Smile Image is everything...

To all members, when you first chose and bought YOUR BMW, what statement are you telling everyone -- (more like "What Your Car Says About You") --?

"I'm rich bitch"




I could care less what others thought/think about my car or me, I bought my car for ME, not to make a statement.

I spent $12K less for my 335i Sedan (with 6MT and ZSP) than my neighbor's S4.

To those that look for a substance it is everything. Sadly to those that look for an image it is everything as well.

Good news is that with BMW you nail both

no argument there, at first, image is EVERYTHING, but eventually it crumbles if you have nothing to back up the image. Look at the subprime debacle; all those people buying houses they couldn't afford.

Then again, for the vain, they don't look at the long term, only the short term, so for that "image is everything' works.

I leased my car because it was the best bang for the buck in it's class- I was contemplating an S5 but, the 335i was a cheaper lease and has virtually the same performance- plus I've never owned a new BMW and I've always loved Bimmers. I think my car has the best balance of performace and elegance for the price hands down.
