Only comment I've received about my car was before I took delivery. I was at a gas station filling up a 335d my dealership gave me as a loaner (because there was a delay in delivery on my 135i) and the guy in front of me was filling up his 350Z. I've always like Z cars so I complimented him. The conversation went something like this:

Me: Nice Z. I used to have a 280ZX and really liked it but the new Zs are a whole different animal.

Z owner: Thanks, but what you're driving is a truly great car.

Me: Oh, it's not mine, it's a loaner because there's been a delay in delivering the car I ordered.

Z owner: Oh? What did you get?

Me: A 135i.

Z owner (eyes going wide looking VERY impressed and really surprised): Reaallly?? How'd you do that?!

Me: Just walked into the dealership and ordered one.

Z owner: Wow.

I've only had the car for a few months now and don't drive it very much so haven't had a lot of opportunity to get comments, but I have caught a few envious stares.
