Thumbs up Acht (eight) so far.

OK here it comes, let me count:
E12 2002 (1970 I think)
E21 316i (1978 I think)and 323i (1980)
E23 745i (1985)
E34 535i (1990)
E30 318is (1991)
E36 325i (1994)
E46 325it (2003)

This makes a total of eight so far!

How's that any different from the length of time that you own your other cars?

1995 525iT
2000 Z3 Roadster 2.8
2001 Z3 Coupe 3.0 (replaced the roadster)
2003 325iT (replaced the 5-wagon)

I owned the 5-wagon for a bit over 5 years before replacing it (very recently) with the 3-wagon. The Roadster was only around for about 1.5 years before replacing it with the Coupe.

I don't see any more trades/purchases happening in the next few years... unless BMW imports an E90 wagon with a 3-liter... or perhaps a Z4 Coupe

Do Mini's count?

If so, 3

2002 Mini Cooper
2002 Bmw 325xi
2002 Bmw 525i

And I'm only 20

Lol, at this rate I should be trading in my 525i in a year for a 2002 745i... but I heard bad things about the 2002 7's, so I won't

I think I'm going to stick with the 5 for a few years.
