Just a quick note to introduce myself, found out about this place in the Roundel, and it looks like a good place to learn a thing or two. I've been into Bimmers a while, starting in the late `60's rallying/auto-Xing a friend's 1600. Bought my first one in `81 (320i), moving onto an `87 325is, then a `92 318i for Mrs. Valkirie, a `96 328is, and then the `97 528i to replace the 318 (Mrs Valkirie likes wheeled toys, too).

I'm partial to the agility and responsiveness of 3 series (but it got hard to asks your adult friends to squeeze into the back seat of a 3er, not that the 5 is a hardship :D ). The real problem to me is that I'm always half seduced by BWM's latest & greatest, but I'm just so happy with my current 3, I don't want to give her up. Tough choices, eh?

At any rate, I'm looking forward to getting to know some of you all, learn more about der Bimmer, and hopefully contribute some to the knowledge base, too. :thumbup:

Welcome to Bimmerfest.

If you are planning on getting a new bimmer, test drive the new 5 if you feel the 3 doesn't quite have enough space. I think you'll be surprised at how nimble the new 5 feels, especially with the sport package (active steering). It will feel like your e39 528i vs the e39 540i in terms of 'lightness' and agility.
