I doubt I'll get a BMW but, I would want an M6 Gran Coupe. That car is one of my favorite looking cars ever. The 8 is starting to creep up on me too.

I'm considering my first, a 2020 M5 Competition.
Local dealer has none and before I travel out of town am curious about the amount of road noise inside the cabin? Thoughts?

Been a BMW fan pretty much all of my life (in my mid 30s now) even though none of my family members cared about cars. It all started with the E30 and E31. Those were my dream cars in 1st grade. When the E39 came out, that was a car that made me love BMW even more.

After graduating college from Virginia Tech in 2008, it was finally time to buy a car (we didn't need one in Blacksburg VA). I immediately gravitated towards either an E46 or E39. I needed one pretty soon because I was starting a job the next few weeks in SC.

Ended up finding a 2000 BMW 328i sedan, with 5MT (did not want automatic) with sport package. It had a grey interior with walnut trim. Looked just like this:


Learned so much about how to maintain cars. Cooling system, window regulators, bushings ect...

Eventually I added an 1989 E30 325i convertible, also 5MT. Enjoyed working on it too, but this is where I really fell for top down motoring.

I sold both cars to get my dream car, the E92 M3. I remember skipping class on a Friday morning to watch its official unveiling online. Anyone remember this concept? I'll never forget hearing it rev on the stage and telling myself one day I'll own one:


In 2011, I made that dream happen. This is what the car looks like now and I hope to never sell it, even though I'd love a Porsche at some point in my life.


Then the bug hit me, and got an E36 M3 locally, and then a Z4M Roadster because I miss being able to drive with the top down and wanted to experience the S54:


Only BMW I'd consider now is the M2C with a 6MT, but don't really want to get rid of any of my current cars for one. I picked up a 2016 Tundra last summer as my daily driver, so now my M's are pretty much all weekend or nice weather cars. They're all in need of something, whether mechanical or cosmetic as they're all ageing.

Sorry for the long post! I really do enjoy checking out everyone's cars' as well.

Any tips on getting half decent photos with black car?
Overcast weather, sunset? Seems way too many reflections to get any good photos.
Shade or make them useful reflections.

My first was an e34iT. Wish I still had a copy of the original, but itís lost on a hard drive somewhere.

2013 320i

Once I added h&r springs and bilstein shocks, at stage 2 it was a really fun car. Sadly I blew the engine at 48k miles. Tempted to feel sorry for myself I was reminded that my friend blew his first M3 engine at 10k miles.

Mine is an e60 Lci I got a few weeks ago for a freaking steal. Currently learning how to use impa/ista and also throwing a 3Ē straight pipe and Borla resonator on once my dang parts arrive. Doing exhaust because something past my o2 sensors was creating back pressure so I figure chop it all off and I can also get nice sound at the same time.

Riding on 20s, widebody, and spacers on the back wheels make it look MEAN. There was so much back pressure that I was only getting about 50-60% of the power so Iím incredibly excited to get all my little things done on it.
