Hello!

This afternoon (friday 4/23) I finalized a purchase on my first ever BMW. I went the used route, and got a 1999 323is, with a little over 60K miles on it. It looks and drives like new, and I am pretty excited about it.

I just thought I'd say hello, and look forward to spending some time in here!

...it looks good on you, though!

I've wanted one for years...I think part of the reason I didn't get one before is that I though I might be putting on airs, so to speak. After driving the car...I am kicking myself for not doing it sooner.

I have a feeling I'll go this route for the rest of my car buying life...let somebody else eat the depreciation on a car, and get myself something nicely broken in for half the cost!

Anyway...Its 9:30, and I've already found excuses to run errands this morning!

...it looks good on you, though!

I know the feeling. If I'm meeting someone, and they ask me what car to look for, I'm very hesitant about saying a BMW. So many negative connotations are associated with Bimmer drivers. Bottom line, you gotta do for you, not everyone else. Aren't you glad you did?

I've owned cars from all over the world, and am convinced that Germans churn out the best means of transportation....I'm hooked.

As for finding an excuse to leave the house, that won't stop. That's the beauty of these cars, eventhough the newness of ownership wears off, the driving excitement never does!

to the forums, and to the community.
