My Ride: 2001 BMW 330xi
My new additction

Hello, guys. I just purchased my first non-US/Asian (why is Japanese blocked out) car - a 2001 330xi with 115k miles.
Ok, I wanted something drivable in the snow. I had a 4 cylinder Wrangler before, and it was NOT designed for snow even tho its got 4WD. The 4WD only works up to 55MPH and the short wheelbase makes the handling very scary sometimes (very quick fishtailing).
So, I sold it. In the summer, I drive my RX8, but shes too pretty to do grocery shopping (idiots dinging your doors). I also want the handling cuz I am an aggressive driver (no speeding, just taking corners faster).
I settled down to this 330xi that I found in a decent condition for a decent price ($8400).
Anyways, I wanna say I like it so far. It's got little faults (emergency/lock buttons dont work, clown nose dont flash when locked maybe cuz the remote start, keyless works intermediately, CD changer does not work could be due to previous owner installing XM radio, oil sensor, leaking VCG, ATF needs changing, needs new front and back rotors/pads), but all of them is expected since its 10 years old, and I am planning to fix them.
Here is a pic.
