Howdy folks -- Just bought my first BMW ('97 328i) from my boss at a very generous price (which I will not disclose because I don't want to inspire jealousy). It also represents (thank the gods) my return to a stick after a few years sharing only one car with my significant other. WOO-HOO! I'm joining specifically because of a specific problem, but I'm sure I'll return for years to come. Considering that I just spent my first three days of ownership cleaning intensely, I can already tell you this is a car to inspire deep commitment! Thanks for being here.
