Okay, 'fess up. You named you 1er. What is his/her name?

I tried to find a female name to go with the obligatory "her" pronoun when referring to the car, but I just couldn't, despite some people thinking the 1er is feminine or a "chick car" (what, just because it's small? what are YOU compensating for, needing a big car?).

I ran through the gamut of German and Viking names (I know, but they seem appropriate) to find something appropriately masculine (there is just nothing about the 135 that isn't masculine, no disrespect to the 128, which I have never spent any time with - I'm sure it's plenty ballsy too)...
Maybe I was watching Vikings too much when I was trying to settle on a name, but my black-on-black 2012 135i Mspt 6MT is named:

My kids call my car Mommy. No, traded in the kids for the car.

Her name is Isabelle, but most people just call her Izzy.

My old e30 IX was named Henry by previous owners little girl and the mrs tried to name the new 135 something stupid I can't remember but we settled on Heinrich and it suits him well. We miss Henry too.

I like the Deiter name up there not bad.

Mr Pitt, as in money pit.

Since Nov 2013, purchased in the following order:
1) 4 winter tires and rims
2) performance exhaust
3) PPK1
4) 4 Michelin Super Sport summers
Not counting the fuel costs, it was worth it.

Ya, maybe no name is better. =P

Plus, you can then sing, I've driven through the desert in a car with no name...it felt good to be out of the rain....
