I recently bought through private sale a '97 740iL in immaculate condition. I found out about the club, and figured it wouldn't hurt to join up. I hope to get involved with the community and at the very least make some acquaintances. I'm 20 years old, and many people get the wrong idea when they see the car -- I usually have to inform them that I've been saving the money for a long time, and it was something I really wanted as more than a status symbol. I love big sedans, heavy vehicles with power and purpose, form following function. I'm no mechanic, but I do like to spend time working on my vehicles and getting to know them so I can keep them in the best of shape. I'm glad to find that there is something of a camaraderie amongst BMW owners, and I'd like to be a part of that. I'll see you all soon.
