My Sad story

Hi
I had posted how cool it was to own a 05 325i a few months ago. Bought the car in October , had 6000 miles on it and loved it. I was in an accident a couple of weeks ago got hit by this crazy lady and now the car is totalled.
I had ordered the previous one and now dont really know if I have it in me to wait again. So currently am car shopping
If you come across any deals in this part of the country lemme know.

AZGal -

A sales guy at Chapman called me the other day with, what he said, was a smoking deal on an '04 330i just traded in. I just signed to do an ED next month on a 325i.....hope mine fares better than yours. Do you think the car saved you from any personal injury? Just curious.

Sorry about your mishap AZGirl!

Just got my car back from being rearended at a red light. It was a violent smack, and caused upwards of 7k in damages. I was so sick of driving either a Liberty or an Altima. You will be sooo happy to get in a new 325...patience my dear, everything will be righted soon. And the Evil One shall be back in a 1982 Corolla.

Mein Auto: ist alt.
I was rear ended in 2003 and the guy got out of his F-250 and, I kid not, said... "Man I need to be more careful. This is like the third time I've done this." Meanwhile my fiancee was in the car not able to see b/c the airbag hit her square in the eyes.

What is the purpose of that stupid cow pusher thing they put on the front of trucks anyway? To inflict more damage when they hit something?

Sorry for your loss. What kind of car was she driving?

good price on a 2005

I bought a new 2005 325i for $27, 035 last week, through carsdirect.com. It's a stripped down model-no options except metallic paint. It took about two weeks from emailing a request until the car was delivered to me. Oh, and that's before tax, plates and registration.

The bozo who hit me (driving a delivery truck with a LEARNER'S PERMIT) said "F***ing boss, put sh***y tires on truck..."

So many people drive who shouldn't, and our government does not have an inspection program in place for vehicles, so all kinds of garbage is rolling around.

Hey congrats on being back on the road again . What color did you go with? The 325 is a wonderful car - I can't imagine driving anything less. And yeah, you have to watch out with BMW's - the brakes are much better than most other people's cars. You never need to worry about hitting the guy in front of you - but look out behind you :-)

Enjoy the new car
