Hi all, new to the forum!

Hi all. I am a new 325xi owner. Prior to this, I owned a Saab 900SE turbo. I must say, the Beemer is a beautiful machine. I already have an issue with the car, however. Appears the passenger rear/stop/reverse/turn signal is working intermittently. The good part is...it's a recall issue and I get a loaner. Love this brand already.

BTW, does anyone in the Hunterdon/Warren county areas of NJ use a mechanic who owns Flemington Foreign Car in Flemington, NJ? If so, please let me know about your experience and/or recommend another mechanic. Thanks and have a great day.

Mein Auto: Acura MDX 2004
Hi, everyone. I'm in the research phase right now. After stumbling across a used M4 Coupe while shopping for a new car for my wife a couple of years ago and it was love at first sight. Sadly, she picked the more "responsible" Acura TL. With another driver just getting a license, we're thinking of adding a fourth car. I'm pushing for a slightly used E86.

Hope to learn as much as I can before I actually start shopping.

My wife had a Acura TL and decided to get a 335xi coupe. About a week later I decided to trade in my F150 for the X3. We both really like the BMWs and look forward to driving many miles.

Recently picked up a 1997 528i with 95,000 miles. Found the forum looking for a window regulator fix. First order of business is to find Lancem and place an order!

Looking forward to learning all sorts of great things here.

Smile Newbie-Primo M5

Hello everyone,
I just acquired my first 2002 M5 Beast after selling my e39 M3 Convertible. I am looking forward to meeting you and hopeful will have some nuggets of wisdom on various mysteries re:BMW's. I'd like to be helpful and not just a member that takes and doesn't give back something, shoot, anything.

My brother is the Head Foreman of all the mechanics here in Roseville,Ca. at the Roseville Autowest BMW Dealership. He has been a Certified Master Mechanic for BMW there for over 20 years. So if I don't know the answer to a specific question ( which I probably won't ) LOL, given a little time, I'm sure I can get the correct information replied back to you, straight from the horses mouth, as it were.

Looking forward to meeting you in the near future !!!

Sincerely,
Primo M5 ( Warren )

Primo,

You have to be one of the luckiest Bimmer owners that I know. Your own personal mechanic.

So, Primo, not just a mechanic and a geek too. Can't get any better than that.

Cool

Hey all -

Just joined, but I've been driving "Chubby" for about 8 years...a 1986 E30 325. Unfortunately Chubby is on her last legs...odo stopped at 201,xxx several years ago, the engine probably has another 50-100k worth of life, but I can't keep up with other mechanical issues.

I'm currently shopping around for a used Bimmer, got my eye on an E46 325i right now and hoping all works out!

Talking

I am a new member of the BMW forums. I have a 2008 335i and a 2009 X5 and both of them are in good shape. Except that I have to change the windshield on them because of the stones that are thrown at the windshields on any California highway. I have no way of collecting my losses.

Hi Everybody,

This is my first post.

I have just pulled the trigger on a brand new BMW 640D Motorsport in Deep Sea Blue with Ivory Leather after having borrowed one for a couple of days and been blown away by the car!

Some great deals in UK from BMW on Personal Contract Hire at the moment, which means I can run this 70,000 car for the price of a 3 Series! Result!
