I've gotten the 1M comment a few times.. it always makes me cringe that someone can be so car knowledge retarded.

I honestly can't believe how many people think that a 5 series is faster because a 5 is bigger than 1, when the numbers after it really determine how fast the car is.

I get it frequently as well.

I think the mental track for most is that if someone is a car enthusiast, then they most own the top spec model of the car.
