So we all dream about a car that doesn't yet exist. Either we are single with no kids, or maybe married, but the kids are out of the house.<p>Are these the only times to consider cars like this? I am single, never been married, but know once I do get married, priorities will change and I won't be able to get the M, so I'll get it now so that I'll already have it.<p>If not, I'll have to wait 15+ years until house is well paid and kids college $$$ are saved.

Oh, yeah. Single male. Do you think I could get a new M3,and the new Mini- which I think I want more than the M3- and pay for braces? Not a chance. Life's full of choices and priorities. The scary thing is, as I get older, I wonder if I'm making the right ones.

Unfortunately her family wrote her out of the will shortly after we got married. Thankfully she is also a very intelligent and hard worker and is doing quite well for us. There is no way I could buy the M3 on my university salary. The wife will be footing the bill on this one, she doesn't drive stick and doesn't care. I might be nice and consider the SMG for her but probably not. This all comes from when I let her trade my Land Rover Defender 90 that she had to drive since it wouldn't fit in the city parking lots where I work. She swapped the D90 that actually appreciated in value, for a '99 Land Rover Discovery II with every bell and whistle. I don't even have the key for it and she put more than 40,000 miles in the first year!!!!<br>

I actually got maried in September to my five-year girlfriend. <p>She is a car fan (although not nearly on the scale as I) and she understands my love of cars and BMWs. She's actually a member of the (Audi) Quattro club, and I'm an associate member under her :) She is also an associate member of the BMW Club underneath me.<p>So in short, it is possible to be happily maried and be on the list for the M3. <p>~jedinite<br>bmw.jedinite.com

Married, no kids now, none to come.<p>Wife has slowly learned to share my thing about cars. She didn't think much of the Corrado VR6 (SLC to you Yanks) I wanted to buy back in '93, but once we got it and she hit the gas, she caught on ("this is so fast!!!").<p>Initially she didn't think much of the M3 (didn't like the way it looked in pic's), but when she saw one in person, she changed her mind. Now she wants to know when it'll arrive...

And what would you do for an encore, having "achieved" such a loft status so early in life? No offense; just curious. Peace

<The kids college funds is doing great.<br>The 2000 Suburban handles the big family runs.<br>Current M3 does great as my business car, and holds my golf clubs nicely.<br>Priorities? you betcha, M3 comes first.<br>I just ordered a Valentine One for Xmas too, my Escort's getting old and untrustworthy.<p>

Here's my second post to this question:<p>My girlfriend drives me to the BMW dealer to pick up my new '98 M3 Coupe (this is back in '98) in Estoril Blue. The car is sitting in the delivery room looking Sooo nice. She looks at it and says "it's ugly and that blue is really hideous" Keep in mind that I work pretty hard and had wanted an M3 for a while. I'm not giving up eating, but the payment was $700/month- certainly a sacrifice of sorts- I do not have unlimited resources. On the way home, she "loses me" (the dealer was 2 hours away and remember she's now following me home in her Jeep) because "THE BACK OF MY NEW M3 LOOKS LIKE A HONDA". She "lost" me because she thought the Honda she was following was me. A year later I told her "thanks for ruining that day for me"- which she did. Single? GOD DAMN RIGHT.... at least for now!

Anyway with this delay, atleast 3 girls I've dated have been educated about the M3 and now they're getting one too! Glad I'm ahead of them on the waiting list.<br>
