What a sad picture you paint. To recap:

You are a triathlete, but never won a single race.

You are an authority on new cars, but drive a used one.

You have money, but drive around searching for diesel fuel to save a nickel.

You like music, but think dubstep is an awesome listen.

You are police trained to an A1 standard, yet can't save yourself from message-board humiliation.

You write BMW articles for top National newspapers, but no one here cares what you have to say.

You were educated in racing by a top Lotus driver, yet you drive a Station Wagon.

I am crying for you right now. Really, I am. Please let me know how to help you. Surely there is a foundation we can donate to. You are not driving a Station Wagon. You are driving a Sports Wagon. There. Better? You are the real Buzz Lightyear. You are not a toy.

Here, let me clear up the confusion.

The way I understand it, the only way to be a "truthful" M-Sport driver is to buy an M3 and then substitute M-Sport body panels on it.

You are an authority on new cars, but drive a used one. I have owned many new cars. Used makes more sense.

You have money, but drive around searching for diesel fuel to save a nickel. I got it for the torque not the mpg. Something your car is woefully short of. If I wanted a budget car, I would have not paid over $35,000 in cash for my 335d. We also have a petrol 4x4 and speed boat. All paid for.

You like music, but think dubstep is an awesome listen. Yes and many other genres - most people into music are the same.

You are police trained to an A1 standard, yet can't save yourself from message-board humiliation. Eh? Tell me about sustained gearchanges, defensive driving, road positioning, explain the understeer your AWD BMW suffers from then we can talk.

You write BMW articles for top National newspapers, but no one here cares what you have to say. According to you and you only. You who gets regularly laughed at on here

You were educated in racing by a top Lotus driver, yet you drive a Station Wagon. He owns a Focus estate.

I am crying for you right now. Really, I am. Please let me know how to help you. Surely there is a foundation we can donate to. You are not driving a Station Wagon. You are driving a Sports Wagon. There. Better? You are the real Buzz Lightyear. You are not a toy.
