I'm 26 and bought my bimmer about bought a 98 328i about a 1.5 years ago. Put 10k down, financed the car, smacked it up, used insurance $ + some personal to pay off the balance of the lease.

My baby should be back in less than 1 week, i already go my rims refinished.

List of Mods:
Dinan Stage 3 Software
Dinan Cold Air Intake
Dinan High Flow Throttle Body
Fosgate 1000.1 Amp
Kicker L7 12" Solobaric speaker
Indash MP3 Player

Once i get my car back and pay off the guy for fixing it i probably will get the Dinan Free Flow Exhaust put on, and probably the strut bar so that i will have enough points to make it a Dinan 3

Well Tommy Boy, I was working full time with a construction company doing a Pipefitting apprentice, found out it wasn't my "passion" in life, but I stuck to it for just a little over 2 years, and thats when I bought my E30, now I sold it a little while back, and now I'm working for Mercedes Benz here in Calgary, its a sweet job for now, I'm just in a line up for a mechanical apprentice, hehe, hey, anyone know any leads or openings that need a mechanic apprentice? But yeah, so I'm basically starting all over again, and just saving my money for my next E30, would like to get a 325IS eventually, but don't worry, you'll get what ya want eventually. We all have to work hard for what we want, sometimes we don't always get it, but your turn will come, don't worry man, ya got your whole life ahead of ya.

its hard to save money if the family shit round you aint good, but i use to do some "not so legal" shit before...and it is a good way to get lots of money fast

bottom line, to get money gota work your ass off and make sacrifices

Cars bought by parents

We can't forget the people who had their cars bought out right by their parents.

Come on, you know who you are

Speak up, tell us how good it is ...

I bought my BMW at 21 ( I'm 23 now) , I had to sell my beloved motorcycle, (it just wasn;t practical) in order to get the car. Affording it is not as expencive as everyione thinks (allthough it's nice that everyone thinks that), basic car maintenance is a tad more than any other car, and if the car is maintained it;s so reliable that it is probably cheaper on parts than GM. Unliess you constantly modding it (like most people here) BMW not that pricey. It took me 2 years to find that equilibrium between affording university and affording a BMW...the solution = STUDENT LINE OF CREDIT... thank you TD Bank, (they'll be nocking on my door next year when I graduate).

I assure you, we all legally* paid for our bimmers through hard work and saving money.

*if you consider spamming legal
**this might not apply to all of us
