How many women own M3s?

I just purchased my first M3 and the dealer said this was the first one they had ever sold to woman. I am just curious how many female M3 owners are out there?

BTW, I love the car. I got it with everything but the performance package. I never knew how much fun driving could be.

Thumbs up

Congratulations on your new purchase! I don't know the statistics but am sure woman M3 drivers are a select segment.

What color did you get? Please post pics

Hey! I live in Fairfax, too. I've see a few M3s and two M coupes sometimes.

I will take a picture when its clean. Jet black shows the dirt.

I chose SMG. If I wanted to drive a stick every day I would get an M5 ( like my husband). I love his car. But I love my SMG!

We are a family of M cars.....

How many of you folks actually DRIVE your M3's?

You know what I'm talking about. When I had my M, I was going through tires every 5-7k miles.

I recently passed my break-in period (yeah, how frustrating is that driving time - nothing over 105 and no passing 5 rpms.... ) So I took her on a smokin' drive up the 5 with a adrenalin raising cruise down the Big Sur 1.

Yummy......

Yep, count in one more lady lovin' her M
