97 and below Honda accord body style, the 5 series trunk opens up right above the taillights, the Hofmeister kink is way too small and a bit too low in that car, the rear window in that blue car 'wraps' a little bit on the side whereas the 5 series' aligns itself with the 'rain channels' from the roof and last but never least the gas tank is on the wrong side :biggrin:

I have learned not to even talk to people at work who know nothing about cars. A VERY few people I work with have any car knowledge. Just look away and say nothing.

Many people I work with say "My car is to get from point A-B"
Then tell me how cars are a bad investment and loose money.

These are hicks who spend all their money on boats, fishing equipement, worms, etc. To each his/her own.

If I run into someone who doesn't like my 135i, I will not defend my choice to them. No matter what I say, they will not understand. Either you get it or you don't.

Worms are a bad investment?

Perhaps to some, any non-American car is rice, but I've seen some pretty ugly modded mustangs and corvettes in my day, so I don't really agree.
They are out there. here are a few pix

Before you all bash the Mustang concept, if you spend the same dollars on a Mustang that you do on a 128i, the Mustang will out perform the 128i in every way. You wouldn't be looking at the base Mustang, you would be looking at the Gt for the same price.

to see a BMW as a ricer, you need to do all the stuff by yours and no expectations should be made from BMW. they wont help in that. they dont deal with it actually
