Which one are you ?

If you can heel and toe you are probably the latter. If you cant, most likely the former.
I can heel and toe. So what now?

My M experience is different to you that's why it's called experience. It is not measurable quantitatively.

Some people here have a 1 dimensional conception of what car enthusiast is about.

It just amazed me how close minded some people are.

Do I care? Not one bit. Everyday I drive my car and have my M experience I am getting my money's worth.

Did I attack people in the forum? I don't think so. May be I am putting out a different view. Some people can't control themselves to jump the gun is their character issue.

Then a track enthusiast is 10x the car enthusiast based on your definition.

To claim you're more of an enthusiast based on your choice of weapon for your commute is laughable. Anyone can spend all day on forums, read Car and Driver and spend few more bucks than the next guy but that doesn't make you an enthusiast. Instead it makes you an insecure elitist wannabe.

Yes a car is an asset because you can sell it and get some money back. It is not a good asset because it depreciates.
lmfao ya back brudda, how ya been? Ya been tearn up the tarmac, feeling the M da pure driving pleasure

I can understand your confused, but can you clarify which decision is going to lose the most

Sorry I thought an asset was something that provides a future benefit and unless you count a loss as a benefit (hey you arent a merchant banker by chance???) then it aint

Lookup 1 Series or BMW Enthusiast and you'll see a pic of Sparoz.

Who else spends serious cash in all the right areas, tracks their car and organises AND partially funds an Advanced BMW Driver Training Day 2500km away from his home? No one, just sayin!

When did I say that? I am saying that's how BMW market their product.

Jumping the gun again. Some people want to spend more money than others (not me BTW) but doesn't mean they are an insecure elitist wannabe.

You seems to be more insecure about people liking and can spend the money.

Anything that has a 2nd hand market value is an asset, whether you like that definition or not.

Or maybe you're just in denial while the 100 other people here have it right
