    Hello all, Can we do this? Maybe the advice shared here can kinda "reset" common questions. Hopefully the answers will help fellow owners who are or will be buying these as they come off original leases or now that they're in our used car price range (like me) finally. *TLDR/BLUF* USA 2013 BMW...
  3. BMW i3 I01 (2014 - 2020)
    Hi all, totally new here and new to the i3. I just started looking at possibly buying a used i3 for local errands/running around. I won't need it for long road trips and have another car to use when range would be an issue. So I'm looking for something reliable, green and fun to drive within a...

  8. E60 M5 (2006 - 2010)
    Happy Friday ! I currently own a 2006 530i with 145K miles, much repairs done. Anyway, I have always wanted an E60 M5, always ! And now seems like a great time to purchase one since the prices are ridiculously affordable for such a car! The problem is....majority of these E60 M5s are in the...
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi everyone I just bought a CPO 328xi sedan (2011). Black Sapphire. I love it. It's my first BMW. There's a lot to learn. The nav alone already makes me feel like an old old man (I'm in my 30s). I had a little trouble getting my iPhone 5 to pair with it, then it worked, I could stream...
  10. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi everyone, Yesterday I collected my first bimmer, a 2003 320d SE (E45), with full leather and wooden trim. I absolutely love the car! I joined a different bimmer forum prior to this but have decided to give this a go because of the rudeness of the other one. I am a web designer and computer...

    Hello Bimmerfest. Noob here, in the forums and with BMWs. Ok, so I bought this 2001 325i w/130,000 miles on it from a little hole in the wall dealer about a month ago. I decided to buy here instead of buying from a private seller to hopefully avoid a disappointing experience. Everything was cool...

    Hey guys I just picked up my very first car and its a 2011 328i Sedan White on Saddle. With the Navi, Xenons , and H-K.

  13. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hello All, I picked up a 1984 BMW e30 with 190,000 miles (*sigh) from South Tucson a few days ago for $950 (CLICK LINK BELOW FOR PHOTOS). It runs OK. I mean, it got me 12 miles back home without any overheating; fairly consistent idle at stops. Feels like it's running pretty rough - but it has...

    Hello forum-goers. Before I get into it, I want to thank everybody who has contributed to the wiki. The wiki was a huge resource for my wife and I when we went looking for a replacement car after my old '83 300D Mercedes finally went into retirement. When I went car shopping, the wiki gave me...

    Hello Guys, Just recently became a Bimmer owner 4 months ago, '95 525i. With my previous cars I've always gone to a mechanic but with my Bimmer I'm wanting to be a DIY kinda guy. In any case, I live in L.A. and am planning a trip to Las Vegas the weekend on March 5th. "Vegas baby, VEGAS!" I...
  18. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Dear Forum Dwellers, Yesterday after much research and contemplation I made the jump and upgraded from an '06 VW GLI to a CPO 2007 335i. Couldn't be happier with the purchase. Having spent nearly six months looking around online, building/pricing a new model, and even considering ED this...
