    I was poking around here and noticed somebody going on about how he couldn't sell his M5 because his wife liked it. There ensued a wistful sigh from several members whose wives-well, let's just say they weren't car guys. :eek:

    This got me wondering: Am I the only dude lucky enough to find a dame who's more of a BMW junkie than I am? I'd like to have the money she spent on matting and framing three Mobile Tradition posters!

    I just wish I were quick enough to remember to downshift the roadster when she's next to me and floors her damned 335i. Dang torque monster-that's cheating!

    By the way, her former husband-my ex-husband-in-law-still has an E28 M5. . . and a 2002 Touring.

    That would be my wife. She is a peach.

    That M5 was very close to being parted out due to the fire damage (before I bought it) but she practically ordered me to spend money and time on it. I am currently rebuilding it for Vintage at theVineyards in May.

    She wants me to drop an S52 or M54 into the 325ti in the future, because the 200+hp lightweight flywheel and M3 exhaust equipped M50 that is in it now could be faster. You are not alone, but the good ones are rare.

    Ditto. My wife test drove a bunch of cars and loved the 535i. Mostly because of the power and the handling. We have a no boring cars rule at home and I constantly tease her that her next car might be a Camry if she doesn't behave. That gets me a nice one finger salute and mention of my mother in unflattering terms.

    My wife drove my 1998 M3 once and proclaimed; "you feel too much of the road...", like it was a BAD thing.

    She will most likely NEVER drive the supercharged M Roadster! However, she may like the 325 Touring that arrived in the driveway a couple weeks ago?

    No matter what, she will never be confused for an Automotive enthusiast, ever!

    I'm single, it's cheaper to maintain a BMW than a woman :p

    Beverly - aka "Madame Secretary" due to her being the longest serving chapter officer - sold her 1999 A4 and picked up the M3 because the Audi had no soul. While she does prefer an automatic, I have witnessed her driving a stick and replacing her brakes. Her dad taught her well... and apparently wanted a son!

    She volunteers as a grid official for the SCCA, loves being around the cars and is not afraid to push cars into place or send a driver back to the paddock for an infraction and never tires of watching racing on TV. God I love this woman!

    I have had two BMW's with many dollars in Dinan mods. My wife is cool about the entire thing and enjoys the cars as much as I do. I am, however, having to work a bit harder on getting her to accept the potential purchase of the Dinan Intercooled supercharger system for my M3. I am making progress though.....

    My wife put a set of Koni shocks on her Christmas list once.

    That will take you a WHILE to pay off...

    ... especially in marital "currency"

    LOL.

    Just sign the "lifetime indentured servant" contract, be done with it, and wait for your prize to arrive. :D
