That says it all, and I've been there and hope to never work at a law firm again. For those of you who don't know, the "politics" can extend to such things as cars, dress, hairstyle, and personal relationships in terms of appropriateness.

By the way, I purchased my M6 a week ago, after previously owning 2 6 Series convertibles, and cannot imagine driving any other type of car. [But if I still worked at a law firm, I would never drive it to work.]
