E82 / E87 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by a naturaly aspirated inline 6 in the 128 or the turbo twin power inline 6 rocket sled 135.

My sig covers the most recent cars.

Cars are fun. Love that I've been able to get a different one every 2-3 years (= I can afford it).

Cars, photography (currently use 5 cameras) and bicycles.. I like to keep 'em in rotation.
