I only reply with the brand.. I drive BMW or Ford.. the reason behind this ?
There were few guys who typically did not understand my straight forward answer.. F80 M3.. So I had to explain them its a BMW twin-turbocharged sedan !

Lame ?

Can't remember the last time someone asked me that. Fewer people are into cars these days and fewer still are into enthusiast models. On a related note, BMW is definitely not the aspirational brand it was 15 years ago.

BMW to non-car people. BMW M3 CS to car people. The next question is usually "what's a CS?"

I answer an M3, no problem with people knowing what I drive.

What makes me laugh is when people ask "2 doors?", I always answer sedan or 4 doors. And the better part is someone that tells me he likes the M3 better than the M4!

"A black BMW." When they see it, they might say, "Nice car" or similar. Some think it's a current model. If they inquire further, a few understnd "M." If they don't know me, some assume I'm a wealthy pr#*k. I may be the latter, but definitely not the former.

The worse response I've ever seen to the M3 answer is, "Why didn't you get the M4? Isn't it faster?"

The only time I ever get asked about my cars is when I am at either a social event or engaged in a conversation with other car enthusiasts.

Are all of you being asked what you drive in normal day to day conversations? If so, that is incredibly weird.

I pulled into the pub for a bottle of rum this afternoon. The bloke in front of me asked what BMW my car was. I said "a 135". He said "it looks like it goes like a scalded cat". I said "yeah, it does" LOL

When you park outside a customer's office - 99% chance of them mentioning it.

I work in a medical/technical field....Most would have no clue. Even more of them would think I'm nuts that I spend my weekend working in my shop/garage on cars or detailing as my de-stress and grew up drag and street racing before family/kids.

I usually say I have a M5, or a BMW M5. The no-clue'ers at least are aware of the BMW name, and the car people pick up on the "M5" part and it sparks a great conversation.
