Hello all! I am very happy to be a part of the BMWCCA. You guys seem like a great crowd to roll with and I cannot wait to meet up with my local chapter (Sandlapper). Here is my story: When I was in high school, I worked on the weekends cleaning an apartment complex in North Bergen, NJ. It was managed by a BMW employee that managed the apartment on the side. I don’t remember what he did exactly for BMW, but I knew he had a new car every few months. He would come over to my house and show me his sick new ride with all the bells and whistles. He once took me out for a spin in a 5 series. Man oh man, I was hooked!!! I told myself that I one day would own a beast of car like that. Okay, now in my adult years: Eight years ago, I met my beautiful wife, who too shared a love for BMW’s. Every time I pointed out a bimmer to her, she would grin like a kid and say, “oh yeah, one day, not today”. So, I made a promise to myself that I would get her one before I did. This year, a week shy from her birthday and our five year wedding anniversary, I decided to give her one gift that would have me covered for both occasions. A 2013 BMW 328i with the M sport package. She's been kind enough to let me drive it every once in a while. Next plan, for me to get a job at BMW so I can get my own car, lol. PS. I lost contact with my former employer and have tried to look for him for years. His name is Benjamin B. (last name was french), worked at BMW, lived in Jersey City, NJ around 1998-2002. Maybe someone out there knows him.
