My Ride: C6 Vette & M3
From 330 to Vette to ///M

So about two months back I purchased one of my dream cars that I've wanted since a child. A Corvette! It's an 09 C6 LS3 and a 6 speed manual

Fast forward to Monday November 19th my father sold his 02 325i due to high mileage. So I assisted him in looking for an e90 328i. Then I came face to face with one of the cleanest looking M3's I had ever laid eyes on! It was an 06 M3 with an SMG tranny. While many of you will say SMG sucks look at it from my perspective, I already owned a 330ci auto, bought a 6speed vette(z51 package) for the weekend, so figured it was only rite to get an SMG since it would be my daily (gave the 330ci to my father)

So comparing the vette to the M. Yes the vette will smoke it in any type of straight line. No the M3 won't spank it around corners. But the M3 just has a certain feel that can't be explained! And if you plan to daily it then yes the M3 is better

Now, time for pics! (Cellphone pics)

Nice stable!

So your first car was the 330... then you moved up to a C6 Vette and an M3? I take it you are NOT a teenager.

I did make a drastic jump in vehicles. But I am in fact only 20.

It is molded cement all around the house. It's quite expensive but definitely looks good when no house nearby has it

So you're 20 and you have a Corvette AND M3 as a "DD"? What are you "DD"ing? to college? Then drive the Vette on weekends? ohhh boy

no hate here just smh at the waste of money you'll soon come to recognize as the real world bites you in the ass. That's assuming YOU bought these cars anyways

No worries I get that a lot lol. I now daily drive the M since I just got it. I work with my father(owns a transporting business) I've done dispatch for three years now and bought a small house.(went half and half with parents to buy it cash) I rent it out for 1100 a month and use that money towards vacation and any bills.(car payments)

And save the rest of my money for college and anything else that life unexpectedly throws my way.
