I have gotten that a few times. Its funny when strangers do it. A lot of people do buy into the 'asshole BMW owner stereotype' and it is sort of condescending how some people have approached me. I love e90's and still would love a e90 or e91 328i for a DD but at the time I wanted a smaller and lighter car and the 135i fit that perfectly.
