Never knew a BMW until I saw one in Tomorrow Never Dies (James Bond movie). That's when the spark of interest got lit up. The confirmation came from BMW M3 (E46)
a true beauty! E46 4 Life for me
The looks was first of the car, the status is next and well the interior and engineering of the car was secondary to the looks. Status is last but yet still important.
I know I got a 3-Series and not an M3 but I got my eyes on a BMW 325i next and then a BMW M3 CSL for which i'll ensure I have a garage because that'll be my most prestigous car which I cannot allow to get dirty, etc
