Just to get some conversation going...
Why did you all choose BMW over any other car/make/model?
If you are a repeat owner... what about the BMW made you come back?

Current Vehicles:
2005 Porsche 997 Carrera
2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Edition
2001 Dodge Stratus with 3000 watts of sound.
1988 E30 BMW 325 (supercharger in progress)

Coming Soon:
Sport Bike, suggestions are welcome!

I love the styling of the E36. In my opinion it is one of the best looking cars 4dr or coupe out there. I love the balance of the cars and the driving feel. To me they are the best all around 4dr or 2dr car. There are cars that are better in one field or another. But to me, BMW has got the best all around package and styling. Other cars I was looking at was a mid to late 90's Subarau Imprezza Sport Wagon or Sedan, another 5th Gen celica 90-93 (my first car was a 92 GT).

The E36 styling will remain a classic for a long long time.

I prefer the look of a 328i Sport to the new BMW 3 shape.

When i was younger my uncle had a 320i coupe, he bought it brand new (1994) and it was the best car id ever been in, the engines sound great, their comfortable, and now i drive one i know they are a pleasure to drive too!

Put simply, some cars might beat them on certain fields, but overall a BMW is one of the best cars on the road.

Its funny you ask, for me, its that you really do get a lot for the money you pay for the car, even if its 500$, you'd be suprised how durable the cars are, and how well the suspension and engines do.

People always say "BMW's cost too much to maintain", honestly, i dont find it much different then most cars, maybe "yeah for some parts", but once you fix it, you really will never need to again unless something uncontrollable(weather, theif, weapons) were to interfere, otherwise, the BMW's for the most part have been most reliable i believe.

I get them because i know that they drive awesome, brake awesome, handle awesome, and look AWESOME.

you all have to admit, then seeing a BMW around, you can get a lil antsy to go and see who's driving, especially and older or more classic car makes you think "now, they wouldnt have that car unless they knew something about it ".

Plus i think you'll find that the BMW community is bigger then most others, even combined Japanese communities, BMW i think has a rep for being so huge, especially when it comes to Drives and Meets, and cars at track events.

I hate: people who haven't died yet that I hate.

when i was like 4 and a half i lived with my uncle in kefeld, Germany

he had an e30 m3, he took me on the autobahn in it, and even though i was really scared at first after a while i loved it, he had another e30 too i think it was a 325is, but anywas after he took me on the autobahn in that car i was hooked on bmw's i dreamed of having my own one day and i tried to get all the bmw toys i could, the biggest disappointment in my life was that there weren't more bmw hot wheels lol, so yeah that's how it all started with me, and since then i've learned everything i could about bmw and now i choose bmw, not just for sheer driving pleasure, but for style, practicality, and respect

I got my BMW out of no where.. I got a call from a relative saying there was this bmw for sale and he just wants to get rid of it because he is getting a new one. So i acted fast and the next day i went to the bank got the check and drove away in my car. Even though I didnt have a job at the time, it was the best move I have ever done. Big jump from my beat up chevy corsica. Been in love ever since.

Because I love cars. Been a car freak all my life. I've had cars from all over the world, and come to the conclusion, that the German's and Italian's love cars as much as I do. I'm currently stuck enjoying the German's prowess for engineering, but I'm sure I will dive into Italian cars after I've owned my last German car (1988 930) for a while.

Porsche ranks #1 IMHO (easily the best of the cars I've owned) but BMW certainly comes in a close 2nd. THese cars offer a driving experience like few others, and as it's something most must do everyday, why not make it satisfying.

i used to have a toyota 4-runner, love it, crashed it, totaled it. wanted a bm, because, well it's a bm. love the style, the presteige and the status. but now...understand it as a beautifully crafted machine that is the ultimate driving machine.

refuse to drive my friends cars (unless they are under the influence of intoxicants)...even new ones, like my friends mazda 6

integraoligist is an unknown quantity at this point
I actually only have a '97 Acura Integra GSR right now, love it because it's a "tuner" car, can find anything for it anywhere... plus there are forums with massive amount of info on them. with 50k members on 2 of the forums.


i've been looking into getting a BMW for a while now... but i've been trying to find places to get parts from (i.e. how easy and widespread parts are) but havent really come up with a whole lot. Also, i've only been able to find a few forums with a decent amount of members... i.e. this perticular forum.
So, can you all help me out and give me some sites that have parts... and other forums? (i'm not bad mouthing this forum by any means, so dont get me wrong... i've already learned a few things here)

Thanks all!
