I bet that E30 is worth a pretty penny if it is still stock.

Completely stock no mods and all service records in a folder with window sticker. I plan to pass the car onto my son later in life.

I got my first BMW in 1970. A brand new 2002tii.

The most exciting car to drive I've ever had . I did rallies, slaloms and hill-climbs with it , have beaten the hell out of it and it never let me down.
I don't think they make them that tough anymore but I sure enjoy my new to me 2007 Z4m.

Amazing. Well done! Only thing that sucks is how little you've driven it! Otherwise congratulations! Go drive it more! :P

First: 1977 or 1978 E21 320i

Looks similar to this:



Not only my first BMW, but my first car ever. It barely ran, but I loved it. Sadly, it just stopped working after awhile since it was already an old rust bucket when I got it.

The steering was something to behold: non-power steering gave me a workout pulling into parking spots, but on the road it felt great! My best memories as a foolish teenager in that car was placing the automatic in neutral, revving to redline, then slamming it into gear to experience the 2 seconds of glorious burnout! It wasn't what I would call fast or quick, however, so that burnout was the only sensation of speed I could muster. Come to think of it, the hooliganism probably led to its eventual demise.

Years... and YEARS later I came back to BMW with the F30 328i. A F30 340i replaced that, then a F80 paired with an i3. Then I got a new i3 and a new F80 M3 CS, both of which currently sit my garage. I actually almost got a new i8 last month, but I have put that on hold until I see more news on the M2 CS.

My first BMW is a 2008 535xi. In searching for something more suitable to driving in winter living in the front range mountains of Colorado, I was looking for coupes and sedans that ticked off all the right boxes. My mechanic had two N54s and thus my introduction into the BMW I6 line. A single owner, grandma driven car with 56K miles became a buy on sight and my new daily driver. A few bolt ones and MHD flash later, it’s a sublime touring car.

Wanting to take my summer/fair weather game up a notch, I began shopping for a 135i 6spd and finally found the right car at a great price. I was set on Sedona Red Metallic and a 6spd. While it’s an N55, it will be sufficient for my canyon runs at Stage 2+. Once it’s time for the turbo to go, it will be my excuse to go Pure Stage 2 with an exhaust and methanol injection. I already have a race car when I need the pure adrenaline rush from speed and enjoy the balance from a FBO + tune I can rip in and out of corners.

Having been a Jag lover for two decades with various I6 power plants, I fell in love with the Teutonic twins of the N54 and how refined and smooth power delivery is while chewing through an 80mi round trip commute most of the week.
