In my case it started with my Grandfather in Germany, who had more than 25 BMWs in a row including the first V8 (he sure regretted not holding on to it) and first 520i (injection!). I remember driving with him to the Swiss Alps to go skiing.

As soon as he retired, he switched to Mercedes and Automatic....

Love the wagon! I just don't think I can get one for a DD

I just used Racestart for the first time and I don't think many cars will be beating me in stoplight battles. Infact, unless its a GTR or 911 turbo, I have no fear. and wait until the tune.......

Psh, My dad has a F16. He challenged personal jets when he was bored, and challenge Stradales when he wanted to laugh.

Dad kept an F18 in the hold of one of his private A380's.

That is an awesome wagon for sure! Dang....must have cost a good bit too!


Oh, and I'm the only car guy in my family. Nobody else understands it...not even my dad. They all just think of it as an appliance...

Not a bad wagon for a soon to be grandpa.

My dad was never into cars. However, I am already bringing my 1.5 yr old daughter to cars and coffees.

Neither was mine! When I put my ESS exhaust on my car, he came to me and said, why did you make your car louder?
