Got my BMW

I'm so lucky to have an awesome Mom! It's a 2001 5 series with 50K miles. Automatic (cause we all know I can't drive a manual) It's not brand new, but I don't care. I love it anyways!! Driving it last night was amazing. I made tons of pit stops to show my friends. Even a 2001 really is The Ultimate Driving Machine


BMW with my old Honda in the background.


The key even looks cute!


I love the interior! It's leather. Took me a while to figure out how to turn on the bright lights on the way to Wal-Mart last night.



Little salute since the other BMW thread required one.

Oh I wont (knocks on wood) I took it to Wal-Mart last night and I parked completely on my own row in the back where zero cars were so no one would ding my doors. I come back out and there's 3 cars parked next to me.

The only thing it was missing was the BMW floor mats. I'm going to look on E-Bay tonight after we get back from Mothers Day at Grandmas house. Unless anyone else can post a link for me if they get bored.

Nice. I think the last gen 5-series had some of the best styling of most cars around today. But that's just my opinion.

I agree. I love those little LED style sidelight bulbs in the front of later model versions (not sure if this one contains them, it was 2001 that they were introduced I think...)...they look amazing when illuminated!

Lovely car, Synthetic, take good care of her!

My only problem with cars is remembering to change the damn oil. I remember when I got my civic 3 years ago my Mom asked me if I'd ever changed the oil since it was running bad and said "Not in past 10 months Mom." I learned to try to change it every 3 months lol.

Although this thing kills me in gas. Last night filling up premium was $51.00 for 13 gallons. Good God. I'm so glad Mom pays the car note.

Chances are, your 5-Series will tell ya when she needs an oil change!

That would be nice! I havent even read the owners manual yet. I cant wait to find out all what this car can do! Took me forever to figure out how to unlock the doors from the inside to let my friend in lol.. Im used to it being on the passenger door of my honda but in a BMW its in the middle of the car.
