  1. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hello, I have some questions regarding my first purchase of a BMW 2017(or 18) 430i convertible. I would like to point out I do not know much about cars, so try not to get to technical. 1. Living In New Jersey, would you think it is a bad idea to get a convertible car in general? I am going for...

  3. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    I'm looking to buy a used 2008/2009 135i and I have a few questions. Generally, I want a hard top with less than 50k miles and a manual transmission. What price tag should I expect for this and what packages (if any) should I be looking out for?
  4. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a 2001 530i manual sport and I'm looking to upgrade. I need some help because I'm reading about various issues with some of my preferred models and wanted to get some advice since I'm going to buy a pre owned. I'm not in a hurry so i can be picky. I am also trying to keep the mileage...
  5. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello All..... I am new to this site and this forum. I am considering buying my very first BMW and would like some advice, opinions and thoughts on reliability. I have been primarily a Toyota owner most of my adult life but have ALWAYS admired and dreamed of owning "the ultimate driving...
  6. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I've always loved the e36 since the first time I drove one. So I fell as if it is time to take the jump and buy one. I've researched online for problems, but of course I cannot trust that these answers were from a people that actually maintained the car. So here I am. So can anyone inform me...
  7. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello everyone. Yes I am already over the disappointment of my first attempt to buy a BMW X3. The good news is that I have found another. It is about 5k more than the last but has half the miles, all my favorite options, Premium Pkg, Cold weather pkg, Xenons, Prem Sound etc. And it's in a...
  8. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    So yesterday I purchased my first BMW, a 2004 330i with the Sport and M Packages. I'm a college student who used to drive a VW Cabiro so this a a pretty nice upgrade for me! The car only has 33,000 Miles and I essentially stole it for it... 10,500. :thumbup: So could I possibly get links to...
  9. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hi, Let me first state that I'm new to BMW's and I'm actually shopping around for a convertible for my mom so I don't mean to ask totally stupid questions but these are questions I couldn't find answers to on the forum or online - we've narrowed it down to an E36 convertible and it has to be...
  10. E24 (1976 - 1989)
    Hello to all, Well, after a lifetime of wanting to have one, I got it. A 1985 5-spd csi. I probably should have posted this before I bought it but just couldn't resist losing it. My basic question is did I get a good deal? I'd appreciate it very much if someone could shed some light on my...

  12. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    My daily driver is a 1991 Miata with 178K miles. I've been to the track, ran the Tail-of-the-Dragon too many times to count, and been all over the SE and midwest US in it. Good perfromance, cheap to operate, rarely needs repairs, easy on tires, and FUN always! Getting in and out is catching up...
  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    and I would like to get some information from people that actually own one, before I do. **FORGOT TO MENTION IN THE TITLE THAT I'M LOOKING AT COUPES** Overall how is it? I know its great performance wise, but how about gas mileage, and the ride? I was looking at other posts and saw that some...
  14. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I really have no knowledge or experience with European cars. My first & only car is a 96 Honda Civic that i have for 13years. The car still runs perfectly & have had no problems whatsoever. After reading more up on BMWs, i hear they are quite expensive to maintain. Im planning to use the...
  15. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    I'm strongly considering buying a 2003 Z4 3.0 with about 50k on the odometer, but after doing some research there's one thing holding me back. It seems that they are pretty reliable mechanically, but every time something does fail, the repair bill comes out to about an average of 1k. As a...
  16. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I'm days away from buying my 1st BMW and could use some help on the interior. I initially looked at a 2009 335i xdrive and had my heart set on Montego Blue/Lemon combo. I decided on the 535i xdrive instead (needed something bigger) and can't find a similarly stunning interior to go with Deep Sea...
  17. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Just picked her up today for a paltry sum of $900. It's an 85' 325e Oxidized and rusty! Gonna show her some TLC in the coming months and I thought i'd check out some of the festers rides. Please post some pics!!!:thumbup:
