Post your BMW ownership BIO. Pics inside

I have always been fascinated with BMW's but had never owned one until this summer. I will admit there are times of frustration but there are also times where I appreciate it's character and that of other models. I have seen some really nice cars, older BMW models in great shape and high mileage ones running strong. I have heard horror stories and maintenance/repair nightmares and I have also heard of problemless/run forever like new BMW's.

Post up stories and pics of your experience.

Here is mine:

2002 BMW 330Ci in Steel Gray Metallic. CFO's company car one owner purchased in August 2012 with 53,888 miles. The car was bone stock

-Sport/Premium/Cold weather

What have I fixed/had issues with/maintenance?

Currently has 64,700 miles

-Cooling system overhaul at 58,000
which consisted of:
-water pump
-temp sensor
-uppper and lower radiator hoses
-expansion tank

-Brakes! 58,XXX
-Brembo blank rotors
-PF Z rated pads
-ATE Super blue fluid


Xenons are a PITA, they work when they feel like it, I can start the car up and they both work, one, or none... the car reaches op temp and I turn it off and on again and they both work, or one, or none... I love Xenons but this is annoying.


-Style 68 wheels seen in picture? GONE
-Bought a set of Style 67 Forged 19' M3 wheels (4 fronts) offset 47

-Painted kidney grilles black which I hate at times and love at times
-That is it

Post up.
