1 Bimmer in the family (had to sell, will get another in 3 or 4 years), 1 Beemer that we still have and love!

The poll says BMWs, not bimmer or beemer. I voted two.

'86 325e
'99 F650

We've also had a '76 2002, a ?? Bavaria, and currently have a '91 525i in the immediate family.

7, I hadn't counted them up for a while.

Current:
2002 M3
2004 X5

Past:
1972 2002
1967 1602 (rebuilt for drivers schools)
1977 320i
1988 M3
2000 328Ci

The styling/change issues aren't new. When the 320i replaced the 2002, people hated the "overweight/soft/pig" of a car that the 320i was. OK, I enjoyed mine a lot, kept it for 10+ years. BMW has changed direction before and caused all kinds of unhappiness among the ownership like us, but things always seem to come around.

I think that I have owned more than 15, not counting bikes. My first car was a 1960 502 2.6l V8 I bought in Stuttgart. I shipped it back to the east coast and drove it to San Francisco. I wrecked it and traded it for an R 69S basket case.

6...see my signature. So far my favorites are the E46 330i ZHP and E39 528i Sport but the E36 318is was a great intro to Bimmers.
