Hi, I am the proud owner of my first BMW. I have a 09 328i sedan in Alpine White. I live in Illinois, out in the country. I bought my car from Isringhausen Imports in Springfield. I feel kind of strange in this new world. I'm used to driving Chevrolets and Fords. I've always wanted a BMW since I can remember. I'm about 7 years away from retiring from my job as a state trooper. This is my retirement present to myself. I look forward to getting involved with the Illini chapter. So far, every BMW owner I have talked to have been extremely helpful and enthusiastic.
