Does Anyone Have a Name for Their Bimmer?

I thought I would ask this question for fun. I always name my cars. After careful deliberation, I came up with the name Carl. How about anyone else?

Incidentally I have a 2010 335D.

It was back at the dealership a number of times in the first few months. So now it's the Bad News Beemer.

Yes - "Bemo" pronounced [be-mo], which is a common Eastern European derivative of the German pronunciation of BMW [be-em-ve]. To hell with the fact that cars are inanimate objects, this thread WILL be fun!

LOL.

I don't really have a name for my E93 but my SO does, in fact he has two names for it:

If he is negotiating with me for driving rights he calls it "Wunderkar".

If he is watching me back out of the garage top down, the car becomes the "POS".

(ps: he drives a MB land yacht.... )

I usually just refer to my car as "the princess" or "spoiled brat," because she is definitely both of those things.

Vicki. Like Vicki Vale, Batman's significant other.

Bad luck not to name your cars, boats, planes or kids.

Does your Navigation start-up screen say, "If I push this button, you will both be transported into my Mainframe Game Frame, where it is very dangerous" by any chance?

My little frahline is named Deedee as she is a diesel. The license plate starting with DD sealed the deal. I have named other cars like my old Honda Accord is Herman... he is kind of dumpy so the sedate mild mannered name was in order. He has 209k miles. The dodge is named Randy as he is a RAM truck.

Mein Liebling's stablemates are; 1987 Toyota MR2 is Mr. Two (not very original I know), 1990 Miata is Mr. Miagi and my 2002 F-150 is "The Grey Ghost" named after my favorite Schwinn "Krate" bike when I was a kid.

I think it was those Schwinn "Krate" bikes that got me hooked on cars, kind'a like a "gateway drug".
