Looks good the way it is!

Will you be adding lightness, or adding weight?

Here were my cars:

2008 e92 328i: my biggest regret. Went to test drive a 2008 yr 1 of the 1 135i and fell in love. Was convinced by my family that the 135i was too small. The spec was a BSM on coral red. My dream was Montego Blue on Boston Lemon :/ which never transpired. In 2010 I rode in my my buddies e92 m3 with full exhaust. It was from this point forward only one car was going to be next in line.

2010 e90 m3: This was the car that inspired me. Was the best, the most thrilling, and had the most maintenance drama(thank goodness for all the diy threads). Car was getting long tooth and nailed by 2016 so I supercharged it. Smiles came back and I t was fun again . Best moment was being lined up against a stock e60 some randoms just purchased to get blown away by a e90. In 2015 I purchased a mk7 Golf R for more DD duties. It got to the point where the M felt too precious to keep putting miles coupled with the 200mile range with my lead foot so it became a garage queen. Had to make a financial sacrifice to start a business so it had to go. My wife actually cried the day it was flat bedded away :/. Favorite mods were KW Clubsports, BBS CHR, ESS Vt1, and Dinan exhaust.

2017 F80 zcp: this was my first leased car. This car I had the least attachment to. I would compare this relationship with a hypothetical one with a stripper. All the short test drives were flashy and felt great as the initial torque, the looks, and tech out of the box were solid. The e90 was the one that got away. The first true love I let go only for eternal resentment. Once the f80 zcp lust expires I was ready to move on. 1 year after acquisition it was gone. Have not missed the car since. I wonder how much of this was because it was a lease and the mental thought of watching the equivalent monthly mileage limits may have contributed.

Non bmws(both currently owned):
2016 Golf R purchased on new yrs eve of 2015. Nearly totaled the car very next day hitting a ice patch under a bridge while on the oem summers. Was surprised it came with summer tires during winter time and no one at the dealership advising me of that. Learned quickly. Cars has been a pocket rocket a to b commuter with jb1. Just enough to be explosive but not too much to be trouble some. Definitely have my e90 m a run in the low end. Car has loads of grip but lack steering feedback(better than f80). Car is still going strong to this day. Only parts out of ordinary maintenance was the water pump failing and having replaced the windshield 3 times. This glass is so shitty. This was the car I have kept the longest at 6.5 years. Also the only car I still canít find the best seating position for comfort. Every time my wife drives the seat settings change, but the car was never offered with seat memory.

2015 958.2s Cayenne S: with a child on the way and having two dogs a suv was the obvious option. After the M cars my choices were CPO x5m or Cayenne S based on 60k cap I had established. Wasnít able to find a local x5m to drive even tho there were deals nearby. Ultimately, the 2015 x5m felt too dated from the interior perspective imo. Came across a loaded 2015 cayenne S for 50k (90k msrp) that I couldnít pass up. A sq5 was a near contender but I couldnít pull the trigger at 65-70k msrp. So far have loved the experience. The service department had its fare share of snobbery. Surprised the car has no creaks or rattles to this day. My other cars developed rattles in 2-3 years. Steering feedback is surprisingly awesome beating my Golf r and f80.

Whatís next:
Macan EV - 2024 launch
G80 xdrive ZCP

2000 - Z3 3.0 Maroon stick purchased 12/28/02, 40k miles. Fun car, wife complained couldn't fit anything in it when we went on vacation. My only issue was my golf clubs would only fit without my driver.
2008 - 135 Vert Silver/Black, 31k miles, SMG. Purchased 12/17/11. Took it cross country, 7.5 k miles in 5 weeks, with no issues with a small tent, cooler, sleeping bag, and Colman stove, all I could fit, Hit most of the National Parks.
2011 - 135 Vert White/Coral, 29.5k miles, DCT. Purchased 12/26/13. Love the White with Coral and the DCT. Did another cross country for 4 weeks hit the parks I missed the first trip.
2013-135is Vert Silver/Coral, 2,887 miles, DCT. Purchased 12/29/14. Every once in a while I would look for a 135is Vert. Almost bought a Blue one in Tennessee but they wanted to charge me their sales tax whereas in South Carolina the most you paid at that time was $300, big difference. Bought it from Mercedes West Palm who are a Mercedes, Maserati, Ferrari Dealer and part of New Country where I bought my Z3 in Ct. so the had the service records. You might see a pattern, I always try to by at the end of the year. Car sticker was $54,789 I bought it for $ 36.6. Now have 86k miles but no cross country trip yet. I'm 75 and think I have one more trip in me. It still puts a smile on my face every time I fire it up and hear that P/E. One of the best sounding BMW's. Buddy has a 911 and we did the Tail of the Dragon last month Great roads up there

I have had two. My first BMW was a 2013 328Xi and I ordered it while I was stationed in Germany. A lot of Autobahn miles in that car. My second BMW was a 2020 M240Xi. I am currently in the allocation waiting line for an M240Xi.

Wow!!! I count 23 BMW's!!!

That's in average more than one per year! Are you a car dealer or you just trade BMW's like phones

Any chance of some pictures of the most wanted BMW's you had?
