Picked up my first 17' M3 ZCP at 31 years old, Exactly 1 month before turning 32. The plan was to get it during my birthday month but I guess I couldn't resist lol.

I was 16 when I bought my 1989 M3 in 1999.

Still have the car, undergoing total restoration as we speak

I purchased my first M car ('16 M4) last week at age 25! First ever BMW, too. Loving every second.

I'm 32 and recently got my first M, '17 ZCP M3 6mt. I've wanted an M3 since high school and I'm glad I waited until now. Best decision I ever made.

Most people I know are getting married and having kids. I went the opposite way.

Man I am in the same boat but have not pulled trigger yet. My sensible side says don't spend $60k on a car but then again I have friends paying 2-3K a MONTH for au paire's or nanny's!! Now that sucks

Looking to gather some insight across the forum on the age range everyone purchased their first M3. Was it too early/late? If you bought one early on in life, if you had the chance to do it again, would you have waited? Thanks in advance you beautiful people.
I bought my 1st //M3 when i was 18 in 1990. 10 later i still have no regrets. Get one!

For what's worth, in 2016, two babies came into my life. First, my 2016 M3 in April. Then my first child, a baby daughter, in October.

I love my M3 just as much as anyone else here, but I would give it up in heartbeat if I needed the money for my daughter. Cars are just cars, can't compare them the love you'll have for your child.

Completely agree. If I'm lucky enough to have a baby AND an M3 then great. If not, I would have no problem getting rid of the M3.

The good news is that I tested it out with my 2 year old niece and a baby seat in the back and she had a great time sticking her legs through the sport seat openings. It's a kid friendly family sedan.

I'd be curious to know if anyone that bought an M when they were <25 YO lived with their parents at the time and had no other financial obligations.

First M was an E60 M5 at 18. I modded it like no tomorrow and had a blast with it throughout college. Still miss that S85 sound! Sacrificed a lot to be able to swing it, but it was so worth it. Sold it some months back for a Black Series AMG.

Man, I wish I was in the position to buy an M before turning 20. I could barely afford a pair of Eddie Bauer Outlet pants at that age.

Also curious and whether "bought" actually means "given"

Haha the very same for me. A lot of my friends are on their second child now. I'm still happily single and turning 30 this year. The new '18 F80 can be my child
