Non car people

You can read some people a mile off when they ask what car you drive and when you tell them they ask is it petrol or diesel

Why would you want such a high powered fuel drinking thing like that?

Defining an M5, can be fun though.

"its a legendary line of super sedans, built by BMW", is my most commonly used.

I normally quote that idiot Clarkson: "fast cars make you smarter".

I always enjoy explaining to a youngster the full specs of an M5 when they ask how fast it is than someone who is set in their ways driving a cheap to run box which would go in one ear then out the other.
When some others ask what it costs to run an M5 I don't think it's inappropriate to answer if you need to ask then you can't afford it but I'd never say it to my best liked friends.
In fact one has bought an F80 M3 so I half convinced him!

When someone asks me what I drive my response is always to ask them first whether they are interested in cars.

If they say yes, I tell them and they pretty much always respond the same (Wow! Fast car or something along those lines). If they say no, I say it's an M5 which is a very fast BMW.

My wife is not interested in cars and I haven't driven it quickly with her in it. She just thinks it's a blue car - she has no idea. My daughter loves cars and she knows exactly what it is.

My 5yr old has started asking me every time he sees a BMW, "Dad is that an M5?" or " Dad is that quicker than your car?". Love it!

Had an older relative visit us,haven't seen him for a while and saw him looking at the car for about a minute before he came in.After tea he mentioned why I was spending money on exhausts with multiple pipes and bigger brakes as it obviously wasn't standard together with the huge wheels but naturally I played him along.
I gave him a lift back home which is about 15 miles away and when warmed up I gave it a bootful from the lights and he didn't say a word.When we arrived and as he got out he winked and said it's not a fake after all with a wry smile.

I get this all the time and then they can't comprehend why I pay 5 times more on the road tax.

Probably, because I am stupid, lol
