I first drove a Bimmer in 1981. Drove a 528I and decided one day I would own one. Wasn't till 1989 I bought my first Bimmer the 528I. Don't know why I did it, I was unemployed and had just enough money to buy one I found in the paper. Guess I did it to help motivate me to get a new job. Since then I've only owned Bimmers
The first car you ever owned. Was it a Bimmer? Was it your favorite of all you have had since? Do you have great memories of it, compared to the current experiences in our Bimmers?
Me, It was a '76 Mercury Cougar XR7, loaded, got it when I was 19 in '78. It was a beautiful cruiser. I could haul-ass for hours on it's 26 gal tank, with four friends to boot! My current '95 525ia is a fantastic machine. Other than someone else paying for it, I really can't think of any other car I would like right now. As far as memories, I've only had this(my first)BMW for 6 months. But so far, so good!
