How do you pronounce "Bimmer"?

I did a Google but nothing decisive came up. Just seems to be a matter of opinion from what I found.

I have always understood it to sound like "Beamer" or "Beemer" with a long "E" sound.

My gf insists it is "Bihmmer" with a short "i" sound.

I go out of my way to avoid saying this word for the very reason you posted. I just go with "BMW." There's always going to be some douchebag who calls you out if you say it the wrong way.

How can your GF ask such questions when she has your dick in her mouth?

haha, maybe that's why she pronounces it "bihmmer"

"beamer" involves more teeth.
