2018 BMW M2  [0.00]
My first BMW is my current OG M2. I always liked the way the 3-series cars looked, but the interior's always put me off. They seemed overly harsh, and just a generally unfriendly environment. I wanted an E30, E36, and an E46 really bad, but never got any of them. Then the E92 was on my list, but the car had gotten just way too big and heavy.

Thankfully the M2 is damn near perfect in just about every way, and has a very friendly interior.

1977 BMW 320i - similar to below

Was my first car, mid 1990's

Was a tank. Was pretty warm inside as i don't think the ac worked or worked very well. I called it the bavarian oven. I maxed it out one time on the freeway at 100mph (exactly so i reckon it had a speed limiter). Had fuel issues from what i think was the injectors. Not very reliable but was fun. One thing i did notice is that the steering felt very accurate and made the car feel fun to drive. After that i always wanted an M3 in Laguna Seca Blue (like most bmw fanboys). Then bought a 135 when i had a career, and now have an M2 Competition which i love.

my first BMW is a "big and heavy" e90 328i. It is not nearly as big and heavy as some "experts" like to say, it's with a couple of inches of e46's size, and this might be a wheel track. Somebody( Nathan's BMW workshop on youtube) has measured body sizes for e46 and e90 and found no discernible differences. This seems to be correct because when I parked next to e46, my e90 didn't seem larger at all.
Lastly, e90 wears its weight really well, just like an m2
Anyways, e46 with a lot of options might end up being heavier than basic stripped down e90. And I think most of the extra weight on e90 helped to solve subframe mount cracking issue e46 is notorious for, so that's a good thing.
Anyways, didn't want this to come across as negative, I guess I just wanted to say that it must be awesome to have an m2 as a first, or second or even 10th BMW. Hope you are enjoying it but don't believe everything some internet experts say about the e90s. e90s are awesome cars.

The E46 and E92 were just bigger or heavier (or both) compared to previous cars I had owned (RX-7/MR-2/Starion/S2000/Exige/STi), but so is the M2 for that matter (biggest and heaviest car I've owned to date). I think the difference is that the M2 feels smaller than the E92 M3, and it's so rigid that you'd never know it was 3,450 lbs (90 lbs lighter than the E92 M3).

I enjoy daily driving my M2, but I'd enjoy it much more if it were 3,200 lbs.

My F80 is my first ever dip into the bmw club. (I dont count my handed down E36 328i I had for 4 months haha). I got this because I need a better daily and something with 4 doors that would fit a car seat...1st time father as of 9/30.

So 4 doors and space were necessary but I still wanted something fun, manual, and modify-able that didnt make me feel like some young punk. So here we are and I couldnt be happier.

I grew up with BMWs in my family. From my grandparents, to my aunt, then my uncle, and my parents both drove them for years. My first one was an '02 325ci that I drove up until last year when it met its untimely death (a collision.). The car gave me countless miles and left me with grins for mostly all of them. I had to act quick to replace it and wound up with a WRX. While I enjoy the new car, I am missing my BMW. So once my lease is up I am going right on back to the Germans since NO ONE does it better!

Also, relatively new here, why don't the photos show up for me? They are blurred out with photobucket watermarked.

As a millennial, wait for a long time more, than 10+ years for my first BMW G20, 330 M-Sport edition with Excellence Package, coming from Mazda 3 GT.

Always enjoyed and loved new tech! F30 BMW generation was getting old..

I purchased new in 1978 or 79 a 318i. This was a long time ago but I remember considering it to be one of the finest vehicles I had owned to that point in my life. I foolishly sold the car to buy a new motorcycle, but it remained as a great memory.

My first was an 08 328i. Didn't quite realize the joy and ended up getting rid of it for an Infiniti G37 for all of a few months before I came to my senses and got my 13 328i, then my 19 X3 M40i, and about to order a G30.

My 1st BMW

At 56 years my 1st was a simple X5 as my DD and winter car. As I do quite a lot of the work on my cars, I got to know the BMW. Shortly after I got a 650ix to replace my 32 year old Porsche as my well weather driving car. Then got the itch and replaced the 650 with a M6. The M6 is a recent acquisition so no good pics yet. Then got BMWís for my kids in undergrad and grad level school.

My first BMW was a 2001 E46 330ci Alpine White. Absolutely loved that car. Had it for all of 6 months before a 16 year old kid ran a red light and T-boned me. RIP 330ci!

2007 e61 523i. Not the best driving experience since it is such a heavy car, but otherwise liked it a lot.
