Mein Auto: 1993 BMW 318is
'93 318is in Santa Barbara

I bought my first BMW a few months back to replace my totaled '88 Jetta (some people don't seem to heed red lights). Totally love driving it and its been solid so far. I have the typical E36 door panel and window issues which I'm still trying to solve, but other than that its a great car!

Thinking about putting a roof rack on it and saw this picture
http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/att...6&d=1166675216

Glad to see Santa Barbara has a major presence on this forum! Any consensus on good independent auto shops for bimmers in Santa Barbara?

Hey guys, I've been creeping all over this site ever since I purchased my car. I'm the owner of a 1993 325i (First BMW). I figured, since I'm always on here for any information about it, I might as well join. Thanks to everyone for all their posts that have helped me out over the last year.

E) has AWD
F) cost below 15K

God bless the 2002 325XiT! Never thought I would LOVE a wagon!

I look forward to driving North every weekend now and my GF and I are fighting over the keys leaving the poor 2006 A4 sulking in the driveway

Great sight, I have enjoyed reading the threads!
