Thumbs up

I am conducting some market research about BMW M series owners to see how these owners impact BMW. My MBA program will submit these results to BMW marketing. I have a few questions that I would like to put out to the discussion forum to see what your opinions are:

1) What year/make/model of car do you currently own?
2) If someone were to ask you about your BMW or M what would you tell them?
3) Why did you decide to buy your current car and what were the primary factors that influenced you to make that purchase?
4) How many of your past vehicles have been BMW or M?
5) Do you anticipate buying a BMW or M as your next automobile purchase? And Why?
6) Do you consider yourself a BMW or M enthusiast? If yes why would you say that?
7) What is your opinion of the pricing on Ms?
8) What is your opinion of the direction BMW is taking with its product line and the Ms?

1. 1994 BMW 325is
2. It's a great car for the canyons.
3. Very moddable, lots of aftermarket support, good handling, good build quality, stellar motor, fairly reasonable to maintain, tons of fun.
4. Not a single one
5. Possibly, I definitely will always be an E36 fan. I also love the E30 M3.
6. Yes, in a way. I don't think I'm exclusively a BMW fan, but I do enjoy any car with a good motorsport heritage behind it.
7. Too expensive for the level of performance. Used cars are a much better way to get into an M. Maintenaince is pricey if you go to a shop but luckily E36s are fairly simple to work on yourself.
8. I like the performance but the looks leave something to be desired. M cars still look nice, but I don't like the SMG only M5. All good performance cars need a manual clutch as an option.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

1) 1993 BMW 325i
2) The handleing is amazing
3) I purchased it for a good price and the reputation
4) None, First Car
5) Yes, because i am very satisfied with this one
6) Yes, becuase i am always working on my car, and talking on the forums
7) I think the pricing is right. They are better than most of the cars in the same price range, and if they were any cheaper, everyone would have them.
8) I like the new look, and i love the new v10 that is going to be in the M5 and M6

Is this for "M" owners, the parameters of your statement of intent and questions seem inclusive of BMW owners and M drivers, is this what you are after?

1) 1995 bmw 325i
2) perfect mix between sport and luxury
3) bought it because i liked all my previous bmws, and the price was right.
4) i have owned 1 other one my dad owns an m3 and my mom a 328ci
5) My next car will be an e36 m3. I have owned a few other e36 and the m3 is a great car.
6) Of course, any time you spend atleast 4 hours a day on a bmw-forum you are hardcore
7) I wish they were cheaper, but you have to pay for how great they are.
8) i prefer the e36 way more than the e46. The only e46 i like is the m3

1) 1995 318i E36 Sedan
2) Moving fast thru traffic
3) Style, Handling, Quality
4) none...unless you count my dad's 1998 525i E39 sedan
5) yes, my current experience driving my E36 has been too good for my next car to not be a BMW.
6) I'm not a M enthusiast....But I just like BMW for style, quality, and handling not speed or senseless mods
7) expensive but worth it...those cars are legends.
8) (Best Question here) BMW will always evolve and I'm pleased that the direction has been towards engine effeciency, comfort and style and not bells and whistles stuff thet american car makers use to sell their car. I think in terms of the M line; they may be too many cars...M1, M3, M5 and now the M6!!! I mean how big is the customer base for these cars? BMW should stick with quality and not move into the quantity fad that is all the rage in the car market today...I was shock with the X3 SAV....because the X5 was already a great all around SAV. The X3 is superflous and BMWs attempt to copy other companies that have a multi-tude of SUVs aimed at everyone in the consumer end of the car market...Again BMW should focus on what they've been doing great for the last century...Quality not Quantity!

I like your survey. It was fun!

I was just curious as to why a seventeen year old would need two cars.

It doesn't seem practical.
