Loved mine, but sold it so no.

However, I will buy another one day.

Very attached to it. It was love at first sight, that's why I drove over 300 miles to go get her! She's got every option I wanted, she's sexy to look at, fun to drive, loads of power, couldn't ask for more.

Not attached. My e90 is my forth BMW in 20 or so years.
I've owned a '78 530i, '88 e30 M3, '97 e36 M3 and now a '08 e90 335i.
I stopped being attached to cars while getting rid of my e30 M3.

Give me the right amount of cash, and you can pretty much buy any piece of stuff I own.
Stuff you can replace. People you cannot.

I'm on my second bmw. I loved my first, but idk how attached i was to it. I couldn't wait to get a new one.

but I'm in love with the 328 i have now. I've had it a little over a year, and now i've committed to a 335i and i don't know how i'll feel once i'm driving something else. to be honest, ik how it sounds, but i think i'm going to miss it even though i'll be driving a 335.

I'm giving the one i have now to my brother, so it's not like it will be gone, but i know i'm going to be pretty worried knowing he's driving it.

lot's of road trips, memories, and fun in this car. i might end up trading with my brother after a couple weeks.

taking the new one to florida the day i get it though

I love my ride. Actually, today would actually be 5 months since I've had it. This is my first OWN car, I've been driving my parents cars before that. We've had BMW's in the past as a family, and our first car was a E36 328i and we also own a E60 525i in India.

I'm really obsessed with my baby tho. I try and spend as much time as I can with her (even taking her out for 15 mins on lunch breaks) and can drive her just for the fun of it like others have stated.

I started this thread to hear about your story about your first bmw or several bmw's you have had. hope to hear nice stories!
I started with BMWs in 1985, at age 17, with a euro-spec 1984 E30 323i. I've since owned a 92 325is, 96 M3, 01 M3, 02 M5, 01 325i and now an 08 335i. To be honest, each generation of BMWs that I buy, I'm a little more disappointed that the "BMW-ness" is not as strong as it previously was. I got my E90 in February (it's daily driver #2) and I'm already shopping for something else. The E90 just doesn't drive like I think a BMW should...the steering feel (which used to be the best in the biz) is now quite a bit more BLAH and the suspension and overall ride just sucks compared to earlier cars. My favorite was the E30, second was the E36 M3.

I going to take my time and drive a handful of other cars before I decide if I'm going to punt the E90. I will say that it's spending a lot more time sitting in the garage then I thought it would. I know you don't hear this often, but I really like my BMW dealer (Autobahn BMW in Fort Worth) and will miss their location and service if I leave BMW. They also sell P-cars and I'm considering a Cayman S as a replacement but I'm not jazzed about owning another 2 seater b/c I already own one and I'm currently shopping for another, a 68-71 big block Corvette.

..so much so that I traded a 2011 Sonata 2.0T Limited in for my 09 328xi... It's been 5 years since my last bimmer (had 3 overall: a 1985 325 coupe; 99 328i and now the 09 328xi) and I love it.. hell I drove 50 miles with the radio off and just enjoyed the quietness and the purr of the engine!
