Why do people keep posting on this pointless thread? This argument is futile. It is asinine to discuss how much one should make to be able to buy an M3 because they are owned by all types with varying or no income (the 17 year old with generous parents). If the original poster was looking to try to figure out the average income of M3 owners or to get a cross section of what kind of people buy M3s, he or she should have thought about how to better phase the question of this poll to avoid such ridiculous responses.
