1997 Honda Civic Hatch B18b Swapped

2004 Acura Rsx Type-S on Nitrous

2012 Kawasaki Ninja 650R (still current)

2008 BMW 128i Premium


I absolutely love my 128i, not sure if I am completely sold on it, I have been debating an Audi next, but that will probably not be for quite some time.

Bit of a chequered history:

2000 E46 316i SE
2000 E39 525i SE
2001 E46 320Ci (was written off while parked up when only 3 months old by a passing driver who blacked out!)
2001 E46 325i M Sport
2002 E46 330i M Sport
2002 E46 330d M Sport <-- my favourite of all the E46 BMWs I had
2003 E46 330Ci M Sport
2003 Volvo S40 1.8i SE (lol)
2004 Saab 9-3 Aero Convertible
2007 Nissan X-Trail 2.0dci 173 Adventura Explorer
2010 Lexus IS220d F-Sport
2013 (soon!) F31 320d M Sport

Basically, between early 2000 and earliy 2003 I worked for an IT consulting company that was part of the BMW group so was able to make use of the BMW Management car scheme - under which we had to hand the car back before 10k miles or 9 months, whichever came first. When I left there, the next company I worked for forced me to use up one of their existing unallocated lease cars (hence the terrible Volvo) and then I ordered the Saab.

Looking forward to returning back to a BMW though

Other driver

New ride is an 08 335i with sport package. Very quick and handles great. It probably would be the fastest car almost anyone has ever owned but not for me. I got it for a daily driver, my other car is an 02 Z06 Corvette with a full A&A supercharger system laying down 615 RWHP on 91 non ethanol.

'88 Toyota MR2 S/C. Best car ever made using the (fun*reliability)/cost method.
Drove it like it was stolen for 22 years and nearly 250k miles with negligible maintenance or repairs.
Would still be driving it if the head gasket hadn't started leaking.

Next car will be a Lotus. I like the Z, but I long to get back to mid-engine.
It was a toss-up when I bought the Z, but the Lotus was so flimsy I was afraid I'd be forever fixing it.

Turns out I have the Z up on stands and torn apart at least once a month.
Not that I'm complaining about that. With the help of this forum, it's become my new hobby.

2008 BMW 335xi -Wife's car

Currently looking for my DD, inbetween a 997 911, or BMW M3; BMW being the smart choice and the 911 being my inner child. I've always bought american, wife convinced me to buy the Saab, hated it; made me buy the 335xi for winter driving and its been an impressive DD was living in Upper Michigan and it muscled through the snow on all-season tires, never been stuck. she drives 100 miles daily for work and doesn't complain; up to 119k miles and have only had minor repairs except when the water pump went out unexpected. Turbos are making some noise but at 120k miles I can't really complain. Glad I didn't judge foreign cars based on the SAAB.

What did everyone drive before getting hooked on BMW?

What does it mean if the light turns on while I'm driving? What should I do if ... What should I do if the light goes out before I take the vehicle to the shop?
