Ok... everyone has to contribute...

1. I don't really know, I loved "moving things" for as long as I could remember. But to my knowledge I got a car book when I was around 6-8 and never looked back.. I remember I had 2 car posters... one of Alfa Romeo SZ (I loved that mean look!!) and the Chevy Corvette

2. I started loving BMWs around the end of gr. 8 (13)?... It was when my friend's brother was gonna get a M3 (but he never did).. I fell in love with E36..

I first loved cars when my uncle gave me a model car of an '87 Ferrari GTO. I played with the car every day. Then I fell in love with BMW's when my uncle bought an 1988-1989 white E30 325is w/ a full AC Schnitzer body kit. I spent a quater of my life in that car! In '92 my dad bought his first BMW, an E36 318i and it was more or less the only one in our entire neighbourhood (white heather in Scarborough). I crashed it in 2002 :( Now I bought a '94 318 (yes I bought it) and my love for all BMW's and most European cars continue to this day.

it was my 11 b-day and my parents got me need for speed 1 special edition. i fell in love with Porsches and then the love carried on to BMWs.
Model cars came into my life and i started collecting a whole bunch.
I saw the 89 M3 when i was 14 then saw Randy's M3 a couple years after at a car show. since then i was in love with Bimmers and German cars since.

I fell in love with BMWs when I started to learn to drive on a manual e30 325i when i was 12. It was great.. since then i just had to purchase 2 of them for myself.

Back home aT 1993 - 1995 I had summer job at the gas station and all complex beside on highway that was conecting Grecce with central part of Europe.
In those days highway in Yugoslavia ( Belgarde - Nis ) was not that busy cuz OF war and other $hit happening....

I often used to see Slobodan Milosevic's patrol with 540i-s and seven series....740il 750
I really fail in love with those BLACK E34 series ...
Even in those days I haD a chance to meet Marco Milosevic the son of X-Yugoslav president and other mafia boys...

I was 4 years old and my father pulled into the driveway with his brand new Plymouth Fury II. I've loved cars ever since.

Bimmers: The day they introduced the e36 M3 although I thought the e30 M3 was sort of interesting during it's day.

My parents tell me since I was like 4 I could ID cars on sight in Hong Kong, where there's a nice variety of cars.

I basically grew up around an E30, and the rest is history.

I started to love BMW's the day my dad came to pick me up from school in his new shiny black E36 he had just picked up that day from the dealer, back in 94!

08-06-2003, 06:33 AM
My family has had BMWs and a porsche since the good old 2002 was the four door to buy...I guess since we've had them all my live i've sorta taken them for granted

Until I I got my first car, A Nissan Sentra. After that it became obvious to me that a good car like a bimmer gives a whole feeling on the road compared to just any other car.

:rolleyes: I still like my nissan though. So reliable. Great on gas. Plus then when I use the 328, its more of an event.

I was 16 (kinda sparked the interest late in the game), and my father picked up his E38 740iL. After that I knew I had to get a BMW next. So a year later, I had to give my 91 SAAB 9000S to my sister who just got her license. I picked up my 1992 E34 525i shortly after. Ever since then I've been crazy about BMW's. Now 3 years later, I've sold the 5er ( i miss her) and have my E36 M3 .. and loving it!!! :)

ive loved cars as long as i can remember and started to love BMW's after driving my friends old e30, then wanted one after driving his newer 328

my grandfather use to own a 5 series back in Poland, I think it was the same as bmwm5lover's. He use to take me out for rides all the time, thats when I started like bimmers alot

08-06-2003, 07:32 PM
I was a hard core American Car fan, always admired the looks of the Bimmers, but always thought they were just over priced, until..... My dad bought a new 323Ci for my mom back in early '00. I took a drive and I was convinced. I bought my first BMW, a 1998 ti silver 323is in 2001 and traded it in this April on a 1997 328iC which I love even more! I still love my faithful ol restored 1989 Chevy Cavalier Z24 drop top but the BMW is really the ultimate driving machine :-D

I've loved cars since I was a little kid. I started out by loving American cars, up to this date, they are my favorite. I started looking into bmws because, one day I saw one of the coolest ones, the M5 I saw it, and totally loved the thing, ever since Ive into European and American cars.. I love them both the same..

They're Nice cars. They're Nice performance wise and I started to like them when i saw my bros friend doing donuts in his dads X5 in the snow.
