Introducing myself

Hello fellow 1'ers,

My name is Ronald and I am and addict...to BMW that is

I live in Kaiserslautern and this is my first BMW ever. I have a wife and two kids that eat into my"mods" funds, but I love them to death. I know very little about cars and modding ( I am a computer nerd). I am quickly learning and asking a lot of questions...I think I get people mad sometimes on the amount of questions.

I am happy to be here and to join the European group. I already marked my calendar for two events and just playing the waiting game.

I took the time to take some pics yesterday. It was cold as hell and my car was dirty, these are the things I do for your entertainment.

THIS IS MY BABY...her name is Asa Akira. Hope you enjoy

Welcome

Ask away...that's how we all learn...cept for Dack...he been known to sleep on owner's and service manuals and in the morning knows everything he needs to know about the topic ....he's the guy to ask.

We try to do things low budget so having two little ones is no big deal, many of our members here have kids. Mine's getting ready to go off to college so some of my modding $$ is going stateside.

We do a lot of trading back and forth as we always seem to be changing something.

So, welcome and looking forward to meeting you and the family one of these days. For some local connections, look up Ezeedee and KCskyrider there in K-town.

LMAO!!! I want to be like Dackel, just sleep on books and know everything...would have been nice during college

Don't know if you knew this but Ezeedee (Derek) went back stateside. I was pissed about that. I was using and abusing him on info, lol

I cannot wait to get to some meets I want to see what other peeps have done to their rides. This will be epic!

You're in the best sub forum of the Bimmer forum to learn anything you need to know and get together with the people who will show you the way. Dave, Nick and the rest of them will fold you into the Fam.

Man I miss Germany....haha

Thank you for the warm welcome. What I have learned so far is that if I stand really close beside Dackel for a prolonged perid of time hopefully his smarts will rub off on me

I am new here as well. I just purchased my 1er a couple weeks ago. For some reason i cannot post a new topic so I thought I would just introduce myself here as well.

I live in Spangdahlem and cannot get enough of my new purchase! My first BMW and I love it. Driving it on the autobahn is like nothing else!

I will get some pics up ASAP. I've been reading the threads a lot lately and I am always up for a meet if I am off work. I've never been into a car like I am this one. The addiction grows on you quickly!

How often do people hold meet ups? I'm guessing turn out is much better in the summer when trips to the ring are possible and the roads are nicer.
