Not if you live in L.A. and recently bought a house (within the last year).

Median price for a house in Irvine is reacing $750,00. For someone making $200,000+ a year it'd be somewhat financially irresponsible to own an M3...The insurance and upkeep plus the monthly payment and mortgage would basically mean nearly 85% of your monthly take home goes to the car and the house. A little too close for comfort if you ask me.

Rest of the country its another matter.
"Bench racing" about track times driven by professionals are like a bunch of nerds arguing which Princess Leia is hotter, the slave Leia or the no-bra jail-bait Leia. No matter how compelling your argument is, the plain and simple fact is, none of you will EVER get to hit that.
