We have three cars. My dog used to like the E61 better than any of the others, because he was arthritic and the E61 was the easiest to climb into. He's no longer with us, but the car is now "Ollie's Car".

All of our cars have names. My 2009 528ix is named "Bogey", my wife's 2010 CR-V is "Pugsly", and my sons 1994 525i is "Humphrey."

I have always named the cars and trucks. Currently, the truck is...truckasouraus. The Volvo fat emma. Assuming the BMW makes it into the fold that will be Ungaheuer.

During the summer (when the Miata is out of winter storage) the E61 is The Ultimate Driveway Machine. My neighbor mocked me for buying it and leaving it parked most all summer, except when I'm hauling things like kayaks.

After this July, when my CPO runs out, I'm sure there will be a couple of good names for mine.

Mein Auto: 520i E60
Yes, I did

my first E46, 320d was named little tracktor due to his diesel engine; the Z3 was Miss Zuku (from Zukunft, Z3 project name) and the actual 520i due to his alimentation (gasoline converted to methane-fuelled vehicle) and the big "transatlantic" dimensions, is CAPTAIN ANUS
