When you see the same exact car that you saved up over 40 grand for years to be able to afford being driven by some snotty nosed kid who only paid (or his Mom did) 4-5 grand for it. Heartbreaking...................Especially when it has been riced out to the max. Dumped suspension, clear corners and everything blacked out. Its enough to make you puke!

You refer to them by their chassis designation, not their model number.

You know you're a BMW owner when your name is on the title.

I think it should be more along the lines of, "You know you're a BMW enthusiast when..."

When you drive your car for no reason so often your wife thinks you are cheating on her and makes you leave your cell phone at home.

LOL! Just did that yesterday on my rental car.

When you pull up to the gas pump in another car and the fill door is on the wrong side (did it twice yesterday)

Gotta be the chassis number naming scheme. I walked into the dealership the other day adn the salesman asked if I was looking for anybody, i replied,
"Nope just here to see the new F30."

the look of confusion on his face was funny.

When after you park, you always look back as you walk away.

You know you're a BMW enthusiast when..

You know about the crappy control arms and bushings, cooling system, the CCV from hell, window regulators, automatic transmissions, cracking sub-frames, sticking sun roofs, defective tail lights, etc, etc, etc and yet you still keep the car instead of running like hell from all these problems...

When you go out to eat and ask to be seated at a specific table just so you can keep an eye on your car.

When, after hearing thunder, you go and check on your car.

When it takes ten minutes to park your car - not to get closer to the entrance - but to find the safest place to leave it.

When you park as close as possible to a wall or devider in a parking lot. That way you only have to worry about one side of your car getting hit with another door.
