Brand new to the world of bmw

How's it going guys, just joined the forum the other day but have been reading through forum threads since last month when I got my 3 series. Picked her up around the 16th of last month, a 2007 328i with 53k for 15k. Sparkling graphite metallic with every option except idrive. (cold weather, sport package, lighting package, premium package,) Car is emaculant, and a 1 car mature owner who took great care of the car in addition to garaging it 99% of the time he's owned it.

This is my very first bmw and I can definitely say I'm in love with this car omfg. It's quick when I need it to be and comfortable and luxurious when I need it to be, who could ask for more. I definitely see how bmw attained it's prestige. Everyday since I've had the car I have the biggest grin on my face when I'm walking to or walking away from my car, even at stoplights I just can't get the grin off of my face. My gf thinks something wrong with me lol. I also have a modified Integra gsr that I daily so the bmw won't see too much mileage or wear and tear especially with a 7 minute commute. I really don't know how I've went without a bmw for so long.

My future plans for the car will be to definitely keep the look subtle but noticeable with the m tech steering wheel with lci paddles, bmw 313 wheels, m tech front bumper and rear, and black kidney grilles. Well, on to the pics shall we.

Nice ride.

For future reference though ... I'd probably black out your license plate number when you post pictures of your car.

Welcome, and nice car!

You'll get used to people flipping you off driving that, but don't worry, it's probably nothing you've done.

BMW tend to make cars that are designed well ahead of there years, so plenty often I get snarky comments from envious people, who actually drive cars that are newer and cost more than my own.

(The real cost in used BMW's that have already depreciated, is the maintenance... those are the problem).

lol, wow that's pretty crazy, I would never imagine people would act that way , are people really that way towards BMW owners? Thanks guys I really appreciate the comments. I notice the nice comments regarding the wheels, out of curiosity how popular are the BMW 197 wheels in comparison to the 313 wheels, I know beauty's in the eye of the beholder, just curious because of the price tag that the 313s carry from what I've seen so far.
