i was wondering how high BMW maintainence costs are, and how to convince my parents that a BMW will not be that expensive to maintain. My dad seems to think that some POS japenese car would be better (seeing how they are more reliable) but i want my BIMMER damnit!

btw, they both own volvos, not the cheapest cars to maintain

how can i convince them? Also, what do u guys think of a WRX or a VW GTI VR6 seeing as those are teh alternatives. WRX is prob. a little pricey so it would probabily be a VR6 GTi if not a bimmer. While a VR6 would be fun, as i said before I WANT MY BMW!!!!!

btw, the BMW costs 6500 and the GTi costs 14000. they still think i should get the VW

i drive a 95 328i (euro) and i have just had my inspection 2 service which is the BIGGY!, over here in th UK it only cost me 230. if the car is over four years old it fall into the "PLUS FOUR" scheme which basically means everything is cheaper.....

parts arent always that exspensive..... and there are plenty of good quality aftermarket supliers out there.
mind if looked after they very rarely go wrong.

if you want a stylish, reliable, well put together sports car, then you carnt go wrong with a BMW.

well thanks guys.....

it looks like my parents are HELL BENT on me not haveing a BMW of any kind, not even a freking 318

sad for me, i g2g cry now

after i am done crying, i'll begin my search for a GTi. One day, which will be in the nxt few years, if BMW gets back their sense of style perhaps i will purchase one, but the prospect of me aquiring one in the nxt 3 years is glym. Poor me

if i do indeed get a VR6, i'll stick around teh forum and continue to express my opinions

i g2g cry now....i want my bimmer damnit :angry:

but the GTI is growin on me, and it's still german so whatever. just a car, right?

Spetsnaz Ops,

Tell your parents that you have access to a site that offers OEM replica parts at 30-50% below regular US prices. And if all of the help that you can get from this forum would you be able to service your own Bimmer at a very limited budget.

If your parents stills say NO way - just remember to book mark Nikis Place as we will be carrying VW parts by Q3.

However - BMW is BMW and for most of us here, is it THE car we want.

Best of luck

Ya know sh*t Fruity.. Spetsnaz forget having your parents look at this site right now..maybe in a few weeks when we get some of our old info back, but not now!! j/k..

Me thinks your parents are having a stereotypical thought on this..'my son is not going to be driving a BMW at 16 yrs old!!'
