Subject: Bmw hater
I’ll be honest I never understood the appeal of the bmw. So my friend has a bmw he would always talk about it blah blah I gotta bmw. Blah blah bmw he became the poster child of a bmw driver. I remember driving on the highway with him I’m in the passenger seat and in my mind “I’m like why is this idiot driving like this”. Also, I remember another time when I owned my last car a Hyundai and I was barley keeping up with him and I was like “damn one day he’s gonna crash that car he drives so reckless”.
Fast forward I’m in the market for a used car. At first I wanted a 2017 e class Mercedes man I damn near went crazy trying to track down this car for what I was willing to pay for it. I change my mind and said forget it I’m a look at bmw’s also. I find one bingo go out to go see it at the dealer ship it was a c.p.o 330i. I loved the look of the car but now it’s time to test drive.
Immediately as soon as I press the button to start the car I hear the engine growling I’m like what the hell is this I never knew bmws sound like this. I’m in a trance state the moment I look down to put it in drive I’m confused I have to hold the button to shift it into drive what I’m not use to this. I turn out of the dealer ship I feel the weight of the steering wheel. I was amazed it’s like a hidden world I was left out of immediately I’m in love. I drive the car down the block the gas pedal is so responsive when press the brakes and slow down it feels like the car has a suction on the road.
I put the car in sport the steering wheel gets stiffer and the car gets faster. Mind you at the time I’m watching manny from YouTube the guy with all the super cars I’m just amazed.
From this moment immediately in my mind I’m never driving another car that I personally own unless it’s a bmw. In the future I want to test drive a Mercedes though to be honest. But now I definitely understand the obsession for the car I was the biggest hater. But, now I’m like a former drug addict in the bmw church I preach about it all the time drive a bmw you never wanna drive nothing else period.

Subject: Considering a ‘21 4 series over a model 3
First post here. Never owned a Bmw, but I really want another coupe. Just interested in hearing from 4 series owners. Any thoughts really.
I have to admit the new design is growing on me. I’ve turned my head a few times when I see one blacked out on the street or driving by me on the freeway.
If I had my way an M440i would be a treat.

Subject: 2017 M2 or 2021 Sti
Which one would you buy today?
M2 Base- $50,000, 28k miles - Overpriced due to market - Little dings here and there, overall great condition - DCT
Sti Limited - $45,500, NEW - $1,800 under MSRP - Brand new - Manual
I’m considering a lot of factors in my decision. One thing that doesn’t bother me too much but my girlfriend mentioned was that perception of the Sti is not great. Also, we have an X3 so the Subaru being an AWD is a plus but not really a must.
My top concern is that the market will normalize/correct in the coming months/years and I will have significantly overpaid for the M2. Would appreciate thoughts/opinions. Thanks!
