Mine I have had up forever since i really don't pay attention. Its a freeze frame from a Killers video (band I like) with the lead singer. I really need to change it it is so old. My last one was a pic of my Cockatiel Scooter.

Oh, Gustav, what a wonderful, picturesque place to live. And your little trout river is in the photo too. Was it near the bridge that Gustav cadged the sandwich?

So, Bogo, which BMW is your husband's favorite? I've got the Darth Vader, but I don't drive it everyday - don't want to run a lot of miles up on it, lol.

I've got a Bimmer on my screen saver too: http://www.chazhound.com/pictures/sh...cat=500&page=2
I originally put the profile of Shiva up, thinking Charley would like that better, but he wanted the one of Bimmer!

I LOVE that photo of the Pharoah Hound, Emma. From the description, they share something with Filas . . . they aren't really dogs, they're very large cats wearing dog suits!

Hmmmm....Renee...which BMW doesn't he like would be a better question.

If he could have any one he wanted, he would have an M3. Or maybe and M5 if we are getting really crazy. But he always loves the M3s. He also really likes the new 3 series too. If I was rich, my preference is the new 6 series, boy those are hot. But to be truthful, he has a true love for each and every BMW. He loves the old ones, the new ones, the fast ones. In fact, the only ones he doesn't like are the ones that are moded so much that they don't resemble the true BMW anymore. We found an awsome one in TN for $5,000. It was a 1992 but this guy had moded it SO much it looked brand spanking new. But it was too lowered and and a body kit on the bumpers, which we would have removed. It did look sharp if you had removed those bumpers and gone back to stock and we could have sold the wheels that were on it and gone back to stock on those too. But it did have 225,000 miles on it, and I just don't know how much longer it could really go, even though he had changed just about EVERYTHING in it. So, it was a no go. The next car we get will most likely be one, not a new one because we can't afford that, and besides I think new cars are a complete waste of money, but that is neither here nor there. He has a bimmer forum he goes on and he has found several and what is nice about those is that most of the guys on there take really good care of their BMW's. So we will probably just get a nice used one that is several years old one day.

My little, beat-up 318 that is my every-day driver (sometimes 200 miles or more a day) has over 200,000 miles on it. Doesn't use oil, no smoke, runs like a trooper. The thing about the ones that have been modified is you want to be sure the person who did the mods has a clue. You can get into real trouble when some idiot gets in there and starts messing around.

If you buy one of the higher end 5s used you've got a pretty good shot that they've been well maintained; it's when you get into the lower tiers that you have to wonder about the maintenance. With proper maintenance though, they're pretty much bullet proof. The 4.0 liter motor is the only one that was really ever "iffy." The 6 series can get expensive as far as maintenance. The little 1.8 liter cars are bullet proof. They've been making that motor FOREVER and the bugs are totally out of it. Parts are dirt cheap too. We had to replace the clutch and two front wheel bearing assemblies when we bought the 318 (for $700) and the parts were only a little over $200. I just picked up a set of Recarro seats for the front for $75. Comfy!

Yeah, I'd love to have an M. But I want an M Coupe. My dream car, lol. And an early '70s 911. And a 944Turbo. And a mid '80s Mercedes 5.0 liter ragtop. The unrealistic one though, would be an AMG Mercedes . . . ragtop . . . All straight shift, of course!

LOL!! you would fit right in with us. You and I could talk dogs forever, and you could talk cars with my husband. You like the same type of cars!
