Hi Everyone, Just joined today. My wife and I have 3 BMWs so I figured that it's about time that we joined the club. I've been a GM fan most of my life and worked at a Corvette shop in Chicago for almost ten years. About 7 years ago I got an itch to buy a roadster for my wife and I to take weekend trips around Florida. After looking at a lot of different brands and models, including Corvettes of course, I decided that I really like the Z4. I found a 3 year old Merlot Red 2003 Z4 3.0 Sport/Premium/Convenience packaged car in Naples, FL with only 23k on the clock. Garage kept. The rest is history. The car now has only 44k and you can have it after you pry it from from cold dead hands. A couple years later when my wife needed a new car I found a 3 year old CPO 2006 325i at Vista BMW with only 16k on the clock. It wasn't attracting buyers. Maybe because of the color, Sonora Gold, so I got a great deal on that car. After 4 years, still only 53K miles and going strong. Finally, after deciding to continue to keep the mileage down on the Z and the 325, I just recently purchased a not very used 2000 528iT wagon. It's this car that prompted me to join the club. After going though all of the fix up that you'd expect on a 13 year old E39 I discovered a head gasket leak. I joined the club in hopes of tapping into the knowledge and experience of fellow BMW owners in my area.. With 3 BMWs over 7 years old, I need all the encouragement I can find! My wife and I look forward to being members and hope to attend some local gatherings in the not too distant future.
