I want a BMW.
I’ve always wanted a BMW- ever since the early 80’s and I was a devoted subscriber to Road & Track magazine. (I preferred it to Car & Driver). I just always liked them. Sure I liked the lambos and Porsches and other exotics. But for sporty sedan, I listed after the Bimmers.
I’ve never had one though. The closest I got was my series of MINIs- which are owned by BMW and share DNA. That’s it. so it’s always been in the back of my mind.
And as spring springs, I again have the fever to get a different vehicle. And my thoughts turn to used BMWs.
I can’t (or don’t want to) buy a new one. Far too expensive. So used would be it. And I found two on Carvana that I quite like.
Would buying a used BMW really make me happy?
I’m not sure what I need, but changing cars probably isn’t it. Sure I’d like it for awhile, but I’m sure I would miss the uniqueness and other features of my FJ that I really like. And I’m sure I would regret spending the money- even though I can’t take it with me.
Plus keeping the FJ would be more frugal of me. I’m still trying to save up a lot so I can splurge and buy a place in Palm Springs. Or somewhere gay and fabulous. That’s my long term plan.
Honestly when I look at it, I think I swoile be better served by focusing on purging crap rather than accumulating more. And possibly spending money on trips and memories.
How adult of me, right? Not fun, but practical.
I like the BMW x3. I’ve gotten to drive one. It’s got two modes eco and sport. Performance on Eco is fine but sport just touch the accelerator pedal and it takes off like a shot. They are expensive to maintain though.
I’ve wanted a 1988 325is for a long time. Amazing performance as-is but highly tunable and gorgeous.
No! No beamer! Don’t become one of those people!
I’m on my 2nd X5. I toyed with the X7 when I bought my newest car last year bit it was just too big for my needs. is it perfect? No, no car ever is but I enjoy driving it and it looks sharp. The Hubby is thinking about ordering the I7…I think he just wants to one up me, but if he gets it I have a feeling I’ll be driving it more 🤗
