My Ride: is blacker every day
23, bought it 2 months ago... bought it myself, ofcourse. Also bought my first bike, a Ducati Monster 600, last October. Didn't plan on buying the Bimmer, but my Honda was totaled and my 2-week-old-to-me Alfa crapped out (my fault) so I needed another ride for rainy / hungover days...

I am Media Analyst in a business-to-press relations office, but also a fulltime "student" at university (Communications Sciences). Basically I just want to get my Bachelor degree next year, and my Masters the year after so I can force a raise from my boss.

I must admit, I live on the cheap (my rent is $350 / month, my phone bill is 100% covered by the office, and my mom always brings me food because she can't stand watching me eat $2 burgers all the time ) so I can dispose a big % of my income on decadent stuff.


History (driving age is 18 over here) :

- 16 : 1990 Mini 998 (accidented, project)

- 17 : another Mini 998 (never started on it)

- 18 : 1991 Alfa Romeo 33 1,7ie

- 20 : 1993 Honda Concerto 1,5i (inherited)

- 22 (June '06) : 1991 Honda Concerto 1,6LX (totaled the previous one, liked it a lot so bought this beater for $900 just to get around town... ended up souping it up for over $3k and none of the mods was visual )

- 23 (February '07) : 1991 Alfa Romeo 155 V6 (totaled the second Honda too, it still drives well but the cost to make it pass inspection is not worth it any more. Drove this for 2 weeks and busted the right front up real good - swaybar mounts gone, driveshaft loose, rim bent... jumped a fvcking railway crossing that wasn't maintained properly :curse: )

- 23 (February '07) : 2001 BMW 325 Ci (need a ride and this came along nicely)

So ATM I have an inspection-failing Honda with tons of performance mods, an out of commission Alfa V6, the E46 and a slightly modified Monster... Damn, Im becoming my dad. He once had 11 (!!!) cars at once, most of them classics (MGB's, Austin Healy, Riley, Lancia, Alfa Romeo, a Bauer E30...). Sometimes I wished he just got a single classic supercar and called it a day.
