When you memorize the smilie names instead of selecting them from the pop-up

You get pissed at people slamming your doors because it is one step closer to a new window regulator.

Passengers are an annoyance

Your garage/bedroom looks more like a parts department than the dealership.

You have the e46fanatics background

When you have the Vanos problem?
(That was stupid)

No.. It's more like, when you need to put on wax after every car wash..
When you throw your cars in corners and liking it.
When you zoom past everyone

when you just spent 90mins on the DMV website crating a new vanity plate for your car and hoping it would be approved. (JUst got my approved BMW E 46)
when you just spend 45mins reading from pg 1 to pg 12
when your parts guy at the stealership says"What can I get for u TODAY when he look up and realize it's you AGAIN.
when you forget your login password when you try to login from a unfamiliar p/c b/c you are always on the site, it remembers you.
when you buy a gucci wallet for your gf, you picture a m3 steering wheel next to it.

When youve owend 3 bmw's and all of them had subframe probles

when you constantly say BMW's are the best cars on the road while your subframe is squeeeking and your idle is all over the place and your window striping is falling down and your parts cost more then ferrari's and it always needs some fixin and your paycheck is gone before you see it to pay off this damn awsome car and when you look at another e46'er and say "pu$$y" for no reason.

When someone looks at your car when your driving and and it makes you feel like your the $hit even though your fat and ugly and have a tiny P3nis

- Your girlfriend is jealous of your relationship with your car.

- more than half your family now drives a BMW, because of your influence


I'll park next to an E46 because I know he won't ding my door.

awesome... Here are some:

...when you read and know all about mods for a 2004 ZHP, but you really own a 2000 323i without any hope of buying anything else in next 10 years...

...when you can't afford to mod anything other than a $5 Lowes clutch stop (which you take great pride in, and tell people all about, even though it cost almost nothing, and you most certainly didn't come up with it), but you still claim that your stock, entry-level, 15-inch wheels, no sway bars, e46 is better than 95% of the cars out there, and that the remaining 5% are simply the better BMWs, anyways, to which car family you belong already...

...when you know what a "$5 Lowes clutch stop" is...

You know your a fanatic when:
1) You goto the dealer and actually know what ZHP means.
2) You know all the differences of a CSL
3) You know more than one use for a golf tee
4) You have more pics of your car than your girlfriend and some with your girlfriend
5) You can tell if it's leather
6) You know everything about your car but still can't figure out why BMW made the climate controls have a temp. gauge and the warm and cold knob on the air vents.
7) You ***** slap people that say "hey nice beamer" and tell them its a bimmer ***!
