Question Where are the Bama folks?

Wondering if y'all are still around. I'm back in the saddle again. Had an apparent brain malfunction and thought I was tired of driving a manual so I sold my old 328i for an Infiniti G35 with auto.







Then I found another 08 328i 6MT with the same mileage as my old one.



I'll be slowly making it look as good as the old one.

Sweet!!! Do you go to car meet? Just curious why don't you get the 335i instead of 328i?

I've been to a couple local BMW meets a while back, and the Cars & Coffee meet at Brookwood Village a few times. I'd love a 335i, but they just have too many problems to deal with for me.

I got a ticket in Alabama coming home to Atlanta from Destin. Got a speeding ticket on the highway from Dothan to Columbus. Rural Henry County. 20 over, had the car for about 2 weeks, It was stupid.

I remember seeing your car on Craigslist back during my hunt for a 335! Loved the Monaco blue with saddle. I'm located in Alabaster and am always looking for fellow BMW owners to meet up with!

Definitely was a nice car and your new one is coming along quite well! I like the fitment of your new set up. I used to head up the "IS's of Alabama" Facebook page back when I was in the Lexus IS scene, but soon will be making a "Bama Bimmer" Facebook page and group for everyone around here to connect. I'll of course post it on here when I get it going.

The "Bama Bimmer" Facebook Page and Group are now up, as I said I would do back in January. Created in hopes of connecting with fellow, local, BMW
enthusiasts, through a quick and simple format.

Do a Facebook search for "Bama Bimmer" and look for the logo posted above.

I was surprised that after I bought this car this past summer, there were no local groups for BMW's. I'm friends with people in "Bama GZ-R", which is a group for Nissan/Infiniti Z,G, and GT-R enthusiasts, along with my previous creation of "IS's of Alabama", for Lexus IS enthusiasts. Being familiar with these groups was the inspiration behind creating a way to connect for BMW owners and enthusiasts in Alabama.

I see plenty of tastefully modded BMW's in the Birmingham and Tuscaloosa areas, so I'm sure those guys are members of this forum. I look forward to meeting all of you and sharing our common interests in BMW!

Just noticed that someone else made a "Bama BimmerS" facebook group. I guess this happened between the time I said I was going to do it on here, and the time of me actually making the page, because before I made the page, I searched to see if anything was out there, and there was not.

Anyway, still looking to meet some fellow e90 owners/enthusiasts and others here in the Bham area!

Yes I did. Search Facebook for "Bama Bimmer (From Bimmerpost)". There's also one somebody else made called "Bama Bimmers", but that's not us. The logo I posted above is the cover photo for our group.
