My best mates dad owned a E30 320i back in the day. I remember first seeing that car and thinking wow what a cool car. A few years later I bought my first BMW which was a 1991 E30 325i mtechnic in black with 45k km. That was an awesome car, loved the body styling, exhaust note and the power it had. A few years later I sold that car with 90k km to a bloke who totaled the car the very next day after I sold it to him.

Mine was a 1981 320i. My first test drive and I was hooked! Manual windows and sunroof, 5-speed stick. Carpeting that looked like it belonged in an office, and vinyl seats, but I didn't care! That car was a blast to drive, even with a non-turbo 4 cylinder. It makes you realize how far the current BMWs have strayed from the soul of the brand.

My first Bimmer was a black 2000 328Ci. I loved that car.

It was a blast to drive! Especially for a young guy! But like the first user posted it too was totaled when someone rear ended me going 50mph+ on the highway! I still miss it!

2007 E90 335i. I had been drooling over a BMW for 10 years if not more. I drove my 335i for 10 years and absolutely loved that car. I miss it and I'm looking to get something to replace it. M2, M3 or M340i. Not sure which.

My first was an E30 318i -84 which I had for a few years in the mid 90s.
The second one was a 320d xDrive F31 2016 so I stayed away from BMW for 20 years or so.

I can't remember the year but late 70's 316 in the ugly booger green that the Germans used. Ran pretty good as a Army hand-me-down car while stationed in Germany in the late 80's. That color though...just awful!!

New forum member, first post here, first BMW!

I have just bought a 2013 320i for my partner. I work in IT and am absolutely LOVING the configurability of this car. It's our first ever euro. My own car is a 2011 Mitsi Evo X, and I've got to say that the level of tech and customization ability in the BMW is far ahead of anything I was expecting, even after driving brand new jap cars.

The car needs maps and radio update to NZ (jap import), so I'm looking for ways to do this. Unfortunately I've just been laid up with a broken patella so getting in and out of cars is off the menu for a couple of weeks. Researching and preparing in the mean time.

I've so far got a bluetooth OBDII connector, and the bimmercode app. Looks like I might need an OBD cable as well? Any other tips for a first time owner?

2015 BMW X3. With the amounts of problems I've had with this car, it's making me second guess getting another one. Really fun to drive though.

1979 320i - Silver, Blue Leatherette, Blaupunkt Radio was inserted vertically (OEM), believe it was a 4 spd stick

Bought used from a friend. Had always lusted over a BMW and next one was more modern with limited revs (sort of defeats the purpose) an '84 325e - by this time, BMW had modernized the interior

My first will be a 2021 X3 M40i that is enroute from Spartenburg.
This will be my first German car and hope I have not made a mistake with respects to reliability or the lack of. I know what I'm getting into regarding the depreciation crash and being gouged for maintenance. It's the reliability crash reputation after warranty that really concerns me. Oh well. I'll probably just extend the warranty and move on. If you want to play you have to pay.

first car / current daily is a F32 430i xDrive that i am in love with. Super happy with how much performance you can get with the entry level car and will use it as an efficient daily and have a different car for the track.

With a stage 2 tune, the entry level cars are over 300 whp and 350 wtq which is crazy output per liter.
