Its not the first one I owned, bought a '07 335I Sedan when I was stationed in Italy with 0 miles on that baby, owned it for about 9 months but due to impending Divorce, had to get rid of it Now I was able to save up enough mula to get another one, used, but still under warranty, and fully loaded like I originally intended it to be. Love it!!

You are certainly most welcome Mintyish.

I think they are better assembled in SA. I have not had a whit of trouble from my 2007 328i.

I wish you luck and glad you could join us here on Bimmerfest.

You sound like you know your way around already.

Mein Auto: 330Ci convertible
First BMW

Picking up my first BMW Saturday it's a 2005 330Ci convertible. I hope it's as good as it seems. To be honest it's not realy mine, its my wife's car, hopefully I get to drive it some. Makes my car seem like a clunker.

A perfectionist who didn't trust anyone else to work on it.

In other words. . .JACKPOT!! I now own the car of my dreams!!

I'm thrilled to be able to communicate, about BMW's, with other people who love and know about them.
Welcome.

Talking Charleston, sc

I am on my 3rd Bimmer, and due to gettin a little older, family, etc. have moved up to the 7 series. Got my 98 740 il a couple years ago, and still lovin it. I will be glad when my budget allows for a newer model 7 series, but it works great for now.
