Which point was that?

My first car was a '67 VW Beetle in 1969. I think it cost around $1000. I was 16 and paid for it with my summer-job earnings.

My first BMW was a '71 R50/5 purchased in 1971. It cost $1,400 brand new. I was 18 and paid for it with summer job earnings and a small bank loan.

My first BMW car was a '69 1600 purchased in 1971 during college. It cost $1,295 used. I paid for it with a bank loan.

From then to now, you simply have to move the decimal one place and you get to my most recent 128i M-sport 6-speed purchase. Even college tuition between my first year in college and my eldest daughter's first year was a decimal-place difference, and she's now 33-years-old. God only knows what her Masters degree cost her over the past three-years, but she never asked for a dime!

My first car wasn't a BMW either. My post before was just a typo, relax.

Just saying that a lot of the (VERY nice examples of) people's first BMW's are bloody expensive. That all. Observation not judgement. No idea why you seem to have taken this so personally. Sorry if I gave the wrong idea!

Hi everyone! New to the forum. This place has been very helpful! I just purchased my first BMW - 2019 M550i.

When I was in college in the 90s, 1 of the jobs that I worked at was a parking valet. It was there that I discovered my first BMW to park - an M5! Obviously, I didnt do a Ferris Bueller and take it all over town, but it gave me my first taste of BMWs. Was love at first sight! Fast forward to now, and this car is the closest that I can get to that dream car, and it is everything that I hoped a car could be. It has been an absolute blast to drive, and my girls love how it growls in Sport Plus mode. Looking forward to many years of enjoyment!

First BMW was an E92 320i and it was my dream car at that point in life. Well not exactly the 2litre engine but living in the UK, and being 20 years old it cost me roughly $3000 JUST FOR ONE YEAR OF INSURANCE for a car like that. It was also the worst car i've ever owned. I've had it for 6 months only, driven about 3500 miles with it and it managed to break a drive shaft TWICE and this was by just moving off slowly from a light, before the timing chain snapped while driving on the motorway.

I've now owned an E60 525i for a few years which is starting to die I think so it's time for me to move onto an F10 535d in the next few months.
