Was at Von's today morning to buy some Almond Milk when this random guy walks up to me and asks me :

Random guy : What's "1 ad dick"?

Me : You mean, 1addicts? It's a internet forum for BMW enthusiasts.

Random guy : Oh, i thought it was your own company or something.

Me : Haha.

I haven't had my car very long yet so this was my only odd comment:

I parked my 135i convertible next to a 128i convertible at Lowes the other day. I was packing up my stuff when the owner came out.

Guy: "Hey nice car!"

Me: "ha you too".

Guy: "I see you've got the hot rod model though, how many speeding tickets have you gotten in that thing?"

Me: "none".

A dude working the Carl's Jr drive thru asked me if my car was the new M3. Probably because I have a black vinyl roof.

I think they did pretty good on the M-sport bumper. It looks decently aggressive so I can see how Joe Schmo would think it's an M

Two WTF comments thus far among the all the other "I love the color combination" and "the red leather is absolutely gorgeous" comments. Both happened in the parking lot of a local supermarket.

Two women were walking their kids up the parking lot and one of them states "well I guess we felt the need to drive our race car to the store today." Bitch

The other was an old woman who exclaimed "oh, how cute!" I said, "yeah, cute like a pit bull."

I was told that, "your entry level BMW wouldn't be allowed in to my parents country club." He said it while he was waiting for a ride b/c he doesn't have a car.

My favorite was

Coworker: "So, that's got the same engine as my 335, but it's smaller and lighter?"

Me: "Yep."

Coworker: "Damn."

I really can't remember any comments that weren't positive.

I've only had mine for a month so not too many comments yet.
Just the usual "What's a 1-series?" and that white convertibles are girls cars.
Also seems despite the fact that no one seems to know the car lots of people want to race.
I think they see the car, think girls car and think they can embarrass me. I find it amusing.

Was finishing painting my rims out in the garage when this cute sales rep walked up to me and the convo went like this :

Sales rep : Hi, my names Heidi and I'm going door to door asking to see if your interested in our electricity saving outlets, do you have a minute?

Me : Sorry miss, not really interested...

Sales rep : Oh, thanks anyway, by the way, are you painting your rims?

Me : Yep, 7 hours in the process....

Sales rep : Wow, they look really good! Is this a hobby or something?

Me : Sort of...haha.

Sales rep : I wouldn't even trust myself putting duct tape on my car, let alone painting the rims! What kind of car is this?

Me : BMW 135i.

Sales rep : Oh, why is the roundels black and white? Isn't BMW blue and white?

Me : Yeah, I put a black vinyl over the roundels to make it stand out from the crowd .

Sales rep : Ah, custom! Gotcha! Well, I'll see you around!

Me : Have a good one.

"couldn't afford a 3?"

nah, nah man, them 328's are so much more expensive, being the most overproduced bmw in the world. they're so scarce you can nary get a look at them on the lots but once a ... minute.

3 weeks into owning my sti--unrelated to a point--i'm in a drive-thru and..
"your car is slow"
me: "pardon?"
"your car is slow. my friend's cobra is way faster"
me: "and you drive?"
"well, my friend's cobra is way faster."
me: "and you drive?"
"man, your car can't beat my friend's cobra"
me: "give me my food and stop talking about other peoples' cars. that's just sad."

the whole "my friend's car" schtick is the most pathetic thing i've ever experienced.

Me: About 400HP
Them: "Damn...at the front wheels right?"
Me: Lol... No, it's RWD.
Them: Ok. Then they stare at the car, for awhile.

"heard you bought a BMW, cool, which one?"
"a 135"
"oh a 1 series? my friend has one of those, a convertible one... it's such a girls car"
"lol cool story"

It would have taken too much effort with someone who's not into cars. everyone raises an eyebrow when it moves. that's one of the best things about this car to me
