Blogging is an assignment in my English class. The assignment is to write many stories on a webpage. On mine, I will discuss the car and others like it. BMW’s 3 series e46 is an outstanding automobile. My car is one of the true examples of the quality and craftsmanship that BMW puts in there vehicles. My love for Bimmers has increased as I have grown older. Not too long ago I got the opportunity to sell my current car and buy a BMW, through many road blocks, I stand here today, the proud owner of one. I want to tell the story of how I got mine, where it stands today and how it won me over.
In September of 2008, I decided to sell my Ford Mustang, don’t get me wrong, it was a beauty, black with black rims, I had it looking nice. I had it for two years; the mileage was getting up there (for an American car). So I decided it was time to say goodbye. I put it up for sale on a Wednesday in my local neighborhood and by Friday I didn’t have any serious buyers. I had heard of this online selling, buying, wanted etc. web page. Therefore, I decided post my car online on Saturday morning and by that night I had a buyer at my house ready for pickup, no negotiating or anything. They offered what I was asking, so off they went.
Now, car less, I was on a mission. I had always wanted a foreign car, so I went online to start searching. I didn’t know what I wanted at first, but once I started looking at cars, and seeing what was available, I narrowed my search to the 3 series. Now knowing what I wanted, and having money hot in my pocket, I began looking at the four door 3 series. Since I didn’t sell the Mustang for much, I only had a little to buy my next one. I was looking at 1994 to 1998 e36 body style because for what they were selling for I could buy without having to add money. Throughout many hours of searching and searching, I hadn’t found anything that really jumped out at me.
Now Tuesday had come by and my father was leaving for vacation. It would be a week before I would be able to do anything; and a week without a car. Just my luck, I find my dream car! A 1999 BMW 328i, this car was amazing, black, with a shine that would hurt your eyes, this car was the classic, amazing, utmost luxury sedan that BMW had offered, and me, Kyle Edwards was just about to get it. This model was the first style for the new 3 series, and the similar body style had stayed the same till 2005 (keep in mind, that it undertook minor changes). I called my dad and told him about this unbelievable deal, and described the car, and as dads are, he asked me about the car and started to get my hopes up, and then he shoots them down. He tells me he’s not going to do anything while he’s on vacation. OK, so my heart just sunk, this car was an amazing deal, and I wasn’t able to do anything because my dad wasn’t in town. Might as well kiss it goodbye! How could a deal like that stick around till I could act on it? Well, the week slowly goes by and I keep calling the dealership, and every time they still have the car. My dad gets back on Sunday and the next day he wants to go look at the car. Bright and early Monday we get up and go look at the car. Pulling up the drive I see it, I couldn’t believe that was it, one of my dream cars before my eyes. It was almost too good to be true, the car looked perfect! We chat with the sales representatives and set out for a drive, prier, going through my head was, this car must drive like crap, or it doesn’t run right, I went through every possibility, scenario, everything. The car drove like a dream. We soon get back at the dealership and make the purchase!
Today, 8,000 miles later, the car is still perfect. My car has 155,XXX miles on it and it runs and drives like it was driven off the lot yesterday! My car is one true example the quality and craftsmanship BMW puts in their cars! Any American car with that many miles on it, may look like mine and even drive like it, but it’s hard to find one, and it’s been babied all its life. I expected my car to need a little elbow grease but it didn’t! This car makes me a believer on foreign automobiles, and I plan to own one for the rest of my life, the prices are higher (not much) but enough to make a difference, I’m willing to give it, you just can’t beat the quality in them.
