First BMW I bought was an 01 325ic Silver on black cloth/leather, I bought for my wife as a wedding present the day before we got married.

MY first bmw was an 88 e30M3. black on black(cardinal original but long gone) I had a classmate in the early 90’s who’s dad had one, and when I saw it I was in love.

2000 e46 323i Titanium Silver on Black. Got it used in 2002 to replace a 1981 DeLorean I was daily driving in high school. Loved that car. Eventually got another e46 later on.

'87 E30 5-spd MT cabriolet in bronzit over tan leather. technically, it was my wife's car before it was mine...but, i went with her when we were dating to buy it (used in 91) because she didnt know how to drive a manual. i taught her how to drive manual in this car, then we ended up engaged a few months later, and married within the year. a month after we married, we sold the E30 and bought a brand new '92 E36 sedan in laguna green.


*pic isnt our actual car...cant find any good pics of it in any of our old albums :-(

My E90 was my first (and only) car I've ever owned or possessed. Learned how to drive decently early on in my youth. I never had a car given to me growing up, never got my license until I moved out of my parents place when I was in my late teens. 2.5 years ago I needed a car, found the right one online, and had my roommate drive me. Met him at a restaurant right around the corner to celebrate my first car purchase. Love this car and I intend to own it for as long as it'll have me. Others will come and go but I can see this car staying around for a long time, to say the least.

Grew up around tons of BMWs in my family. I actually have a picture of a 4 year old me standing in front of a bright, white 325i coupe parked in my parent's driveway. Long time ago!!

Cool Just purchased my first BMW!!

Just purchased my very first BMW last night.

M240i xDrive. Long Beach Metallic Blue.

They're holding it for about a week to high gloss black the rims, tint the windows, swap the metal kidney grills for black, and do the clear bra. It already had a carbon fiber lip spoiler and side mirror caps. I am SOOOOOOO damn excited to pick her up. Her name is Matilda. 👀 I feel a little too giddy about it, but it's my first "sports" car, and I've been eyeballing this beaut for a while. Cannot wait.

Here's a little story about my first BMW, which was an E30 I bought for about $700

1st BMW: 2002 316i which I sold after 3 months once my 2013 335 arrived. It felt quite 'zippy' due to its size and weight despite 116 HP.

After 4 years working on a Vauxhall nova project, I sacked it all off when I went out in a friend's tuned 330d.
A month later I got myself a 335i and it is by the far the most exciting, relaxing and scariest thing I've ever driven.
Best move I've ever made
