True Story.....

A woman at work, who is the company "don't tell her anything because she will tell everyone" asked me in front of 5 other women, "How can you afford that car?"
I responded, because I don't have to pay alimony or child support like you ex-husband.
All of the other 5 woman left laughing.....

So I guess owning a BMW makes me Honest....

Guess what, you still don't own a BMW. You're just renting it for the length of your lease. But they are wonderful cars though.

people that have a lien on their title really don't own the vehicle either, the bank owns it. So really unless you paid cash or paid off the loan if full you don't really own it either.

A guy in an Australian video reviewing the 335 described it as "the ultimate compensating machine".

Power is nothing without control.

Image is nothing without some underlying and practical worth to you.

I didn't buy this car for image. I bought it because I will only buy sporty AWD cars, and I've grown out of Subaru, and I hate VW/Audi.

I drove the Lexus IS and the Infiniti G, and I thought it wasn't even a comparison.

Plus, i've loved BMWs for a long time.

I bought it because it is gorgeous and very fast. Great daily driver. Own a 911 too. I don't care who sees me - these cars are for MY enjoyment only, like art hanging in ones house.

When they said twin turbo in a BMW I was sold it could have been a seven series and I would have been in . If there was one auto maker who could do twin turbo's right it would be BMW(and the skyline cost about 80geezs!)
