Hello Guys and Gals my name is Kevin. Just joined last night and I'm thinking about buying a used 2006 http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-s...Index=61&Log=0 . I just wanted to know if it is worth the price and what I would need to watch out for ? Any input would be great.

Hi Guys,

I'm in Hertfordshire England and run a 2007 630i Sport that presently has water in the drivers side footwells back (mostly) and front - but I guess crying only makes it worse

Cheers,

John

Mein Auto: 2008 M3
Hey all. Finally signed up after lurking for awhile I've owned a 330i and 330xi in the past. I finally got my 2008 M3 in June. My doctor had prescribed ambien for sleep and it made me do crazy things. I opened my garage door one morning and to my surprise there was a space gray M3 instead of my 330!! To this day I do not remember buying it but I'm sure glad I did! True story

Mein Auto: 2014 X1
Hi. I haven't owned a BMW since I was stationed in Germany many years ago, but fell in love with an X-1 at the car show a couple of months ago, and have decided to trade my trusty GTI in on one. I would love a sexy coup, but I am an amputee and part time wheelchair user, so a rear hatch is a must. Now I am just wating for a reply to my request for a quote!

Mein Auto: 2008 535xi
Hi folks! New to BMW and to Bimmerfest

I just bought my first BMW -- a 2008 535xi, and love it so far. Look forward to learning all I can in the forums.

I got the 535xi because I wanted something fun to drive, that was safe and reasonably fast, that looked nice and could be a good kid-hauler when needed. I know a lot of people don't like the E60 bubble butt, but (ha!) I do...all the other sedans these days look the same to me, so I actually like the look of the E60...it stands out.

Cheers!

Mein Auto: 2003 525i
Hello, I am a new member as well. I joined because I am learning as much as I can about my vehicle. If you have time I do need some help with my 2003 525i. When I turn on my heater it will only blow cold air no matter what temp. I set it at. The only thing I did recently was put in a new battery. Any suggestions?
Ken

Mein Auto: 2002 BMW 325xi
all new to me

Hi, I've own a Toyota Tacoma 4x4 for the last 10yrs and its time for her to go to a new home. I have always driven a vehicle of purpose and not enjoyment and now it's time for that to change. I have a 50 mile commute to work and I would like to start enjoying the ride. I'm thinking about a 325/330xi with a manual trans for year round enjoyment, living in northern RI we can get significant snows and working in CT the terrain is quite hilly and desolate at times so the assurance of awd is a comfort I do not wish to do without. So my only question is would you drive your car cross country tomorrow? thanks for all the input ahead of time.

Mein Auto: 1998 MZ3
New member to forum, but have been using this extremely valuable information since I bought my 98 M roadster in 2003. Thanks to the forum I completed: Seat bushings, eccentric RTABs for toe in problems, rear plastic window, shocks, struts, front control arms and bushings, clutch replacement. Still to go: power steering leak, AC leak (before summer in Miami). sounsd like a lot but really the car has been great with no "unexpected problems. Will post pics in near future.

Mein Auto: E38 740i M Sport
Smile Glad to finally be here!

I am new but have been reading posts here for a while in anticipation of purchasing my first BMW. I now own a 2001 E38 740i M Sport. I am in love with this car, but from reading the posts of most of the 740 Sport owners here I knew I would. It needs a few minor touches but it is really fun to drive. I am in the Bay Area but also have a home in Las Vegas and cannot wait for the first long drive. So, thanks for being here and I look forward to gleaning as much knowledge as I can from all of you.
