I bought my first BMW yesterday.
It's a 2002 325xiT. It's the perfect blend of sportiness, practicality (Canadian winters!) and luxury. Been driving VWs since '78. (Super Beetle, Rabbit, Jetta II and Jetta III) I've wanted a BMW ever since I saw Jack Lemmon drive one in The China Syndrome.
I have nothing to add to this forum yet. I'll be looking around for a while before I make any posts. There seems to be a lot of useful information here.
Talk to you later.
