Question A BMW General Question?

Are we obessed, ever since I purchased my e36 about a year ago, I eat, sleep, & breathe BMW! I purchased my e36 for $9,500 & since then I sunk about another $3,500 easily! There must be something going on. I never treated any other car like this, other than the 1972 Chevelle SS I restored from the ground up, 20 years ago!!! Do I stand alone on this insanity!!!

NO WAY!! I just bought my E36 as a daily driver but it has its projects. In less than a month I've ordered $1200 in parts stemming from. Stereo upgrade for Ipod and Bluetooth capabilities and speakers to full suspension repair of mounts with new springs and Bilstein shocks. Also parts for the common cooling system problems. I plan on spending much more too. Ideas to follow as well.

P.S.S. Also want tint for my fish bowl.. LOL. Just replace 4 of 6 windows. Guess that puts me up to about $2000.00 since I bought the car.

i guess what we are is BMW Geeks, misunderstood by non-BMW owners, who "just wanna get from point A to point B". A BMW is something that does so much more. being able to get from point A to point B is just something small that is included with a BMW. Where a BMW excels is far beyond the puny boundaries of point A and B.

maybe thats why people think bmws are so much money... someone buys one falls inlove and all their friends go "yea he spends hundreds of dollars on that car i'd never get a bmw!"

i dont care how much money i put into my car cause i mean what other kinda things to i really need anyway? i'd rather have a nice car that makes me feel good over a new xbox or going out to movies and dinner every day.

people with bmws know the ways thats all it is.

Thanks Johnny

Name is James btw. Very nice car yourself. Everyone likes the styling and everything about the BMW too. All people around the car scene compliment nice cars like them. They never really will fully know the pure enjoyment of the BMW unless they really own one.

I would have to agree with everyone and just when you think you have your car how you want it you find more mods that you want to do
