Garage List
Haha, nice some long lists of cars in here.

My first BMW was actually my 2nd car, so my pre-BMW list is short .. Although I've had a few MB's since then I am now on my 4th BMW and she's a keeper - 5th if you count motorcycles - and still love them just as much!

1994 Toyota 4Runner
1993 BMW 325i (MT) - instant hooked on BMW!

Actually sold the 4Runner for the same price as it took to buy the Beemer, too!

1990 VW Citi Golf 1.3
2002 VW Citi Golf 1.4i
2005 VW Polo 1.9TDi Sportline

After 15 years of being a VW stalwart I was about to continue the tradition and purchase a GTI late last year. Luckily my wife convinced me to test a few different manufacturers, the first of which was BMW. One test drive and I placed my order
