Obsessed with my Car
I am a new BMW owner. It's been a 20 year dream. So now that the dream has come true, is it okay to think about my car every day, several times a day... and at night I'm reading about others' BMWs. I never did this with my other cars.
Oh yeah, and then there's the driving. I want to work on my car, but I'm always driving it. Is this normal?
Very normal! :clap Welcome to the forums :wave
Its a very serious affliction called BMW ownership :) enjoy it.
It seems to be normal with most of us....lol
Obsessed? My desktop picture is my own car. The background pic on my cellphone is my car. I stare out the window 30x a day at my car. I park all the way out at the end of the lot so no one dings my doors. Many of my passwords is hofmeister. I'm on BMW sites and retailers more than I check my email.
Is that you yet?
Welcome, I think that fits most of us, they are the Ultimate Driving Machine.
My wife gives me a hard time because she thinks i like my car more than her! (not true)
im addicted as well !
I see I've come to the right place. Thanks for the warm welcome. From the looks of your cars, I'm in good company. My name is Kirk, and I'm a BMW addict.
which describes you.......?
If you know more about your Bimmer than your service writer does.
Checking your e-mail as soon as you get home for Bimmer related stuff.
Parking in furthermost extremes of all parking lots.
Your local speed shop knows you on first name basis.
Spend more time cleaning your car than your house.
You know what "TSB" means.
You can't function on the job because your spouse took your Bimmer to work today.
You won't vacuum the house once a month but you sweep the garage once a week.
Your dealer calls you when he has good deals on Bimmer parts.
Your dealer calls you with Bimmer questions.
You follow perfect strangers off the freeway to give them Bimmer club applications, never dreaming that you are scaring the @#%$ out of them.
You pick out all of the "wrong parts" on the Bimmer toy at Wal-Mart.
You would rather drive across the country, even though it is twice as cheap to fly.
You say, "look! there goes an E46" and you can't understand why nobody else knows what you're talking about.
Normally, you give your wife static for sending you to the grocery store but today you volunteer because you just found out that a picture of your car is in the latest issue of Bimmer Magazine.
You spend 15 minutes driving around a crowded parking lot hoping to find that perfect spot, even though the movie has already started.
The first waking thought you have at 6 A.M. EVERY Saturday morning is to get up and go wash your Bimmer.
The only thing you use your computer for anymore is to check for new Bimmer stuff.
You are looking forward to the warranty expiring so you can do some of the better mods you've read about on the forums.
You take heart knowing that those bugs paid the ultimate price for messing up the front of your Bimmer.
You request a parking lot view of your car instead of an ocean front so you can watch the guys gawk at your car instead of gawking at the babes on the beach!!!
You wake up in the middle of the night, slink over to the window, part the curtains, and gaze at your car for a minute or so, at least twice per night.
You cannot stop smirking.
You can hardly conceal that insane grin as people gawk at your car, but you try your best to look indifferent, even bored.
You keep grumbling "sorry" to your wimpy passengers for snapping their necks back and forth.
You dont eat lunch at work because if you save the $6.00 every day in 5 months you can buy the turbo upgrade!!
Everytime you pass by the garage door you open it just to look.
You wipe down your Bimmer after each use.
You have mats on top of the factory floor mats.
You park your car on some type of mat on the garage floor.
You budget more for Bimmer parts than say, family vacations.
You send your oil out for contaminant testing, just like the Space Shuttle.
You have more pictures of your car than you do of your girlfriend.
You discover your spouse has a much broader vocabulary above 120 mph.
Your fiancee walks in naked with that sparkle-in-their-eye, but you need "just one more minute" to finish reading the latest Bimmer digest.
You have enough spare parts to build another Bimmer
You have Bimmer parts in your cubicle at work.
Your Christmas list begins with: brake upgrades.
After your answer to "How was your weekend?" the next question is always: "And you do this for fun?”
A neighbor asks if you have any oil, to which you query, "Synthetic or organic?" to which they reply, "Vegetable"
You refer to the corner down the street from your house as "Turn One."
You look at the fire hydrant at that corner and see an apex marker.
You save broken car parts as "momentos".
(ripped from my 'other' car site but just as nice here)
heh. im at the same level as dudesky.
I also have a pet peeve that involves always inserting my BMW key with the emblem facing me.
its funny..no one understands until they have one...then its all up hill(well downhill for some i guess) from there
wow some of you guys have OCD when it comes to bmw's. Welcome kirk :)
