What did you own before your BMW?

What did you trade in to get the BMW you are driving today?

For me it was a F150 BUT I once had a 325E and loved it, that's why I went back to BMW. No regrets but the truck was good for hauling stuff around.

I "traded" a '91 318 for my current car. It wasn't much of a trade, as in I sold one in September 2002 and bought the other in June 2003.

My parents turned in an off-lease '00 323 for their current '02 325. They had a '99 323 before that they turned in on the '00.

We're BMW loyalists, more specifically, 3 series loyalists. Between my father and I, we've had 2 E21s, 1 E30, 1 E36 and 3 E46s. Now, one of us needs to buy a 2002 to say that we've had it all, and then some.

Before I lost all perspective and sense of reason and bought the M3 I had a perfectly good 328Ci 5spd. Before that I had a silver Honda Accord. Now there is a boring car.

I did; honest.

And even though it was Japanese (and not German), I could swear that it actually had a soul (not to mention a conscience) as well.
