Yeah, I need to be doing this like I need another hole in my head...

Hello to all and thanks for such a great forum.

Here's the deal. Got my first (and last) 320i in 1980. I loved that car like no other until an unfortunate weather incident forced us to part much sooner than I'd ever hoped. Long story short, the requirements of career and family life kept me from owning another BMW for many years. Yes, there were SUV's, Saabs, Volvos and others, until a few years ago until a nice 3 series convertable came into my life. Alas, it was not meant to be as more children and too little garage space forced us to part.

Until last Friday. I couldn't stand it anymore and picked up a very clean, low mileage E39 525i. I made the conscious decision not to get the only 540, and there were not good 530s when the fever hit, so I went with the 525.

So, I'm pretty sure I'll be spending way more time around here than I should, and I know I'll probably be dropping a lot more money into this car than I should, but I"M TOTALLY STOKED!!!

I can't wait to start digging throught the volumes of info that I know is here!

It will change after your 100th post. I think it happens automatically.
