Garage List
I've been very fortunate to have some nice cars, some of which were paid for by my parents because they upgraded their cars or my brothers got their licenses, etc.

In order:
-1992 Honda Accord sedan (this thing was quite fun, rode low to the ground and was back when Hondas weren't as boring as they are today)
-1999 Nissan Altima
-2005 Nissan Altima
-2008 Volkswagen GTI
-2009 Subaru WRX (had a catback exhaust on this, sounded so good, especially in tunnels and it was reaaaaal fast)
-2010 Volkswagen GTI (I just missed having that "German" feel to a car)
-2012 Volkswagen CC
-2009 BMW 328i xDrive (current car)

I've driven and test driven plenty of cars. The Nissan 350Z and 370Z were my "humble" dream cars since the 350Z came back as a 2003 model. I've driven the 350Z on a few occasions and the 370Z as well (goodness it was quick!), but the balance and handling of the 3-series really doesn't have me feeling like I missed out on the Z at all even though it's noticeably slower in a straight line.

I will admit though, the F30 has me concerned about the fun factor of the 3-series. Fortunately, I won't be in the market to replace my car for a while. My fiancee on the other hand, will probably be ready for a new car by around next summer and I really want to get her in to a BMW, so we'll see! I'm hoping BMW will have done some kind of mid-cycle refresh or something by then to at least deal with the steering feel. That's the one thing that bothers me the most about the F30.

Mercedes.

And believe me, I have seen the light and am "hooked" on BMW's. Mercedes especially with their horrid and confused new designs seem irrelevant in my book. I guess BMW was always my language and I stopped acknowledging it due to the E65/E60 generation turning me off so heavily from the brand (which is what M-B's new designs are doing to me). The F01 spawned the language that lead into the F10 which brought back the roots of BMW design, a luxury and refinement superior to my E-Classes, and of course what I consider to be the bonafide BMW sporty/dynamic bloodline still intact under that cushy and cozy chassis which was over-engineered for this segment in order to work under cars much more expensive (F01 and RR Ghost, etc.).

2000 Chevy Silverado. My first vehicle. Absolutely loved it but obviously a totally different driving experience from the BMW.

I had a 2003 mustang that I really loved but I love my 5 series more.

Especially after the accident I was just in, stupid girl rear ended me on the highway and it did more damage to her car than mine. If I had been in the mustang it literally would have smashed in the entire rear end.

We used to be a bimmer family. Mom had an X5 and dad had an E46 330. I've only owned two cars. My first car was an Audi A4 B6 1.8TQ which I modded for a while. Had it for 5 years. Now the E90 335xi I'll probably have for a while as well.
