I'm talking to some guy and I tell him I drive a BMW. He says "What kind?" I say "330i."

He goes "Really? Cool...........Never heard of it." Yeah, not really too outrageous, but its the only thing so far.

In my 3000GT VR4 Spyder, I was driving really slow down this residential street where some younger kids were playing, and one by one they stopped, and each one pulled a . Balls stopped bouncing, voices stopped talking. As I went past the last kid, he said "NICE FERRARI!!!" A bunch of people have asked me if it was a rear-engine car or an exotic car because the trunk is very long. The hardtop roof has to fold into the trunk.

I've got the same thing before! 19" Hamann HM2's powdercoated "texture" black. Most people loved them, and I even got over 3k when I sold them. (see below)

I usually get positive remarks toward my car, but the I did get one bad comment about my M3 from an obvious hater. He said it was the color of Gerber Baby food! I laughed because it was funny!

One time in my 330ci (as pictured below), I was leaving the club and in the parking lot one of the bouncers goes "It's not a real BMW unless it's an M3", then he proceeded to get into some bucket ass car. I yelled, "you work at this ****ty ass Club metro, and drive a bucket, yet you have the nerve to try and clown someone??? Yeah, he had his nerve!

My dad thought I was dumb for spending that on a car that depreciates in value. I was like, "well I can't afford one that doesn't."

This coming from a man who spent $500k ona motor home and spends $10-12k a year in maintenance and mods.

My wife's friend said never did like BMWs when she saw it, only to follow with, "Can I drive it?"

My response: No!

Yesterday some guy said, "That's nice, do you like it?"

He just looked at us laughing and then he got back into his pickup and drove away.....what a dumbass!!

I've heard it online a few times, but never in person. She's been named (tentatively) Big Bird, cause nothing else fits her.

Sounds like a great BMW commercial! It's the kind of commercials BMW ought to be making instead of those lame-arse commercials where you just see the narrow twisty road and that cheezeball music they play with it.

I mean, they're trying to market the 3 Series to peeps in our age group (20s and 30s) so they need to end the old fart commercials and get with the program!

...oh, and they should fire Chris Bangel.


Didn't mean to veer off the subject.

I was filling up at a gas station, and these dudes in a box chevy with 22 inch rims that look like they were rubbing the wheel well more than the road says, "man u need some 22's on that new 5 series". So I'm like naw I ordered 23's and there like "dang i aint know those new bimmers can do 23's"

Another is when I was at a gas station and I pulled up with my music loud. So while I'm pumping gas, this guy is like "how much u paid for it, and i'm like 40k. He says "I would have got that new s500 for that price"v

Just seems like everybody loves to say something at the gas station

One time I was driving around and a valet parker ran up to me at a stop and started knocking on my windows...he was like "Hey man this is an M3 right?" and I was like "um no it's a 330Ci" and then he's like "How did you mount your Euro plate?"

I told him I got a mounting bracket with it and I used the holes already drilled in my front bumper to mount it...how he couldn't figure this out on my own is beyond me...

He then proceeded to tell me about his "crazy modded" 318ti with the M-Sport Package and how he took off the 318 badge and put the ///M badge on it...I was like "wow that sounds cool man see you later"
