There were a couple of months where I borrowed my sisters 2011 BMW 328i sedan while she was away from the country. Nice car, never could really enjoy it though since it was not my car.

I never got into BMWs until I moved here to Germany several months ago, as they are very plentiful here and seems to be the proper car to drive.

The list:
- '86 Pontiac Firebird, auto
- '89 Mustang LX hatch 5.0, 5spd
- '92 Mustang LX vert 5.0, 5spd
- '88 Mustang LX coupe 5.0, 5spd, supercharged
- '03 Nissan 350Z, 6spd
- '10 Mitsubishi Evo GSR, 5spd
- '08 Ford F350 4x4, diesel, 5AT(currently own)
- '94 Subaru WRX, RHD, 5spd(currently own)
- '10 135i, 6AT(currently own)

Motorcycles and Mazdas. I find BMW allows me to mix the feel of the two and add an sense of occasion in the mix.

Interesting thread... Dad started me out early, he owned the following:

-1984 BMW 325e (my first memory in a car at the age of ~18 months)
-1993 BMW 325is
-1997 BMW 540i
-2005 BMW 545i
-2011 BMW 535i xdrive

as for me, it took me around 8 years to find the brand, but I'm hooked...
-1998 Honda Civic EX
-2001 Audi TT 225 Coupe
-2001 Audi TT 225 Roadster
-2010 VW GTI

-2002 BMW M roadster
-2000 BMW M Coupe
-1987 BMW 325i (currently own)

I bought the M Roadster back in '10 to replace the GTI, but since then I've owned two cars at once, only recently have I discovered that BMWs are the only cars that really do it for me.. I've tried, and failed, to find a substitute (sorry Porsche, I'm stealing your marketing).

-1994 Audi 100 CS quattro
-1992 Audi S4 (RS2'd)
-1999.5 Audi A4 1.8TQMS
-2007 Audi A3 3.2Q
-2006 MINI Cooper S JCW


I recently sold the M Coupe to get something that will take my beloved E30 from daily driver duties. I'm shopping for a well-sorted E90 (335i), E92 (335is) or E82 (135is) that will serve as daily/autocross/HPDE until I'm ready for an F80 M3 someday...

I'm pretty sure I actually owned a few more rx7's but just for parts or short periods of time.

On a side note..... Mazda is developing the next rotary engine --16X
Rumor of a "next" RX7 based off the MX-5 platform but with a 300+ HP rotary in it..

I went from coupes to smaller and smaller two-seater cars and then onto bigger and bigger sedans. The whole reason that I went to BMW is because I needed the space of a four-door but still wanted a fun car to drive.

What's a Wankel Again?

Ok this is my primary car list where these have been my daily drivers or at least owned them two or more years. At a certain point I had 2+ cars roughly when I purchased the 850, as I am not listing the winter cars such as 86 Wagoneer and 97 Blazer and 14 X1...etc..

73 Mazda Rx3 - (Wankel) 119CU 99Hp (NO Redline) (Manual)
75 Chevy Monza - V8 (Actually designed for Wankel)
69 Buick LaSabre - V8 - 350CU 230 hp
83 Buick Skylark - V6 (ugg...don't tell anyone plz)
89 Firebird Formula - 305 (5.0) V8 225 hp (Manual)
93 BMW 850 CI - 5.0 V12 296 hp
02 Audi A4 - 1.8T 180hp (Manual)
07 Dodge Charger R/T AWD - 5.5 V8 350 hp
07 BMW M6 - 5.0 V12 500 hp (Manual)
12 Dodge Caravan R/T - 3.6 V6 283 hp (Ferrari of Mini-Vans)

Yes my first BMW was an 850CI with a manual; for I love cars...all types.

What you may glean about my car history is that I have owned almost owned every type of engine configuration from the rotary to 4Cylinder, V6, V8, V10 and V12.

What blows me away is that my current X1, the step-daughter drives that one for the most part, has 240 horsepower which eclipses if not comes close to the performance most of cars I have owned.
