As far as being a poser.....assuming the car guys have a similar definition as the bike people, I don't think I qualify. I've always owned the most astounding sports cars I could afford (Eagle Talon TSI, Pontiac Trans AM, various V-Dub's) and driven them to the limits of adhesion and accelleration. I did have a hard time going with a BMW simply because of the poser aura that surrounds the brand - I didn't want to be associated with that cultural phenomenon. I was looking at (or, at least for) Audi S4's and TTR's when Autohaus BMW came up with a CPO 335i and a trade offer on my car that was just too sweet to pass up. I'll look into the autocross scene. Hopefully I'll be able to find a date that doesn't conflict with my already busy racing calendar (note the Steve McQueen quote in my tag line ).
By the way, I was just thrilled with how I was treated at Autohous. Everyone there was knowledgable, helpful, friendly and generally easy to work with. My one previous experience at another BMW dealer in another state had me marching out swearing I'd never set foot on another BMW car lot ever again.
