A Warning to Bmw Owners

A Warning To All BMW Owners

Usually I don't get on my "soapbox" to vent after hearing or reading editorials on TV or in the newspapers. But after recently reading an article about luxury cars, it made my blood boil. The "author' of an article I read was so grossly off the mark that I have to set the record straight.

Some people think that the only reason that someone buys a BMW is to impress their neighbors, friends, family and co-workers. To me all of these are great reasons for BMW ownership. The fact is, my feelings are that if you can afford to pay $30,000 to $90,000 or more for a BMW, you deserve the right to "impress" all who know you. You've earned it.

It goes with the territory-right?

You might find this hard to believe, because I did, that some people actually think it's better to buy a less expensive or "ordinary" car. Come on. You know the one's I am talking about. Some think that the only function of a car is to get you from point A to point B. The reasoning is that if you only pay $20,000 for your car you can bank the difference or invest the extra money to make it grow for you long term. This approach might be true. But my question is-------

Why would you want to do that?

There is not one BMW owner that I know who would rather drive an "ordinary" vehicle all of their lives in return for saying that they are not impressed or enjoy the benefits of owning a BMW. When was the last time you heard a BMW owner say, "Gee, I wish I had bought something cheaper"? If you have been on this planet for more than ten minutes you know that you will never hear anything that ridiculous.

And as for the money you would save by not buying a BMW, let's look at the trade-offs. Do you really want to trade a few extra "bucks" and a dull lifestyle for the lifetime thrill and excitement in your BMW. Can any amount of "invested money" make up for the boring years of driving just "the ordinary" car. I don't think so.

Current and future BMW owners beware.

There will always be those that look down on you because you made the decision to be "Special' instead of ordinary. Because you made the decision to work hard and reap the benefits of your labor. Because you made the decision to have a "lifestyle" not just a life. Because you made the decision to make your dreams come true instead of fearing to dream.

To all those who decide to deny themselves the passion of a BMW, let me ask you this. When you're 90 and on your deathbed with your life flashing before your eyes, do you really think that you will want to say " I'm glad I saved a few extra bucks by owning an ordinary car all my life". Or will you die with regret knowing that you could have had the "BMW Experience".

To current and future BMW owners I say, "Be warned that some people will never understand your need for feeling the "BMW Experience". And to those misguided people I say-------

Get over it.
