By the way, the 90'* Bonneville'* took many styling cues from their European competitors. I've driven 740 IL'* and SSEi/SLE/SSE'*.. must say, I liked the GM product more. It was more powerful, more comfortable, more features, safer, less expensive, and had the world-renowned 3800 V6.

Most of my parts costs less than 50 dollars, I get 35mpg on the highway with 87 octane, and I've beaten a later model 530i. Not only that, but I don't feel like a yuppie d**chebag driving my car

Yeah I hate those people too... I still don't like bmws newer than mine.... which was in fact designed by god.... kinda...

Also your comment could be countered with someone saying the bonneville is a granny car. Which is in fact not entirely true. There are several BMW communities just like your Bonnie community. There are the stereotypes and then true enthusiasts.

That was funny

I actually really want an 06+ 335i, but only if i was sure i could afford the parts AFTER the warranty and maintenance program ends..and of course..the insurance.

Yeah, I've known some good guys that own Bimmers, but the majority are of the stereotype So, uhh, you have some pics of the Bimmer? Or are you just gonna brag about it?

Oh, and where'* Pinky? Maybe he can tell of his adventures with his old 325i

Well really old pics... Kind of hard being a plebe. I'll give ya what I have here though... Not very clean so bear with me. We've also repainted the hood which makes it look alot better. http://picasaweb.google.com/exilionp...27571546275858

EDIT: wow I need to take new pictures... The painted hood looks so much better... Also after I graduate I will most likely do this http://www.turbochargingdynamics.com/video/MOV01159.MPG

Lower insurance rates. The seats fold forward and return to their original position. Tons of trunk space too.
