Unless you guys want to keep copy and pasting off of wikipedia, I'd suggest two great books:

BMW: Driven to Succeed (Graham Robson)
BMW Motorcycles (Holmstrom and Nelson)

Both have a very detailed history of the automobile and motorcycle history, respectively.

Lets make this a thread of what you think BMW means.
For instance,


Break My Window - to steal my radio
Bent My Wheel - As we all know the rims are like tin foil and bend like nothing


I have another one but its sorta derogatory so im not gona say it.
B.... Mans Wheels

oh you know it! haha actually its just a mandatory part of the first level parts advisor certification training, along with about a dozen other classes which none of the other guys have ever taken. as for the family shield i believe that only influenced the colors.

family shield????? big, BIG WTF?
Do you think all Bavarians are one family or what?
Sorry, but... okay, I'm cooling down

blue and white (rhombs) are the flag of Bavaria


and the blue and white are like the moving propeller
but I'll look it up in my big BMW book, allright?

I want to cordially apologize to everyone in this thread for having cursed in the open forum earlier in the week. It was very unprofessional of me and for some reason, I thought this was in the comedy section because I was laughing so hard at all of the mottos. Sorry, I apologize and will continue to try and improve as a human being.
