Mein Auto: 2009 335xi | Monaco Blue
So, I was seeing another car for a while....

It was a Jeep actually.

I lurked these forums for several years while I had a relationship with a 2000 328i, but she was a high maintenance dame and after 7 years we grew apart as I realized she only wanted me for my wallet. After an ugly and expensive breakup I left the hallowed halls of Bimmerfest to have a passionate affair with a saucy 2005 Jeep Rubicon LJ. I had found someone who didn't insist on 93 octane champagne every night, but instead loved to get wet and dirty. And she liked it rough.

For a year and a half we were inseparable and traveled extensively to places my high society gal had always refused to go. It seemed to be a match made in heaven. That made it all the harder for me to admit she had a drinking problem that I just couldn't afford any more. She had always been a hard drinker, but it had never really bothered me until I got a new job and started spending most of my time in town. She began constantly asking for money and my friends and family didn't like being around her anymore. I ignored it for months as the problems grew worse, but she had just gotten too difficult to be with, and so I decided to let her go.

My thoughts then turned to how happy I had been before in the arms of my 1st love, and so I began to long for the life of quiet sophistication I had enjoyed with her. There was no hope of salvaging my old relationship, but I began to search for another who could give me the same satisfaction I had felt before.

That was when I met my current love, a 2009 335xi, and in a moment I was completely smitten and forgot all my worries about whether she would one day turn into a gold digger as well. So I submitted to my desires and took her there on the spot. While I was not originally impressed with the long string of letters after her name that indicated the advanced degrees she holds, I have discovered that she is a most worthy companion who is 10 times the better of my 1st lover.

And so for the moment I am in awe and do not care that one day (probably just after 6 years/100K miles) she too will turn her back on me and become abusive as the others did. I am swooning to the siren's song (not the 5-0 kind) and I return humbly to Bimmerfest, able to admit that I was wrong to have ever left, and willing to introduce myself as I should done on that hot August night so many years ago.

Oh yeah - nice to meet ya'll too.

Mein Auto: BMW X3
Post Introduction

Hello bimmerfest members. I enjoy very much driving my 2005 X3 stick-shift I purchased in 2009. i also enjoy working on my X3 at the DIY sessions offered by the National Capital Chapter of the BMW CCA. This is my first BMW, in my younger years I drove a Porsche 356 and a Datsun 240Z. I am looking forward to meet online with fellow enthusiasts and will try to participate in the forums.

just picked up my X3

Introducing myself

I've owned a 2000 BMW 323 for the past twelve years. After 300,000 Kilometre, decided it was time to get a new car.
Test drove Audi Q5, Lexus Rx350 - none could compare to the X3's drive in my opinion so yesterday, took delivery of the 2013 X3. Looking forward to another 300,000 kilometres of fun driving

Hi All!

Hello my fellow Bimmer's (is that the correct plural?), the wife and I have a Ford Flex (family car), and are looking to do a ED in spring next year, currently looking at the 750 and 550. I saw some posts on here before I joined about not much difference in body style. I have a funny story about that, we went to a dealership in Concord (waiting on a windshield repair, so had some time to walk around), we kept walking up to 2012 5's and I told my wife, here is a 7! Then I'd walk to the back and say, "ummm, maybe that car over there is one". Even the salesperson that came out walked over to a 5 thinking it was a 750... craziness.

Off my rumbling, glad to be here, I look forward to this journey, any advice on a good dealer in the California bay area for ED? (I'll post over there too!), V/r, Tim.
