Please take a moment to introduce yourself and share some details about your BMW 3-Series!
My name is KarenS and I am the host of the Edmunds.com Owner's Clubs. Please let me know what discussions you would like to see in your Club folder. I will create them ASAP. You may want to take a look through the other clubs to get ideas for discussions.
Also, if you are interested in a live chat, I can arrange that for you. All Club chats are set up on
4:00-5:00 pm PT/7:00-8:00pm ET
5:00-6:00pm PT/8:00-9:00pm ET
6:00-7:00pm PT/9:00-10:00 ET
7:00-8:00pm PT/10:00-11:00pm ET
(The latter may be rather late for East Coasters, but is available if you want.)
Let me know if you are interested in a chat and the day/time convenient for you.
Looking forward to meeting everyone!

I'm honored! My name is bornagain from America's Finest City, San Diego, CA. I have a '98 328i, cosmos black metallic, light gray leather, HK upgrade w/6 CD changer, premium package, OBC, heated seats (like I'll EVER use those!), fold down rear seats, front/side hairbags, sunroof, blah, blah, blah. I really like the black because all of the TRIM matches!
I actually have been staying away from the BMW 3-series discussions because 90% seem to be new buyers worrying that they are paying $100 more than someone else. You're buying a $35K car , ferchrissakes! I prefer discussions on mods, like the "gearhead" topic, and topics regarding care/maintenance. I tend to hide out in News & Views. Nice to meet you Karen!

Hi! I am yet an owner (but will be in June!!). I have ordered a 325xi/Black Sapphire Metallic/Gray leather/PP/CWP/Xenon/Steptronic. Needless to say I am verrrrrrrrrrryyy excited and the wait is just killing me! My life is at a standstill! I am in New Jersey, so hopefully I can just pick it up from the dockyard! (Just kidding)

I admire your choice of colors
I think the black looks the "classiest" or "richest" of all the Bimmer colors. I guess that's why most limo's and mob cars are black!
The other colors appear more "sporty", however.
June is a long ways off but I can assure you it will be worth the wait!

My name is Steve (but just call me Obi!), and I own a 1990 BMW M3. It is all stock (I have yet to do upgrades.) and only has 20,700 miles on it. It is BY FAR the coolest car I have ever owned. It is Alpinweiss II with Nuetral Leather interior.
Good to be here!

Owner of a Fern Green/Sand leather 2001 325i.
No packages! Love that naked steering wheel!

No packages?? Does that mean you can just hose it out when the interior gets dirty?? Drain plug on the floor, no passenger seats??

I'm Maria, a proud owner of a 2001 330 coupe, Black in and out (my favorite color) with aluminum trim, steptronic, sport package, moonroof, and CD/HK audio.
Dealer installed: front and rear spoiler, aluminum shifter knob, aluminum e-brake handle, luggage mat.
Aftermarket: Racing Dynamics front strut tower brace
I'm a car enthusiast and by far this is the most fun car I've owned. Next one on my list is the 2003 M3 with SMG. Can't wait!
See my links in the Photo Gallery section for some pics. Sorry, haven't gotten around to updating them all.

Please let me know if there is anything you need or would like to have included in your club folder.

I'd like to know if there are any events where Bimmer owners get together and do driving trips, they usually take place in scenic areas. Heard of any functions like this?
