And who do you think you are? You're acting like very wealthy man (which I doubt you are, above average at most) who looks down on other people less unfortunate as you. You're bragging about an getting an M5 like it's a Maybach or something. Also, you seem to be really jealous of young people having better cars than you? Buddy, it's just a 3 series. A lot of young ones can afford that whether it's used or new. Who are you to decide what cars they should buy? Just because they're young they have to drive Civics?

BTW, I'm old and I don't need to buy a car for the brand. I bought my brand new 2011 750i because it performs well, perfect for the family, and best (IMO) choice for my budget. Please, stop being so ignorant.
One of the benefits of wealth is the ability to feel God-like and look down upon others.

Don't voice your opinion of me in the same way I won't voice my opinion of you. I am commenting on the BMW owning population as a total, not you specifically.

What irks me is how hypocritical so many of us are here on Bimmerfest. BMW spent millions to develop the persona of status, yet because a few people feel like "Gee, it's not cool to flaunt it" there's this reverse-status thing where BMW owners make themselves feel ashamed, like they should put themselves down just to try to make Mr. & Mrs. Sonata feel like we're good people.

Well, we're not good people. No matter how hard we try, Mr. & Mrs. Camry aren't going to cut us a break and see our goodness. They see the roundel, they assume we're snooty scum, they write us off.

Stop fighting it already. Stop pretending to be something you're not. Embrace the stereotype.

Anyway, I like your new catch phrase, Become a Janitor. It makes sense, since even a janitor living in Bergen County with a third place trophy wife and a used Rolex can afford a 2009 328i with leatherette nowadays
I could easily become a janitor if I wanted to yet still be perceived as a wealthy vice president of a Fortune 500 company because I drive a BMW.

BJ, I'm curious about two things. First, why you've listed your car as simply an M328i under "Mein Auto"? Would you not agree that an M needs a proper title and that title is ///? I look forward to your correction; ///M328i! I hope to own an ///M one day and I hate to see it's cache diluted by careless handling.
Second, why did you go for the ///M328i? You've so eloquently pointed out in the past that Mr and Mrs C don't see anything after the Roundel. Mission accomplished. The ///M then returns little value for the money. Or is it about the kids who do see past the Roundel to the ///M badging, linger admiringly and think "I want to be like him one day!" as you do donuts out of the McDonalds parking lot?

I drive my status sled to work everyday in work boots, jeans and with a hard hat in the passenger seat. Am I still perceived with such fashion by others?

I think this would be the opposite kind of reaction you'd like to see in that situation.

I don't see the point of a Rolex, heck I don't even see the point of wearing a watch. There are clocks everywhere and my phone can tell me the time too.

Rolex Watches like Bmw's are just a fashion statement.

No one wears a Rolex to look at the time, just like no one drives a Bmw only for the enthusiastic purpose of driving it.

So true. But a Rolex simply isn't one of those things in my wishlist. Besides, I'm kinda worried about ladies sh*tting their pants all around me. Nasty.

This boy gets it. They see Rolex, they think "oooh, he's rich and important".

DSXMachina BJ, I'm curious about two things.

Here we go. This is gonna be good.

First, why you've listed your car as simply an M328i under "Mein Auto"? Would you not agree that an M needs a proper title and that title is ///? I look forward to your correction; ///M328i! I hope to own an ///M one day and I hate to see it's cache diluted by careless handling.


If I add the appropriate forward slash-forward slash-forward slash it would outdistance the allocated space for the imprimatur and thus leave a widow on a subsequent second line. Very unattractive.

Second, why did you go for the ///M328i? You've so eloquently pointed out in the past that Mr and Mrs C don't see anything after the Roundel. Mission accomplished. The ///M then returns little value for the money.

An E9X without the M-Sport Package looks feminine, dainty, dated, and ugly. I did not buy it for the status; I bought it so I could avoid getting physically ill by being seen in it.

Or is it about the kids who do see past the Roundel to the ///M badging, linger admiringly and think "I want to be like him one day!" as you do donuts out of the McDonalds parking lot?

My son thinks I drive an M3, tells all his friends. It's a very pleasant unintended consequence.

BJ
