Hi, I just bought my first BMW last night a 335i convertible. My first new car ever was a Toyota and since that car I have owned two other Toyotas so this is my first venture in German engineering. Growing up I had an Uncle in Germany who had a BMW and I remember loving riding with him. My last car was a Solara soft top convertible and I do not think I will ever own a non-convertible again. So the 335 has been my dream car for about the last year. I feel silly but I have been reading the manual, and looking online and put a lot of research into picking this car. I love its sport mode and its 0-60 time and that all influenced the decision as well. I am looking forward to participating in the Club and enjoying the networking it brings.
