BMW: the (de)generations of design.

I grew up with BMW as my favourite marque; mainly because of my undying love for the E30 M3 when i was a young child.  I’m not sure why I wasn’t like other children who loved Corvettes and Porsches, because I wasn’t.  I still remember my parents buying me a radio controlled car when i was very young (9 or 10?), and I didn’t choose the red Porsche, i chose the dark grey E30 M3.  I wish i still had that radio controlled car…

Anyways, BMW is a company who i’ve watched deteriorate in charm.  They may still build very fast and potent automobiles—-but they leave me feeling numb.  The modern BMW design is stale and very non-BMW in many ways.  To be honest, the 1-series is the only BMW I am really a fan of—-and that is a great car to drive as well.

Here are 2 photos.  One of all the 5-series and one of all the 3-series.   The best ones are on the left side of the pictures.

wheeler dealers: BMW E30 325i Touring

After Top Gear, one of my favourite automotive shows is Wheeler Dealers. Broadcasted out of the UK (as expected), it starts Mike Brewer and his trusty mechanic Ed.  They buy cars cheap, do some work on em, fix em up, and try to sell em for a proflit.  They pick up some pretty great stuff.  Makes me jealous of the UK used market!

In this episode, they get the rare-in-the-USA BMW E30 Touring for 900 quid!

(PARTS 1 through 5).
