+1As you are a young and evidently responsible person in a fortunate position, consider a few suggestions:
1) If your father can afford a 330, he can afford to send you to BMW's performance driving school. If not that, then please attend something similar. BMWNA sponsors car handling clinics for younger drivers.
2) Join the BMW CCA and attend local driver training events. Find a good mentor and learn how to navigate an auto-x course.
3) Read Roundel (which you will receive due to following #2 above.) From this you will learn more than can be summarized in one post.
4) Show leadership in your decisions: Elect to not carry more than one peer-aged passenger at a time. Avoid transporting friends of friends, particularly after dark. You don't ever need to show off your skills to anyone your age. Just because you will have 'wheels', does not obligate you to do anything that a friend asks. Opportunity and responsibility come together.
You are very fortunate, so use good judgement in your decisions. Many of us lost very close friends in avoidable accidents at an age close to yours.
Lastly, get lots of pictures of your car when it is new. Some day you will want to remember your first car and how much fun it was.
lol, I was waiting for you to chime in again at some point. The crown goes to andrewket for reviving this ancient beast.Oh boy, one of my favorite threads. REVIVED.
The 335i is a wankers car. I prefer the old school Ferrari F40.
Oooh, that was the upscale edition of the Tempo! Truly a magnificent car for the history books.I shared a 1993 Mercury Topaz with my dad. Yeah, I've come a long way
I think I may be partially responsible for bringing this thread back up. :banghead: I posted this message the day before andrewket resurrected this abomination of a thread:lol, I was waiting for you to chime in again at some point. The crown goes to andrewket for reviving this ancient beast.
