, would you guys still buy an exotic car like Ferrari, Lambo, Aston, etc..?

I think I'd pick up an F430 Challenge Stradale or a 458 Italia

I'd probably buy an LP560-4 and then send it to UR for a twin turbo setup.

okay, let's just assuming that you've won $4 millions, so you will get $150,000 after tax a year without a lump sum choice.

in that case, would you guys still buy an exotic car like Ferrari, Lambo, Aston, etc..?

Yes, the $150k per year that you pull in after taxes is merely extra money that I never would have received had I not invested that $1 for the ticket; therefore, I would still buy an exotic car. Hell, you can pick up a used Gallardo for under 135k and less than 5k miles on it or even a 997 GT2 for under 150k...Then, with the massive amount of money you get from your tax return, you can mod the shit out of said exotic car. Then you have 19 more years of an extra 150k to do with as you please...

You're absolutely right!! but I guess that would definitely works out IF you're alone without family, relatives, new house, etc... involved. That's how typical people thinks before they hit the jackpot. However, in reality those things does get involved regardless you wish or not. At that point, your big pie will split into pieces... How ironic..... LOL

Well obviously I would consider all of the people mentioned; in fact, IF I ever won the lottery, I would most definitely take care of my family first (pay off the remainder of the parents' mortgage, pay for med school for sis, etc.)...still wouldn't stop me from getting a sexy ass car!

If I got 150K a year I'd save half of it every year and after 2 years I'd buy a used Gallardo or F430. Nothing overboard for a few years lol

I'd be calling Christian Von Koenigsegg and ordering one up in raw carbon.

He's on my speed dial you know. LOL.

Family first. Pay off my parents' houses. Then pay off my car, then get myself my own place. Then after that I would get a 997.2. I wouldn't consider an M3 at all.

Only M I would buy is an E30 M3. Think I'd purchase the CTS-V over the E90 M3.

Couple years into it I may buy a used Murcielago for weekends. Would keep a beater for my DD and call it good on the car front.

Oh and uh... would definitely purchase one of these:

I would buy the new M1 !!!!

Sure exotic cars are cool and all, but ya can't practically use them to go to the grocery store or HomeDepot etc. Whereas the new M1, that will have mind blowing performance while still being practical for everyday use.

Oh, and I would have a lawyer on retainer for all the speeding citations I will accumulate!

I'm sure I would get at least one m3. Not like it will break the bank. E46 would probably be included in my purchases.

I would pay mine off....and probably trade my DD(07 Dodge RAM 1500) for an X6. Wife already has an X5, we would pay that off too...

I think the down economy has turned me semi-frugal.

I would probably have a Reventon race car bed made up for myself. Reventons are damn sexy and I never had a race car bed as a kid. Having as much money as I would (after a few years, anyways), it would just be "one of those weird things rich people do."
