I will either get the new 5 Series BMW or the new C or E Mercedes. I think I'm done with 3 Series because of a) capacity and b) status depreciation.

I think doing this will add much more credibility to your persona. Totally agree with points a and b. The 3-series is now dime a dozen thanks to the popularity of Jersey Shore. Just yesterday, I saw a drive thru employee, drive out in an m-sport package 328i (one of your worshipers probably).

Out of curiousity, if you get the Mercedes, will you quit the Bimmerfest forum?

Do you prefer getting inside men or women? It will help with names.

Really? You've known me for three years and you are asking that? Your wet mouse is resembling you more each day

I need a badass name for a badass car, but I don't want it to scream muscle car. Its gotta show understated elegance that says power, speed, finesse, endurance to all equal sex appeal

"Wishful Thinking" ?

Because...
I wish my car would get me laid.
I wish my car was fast(er).
I wish I was as smart as CA.
I wish I was as witty as ///M.
I wish I was as car savvy as DSX.
I wish Kat lived closer, so I could get "what a woman wants" advice.
I wish my hair would remain on my head and not grow out of those bizarre, strange body areas.
I wish my car could get me laid.

Did I cover everything, Furby?

If you weren't dead to me before, you surely are now.

And yes the truth hurts.

I'm gonna go cut myself now

I hope Furby's car can at least give him some counseling after that...ouch! If all fails, there's always beer.

I think, looking at the average, this is a positive post that helps bring the BMW community together. CA, DSX, NK and Furby's body hair all do very well and get positive strokes, admittedly at the expense of Furb. I hope he can see the wood for the trees here and recognize the big picture benefit to the board from the post.

Furby- Just name it "The Bimmerfest." Doesn't that then cover everything?

Well, isn't this an uplifting start into the weekend. Furby's suicidal, the Brits appear communal as in the days of old, and it's still hotter than Hades. I am thinking a trip to Majestic is in order for some Weihenstephaner Kristall.

Thanks for the reminder, you sent me down to the beer fridge for a Paulaner Salvator.
Now to decide what to have with it for dinner....

If your car has a name it will come to you. Any name you try to force upon it will usually sound contrived. If you think that is a bit Zen, I Kant say I agree.
