I absolutely agree with everything in your response! Well said!
We need more enthusiasts like her about cars!

well said sir, i thought it was a cool video and a true passion for something that is easily noticeable. the way she talked about the car was pretty obvious, she has lots of love and respect for that car. I remember when i was a freshman in high school and my teacher parked her M3 in the parking lot near the classroom (the teacher was stupid hot too)...i drooled over that car every freakin day i walked by it. I made it a point to purchase a BMW at some point in my life, a e92/e90/f25/and 2 e46 M3s later...and Im still hooked.

I'm taken back by how much of her identity is found in the car. I'd hate to see what she would do it if it were wrecked or stolen :/

However she's peaked my interest, and ill be looking into a m535i!

Great vid! Thank you for sharing! A really cool E28 with European bumpers. The US version is ugly. And the German old license plate from the Palatine town of "Worms". The E28 is an underestimated car. I like the M5 MK1 with 286hp. My father owned a nice silver 1985 E28 525i. It was the car I fall in love with BMW. Smooth 6cyl engine.

I know how she feels! I still have my E28 sitting in the garage after buying my 135i. My 528e has never let me down and has 265k miles on the clock w/o an engine rebuild. It's the car that introduced me to BMW and I have been a fan ever since. I can't bring myself to sell it.
