When you find excuses to take your girlfriends 128 instead of your 335... shit did I just say that?

Can shift into reverse within 100msec of starting the car, DTC turned off and sport mode on withouit even looking before I flip it in S.

When cruising and going down steep grade, I shift into N and back to S. If only I had a button on the steering wheel. Can imagine eveything on the stering wheel like F1. I'll add this to my project list. Sorry 6MT guys, you'll get less buttons to play with.

Just thinking. If I rewire the D to be S and when you get out of Park and selects sport mode. Now this is worth trying.

Any body have a schematic of DCT shifter?

Feeling a rush every time I see a 1 on the road...in motion or parked...and if parked, having to check it out. Seriously...this is an addiction, and I love it.

Leaving a pic of your own car and someone else 1er parked next to each other in the company parking lot. Listing the specs/mods of you car on the bottom of the pic.

Then 3 days later having the same thing returned, different pic of both cars, with the other guys specs/mods....

I've already convinced 2 other people to choose the 1 series as their next car (just by giving them rides,) and I've only had mine for 1 month.

Does that count?

Getting caught out from passing randoms constantly for doing the not-so-subtle 'look back and stare' at my own 1er every time I get out of the car.

Sometimes I walk down to the garage for no other reason but to drool over my 135i for a few minutes and then go back inside.

My sister came over one day unannounced, caught me in the garage just standing there staring and asked "spending quality time with your car?"

d'oh!

Never done that one but I do spend quality time often as I mod it.

Making sure that whenever she is parked on a NYC street that she wears more bumper armor than a police officer wears on his chest.

What did they drive prior? I shifted many to Bimmers, but no 1er yet. I'm such a failure.

Strategically park the car at work where I can see her from three spots. Walk a funny pattern to get to my office or visit people just to get a glimpse or just to know she is OK. Sometimes park facing forward, for a change I get to peak at her ass. I think I'm sick.

I tell my girlfriend, mom, sister, family, friends I forgot to lock my car but I really didn't.
