it doesn't matter man... it SOUNDS as "bimer/beemer/beamer" because of the B and M... some people call it B.M, who cares, there's NO right or wrong

it's bimmer, beamer is the motorcycle.

But most people just use them interchangably nowadays.

however... the proper and traditional denotation is bimmer for cars.

SWEEEEET.

I think beemer sounds better, bimmer sounds like a rich english butler term.. or some guy would use it talking about his 740i
